This luxury Courchevel hotel sits on the piste side with views of the pine forests and slopes. Cedar-panelled ceilings and walls create a cosy chalet feel while large picture windows draw the eye out to the magnificent scenery – even from the bathtub in many Suites.
Ideally situated on the Bellecôte ski slope, the hotel is a lively home of glowing warmth, a stroll from the epicentre of one of Europe’s most fashionable and exclusive resorts, Courchevel 1850, with access to some of the most exceptional skiing in Europe directly from the front door.
They have 31 bedrooms and suites, all decorated in lavish fabrics and natural wood and stone. 24 of the rooms have balconies and all of them have a separate dressing area and are equipped with IDD phone, television with CD and DVD player, refrigerator and a safety deposit box. The bathrooms are finished in rose-tinted granite and offer twin washbasins, a deep bathtub and a separate shower.
There is a swimming pool and spa on site which opens until 21:00 every day. Spa treatments are available in two massage rooms, one massage/facial/treatment room and one Thai/Shiatsu room. Choose from a range of treatments to suite your needs. To reduce muscular fatigues, calm the nervous system, improve circulation and reduce stress from a day on the slopes, the Massage sportif would be your perfect choice. Other treatments include foot reflexology, Shiatsu and Thai massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and other massage and beauty treatments.
Outside guests are welcome from 09:00 to 16:00 and according to availability. For massage, beauty treatments or hammam (all with appointments) however, pool entrance remains strictly forbidden at all times.
At the granite-stone lounge bar or the intimate library you can have the Aman signature cocktail, featuring local blueberries, violet flower extract and a generous dose of champagne.
The restaurant, open to guests and non-residents, serves contemporary French cuisine with emphasis on organic local produce, the region’s renowned Beaufort cheese and locally reared meat and poultry. Complementing the cuisine are the cosy setting, small candlelit tables, an array of regional Savoyard wines that perfectly suit the menu, and the locally distilled génépi.
Try the sautéed duck foie gras with pain perdu, seasonal Savoy apples and Grand Marnier, or the morels with velouté, egg and crusty black bread.

The main lift hub for Courchevel is conveniently in the centre of the resort. There are a choice of 4 lifts directly from the snow front or if you would rather start skiing straight away you can ski down to Courchevel Village and Le Praz. The first of the four main lifts is the Chenus Bubble Lift which leads over towards the Col de la Loze Chair Lift connection with Meribel and La Tania. The Verdons Bubbe Lift which takes you to the top of resort where there are also connections to Meribel and skiing towards Courchevel Moriond. The Verdons lift is split into two halves, the first provides access to gentle greens and blues and the second more challenging reds and blacks. The remaining two options from the snow front are the Jardin Alpin Bubble Lift and the Bellecote Drag lift which both lead to beginner areas. If queues are particularly busy first thing in the morning, it is worth taking a short ski from the snow front to the Plantrey Chair Lift from where you can ski down to La Tania or take connections to Meribel.
