Comfortable Hotel Facilities
The communal areas here are spacious and welcoming, and parents might wish to make the most of the sauna and relaxation area. The dining room and outside sun-terrace overlook the pistes and provide an ideal viewing spot for watching the early skiers or those on the last run home.
The suites and bedrooms are simply furnished, yet light and airy, with the variety sizes suiting most family combinations.
It's hard to beat this location, being above the main resort centre yet situated right on the slopes of Courchevel 1850. The resort centre is an easy ski away and for après ski we offer our free complimentary minibus shuttle from 9pm-midnight every evening and, on our staff night off, from 7pm-midnight.
Ski Area Access
What more can be said? You walk out of the hotel boot room directly onto the slopes of the Pralong and after one short button lift, can ski down the Bellecôte piste immediately to the heart of 1850. Here, at La Croisette, the ski schools meet adult guests joining ski or board lessons whilst others may head west to the Méribel valley, or continue down tree-lined runs to Le Praz. Aternatively you can ski across to the Altiport button and across to the Biollay chairlift. At the end of the ski day you can return directly to the ski room door.
For quicker access to the top of Courchevel the Pralong chairlift from practically outside the hotel takes you across to the Verdons blue run to the Vizelle gondola or the Saulire cable car.
Adventure Soft Play Zone
Our Adventure Play Structure is a unique feature here, designed to be enjoyed by children aged 4-12 with its multi-level play zones, which include games, structures to climb upon and a slide. For younger children, an enclosed, separate play area contains a smaller slide, see-saw rocker and other soft play materials in a safe environment
