Courchevel 1550

Peace and quiet alongside access to the world’s greatest ski area.

Situated directly below its sophisticated neighbour Courchevel 1850, the quiet village of Courchevel 1550 is perfect for a fun-filled family holiday in Les 3 Vallées. Previously a bit of a backwater, the resort has seen much regeneration and improvement in recent years with an influx of new luxury chalets being built to accommodate the increasing demand.

Being a quiet, peaceful area, away from the noisy bars and nightclubs, Courchevel 1550 is particularly popular with families. A mix of traditional chalet style buildings, large modern hotels and self-catering apartments are spread out along the village’s main roads. There are several excellent restaurants and a few bars, but to be at the centre of the nighttime action you will need to head further up the mountain to Courchevel 1850. Once a week a food and clothing market arrives in the village where you can pick up lots of tasty delicacies, from cheese to cured meats and preserves.  

Accessible skiing for all abilities in Les 3 Vallées.

Linked to 1850 by two lifts, the main ski areas and the vast expanse of Les 3 Vallées are easily accessed from the village. The combination of Courchevel’s high altitude, mainly north facing slopes and abundant snowmaking delivers some of the most reliable skiing conditions in the Alps. With 600km of slopes to explore, there is more than enough terrain to satisfy skiers of all abilities. Courchevel 1550 has a small nursery area and plenty of fantastic long runs to progress to and there is plenty of challenging off-piste skiing to interest experts.

Off the slopes, Courchevel has plenty to keep visitors amused from a thrilling toboggan descent from 1850 down to 1550, to the recently built aquatic and spa complex, Aquamotion. With indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fitness centre, climbing wall, indoor surf wave and a luxurious spa offering treatments galore, there is something here for everyone to enjoy.
