Luxury Ski Chalets Courchevel Le Praz

Traditional mountain village with easy access to Courchevel 1850

Located on a plateau at the bottom of wooded slopes, Courchevel Le Praz is the epitome of an authentic mountain village. The lowest of the four villages that make up Courchevel, Le Praz is by far the most attractive with winding cobbled streets and traditional chalet-style buildings. Although the village doesn’t have the range of shops and eateries found in Courchevel 1850, there are still plenty of good cafés and restaurants to choose from.

The best news is that as of winter 19/20 Courchevel Le Praz has a brand new high-speed 10-seater gondola which whisks you up to Courchevel 1850 in six minutes flat. The lift also operates outside normal ski lift hours so the attractions higher up the mountain are within easy reach.

Luxury chalets are on the rise in Courchevel Le Praz

Aside from lifts up to Courchevel 1850, there is also a covered chairlift which takes skiers up to the top of the La Tania bubble, giving quick access to Méribel via the Col de la Loze. From here the whole of the Three Valleys ski area is just waiting to be explored. Skiers can also enjoy tree-lined runs back down to the village at the end of the day. One of the highlights of Courchevel Le Praz has to be the famous ski jumps which were built for the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics and international competitions continue to be held here.

Although it’s smaller than the other Courchevel villages, luxury chalets in Courchevel Le Praz are on the rise, and with the new cable car to Courchevel 1850, this is only set to continue. Despite its size, the village has some fantastic restaurants, including Azimut and Le Bistrot du Praz. There are several bars to keep you entertained after skiing, including Cave des Lys, an atmospheric wine bar with an extensive selection of wines.
