A byword for winter luxury, Courchevel ranks as one of the most desirable ski resorts in the world, attracting ultra-wealthy, A-lister celebrities and the royals alike.
Proving the ever-growing popularity of the resort, Knight Frank’s Ski Property Report 2021 highlights Courchevel commands one of the highest rates, internationally, for rentals and achieves the highest property price points of any ski resort in the French Alps. Viewings and sales increased in July and August of this year across the whole of Les Trois Vallées, suggesting the appeal of a second home in the area is growing, especially for those able to work remotely.
Slopes, Lifts, And Passes
Les Trois Vallées is the largest linked ski area in the world, offering over 600 kilometers of spectacular pistes and 200 ski lifts to enjoy, with Courchevel 1850 arguably the most prestigious address both on and off the slopes.
The vast ski area at Courchevel offers something for everyone, no matter the level of ski or snowboard skills, boasting 93 miles of perfectly linked slopes. Alternatively, for those feeling adventurous or lucky enough to have more time to explore, there is the option of Les Trois Vallées lift pass which enables access to over 350 miles of pristine piste in the likes of well-known resorts like Meribel and Val Thorens.
Aside from its fame for its vast snow offering, more recently Courchevel has earned top status as it boasts the highest number of Michelin starred restaurants within a ski resort. With its impeccable selection of incredible restaurants, bars, and designer boutiques, which include three Michelin-starred restaurants, including Le 1947 – headed by Chef Yannick Alleno – it’s easy to see why Courchevel attracts even the most prestigious of visitors. Understandably, it comes as no surprise that residences in the area are in high demand, with those looking to make the most of the season ahead.
