Apogee Courchevel

The birth of a myth

11.12.13. A symbolic date of birth for an already mythical hotel. One could not in fact choose a better sequence for the arrival of the Apogée, the latest hotel in the Oetker collection.Apogee-Staff-luxury-dream-hotels

Built on the site of the former Olympic ski jump in the heart of the Courchevel 1850 alpine garden, this new jewel of luxury proposes 55 accommodations including 20 double rooms, 33 suites, a penthouse and a private chalet. It’s the first hotel creation in Courchevel in 45 years! To confront its competitors and offer a truly different type of hotel, the Apogée was from short on expertise. Contributors included a veritable entrepreneur and primary stockholder (Xavier Niel), two international stars for the interior decorations (India Madhavi and Joseph Dirand), a chef awarded the prestigious Best French Worker award (Franck Ferigutti) and the Oetker dream team for the management. With so many talented fairy godmothers and godfathers, the Apogée can begin its first season with confidence and already place itself in the very select company of mythical mountain palaces. True to its name, the Apogée represents “the highest degree that can be attained.”
