More than just a legendary ski station, Courchevel is the perfect embodiment of a luxurious vacation. This international symbol of an upscale winter resort which caters to the rich and famous, continues to grow. As proof of its intact reputation, new five star hotels are regularly being opened. But what is actually behind this village which has become a winter Saint Tropez and a popular jet set destination? The station was officially opened in May, 1946 and was originally conceived as a resort for visitors of all social and economic levels and thus destined to increase tourism in the Savoie region by offering everyone a mountain vacation. This concept continued into the 1990s when the mindset began to change with the opening of more luxurious hotels, especially in the village of Courchevel 1850, which became a popular resort for Russian oligarchs. And although the three other villages which make up the station remain family oriented to a great extent, the image of Courchevel as a luxurious winter resort is now embedded in the minds of most people.
Courchevel’s 119 slopes measuring approximately 493 kilometers makes it one of the largest skiable areas in the world. Its 174 ski lifts accommodate 32,000 tourists in high season, assisted by 800 ski monitors.
Situated at the top of the famous Alpine Garden, directly facing the Three Valleys, one of the world’s largest skiable areas, the Apogée Courchevel is blessed with an exceptional location. This warm, luxurious and intimate five star establishment synonymous with elegance, has very quickly earned its place among Courchevel’s other palace hotels. Created and designed by the renowned architects, India Mahdavi and Joseph Dirand, the Apogée is a veritable cocoon, both hospitable and comfortable, without neglecting the slightest detail. The hotel welcomes its visitors with a flurry of vivid colors and a fireplace to provide warmth to skiers and other lovers of the snow and the mountains who immediately feel the comfort of this luxurious inn like hotel. As a member of the prestigious Oetker collection, it assures guests of the highest level of service and luxury that characterize all the hotels in the group. Each of the 53 rooms and suites ranging in size from 50 to 110 square meters is a haven of peace with an uninterrupted view of the Alps. The Apogée however, also has a unique 4 bedroom Penthouse with a terrace and its own jacuzzi, hammam and sauna. For guests in search of luxury, privacy and exclusivity, there is also a private chalet, the Amarante, whose 525 square meter surface was built with noble materials and decorated with warm colored fabrics. Services include a personal spa and a private staff consisting of a butler and a chef for elegant and unforgettable soirees. The Comptoir de l’Apogée is a chic brasserie type restaurant which serves local, generous cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. The Champagne Lounge as well as the hotel’s bar are the « in places to be » in Courchevel. The contemporary, chic and intimate Apogée is the epitome of modern luxury combining serenity, comfort and finesse.
The Apogée’s Kid’s Club is not only an achievement in design, it is also and especially a place for learning and playing with a traditional yourte where films are shown as well as indoor and outdoor activities for discovering the particularities of the region. The only drawback is trying to tear children away fro the Apogée when it’s time to go home!

For advanced skiers or for the beginners, Courchevel remains the ideal resort for snow fun. As for hotels, the offer is bloated and particularly varied.
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.
