More than just another ski resort, Courchevel is legendary. Over the years, it has become the incarnation of the perfect blend of snow and luxury. Courchevel is the international symbol of a top of the scale resort. As a destination for the rich and famous, Courchevel’s success continues to increase with, as proof, the regular addition of new five star hotels. But how exactly did this Saint-Tropez type village so popular with the jet set come about? The resort was officially born in May, 1946 as a socially conscious vacation spot open to all layers of the population with the goal of encouraging tourism in the Savoie region by making the mountains available to everyone. This idea continued on until the late 1990s when the construction of more luxurious hotels, notably the Courchevel 1850 village became a popular vacation spot for Russian oligarchs. Although the three other villages that make up the resort remain family oriented, the image of Courchevel as a luxury site is now anchored in people’s minds. Courchevel’s 119 ski slopes covering 493 kilometers make it the world’s largest skiable area. In addition, it has 174 ski lifts for its 32,000 tourists in high season as well as 800 monitors.
Spending a vacation in the mountains is by no means synonymous with a lack of city comforts and luxury! For those seeking a city environment while enjoying the wonders of the mountains, Les Suite de la Potinière is a haven of urban life surrounded by snow and ski slopes. With its 55 to 90 square meter suites, this five star hotel with its rustic appearance is contemporary, prestigious, chic and refined, enabling visitors to enjoy all the alpine advantages with the feeling of being in a loft on New York’s Fifth Avenue! Thanks to its contemporary furniture and its choice of modern colors, Les Suite de la Potinière offers guests a cozy and elegant setting, available in two categories: Elegant and Paradise, with the possibility of creating adjoining suites or rooms ranging from 110 to 145 square meters in size. The most exclusive accommodations however, are found in the Apartment, a unique 450 square meter duplex with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a jacuzzi and a 100 square meter living room. With its magnificent view of the Three Valleys and its sober urban style, the decorators have integrated the charm of a Savoyard chalet, making the apartment truly exceptional. Dark wood furniture and minimalist straight lines all converge to create a space that is both functional and convivial. To top off the sense of excellence, the hotel proposes its own spa by Omnisens and La Suite, a French restaurant, as well as a chic, elegant lounge bar.
Les Suite de la Potinièrehas quickly become a popular meeting place and an integral part of Courchevel’s night life. Its very central location and relaxed atmosphere make it an indispensable, sophisticated and very chic place to be.
