Courchevel, Avoriaz, Megeve

Do you dream of winter sports, wooden chalets, fondues by the fire, kilometers of powder snow ...

Courchevel: excellence for 60 years

There is no shortage of exceptional hotels and very comfortable mountain chalets in Courchevel. Annapurna, Cheval Blanc, Les Airelles are among the most luxurious and charming hotels in the French Alps. The service there is obviously impeccable, a major asset after a full day of hitting the slopes!




Fondue, raclette, tartiflette, berthoud, the departments of Savoie and Haute-Savoie are famous for their traditional cheese-based recipes. In Courchevel, you will taste the best local recipes in the starred restaurants Le Bateau Ivre and Le Chabichou. These upscale restaurants also offer truffles, scallops, lobsters, in short! enough to spend delicious winter evenings!

As for the slopes, you will not be left out: 150 kilometers of slopes for all levels, served by 62 ski lifts. The resort is part of the largest ski area in the world: Les Trois Vallées. Grandiose panoramas guaranteed, two slopes of Mont Blanc!

Avoriaz: "the beauty of wood"

The particularity of Avoriaz in winter is that it is a fully skiable town: the roads are transformed into slopes and to get back to the chalet, all you have to do is slide down! In the absence of vehicles, the resort turns into a gigantic playground: snowmen, toboggan races and boules battles make children and their parents happy!



The resort of Avoriaz, all in wood, blends in perfectly with the environment, especially in winter when the snow covers the roofs, and it is one of those resorts rented out for their ecological effort. The hotels and chalets in Avoriaz are cozy and comfortable, in particular the Macchi Hotels-Chalets de Tradition (4 stars) and the Hotel Neige et Roc (3 stars), two establishments which for their decoration are directly inspired by the mountain.


Significant advantage: the altitude guarantees permanent snow cover at all times of the season.

Megève: Mont Blanc, fir trees and wide open spaces

In Megève, we recommend luxury chalets, at the foot of the slopes, charming little cozy nests to spend the winter evenings warm.

In Megève, snowboarders are spoiled: the resort has a sounded snow park, with half pipe, tables, pyramids, quarter and mini mogul stadium.


But don't think that skiing and snowboarding are the only activities in Megève. There is also golf on snow, polo on snow, ice skating, while snowshoes and sled dogs will make you discover another face of the French Alps, wilder, whiter than white!
