Harriet, Kate L and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

Aman Le Mélézin boasts spectacular views over snow-dusted pine trees and pristine pistes, which can be enjoyed from within the welcoming, dark-wood panelled walls of the resort after a busy day on the slopes. The suites and chambres are decorated in neutral tones, reflective of the snowy setting, but with cedar-panelled ceilings and walls to create a cosy atmosphere. Each bedroom has large picture windows, perfectly framing the winter wonderland outside, and most suites feature balconies and separate living rooms.

The resort's restaurant specialises is French cuisine, using organic local produce, such as the region's renowned Beautfort cheese and locally reared meat. The candlelit tables create a snug setting in which to enjoy a hearty meal, coupled with one of the regional Savoyard wines on offer, or perhaps the locally distilled génépi - an herb-infused liqueur. The granite stone bar is the ideal place for after dinner drinks, serving everything from warming coffee to Aman Le Mélézin's signature cocktail, which blends local blueberries, violet extract and a splash of champagne.

Take advantage of Aman Le Mélézin's perfect position and spend days skiing down the powdery pistes in Les Trois Vallées. There are a range of other wintery activities on offer, such as snowshoeing, snowmobiling and tobogganing.

Escape the great outdoors for an afternoon of relaxation in the resort's spa, and try some post-piste restorative treatments, such as dry skin brushing to boost the circulation and oil massages to rehydrate the skin. Slip into the hamman heated pool and Jacuzzi, set under a vaulted ceiling and surrounded by capri-stone walls, for a soothing soak après-ski.

Le Strato

It’s debatable whether Courchevel needed yet another top end hotel, but the spanking new Le Strato might just be the best of the bunch.



The ‘ski in/ski out’ Portetta is located at the foot of the slopes of Courchevel 1650, and is perfect for families.

Le K2

Le K2

Having opened in December 2011 in Courchevel 1850, Le K2 is the younger sister to the 5* Le Kilimandjaro hotel, and has upped the glitz factor in the village even higher.



Located in Val Thorens - Europe's highest ski resort – the ultra-contemporary Altapura is the resort’s first truly stylish hotel, and one that could well put the resort on a par with neighbouring Meribel and Courchevel.
