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

The hotel now offers bedrooms and lofts, designed to provide the perfect accommodation for couples, families or even groups of friends. The refurbished rooms are decorated in earthy mountain tones throughout, and some are interconnecting - ideal for families. The hotel rooms are sold on a half board basis, so guests have breakfasts and suppers included. On the top two floors of Portetta, and with stunning views over Courchevel 1650, the stylish new lofts offer an extra element of luxury and added privacy, but with full access to all the hotel's facilities on a B&B basis.

Portetta Restaurant serves a combination of classic and contemporary French cuisine using the freshest locally grown ingredients. The restaurant menus change seasonally and daily, and are complimented by a carefully selected wine list. Whether you are staying at the hotel or in one of the lofts, the restaurant and bar are at your disposal. The Brasserie restaurant is a more informal affair with extremely comfortable chairs, designed for skiers to ski straight to the door, before walking in in ski boots.

The hotel also boasts the largest sun terrace in Courchevel, the perfect pit stop for that much-needed mid morning hot chocolate or a leisurely suntrap lunch. Most importantly for parents, the terrace is right on the slopes so you can ski directly onto it, order a vin chaud and watch the kids in the Mickey Mouse ski area right in front of the terrace. For après-ski, the recently opened Fire & Ice Bar features an open fire, a cocktail menu and live music, and is just a stone's throw from the Ariondaz lift. Alternatively, relax and rejuvenate at the Courchevel spa, or make use of our hamman, sauna or candle-lit relaxation lounge.

Why we love it

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.

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.
