Cheval Blanc Courchevel offers an exclusive residential experience, with gracious hospitality and meticulous attention to detail. In a boldly contemporary spirit, the resort has reimagined the holiday at high altitude and is an ideal place to escape and rejuvenate.
The multi-faceted resort transcends simple categories. The Spa Cheval Blanc is there to pamper you with exclusive treatments from Guerlain, and dining at Cheval Blanc Courchevel has been refined to an art in many forms. Le 1947 at Cheval Blanc, guided by Chef Yannick Alléno, is certainly one of the most coveted restaurants in Courchevel.
Le Triptyque, a contemporary brasserie, serves refined dishes with Savoyard attitude from morning to night. La Terrasse, Le Bar and its smoking room in the spacious Yurt are ideal for moments of relaxation in a warm and convivial atmosphere, while the children are free to enjoy The Carrousel and The Paddock, places dedicated to having fun, designed just for them.
The renowned resort has pursued its creative quest since the very beginning. The mission is creating a world apart, a world unto itself, a welcoming refuge in harmony with its environment, a refuge that is both contemporary and timeless, classic and playful, serene and intense. Here at the summit of the Alps, exclusivity and perfection come together — in all the arts, all the disciplines, all areas of savoir-faire.
Cheval Blanc Courchevel has two ambitions: to reinvent the idea of the holiday escape and to leave its guests enchanted. Accordingly, the resort created two new types of professional post: Alchemists and Ambassadors. Trained exclusively within Cheval Blanc’s properties, these dedicated teams watch over the guests with complete discretion. Alchemists and Ambassadors transform the present moment into new experiences to surprise and delight its guests, ensuring beautiful memories.
You must cross the village, pass by the chapel, the chalets, the elegant boutiques, and continue to ascend to the white summits of the Alpine Garden before you get your first glimpse of Bruno Peinado’s magnificent “Horse of Mirrors.”
Emblem of the resort, this reflective giant, framed by pine trees, watches over the wooden abode. Conceived as a contemporary family retreat, Cheval Blanc Courchevel echoes the traditional wooden chalet that is typical of the Savoy region.
The luminous ochre-coloured facade is punctuated by wooden balconies, with cut-outs in the wood planks under the railings recalling the traditional forms found in these alpine pastures. These repetitive and symmetrical patterns let in light and open up the expansive view of the mountains that is a given in each room.
Like all Savoyard chalets, the rough slate rooftops, broad and irregular, have two planes. These angles work in concert with the rhythm of the facade and its balconies to create a pleasing harmony. The firewood stacked on either side of the entrance sets the tone and invites the guest to immerse themselves in the world of the chalet upon arrival. The wide dark wood walls give way to a revolving door, which preserves the interior warmth of this mountain retreat while leaving the cold and snow behind.
The 36 rooms and suites are spacious, between 40 square meters and 315 square meters, equipped with lounges with contemporary decoration, bathrooms with bathtub and separate shower-hammams with chromotherapy, tailor-made dressing rooms, and hospitality products scented with Mountain Chic, the olfactory signature of Cheval Blanc Courchevel. All are open to the mountain with private balconies or terraces offering an inspiring winter panorama.
The pool and wellness areas of the resort can be found on the ground floor. With the Cheval Blanc Courchevel swimming pool, the resort takes a multi-sensory approach to satisfy all guests. The large pool, serene and sheltered from outside view, looks out on the slopes, allowing swimmers to relax while observing the balletic passage of the skiers.
The atmosphere of the thermal baths of Cheval Blanc Courchevel is superb and unique thanks to the fusion of ancient inspirations and contemporary art. Winter’s chill is warmed away by the gentle whirlpools of the jacuzzi, steam from the hammam, the heat of the dry sauna, hot water in the hot-tub and in the banya in the open air.
The experience is sublime, with a view of the snowy pines, whether soothing the interior with silver crystals and icy fountains, or the exterior, thanks to the chromotherapy hammam. Since its creation in 2006, Cheval Blanc Courchevel opens its doors from December until the arrival of spring.
