Courchevel 1850 is one of the most exclusive ski resorts in the world and Chalet Bulle de Neige takes you right to the heart of this exciting winter destination. You’ll have great access to slopes on your doorstep and an outstanding luxury chalet from which to explore Courchevel and Les Trois Vallées, the world’s largest linked skiing area.
Bulle de Neige means snow bubble, and you’ll be in a luxurious bubble in this freestanding chalet built in the classic Alpine style.
Location is vital for a good luxury chalet and Bulle de Neige has one of the best in town. It’s not ski in/ski out, but you’re just a short walk from a blue run down to one of the main chairlifts and from there to the whole of Les Trois Vallées. You’ll also be at the heart of Courchevel 1850, the largest of this family of chic resorts, and one of the most glamorous places on the planet.
Bulle de Neige can comfortably welcome up to eight guests. It’s ideal for six though. Two double bedrooms make up the sleeping accommodation on the ground floor; one is fully en-suite, the second has access to the steam and shower room. There is a twin room on the first floor and the master bedroom – really a luxury suite – perches at the top of the chalet, enjoying two private balcony, full en-suite facilities and an office.
You’ll probably spend most of your time around the open-plan living area. The log fire draws people to it, while through the dining room is access to a spectacular balcony with that ultimate luxury chalet accessory, the outdoor hot tub. Inside you’ll find a hamman, a North African-style steam room to complete your relaxation routine.
Bulle de Neige is a catered chalet, and you’ll be welcomed with champagne served by your chalet host. They’re there to make your stay perfect, if you need any advice during your stay, turn to your host. A chef will also be on hand during your stay, preparing canapés and four-course dinners each night with breakfast and afternoon tea too. Flights and transfers are included in the price of your booking and a driver will get you around the resort during your stay. Broadband and an iPad mean you won’t be out of touch.
Courchevel is a family of four resorts, each named for their altitude. Courchevel 1850 is the highest and biggest of the group. They’re built here because of the outstanding quality of the winter sports on offer – this is a world-class skiing paradise, welcoming to beginners but with plenty to test the experts.
The rich and famous have come flocking here for years and, naturally, the best restaurants, shops and nightclubs have clustered around them.
Among them are Le Chabichou, which owns a neighboring restaurant that is less expensive, Le 1947 is in the Hôtel Cheval Blanc on the Jardin Alpin. Azimut is bright, modern and simple, Baumanière 1850 is the newest Michelin star. There are many more restaurants – La Table des Airelles has a beautiful woodland setting – representing all cuisines and catering to most budgets – though somewhere like Courchevel is never going to be cheap.
Après ski is lively. There’s live music at the Folie Douce, a new bar, in the afternoons. The Verdons restaurant also puts on a show on the slopes. In 1850, the Tremplin and Kudetta are popular spots. The Fire and Ice bar at the Portetta hotel is a great place to enjoy a drink outside. Le Schuss, in 1550, has some of the best views of any of the local bars.
Any hotel bar in Courchevel will offer stylish drinking establishments and maybe the chance to spot some stars.
