Eat, sleep, drink

Eat

Budget: Les Chenus offers a buffet at the top of the Chenus bubble car, with plain and hearty grub ideal for refuelling.

Mains from £7. It’s packed from 12.30pm onwards so get in early. courchnet.com

Midrange: Fire and Ice offers spectacular outdoor eating at the foot of the slopes, where simplicity is done with style with burgers, pastas, pizzas and ice shots. Mains from £17.  leportetta.com

Luxury: Simply put, Le Chabichou is Courchevel’s finest. It boasts a menu to die for and has two Michelin stars to show for it.

A true experience to keep your energy levels up and your tastebuds in awe. Eight course menu starts at £90. 

Drink

Budget: Rocky’s Bar is a Brit-heavy sports-themed bar fond of boozy, fancy-dress themed nights.

It’s ideal for tanking a few beers – from around £5 a pint – and getting amongst it.

You have been warned: we were there on Burns Night with loads of kilt-wearing, whisky-downing Scots.

Midrange: Courchevel’s The Funky Fox is a top venue for good times (live music, DJs, pool tables, etc) and passable prices (beers from £6).

The ever-popular bar is open 'til 4am and really only gets going once the crowd descends from elsewhere. 

 

Luxury: If you’re after a sophisticated touch then check out Purple Cafe, a stylish Parisian cocktail bar.

You’ll pay more for your drinks here, around £13, but the ambiance and glam setting makes it shekels well spent.  courchevel.com

Sleep

Budget: Le Peupliers is a three-minute walk away from the heart of Courchevel 1850, with ample rooms and friendly service.

And at £80 a night, tres reasonsable for one of Europe’s premier ski locales.

You can save your money for the après-ski.  

 

Midrange: For home comforts and a view to stun you every morning, head to Chalet Nid d’Aigle in 1650.

It’s comfy, spacious and has its own hammam room. Perfect for dining, resting and recouping and getting ready for that big night out.

Book as part of a package with Powder White. 

 

Luxury: If you have recently won big then team up with some mates and hire one of the Le Portetta‘s six lofts for the week.

Prices start at £2390 per loft per week, but they sleep up to six, and offer privacy, space and elegance to make it a stay to remember.

They’re self catered but the hotel offers use of a chef.
