Courchevel 1550 offers the best of both worlds, it's a charming resort at the foot of the pistes with a stunning view both up to the slopes and out across the valley. The Courchevel Village (1550) is a quiet little village offering cheaper accommodation and restaurants when compared to the rest of the Courchevel area, making it an ideal ski resort for family ski holidays.
The resort has a couple of lively bars and restaurants from a pizzeria to gourmet cuisine. The gondola which takes you up to Courchevel 1850 operates into the evening, normally about 8 pm, so you can go up and down as you please. It’s worth mentioning the floodlit toboggan run through the trees from 1850 to 1550 is fun for all ages! Prices are also a little less high altitude!
