Weekend of Luxury in Courchevel

March 14, 2016 -

Rent a luxury SUV to travel to Courchevel this ski season. Read on to discover the best way to spend 48 hours in the exclusive ski resort.

For many years, winter travel has led to Courchevel. The revered peaks of the snow-capped mountains attract sports enthusiasts from all over the world. The exclusive resort offers luxury in abundance, with Michelin-starred restaurants, five-star hotels and lavish spas to cater for the most discerning of tastes. Complementing high-living with some of the finest skiing in the Alps makes for a truly memorable mountain escape. If you’re strapped for time, read on to discover how best to spend 48 hours in the snow-covered dream that is Courchevel.


Friday 6:00pm – Begin your weekend with a scenic drive to the illustrious peaks of Courchevel 1850. A prestige car rental affords an aptly exuberant entrance; we suggest a Porsche Cayenne Turbo or a Mercedes GLE 63 AMG to combine style, functionality and comfort.

Late Friday – Check into the inimitable Hotel De Charme Les Airelles for a soundless nights sleep; a prerequisite for an action-packed weekend in Courchevel. Be charmed by the traditional décor, the traditional character and the scenic setting of this prestigious hotel.

Saturday 10:00am – After a hearty breakfast, pack up your SUV rental and head for the powdery slopes of Courchevel. Situated on the fringe of one of the world’s largest skiing network, Les Trois Vallées, which comprises over 600km of pistes, the resort offers some of the best skiing in the Alps.


Saturday Lunch Time – Spend lunch feasting at Le Farcon, a Michelin-starred restaurant in the small resort of La Tania. A traditionally decorated establishment, serving fine foot and offering an extensive wine list, Le Farcon is a popular choice for a short break from the slopes, although the sumptuous cuisine will make you reluctant to leave.

Saturday 6:00pm – After an afternoon exploring the vast network of challenging slopes and building up an appetite, it’s time to take refuge in the spectacular restaurant of the Chabichou resort. It offers two Michelin stars and an alluring ambience.


Saturday 9:00pm – The elegant Fire and Ice bar at the Portetta Hotel exudes class and sophistication, guaranteeing a memorable après ski experience. Sip on champagne and socialize until your comfortable bed calls your name.

Sunday 10:00am – After a debauched night on the town, trade the slopes for the spa and visit La Suites de la Potiniere Spa in Courchevel 1850 to indulge and unwind. The five-star spa resort offers massages, a heated swimming pool, personal training, yoga, osteopathy, a gym and powerplate technology, among other relaxing facilities.


Sunday Lunch – Enjoy lunch in the convivial atmosphere of the spa resort’s restaurant, before heading to the pistes for a final afternoon of skiing.

Sunday 18:00pm – Depart Courchevel in your luxury SUV rental and start planning your next Alpine adventure.
