One of the very best ski hotels in the world in one of the world's very best ski areas...Le Melezin is set directly on the fashionable ski slopes of Courchevel 1850.
Its classic ambience and steam room, gym and pool, offer the ultimate in apres-ski. The winter season runs mid-December to mid-April. Le Melezin is located in the Trois Vallees, known informally as the ski capital of the world with more than 600km of trails and 200 lifts. The four-storey, slate-roof ski resort opens its glass doors directly onto the Bellecote ski slope permitting guests to literally ski in and out of the resort. Just 200 metres away is the village of Courchevel 1850, with its lively mix of apres-ski bars, boutiques and restaurants. A shuttle-bus service from Le Melezin to the town centre is available till 11pm. There are four Courchevel villages, each named after its altitude in metres and Courchevel 1850 is the highest. Le Melezin can arrange for a personal ski instructor for all categories, including children and beginners, and ski passes are available on arrival. Mountain guides can be arranged as well. The views from Le Melezin are to forests of pine and the ski slopes. Head above the village, however, and the vistas open all the way from the French to the Swiss Alps and even Mont Blanc is visible.
