About Courchevel 1300

Probably the prettiest of the Courchevels, 1300, known now as ‘La Praz’ is a traditional rustic village with a charming square and narrow, cobbled streets.

Luxury ski chalets in Courchevel 1300 are a good bet for families and groups of mixed-ability skiers. Beginners will enjoy the sheltered lower slopes as well as the blue and green slopes at Courchevel 1850, accessible in 10 minutes by lift. Meanwhile, those more confident can enjoy the more challenging red runs back into La Praz itself, down slopes lined with pine trees – like starring in the opening scenes of your own James Bond movie.

There’s plenty to keep everyone busy for a week or two but even if you should exhaust the entire Courchevel vallley during your stay, the rest of the 3 Valleys is on your doorstep with the Meribel valley an easy journey of two ski lifts away.

The quaint town is dominated by the Olympic ski jump, but in a good way, and watching the ski jumpers from the warmth of a bar or your luxury chalet is a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon

Getting there:

Grenoble and Champery airports are less than 2 hours’ drive away. Geneva airport is 2.5 hours’ drive away. There is also an altiport at Courchevel 1850.
