The height of luxury, right in the middle of the action – this luxury penthouse apartment in Courchevel 1850 occupies the entire fourth floor of the Grandes Alpes Hotel in which it is set. The hotel is primed in a ski-in/ski-out position just moments from the main lifts as well as the glamorous shops and bars of Courchevel, but up here on the fourth floor, looking out at the slopes, you could be in the middle of nowhere.
The Emerald Apartment has its own private lift and is sprawled across 300m2, giving everyone plenty of room to relax. In the living room, extra-long sofas, scattered with cushions, sit around an amazing contemporary fireplace in the middle of the room. It couldn’t feel more cosy in here, as you watch the snow fall on the mountains outside. The south-facing dining room is beautifully lit – a really atmospheric setting for some fabulous meals, whether you’ve ordered room service or are enjoying a meal cooked for you by your private chef.
It’s an ideal property for families, with its own playroom, as well as a swimming pool in the hotel’s spa, and all the help on hand you need from the staff at Grandes Alpes. Nothing is too much trouble here – whether you need a babysitter or a helicopter, ski passes or a limo, just ask. You’ll also be given a dedicated butler to attend to your every need during your stay.
After a morning’s hardcore skiing or shopping, you’ll be pleased to take advantage of the apartment’s steam room, off the main bedroom. And if you feel in need of more thorough pampering, the hotel’s exclusive spa is a real treat. This really is a property that offers the best of both worlds – luxury hotel service in your very own private retreat.
