Courchevel 1650 is the more family-focused and more affordable of Courchevel’s four base villages.
The resort is of course one of the best known resorts on the planet, famed both for its incredible ski area, making up one of the 3 Valleys, the planet’s biggest ski area with 600km of runs, and additionally famed for its great snow record, exciting terrain and fantastic high-speed lift network.
Courchevel 1650’s stands a little apart from the other Courchevel bases, and has a more relaxed atmosphere. It’s central street is part of the road up from 1550 to 1850 and has allowed the village to develop its own character and personality, whilst still providing fast access to the Courchevel valley and the attractions of the resort’s neighbouring villages.
The resort is expanding fairly rapidly and there’s an ever-growing selection of comfortable chalets and apartments appearing, bringing with them an ever-expanding range of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops on top of the large number you can easily reach in 1850. The incredible €70 million Aquamotion watersports complex (for which you get a free admission with a ski pass valid for two days or more) is close by.
