GRANDES ALPES HOTEL
History & Story
Built in 1948, the Grandes Alpes was once a post-office, a town hall, then a four-star hotel. In 2012 the current owners invested millions in creating what is today the Grandes Alpes Hotel. The transformation created a unique concept in Courchevel and indeed in the French Alps with the marriage of a hotel and a chalet featuring 9 apartments creating 30 rooms and suites with full butler service. In an enviable ski-in ski-out and walk-in walk-out position the hotel is in the heart of the village of Courchevel 1850. Our unique apartments have up to 4 bedrooms, a fully equipped butler serviced kitchen, sitting room with fireplace and dining room. The hotel has a spa by Bellefontaine, a ski shop and lounge bar for food and drinks.
2012 complete rebuild and design by Jean-Marc Muchet, a renowned French interior designer. Every year from May – November the hotel is retouched with some modifications.
Main Strengths, Special Touch
Unique concept in the French Alps. Location in Courchevel 1850.
Very personalised service (including shoe size requirements, wine and champagne preferences etc.).
Right in the heart of Courchevel 1850, next to the church, the tourist office and all the luxury boutiques, the hotel is in an envious walk-in walk-out position.
The hotel is also ski-in ski-out on a green run so perfect for all levels of ski. Th rooms and suites offer sweeping views over the valley and the ski pistes.
Key sites/activities in the area
World’s largest ski area on the door step, the three valleys offers varied and diverse skiing.
There are a multitude of non-ski activities such as dog-sledding, tobogganing, hot-air ballooning, helicopter rides etc.
Firework festival through-out the ski season; personal shoppers, Michelin starred dining.
We have a family of penguins at the hotel that are around and about. These penguins, though not real, do add a little to the atmosphere of the Grandes Alpes and represent a family and warm destination.
Other fun facts include the fact that you can ski on Gold Skis – unique in Courchevel. Hand-made from 6000 year old oak-wood and fitted with 14 carat gold bindings altogether in a Louis Vuitton ski bag, these are fun!
For all children’s’ arrivals we give fantastic wooden coloring kits, penguin soft toys, and a fully personalized service.
