Part of the expansive Three Valleys, it is unsurprising that Courchevel 1850 has a pretty good selection of ski accommodation, due of course to the popularity of the resort but also to the impressive ski terrain. The region was almost virtually uninhabited, with a few farmers far and inbetween and the only buildings of any significance being a saw mill and a town hall in Saint Bon, built in 1870. Fast forward a few years and Hotel Lac Bleu was built in 1902 for the summer season however by 1925 it was open for the winter seasons. With the terrain being a combination of danse patches of tree and high mountain plains, people had begun to recognise the potential of the region as a winter sports destination. The actual designers of Courchevel, Maurice Michaud and Laurent Chappis aimed to create a resort that remained as close as possible to nature; one of the decisions was that the resort would be free of concrete buildings.
The accommodation style at Courchevel very much resonates with the ideas of the original designers. All hotels, apartments and chalets are heavily influenced with the Savoyard style designs of regions of wood, stone and slate; and as such it is difficult not to be enamored by the charm of the resort. But enough of the history lessons for now, allow us to indulge you with our findings:

They give us that story book feeling whenever we arrive in them; imagine the relief and feeling of escapism after arriving at a rustic chalet for a week long ski holiday and away from the clamour of big cities.
