Courchevel is the ultimate skier’s playground – think upscale piste-side restaurants and the most glamorous nightlife in the French Alps. A stay in the heart of Les Trois Vallées is like no other, and these are the best places to spend it.

Part hotel, part luxury chalet, Le Chalet des Peupliers offers all the facilities of a five-star hotel, from its gourmet restaurant to its tranquil spa complete with hammam, sauna and hot tub. All rooms are ski-to-door, and you have the option of a balcony, too, with dreamy vistas overlooking the lakes and mountains. It’s not just for winter, either – come summer, there are plenty of green spaces for hiking, canyoning, via ferrata, mountain biking and more.

While Courchevel is made up of four separate settlements, Courchevel 1850 is the place to see and be seen. Bang in the centre, Hotel de la Loze is a winter wonderland of alpine-inspired rooms and superb service; expect low-key luxury here, with a hammam and sauna on site, and a lounge that’s complete with a crackling log fire for you to thaw out after a long day on the slopes. Don’t worry if you’ve come unprepared – there’s an in-house ski shop with all the essentials, too.
