Our favourite rooms
Shell out the extra cash for a Piste View every time – these rooms are perfectly placed not only for mountain vistas, but spectacular sunrises, thanks to their perch in the sunniest patch of Courchevel. Book a loft if you fancy lots of open-plan space and your own roaring fire.
Portetta Spa has three treatment rooms, a blue-tiled steam room, hammam and sauna, as well as a chill-out area with wicker beds to unwind on pre- or post-pampering. The spa uses Bamford, Oskia, and OPI products; try a hydrating facial or the muscle-soothing post-sport massage (book treatments before you arrive in resort).
Don’t panic if you’ve left any gear behind: the hotel has its own ski shop.
The hotel has two rooms adapted for wheelchair users.
Cots and extra beds can be provided for children under 11; cots are free, but the price for extra beds varies. With 24 hours’ notice, a babysitter can be arranged (roughly €15 an hour).
