Courchevel 1650 straddles the main road up the valley on the way to the extravagant Courchevel 1850, however, if we forget its glitzy neighbour up the hill, 1650 is a chic alpine resort in its own right.
There are plentiful hotels, bars, restaurants, shops and 3 fully stocked supermarkets which makes a hotel, catered or self-catered holiday a doddle. 1650 also boasts a local cinema, a church, a street market and also the fact that it is home to a number of leading ski schools, ( the ski school meeting place is in the town centre). As such, 1650 is a very sensible choice if you are, or there are people in your group taking lessons.
In Courchevel 1650 go to Le Maracas tapas bar for a wide selection of wines, food and live music. The English Rocky’s Bar is packed to the rafters every night as is the disco By Night Tavern open until 4am every morning.
As for the skiing –the skiing just above 1650 is some of the best in the valley as it benefits from excellent north facing ski slopes which retain the sun late into the afternoon. They also offer less crowds and queues in the peak weeks. They said God made Courchevel for skiing -we agree. Espacially the runs sitting above 1650!
