Courchevel 1550 is the quieter little sister of the higher, neighbouring villages that share its name. The tranquil village is outstandingly well linked from its position at the core of The Three Valleys, by a gondola and fast chairlift, to Courchevel 1850 with blue home runs taking you back into the village. The Three Valley’s is the world’s largest ski area with 600km of well-maintained pistes which cater for all levels. There are more than a few welcoming bars and restaurants within easy walking distance of the village centre.
