Hôtel des 3 Vallées – Courchevel, France
Originally built in the 1950’s for the resort workers of the nascent resort of Courchevel, the Hotel des 3 Vallées (or 3VL) has been given a luxuriously modern makeover that reflects its history and even uses much of its original furniture. Traditionally Alpine on the outside, this hotel is one for design lovers and those seeking the unusual. You can ski right to the door and its location in the centre of Courchevel 1850, just above La Croisette and close to the restaurants and bars is an added bonus.
We love the atmosphere of this hotel and the friendliness of all the staff, especially those in the ski shop. And our favourite touch is the hotel’s very own épicerie.
