Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Courchevel

Col de la Loze
Connecting Courchevel and Meribel, Col de la Loze is the perfect place for first-time off-pisters to practise.
Supreme Ski & Snowboard
Supreme Ski & Snowboard School is a British-run school that offers both group and private instruction; with no language barriers, it comes highly recommended.
Il Vino
The only restaurant in Courchevel where you pick the wine and the chef picks the food. A simple concept that has foodies (and winos) flocking in their droves.
Le Chalet de Pierres
As something of a local favourite, Le Chalet de Pierres is one of the oldest mountain restaurants in Courchevel; a recent renovation ensures its popularity continues.
Le Grande Roche
Close to the centre of Courchevel 1850 but near enough to the mountains to afford spectacular views over the Bellecote glacier and Dent du Villard, Le Grande Roche caters to even the most seasoned ski bunny.
Craig’s Paragliding

La Cendrée
La Cendrée sets the scene for intimate, wine-soaked dinners that run well into the small hours; particularly good are its peach juice bellinis.
Le Mélézin
As part of the Aman Resort hotel group, Le Mélézin is a fabulous five-star stay with a cosy, country house vibe.
Le Farçon
Just because it has a piste-side location, it doesn't mean that Le Farçon serves up slap-dash meals; in fact, it's anything but with Michelin-starred Julien Machet at the helm.
La Chabotté Bistro
Hotel restaurants sometimes disappoint, but that's certainly not the case at Hotel Chabichou; its restaurant is manned by a Michelin-starred chef who certainly knows what he's doing, while its vibe is like homely and intimate.

La Grange
Being the second oldest nightclub in Courchevel doesn't mean La Grange is outdated; in fact, a line of bright young things queuing up outside it on any given night proves otherwise.
Chanel opens Winter pop-up store in Courchevel
