Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Courchevel

Cheval Blanc Spa
Privilege Ski
Privilege Ski does fittings in the comfort of your own hotel or chalet; arguably the best rental company in Courchevel.
Buggy Kart Cross
Put your foot to the metal at Buggy Kart Cross, where you hop on a quad bike or karting buddy and tear around a 600-metre circuit.
ESF Courchevel
L'école de ski Français de Courchevel is the biggest ski school in the area, with more than 600 instructors on its books and a range of courses to suit any level.
Spa Valmont
Spa Valmont pour Les Airelles has it all, from waterfalls to its own snow cave; step inside at the four-star Les Airelles hotel.
Le Tremplin
There's something supremely decadent about enjoying oysters and Champagne on a sun-soaked terrace; do so in style at La Croisette.
Piano Bar at Hotel Les Airelles
As you'd expect of this kind of venue, the Piano Bar at Hotel Les Airelles offers lashings of style and a sophisticated crowd of Chanel ski-wielding cocktail sippers.
Bernard Charvin Sports
With a former French ski team racer behind it, you can bet your bottom Euro that the boots on offer at Bernard Charvin Sports are the best in the biz.
La Mangeoire
Le Mangeoire is one of the most popular apres-ski hangouts on the piste, and for good reason; with an extensive cocktail menu and live piano music, it's a winner.
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.
Restaurant Azimut
Found only five minutes from the piste, Restaurant Azimut is the perfect place for a languid lunch or decadent dinner. Indulge, we say.
Alan Hutchinson
With over 10 years on the mountain, Alan Hutchinson knows a thing or two about Courchevel; his teaching techniques are excellent.
Spa Lana by Clarins
You're a superspa, that is what you are; Spa Lana by Clarins uses the beauty brand's signature products in sleekly-designed space at the luxurious Hotel La Lana.
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.
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 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.
