What we love

Being ′central′ doesn′t get much better than this. A great apartment offering the easiest of locations, with great food and service to match. A great choice with excellent prices to match.

Chalet La Vieille Forge

Sleeps 8

The Property

For those who like to be in the centre of things, the perfectly delightful La Vieille Forge has everything you could wish for in a ski chalet. Located close to the centre of Courchevel 1850, this apartment is on an upper floor of a beautifully designed timber-faced building – combines warmth, elegance and character.

Walls are largely wood-panelled throughout, with stone-tiled flooring – and the furniture in all the rooms is both stunningly stylish, comfortable and practical. This, combined with the location, gives you the best of both worlds.

If you want to go out, the ultra-chic centre of Courchevel is literally only steps away from your front door – and the evening attractions at this world-class resort include nightclubs with live music, piano bars and discos, as well as ice hockey matches and ski-jumping. But you will also face the draw of a cosy night in with a drink in front of a roaring fire – even more luxurious if you’re watching the snow bucketing down outside – and some mellow music via the high-quality Bose iPod dock. The fabulous position means you can also make the most of the village immediately after skiing, with not only lively bars but bustling markets too, selling local produce including cheese, wine and honey.

The chalet sleeps up to eight and all four bedrooms have private facilities, with slippers, bathrobes and a selection of Aromatherapy Associates products waiting for you. The living room is large with plenty of comfortable seating, a television and a balcony running round two sides. The spacious dining room, with a huge oak table, is open-plan with the kitchen and has an open fire – and a large balcony too.

There is a lift from street level, and the ski room, beside the apartment’s front door, has heated boot racks. No wonder La Vieille Forge is so popular!

Wonderful friendly staff made us feel very at home - absolutely 5*
