The destination

Luxury Ski Chalets in Le Praz

Situated at the foot of Dent du Villard and Grand Bec, two iconic peaks in the Massif de la Vanoise mountain range in France’s Savoie region, Le Praz is an ideal ski break destination, one popular with couples, families and groups looking for snow-fuelled adventures, along with the opulent and lavish experiences luxury ski breaks are renowned for providing holidaymakers with a taste for the finer things in life.

A village, not a town, and therefore offering a cosier, less rambunctious ski holiday experience, the kind of holiday experience that more mature holidaymakers may be interested in, Le Praz is one of those European ski resorts that has a little something to offer everyone, from couples desiring a romantic ski break destination set among the picturesque peaks that overlook the town, to families looking for a good selection of pistes to suit skiers of all experience levels, and groups of friends making the most of the opportunity to get together and hit the slopes that Le Praz offers in abundance.

Known by several names, including Courchevel 1300 and Courchevel Le Praz, this delightful luxury ski resort is part of the world renowned Courchevel ski resort, which is not one resort but four. Along with Le Praz, these resorts include Courchevel (formerly 1850), Courchevel Moriond (formerly 1650), and Courchevel Village (formerly 1550).

This world-class skiing destination offers more than 600 kilometres of pistes that are serviced by over 170 lifts, so wherever you stay in Le Praz you’re never far from the action. Le Praz is located at the bottom of the ski area at 1,300 metres and therefore gazes up at the iconic mountains which look down upon it, making for some of the region’s most fantastic high-altitude scenery at all times of day, particularly at sunset.
