Hotel Le Chabichou **** Courchevel 1850, France
What we love
A ski in/ski out 5-star in Courchevel 1850 offering value for money can be hard to find. It may not be as flashy as some of the other 5-star hotels in resort, yet with a superb location and with all the facilities you need, the Annapurna is a brilliant all round hotel.
Setting the scene
The Hotel Annapurna is a large 5* hotel enjoying a superb ski in, ski out location in Courchevel 1850. It is in an elevated position and south facing, found at the top of the village with magnificent mountain views. Located at an altitude of 1900m, Annapurna is the highest hotel in resort.
With 71 rooms in total, a mix of doubles, twins, suites and family configurations, there are options for everyone. All rooms benefit from lovely mountain, slope or valley views and great natural light due to their large panoramic windows.
Once a week there is live music in the restaurant. On warm sunny days lunch on the terrace is popular. There is also a cosy hotel bar complete with a fireplace; the perfect setting to enjoy a cocktail.
The facilities at the hotel make it the ideal destination for all. Keeping the children entertained is an important focus, with a children's playroom for the younger ones (under 7 years) and a brilliant games room for teenagers. Whilst the children are kept quiet the adults can relax in the spa, enjoy the indoor or outdoor pool or be treated to an appointment at the in-house hair salon.
