Three perfect days at L’Apogée Courchevel

When it comes to a luxury Alpine retreat, there’s nowhere quite like L’Apogée Courchevel. Whether you’re in search of piste perfection, or ready to lose yourself in our subterranean spa, L’Apogée is the epitome of winter beauty. Situated high above an historic Olympic ski jump, our spectacular views are enough to take your breath away. For an intimate family break, enjoy the exquisite luxury of our chalets, where you’ll enjoy all the delights of our five-star hotel with an extra level of privacy. Ahead of ski season, we caught up with L’Apogée Courchevel General Manager, Duarte Bon de Sousa to find out his top tips for the perfect Alpine getaway.


Day 1

L’Apogée Courchevel is home to 600km of slopes; there’s no end to the adventures, no matter how many times you visit us. From quiet chutes to exhilarating black runs, there’s something for everyone. Even non-skiers can enjoy the beauty of the slopes with a snowshoe expedition.


“Most people associate Courchevel with downhill skiing, but snowshoeing is one of the best loved winter activities in the region,” says Duarte. “It’s a great way to explore the beautiful snowscapes with family or friends. The best part? After a snowshoe excursion, you can still join the après ski crowd over crepes and waffles at Le Bar de L’Apogée, prepared with excellence by our talented pastry chefs!”


Day 2

Relax and recuperate after a long day out on the slopes with a leisurely dinner at Koori. The delicate sushi and other Japanese delicacies by elite sushi masters and chefs are enjoyed in an opulent dining room with stunning views over the Alps.


Duarte adds, “In the Three Valleys, the beauty envelops you and the views from Koori’s windows are some of my favourites. After an exciting day of skiing, the refined menu takes you on a voyage right to the heart of Japan.”


Day 3

Spa L’Apogée by La Prairie is a rejuvenating treat for mind, body and soul. Whether your limbs are aching after a strenuous few days on the slopes or you want to return home feeling completely revitalised, every treatment is designed to refresh and recharge. Expert massages break down lactic acid to eliminate any soreness post-skiing while the famous La Prairie facials leave you complexion positively glowing.


“Don’t miss the chance to be pampered by our expert therapists in the warm cocoon of Spa L’Apogée by La Prairie. We offer soothing and revitalising treatments for the entire family. Then, everyone can enjoy a dip in our beautiful indoor swimming pool,” Duarte recommends.


The winter holidays are fast approaching and L’Apogée Courchevel reopens December 18th.
