Your Key To Courchevel – 2019 Les Clefs d’Or Award Nominee – France

As I am dedicated to hospitality and love skiing, I came to Courchevel (@courchevel_officiel) in 2013 with two main goals: taking part to the opening of L’Apogée Courchevel (@lapogeecourchevel) and experience the best ski at Les Trois Vallées (@les3vallees_officiel). I never left the ski resort since that day! To my opinion, Courchevel is The winter paradise.

Each day starts with a real breakfast for champions! You will then need the whole day to enjoy all sorts of winter sports and seize the extend of the domain: the biggest skiing area in the world (more than 600 km of slopes). And if you are not in a ski mood, you will have plenty of activities to experiment: from a smooth flight on an air balloon, horse carriage to visit the surroundings, a sporty dog sledging tour, or an unforgettable snowmobile escape.

The favorite lunch break I like to organize for my guests is 5 stars picnic on the summits. It’s such a unique experience! Surrounded by the magnificent Alpine panorama, you will be served by our Michelin starred Chef Jean-Luc Lefrançois (@jeanluclefrançois) and our talented wine expert. As a personal piece of advice: the higher altitude you get, the better the Champagne is!

After ski at Le Tremplin (@Letremplincourchevel) is the place to be and to be seen, at the end of your big day out. Enjoy a traditional mulled wine or savory crêpes, right at the heart of the village. A bit of shopping, a relaxing massage at the Spa and it will soon be dinner time. The essence of Courchevel is La Mangeoire (@la_mangeoire-courchevel) where glamourous parties are held there. You will start the evening with a diner “à la française” and then the music is kicks off! For sure you will dance on the tables until the end of the night. And all starts again the day after…

Few years later, I realize that the opening of L’Apogée Courchevel was a turning point in my life. I met a wonderful team and I followed them during the summer season at the Chateau Saint Martin & Spa (Chateausaintmartin&spa) in Vence as Head Concierge. That was also the beginning of my adventure in Les Clefs d’Or Society. Nowadays I still spend half of the year in Courchevel and the summer time on the French Riviera. This permanent change is a unique opportunity to deliver magical moments to my followers’ guests. I’m in charge of all their holidays, it’s such a great mark of confidence!
