France – One of the best ski destinations worldwide

Elevating the concept of mountain living, Six Senses Residences Courchevel offer a luxurious and immersive experience, in a location like no other. Nestled in the heart of the French Alps, Courchevel 1850 is a beacon of excellence. Known for its world class skiing, unparalleled natural beauty, and the largest concentration of Michelin-starred restaurants in a ski-resort, it has rightfully earned the reputation of being one of the best ski destinations worldwide. Primely positioned within the exclusive ski resort, Six Senses Residences offer the most prestigious six-star standard of alpine living, with a boutique collection of self-contained duplex penthouses and apartments available to rent or purchase, that incorporate its famous Six Senses Spa, a ski concierge service, as well as the esteemed Sumosan restaurant, showcasing Courchevel’s finest sushi.
The meticulously designed interiors seamlessly blend contemporary aesthetics with mountain influence; the 53 apartments epitomise life at the top. Unique to the destination, the apartments are very spacious with fully equipped kitchens and both indoor and outdoor family dining areas. Guests can indulge in privacy and comfort reminiscent of their home, made easier by world-class hotel service. 

Taking the stress out of a trip to the mountains, guests can enjoy transfers, shuttle services, continental breakfasts, daily housekeeping, a ski concierge with a heated boot room, and exclusive spa and restaurant access. Guests can rejuvenate following a day on the mountains at the spa by indulging in result-oriented facials, and muscle-focused massages, as well as basking in the warmth of the sauna or outdoor hot tub. Especially for this season, the higher-level bookings come with a private breakfast chef, butler service, and credit to spend on the exquisite spa treatment menu. 
Regarded as one of the best ski destinations in the world, Courchevel is home to long and cruisy blue and green runs, a perfect resort for beginners, as well as the highest number of black runs in The Three Valleys including the World Ski Championships run Eclipse, and numerous off-piste adventures ideal for thrill seekers and the most advanced skiers.  As one of the world’s highest ski resorts, Courchevel has reliable snow with 85% of the ski area proudly sitting above 1,800 metres. The north-facing slopes stay cold throughout the winter ensuring pristine snow conditions from early December until late April helping maximise the season for visitors. 

Positioned at a lofty altitude in the Les Trois Vallées with over 600km of pistes and 200 ski lifts, the world’s largest ski area, guests can enjoy direct access with the ski-in ski-out lodge at La Croisette just a short walk away. Courchevel’s blue skies and powdery snow make it the ultimate destination for snow sports, but Six Senses Residences’ close proximity and customised service on and off the slopes, is what turns skiers and snowboarders’ dreams into a reality. Recognising that Courchevel is a place for everyone, no matter the age or mountain confidence, the residences offer an array of impressive activities. 
In response to the magnitude of its location, Six Senses Residences Courchevel provides guests with a range of opportunities for immersive exploration to fully savour the snowy mountains. One option is to surrender the reins to a team of huskies for a cosy sledding excursion under a warm blanket, as you search for animal trails with the backing melodies from the forest. For an unforgettable walking experience, Six Senses have guides that lead snow shoeing excursions, allowing guests to meander along frozen lakes whilst discovering the natural beauty and history of Courchevel.

Taking methods of exploration to new heights, visitors can embark on a scenic helicopter ride, to see the world’s largest ski resort from above. The Three Valleys, in themselves are a sight to behold, but for a truly spectacular experience, soar over Mont Blanc for a bird’s eye view of Europe’s highest mountain peak. For a slower paced, yet equally thrilling journey, individuals can opt for a hot air balloon ride, whilst enjoying a glass of champagne high above the mountains – an experience not to be missed. Finally, offering daredevils a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take flight, Courchevel is the only certified place on the planet to offer a Tandem Wingsuit from a helicopter at an altitude of 6,000m, putting an exhilarating twist on skydiving for the ultimate adrenaline rush. Relaxing, yet thrilling, luxurious, yet personal, Six Senses Residences offers the very best in Courchevel. 
The trend for total seclusion and privacy when travelling is growing and Six Senses Residences Courchevel is the perfect combination of personalised home living with a 5* luxury hotel standard of service. With its high altitude and guaranteed snow, countless Michelin starred restaurants, designer stores and its very own airstrip, Courchevel is a destination like no other and should be top of everyone’s ski bucket list this winter.
