Courchevel is a city in Savoie.

Understand[edit]

The most chic alpine resort in France, Courchevel features 11 luxury five stars hotels, 6 restaurants awarded with the Michelin star, jet-set and royal clientele, luxury boutiques, exceptional SPAs in the heart of the 3 Valleys, the world's largest ski domain, with 372 miles of trails and slopes and 198 lifts.

Get in[edit]

The nearest major airport is in Geneva, 149 km away, but there are regular flights to the smaller airport of Chambery and also many visitors fly to Lyon or Grenoble. It is also possible to fly into the resort by private plane or helicopter although the airport is one of the most dangerous in the world as it has a very short runway of only 525 m.

  • Heli Securiteprovides executive helicopter transfers to/from Courchevel. Heli Securite's pilots have years of flying experience and are highly skilled in landing in Courchevel. Helicopter charter is the best way to get to this hip resort. Getting to the French Alps by car is time-consuming and often challenging, whereas the helicopter will get you to a destination of your choice in no time and in the lap of luxury.
