There's a certain insulated quiet that blankets a snowy night in peace. But as day breaks at Le Portetta, a luxury ski hotel in Courchevel, France, the unmistakable swooshing sound of metal and fiberglass skis and boards bring life to this legendary hill.
It doesn’t get any better than mid-mountain on Courcheval 1650, and Le Portetta takes full advantage of its orientation. After a day of off-piste skiing or riding, grab après bites and beers at The Brasserie and Terrace, the largest sun terrace in all of Courchevel.
Continue on into the cozy, fire-lit bar, and on to The Portetta Restaurant for updated classical French favorites. The spa may be on your evening agenda, or perhaps the next morning - depending on how many times you bit the dust during the day.
When dusk gives into night, saunter back to your room, loft, or if you're lucky, lodge. All spaces are adorned with rustic wood walls, heavy linens, wilderness views, and WiFi. Lofts sit proudly on the top two floors, and offer large, open spaces. The four ski-in/-out lodges sport private saunas, and are for those that need as much indoor space - as they do outdoor.
