Chalet Montana – Courchevel 1850
A characterful and traditional five bedroom chalet with magnificent views
Best time to visit
Within the glitzy and elegant resort of Courchevel, Chalet Montana is nicknamed ‘The Chocolate Box’ – a haven of coziness and a real hidden treasure. The five bedroom chalet sleeps ten comfortably, with space for an extra two children, and guests feel immediately at home in this comforting and cosy mountain retreat. The chalet has a super location right by the Bellecote piste, and while the atmosphere is more quintessentially Alpine than other modern apartments, the facilities certainly aren’t lacking: there’s a cinema room, hot tub and steam room combining the finest luxury with old-school mountain charm.
- Breakfast, afternoon tea and delicious four course dinners with cocktails and canapes, along with an open bar and unlimited champagne
- Indulge in the chalet’s mini wellness suite, complete with a hammam, monsoon shower, dedicated relaxation area and sunken jacuzzi
- In-chalet ski and boot fitting service, and a private minibus to take you to and from the slopes
The traditional building of Chalet Montana is constructed from reclaimed ancient timber and natural stone, and it’s a picture-perfect Alpine home that belongs on a postcard. Inside, the combined living and dining areas are split-level and feature a huge open fire – with deep sofas, open fireplaces and a large dining table for cosy evenings en famille. A spacious south-facing balcony with sun loungers leads off the living room, giving fabulous views. Throughout the charming building, hand-painted frescoes of mountain scenes enhance the atmosphere.
