What Our Nannies Can Do in Courchevel

The options for fun are endless in Courchevel! To warm up after a chilly day, our nannies can take the children to the Aquamotion leisure centre. This place makes the perfect visit for the little ones who can enjoy splash pools and water slides. For adventures out in the snow, there is the Moriond Luge Race, a 3km race course in Courchevel 1650 that runs through trees, tunnels, and gullies. The Western Park is another area great for young ski fanatics with its entertaining beginner ski zone in Courchevel Moriond 1650. You can also try dog sledding if you love fluffy companions or the Verdons by Night for some thrilling night time skiing.

In the afternoons, our nannies can arrange indoor activities such as bowling and ice skating, or a cinema night in 1850. For a tasty experience, children can enjoy the deliciousness of fondue made from locally melted cheese. Our nannies also love to take children of all ages up on the bubble and take in the picturesque sceneries. They can also try linked sledging; a snake like sledging suitable for groups.

About Courchevel Ski Resort

Courchevel is not one single resort, but spread across four different altitudes:

Courchevel 1850 is where the rich and famous come ‘to see and be seen’. The secluded Jardin Alpin sector is where all the spectacular chalets and hotels are located. There are gentle beginner slopes and a vast array of intermediate, advanced and off-piste couloirs to keep even the most accomplished skiers busy. Courchevel 1850 is home to the five-star hotels, high-end chalets and Michelen-starred restaurants.

Courchevel 1650 is lower down the valley with more reasonably priced accommodation. Piste wise, there are some fairly long wide blue runs, where you will often find some of the best snow and quietest slopes in Courchevel.

Courchevel 1550 is quieter, with just a few chalets and hotels. A new high speed 6-person chairlift was installed in winter 2004/05 offering a very quick connection to the pistes of 1850. There is also a bubble lift that takes you into the centre of 1850.

Courchevel 1300, also known as Le Praz is the lowest of the Courchevel resorts and has 2 bubble lifts to take you up to 1850. The village has lots of little nooks and crannies and is easily the prettiest part of Courchevel. You can ski back to 1300 all season due to the investment in snow cannons and the 2 black runs (Jean Blanc & Jockeys) are 2 of the greatest runs in skiing.
