18 May New self-catered chalet in Courchevel 1650 Moriond
Our two self-catered chalets in la Tania have proved to be so popular that we’re excited to announce that we’re adding a 3rd property to the Alpine Escape self-catered chalet service…
Chalet Mollard is located in a great position within Courchevel 1650 Moriond, home to friendly restaurants, shops and bars that make it a brilliant location for a group holiday.
It’s a great addition to our chalet portfolio as it combines boutique-style design with all the creature comforts that you’d expect in an Alpine Escape chalet: TV room with games console, outdoor hot tub, quality furnishings and a welcoming feel. A little different from the classic chalet décor, Mollard has a fresh and bright ambience with Farrow & Ball pastel blues creating a New England vibe.
The location is a new venture for us: Courchevel Moriond has a really buzzy atmosphere with loads of bars and restaurants making it perfect for a self-catered ski holiday. There’s been significant investment in Moriond (or 1650 as it was previously known) with new lifts and smart hotels and restaurants popping up, including the fab Cucina Angelina – Angela Hartnett’s Italian restaurant at the foot of the slopes. The free bus service means you can easily flit between 1850 and Moriond in just a few minutes, which opens up even more options for après-ski drinks and dining out. Courchevel 1650 has been a popular spot with skiers for years for the good value accommodation and lively social scene; regular bands and DJs play throughout the week.
The skiing is ideal for all levels: a new beginners’ area has been created at the top of a brand-new gondola and lying at the far end of the Three Valleys means that the slopes are uncrowded, so intermediates can cruise the wide blues and reds in peace. Word on the street also says that there will be a huge new toboggan run appearing soon!
Courchevel Moriond’s famous Bel Air restaurant with huge sun terrace is a great spot for lunch or an afternoon drink before skiing all the way down the long blues into resort. The new Aquamotion swimming pool is a short walk or a couple of minutes on the bus and is ideal for non-skiers to relax in the gorgeous spa area, or for families with younger children. There are great slides and an outdoor area with lazy river and massage jets.
We’re delighted to have Chalet Mollard on our self-catered programme, and look forward to welcoming our guests!
