Overlooking the ski slope of Pralong, the centrally located prestigious hotel will satisfy all thrill-seekers, beginners and experienced, who are eager to ski down the 600 kilometres of slopes covered by fresh powder snow. For those who do not want to waste a minute of skiing, and for those who prefer lazing around on a quieter vacation, the ski lift of Pralong, leading to the vast skiable terrain, is only a few steps away. At Home, luxury and refinement have been conveyed. Like a cocoon with homely touches. The five-star hotel has 65 bright rooms opening up to a clear and splendid view of the Alps. Half of these rooms face the pristine valley; the other half open up to a balcony facing the skiable terrain of Les Trois Vallées.
The Alpes Hôtel Pralong overlooks the Trois Vallées and surveys the village of Courchevel spread out below. Recently crowned with a fifth star, it is a perfect example of the French art of hospitality with a typically Alpine style. Warmth and conviviality are as important here as luxury and elegance; there is no room here for ostentation. The discreet charm and Savoyard spirit of this hotel makes it highly popular with families (of whom some have holidayed here for several generations) who enjoy the spectacular scenery, a welcome which is always highly competent and exclusive facilities.

A choice location for business workshops and seminars, the Pralong hotel offers the possibility of combining work and pleasure in a single venue. Two modular meeting rooms, each of which can accommodate 30 to 40 participants, are equipped with screens and WiFi connections etc, providing cutting-edge technology. For relaxation, participants can wind down by the swimming pool or let themselves be pampered in the Wellness centre.
The Pralong wellness centre features a heated swimming pool (renowned as one of the finest in the resort), a steam bath, Jacuzzi and spa, as well as a SkinCeuticals beauty centre providing body and facial treatments by professionally trained beauty therapists.
Spa guests will have the opportunity to discover facial treatment protocols (intensive, detoxifying, unifying radiance, soothing, perfecting, and supreme anti-aging restructuring treatments, each of which is performed in 9 steps and lasts on average for an hour). Body treatments include double-peel activator, restorative resurfacing and rejuvenating firming treatment, the three anti-aging protocols developed by SkinCeuticals.
After the day’s exertions, the Wellness centre’s own physiotherapists are on hand to help you recover from any aches and stiffness with a relaxing massage.
When Courchevel was first established in 1946 it was the result of a rather mad gamble. Its founders were thinking on a grand (even monumental) scale. Nearly 70 years later, Courchevel has proved them right. With unbounded exuberance it holds its own amongst the towering peaks that surround it. The Trois Vallées ski area, to which Courchevel belongs, is the largest in the world and is spread over five different resorts. Each one has something exceptional to offer. The first is Saint-Bon at 1100 metres, followed by the typically alpine and very charming Courchevel Le Praz (1300 metres), then Courchevel 1550 which provides direct access to Courchevel 1850 and lastly Courchevel, the “jewel in the crown”. With 150 kilometres of slopes and 71 ski lifts, the resorts are an ideal destination for mountain lovers, experienced skiers or beginners, hikers, or those who simply wish to enjoy the picture postcard panoramas. Courchevel’s architecture reflects its pioneering character (it is the only French resort to contain 6 buildings included in the French Historic Monuments register). It retains the traditional charm of its early years while being constantly kept up to date and modernised so that visitors can live the dream whatever the season. Its panoramic views over the Swiss and Italian Alps are breathtaking. Courchevel’s 61 hectare ski area features 150 kilometres of slopes of which 20% are green, 36% blue, 36% red and 8% black. Skiers can enjoy the use of 71 ski lifts, of which 30 are button-lifts, drag-lifts and carpet-lifts, 20 are 4-seater chair-lifts, 12 are cable-cars, 6 are 2-seater chair-lifts and 3 are 3-seater chair-lifts. Since 8 September 2011 the resort names have dropped their altitudes: Le Praz has become Courchevel Le Praz, while Courchevel 1550 now bears the name of Courchevel Village. Courchevel 1650 is now Courchevel Moriond, while Courchevel 1850 is simply Courchevel. As always, visitors can expect a magical experience. And whatever your level of skills and your interpretation of snow sports, you will feel at home in Courchevel.
