Once upon a time, was a very classy palace in the heart of a snowy setting … This place does exist on earth… or rather on the snow… it is the hotel L’Apogée Courchevel. An exceptional place part of the Oetker Collection group, which combines luxurious services with passion and perfection. Thanks to a unique location on the ancient Olympic hill, on top of the famous Alpine Garden of Courchevel, the view of the three Valleys is breathtaking. Indulge yourself with a night, a weekend, a holiday of happiness and sweetness in one of the stunning suites and enjoy the good life thanks to a remarkable, extraordinary and personalized service for each customer.
A palace that will not leave you frozen
At the top of the French Alps, this snow star displays its impressive wooden and stone façade. “Luxury is to be experienced more than to be seen” is the motto that guided the inspirations of the two famous architects and designers of the hotel. Thus, the Iranian-Egyptian India Mahdavi created the private spaces (rooms, suites and penthouse) and Joseph Dirand, the public spaces (restaurants, salons, bar, lounge). You will be charmed by the striking contrast between the warm elegance of the place and the snow. Purple velvet “the color of fire and Christmas”, furs, wood, chimneys for a mountain spirit and greens as deep as the green of the pines transform this 5 star, not into a classic chalet but more into a “family Castle “.
I was lucky to stay in the Prestige Suite and its 110 sqm, marble bathroom, living room, bedroom, balconies and panoramic views over the valley of Courchevel. Sweet «Home Suite Home», in this cozy and design mini-cottage…
