A Guide to Courchevel Le Praz
Courchevel Le Praz, also referred to as Courchevel 1300, in our opinion, is one of the prettiest resorts in the Three Valley ski area. The village has a very traditional alpine feel to it and you can find some truly stunning traditional wooden chalets. Although it is the lowest resort in the Courchevel Valley, it has great connections to the rest of the Courchevel ski area.
Courchevel Le Praz is a small traditional French village located next to a small lake. It has a traditional apline feel, with plenty of wooden chalets, and real charm. Le Praz feels like more of a community, with great restaurants, shops, and bars available, all giving it its own buzz. It’s well connected to 1850 by one telecabine, and also to Meribel.
