A Ultimate Guide to Courchevel 1550
Courchevel Village, often referred to as Courchevel 1550, is a much prettier and quieter resort than the other areas in Courchevel. However, thanks to the excellent lift system in place you can get to Courchevel 1850 and the main ski area within one lift.
Courchevel 1550 is perfect for families, offering a relaxed feel with great value chalets, away from the hustle and bustle of the much livlier Courchevel 1650 and 1850. Despite being slightly further down the mountain, it is incredibly well connected to the other areas of the Three Valleys, by a gondola straight to 1850, or a bus service to the other villages within Courchevel.
