FOR those who like to be in the very centre of things, the
perfectly delightful La Vieille Forge has everything you could wish for
in a ski chalet.
Located close to the centre of Courchevel 1850, this deluxe chalet –
comprising a spacious apartment on an upper floor of a beautifully
designed timber-faced building – combines warmth,
elegance and character.
Walls are largely woodpanelled throughout, with stone-tiled
flooring – and the furniture in all the rooms is both stunningly
stylish, comfortable and practical. This, combined with the
location, gives you the best of both worlds.
If you want to go out, the ultra-chic centre of Courchevel is
literally only steps away from your front door – and the evening
attractions at this world-class resort include nightclubs
with live music, piano bars and discos, as well as ice hockey
matches and ski-jumping.
But you will also face the draw of a cosy night in with a drink
in front of a roaring fire – even more luxurious if you’re watching the
down outside – and some mellow music.
The fabulous position means you can also make the most of the
village immediately after skiing, with not only lively bars but bustling
markets too, selling local produce including
cheese, wine and honey.
The chalet sleeps up to eight and all four bedrooms have private
facilities, with slippers, bathrobes and a selection of Aromatherapy
Associates products waiting for you. The living room
is large with plenty of comfortable seating, a television and a
balcony running round two sides. The spacious dining room, with a huge
oak table, is
open-plan with the kitchen and has an open fire – and a large
There is a lift from street level, and the ski room, beside the
apartment’s front door, has heated boot racks. No wonder La Vieille
Forge is so popular with our guests.
