Courchev-ello, as nobody says.

This coming weekend we’re heading to France for a spot of snow spotting.  When I tell people we’re heading to Courchevel, everyone is so excited to talk about skiing, like it’s the new season of House of the Dragon.  Then, as always, I bring the disappointment, by explaining they’ll be none of this fun stuff, not on my family holidays, thank you very much.  As usual, we’re here to try out the luxury offering, whilst pretending it’s really all for the children.

I frequently refer to Paris and the Maldives as having the most competitive luxury environment on earth, but it looks like I can throw Courchevel into the mix too.  Such is the selection that we’ve skipped staying at both an Aman and Oetker property, which under normal circumstances would be the best options.  Instead we’re going to be staying in Airelles, Cheval Blanc and K2 Palace, whilst then stopping by to look at K2 Altitude, Aman Le Melezin, L’Apogee, Grandes Alpes and Ultima 1650.

Stay tuned for my reviews, which will come with my normal haste, meaning anytime within the next 3-6 working months.
