EUROPE’S DELUXE WINTER OF WONDER
As Europe’s ski resorts, mountain towns and cold climate escapes enjoy a fresh blanket of snow, a new collection of alpine lodges, chic chalets and glimmering attractions are beginning to welcome their first visitors. Keeping a close eye on the very best hospitality the 2018/19 season has to offer, Joe Mortimer rounds up some of the most stand-out, must-know arrivals this winter on page 166 of The Cultured Traveller issuu.com/theculturedtraveller/docs/24/166, and in the SPOTLIGHT section of our web portal www.theculturedtraveller.com/24/spotlight.
CHALET L’ALPENSIA @ L’APOGÉE COURCHEVEL
The collection of luxury hotels, lodges and chalets in Courchevel is unrivalled in France, with some of the country’s most exclusive hideaways providing world-class accommodation for discerning guests. When L’ Apogée Courchevel opened five winters ago, the 55-room hotel quickly claimed its place among the best of the best, with stylish interiors by Parisian design duo India Madhavi and Joseph Dirand, not to mention some of the largest rooms and suites in Courchevel.
Part of the exclusive Oetker Collection, L’Apogée Courchevel offers guests ski-in/ski-out access to the surrounding Trois Vallées ski area and a host of gastronomic experiences, including sushi and sake at Koori, gourmet dining at Le Comptoir L’Apogée, and a sumptuous Cigar Lounge in which to enjoy the finer things in life.
New for this season, Chalet L’Alpensia is fresh icing on L’Apogée Courchevel's cake: a 550 sqm five-bedroom chalet spread across five floors, complete with its own spa, home cinema and the services of a private butler and chef.
