Small but perfectly formed, this centrally located, classic Savoyard chalet has style and luxury in abundance.
Le Saint Joseph has an unbeatable location in the centre of Courchevel 1850, just a couple of minutes from the ski-lift and an easy amble to the chic boutiques of rue Park City. Owned by the Courchevel restaurateur Eric Tournier, this intimate jewel of a hotel does understated luxury perfectly. It’s rooms, suites and four-bedroom duplex apartments are all individually decorated in quietly sumptuous Savoyard style: think wooden beams and polished floors, deep sofas upholstered in rich fabrics, and an eclectic selection of antiques, paintings and objects d’art sourced from Paris, Lyon and Naples. The apartments – a rarity in Courchevel 1850 – offer luxury, space and style on a grand scale with multiple, ultra-modern bathrooms, some with their own Jacuzzi and sauna, a super-sized plasma TV in the lounge, a ski dressing room with boot warmers and a private entrance. Guests are lucky enough to have Tournier dining on site: Le Hussard, a nicely convivial gourmet Italian restaurant, and the laidback Grand Café bar which serves delicious Thai cuisine.
Accommodation: 14 Guest Rooms and 2 Apartments

Winter Activities Les Trois Vallees is the most extensive linked ski area in the World and some of the best snow conditions in Europe are consistently found here. La Saulire on the Courchevel valley offers some of the most challenging runs. With gradients of 38 degrees these are among the most taxing black runs in the world. Also in Courchevel and in Meribel there is a wide range of good blue and red slopes for the intermediate skier. For the less adventurous there are many green runs leading back to the village. There are also more than a dozen cross-country routes in the area.
Snowboarding has become increasingly popular and Courchevel has created snow parks, snow rides and half pipes to meet the demand, while a range of other winter activities like ice-climbing (indoors and outdoors), snowshoeing, snowmobiling, tobogganing and ice-skating are attractive options.
