Courchevel 1650 is also known as Courchevel Moriond which was its original name. It’s a lively village with good nightlife, with a great selection of apres bars and clubs open until the small hours. The village is centred on a quiet square and so retains the feel of an Alpine village and the village basks in the sun thanks to its location on a ledge.
The ski area of Courchevel 1650 is predominantly made up of green and blue runs but due to the excellent lift system you are very quickly into the whole of the Three Valleys ski regions. . The slopes above Courchevel 1650 are wide and usually a little quieter than those higher on the mountain and there are some good areas for heading off-piste. There are also some great tree-lined runs for days when the weather closes in.
There is a free bus links all the other Courchevel villages from early morning until around 1am and so you can go easily up to Courchevel 1850 for its more jet set nightlife if you wish and as the Aquamotion centre is just below 1650 it’s very easy to get to, in fact it’s just a few minutes’ walk from our chalets or hop on the free bus. There are also 2 lifts from 1650 into 1850, ensuring that easy access into the whole of the Three Valleys are including Meribel and Val Thorens.
