    • Piste : 400m

    , nights

    Psst; your ideal Courchevel chalet might not actually be a traditional chalet. A skip down the road from the Croisette brings you to Vieille Forge on the first floor of a beautiful stone and wood clad building next to the old fire station. A swift lift whisks you up to the chalet apartment where the layout, design and feel of the place belongs in the mountains. Stylishly done from the striking stone fireplace roaring into the dining area to the snug lounge with a more than inviting little bar. The chalet is incredibly spacious with bedrooms far larger than necessary, half of which access the wrap around balconies (we're certainly not complaining), not bad considering you're only 200m from the bustling town centre.

    You'll find the lovely staff in house to give you tips and ski advice plus rustle you up hot options at breakfast each morning as well as afternoon cakes and cuppas to come back for. Canapés come out with the fizz before dinner and the main event is a four-course affair including a cheese board and plenty of wine to wash it all down with.

    What we like

    • 400m (5 minute walk) from the Croisette where the main ski lifts start, the plantrey piste is even closer
    • The fireplace is a definite highlight, take a look at the images if you don't believe us
    • Heated boot racks in the ski room
    • Spacious bedrooms with that lovely chalet feel

    Worth knowing

    • The quickest way to the main ski area is a 350m walk and then a set of stairs up through La Croisette though you can walk a little further round and avoid the stairs
    • There is a yoga studio underneath the chalet if you fancy a spot of pigeon pose
    • Wrap around balconies either side of the building
    • We can only apologise for the low quality images, we're getting some new ones taken shortly

    The Vieille Forge (meaning old forge) backs onto the main street of Courchevel 1850. It's a great position just 350m to La Croisette and the main Courchevel 1850 ski lifts. You can take the stairs from La Croisette entrance to get to the lifts or walk a little further around if you don't fancy tackling them in your ski boots. There is a cut through next to the Hotel Olympic which will make getting the resort centre even easier. Alternatively, before you reach La Croisette you'll find the Plantrey piste which you can take down to the chairlift of the same name which will take you up to the right side of the valley (you can ski down to La Croisette from here if you want to).


    There are four twin rooms in the Vieille Forge each will have bathrobes and slippers as well as Molten Brown toiletries.

    Balcony room

    Balcony rooms have twin beds and en-suite bathrooms, one has a shower and the other a bath. Both have access to the wrap around balconies.

    Sleeps max. 2

    Twin rooms

    These two twin rooms don't have balcony access but they are slightly larger, one has a separate toilet to the bathroom and both have baths.

    Sleeps max. 2

    Board basis

    You’ll enjoy a continental-style buffet breakfast with an optional hot dish, afternoon tea, pre-dinner drinks and canapés as well as a four-course evening meal with wine.

    One night each week, there is a chalet staff night off where your evening meal is not included. On this day, breakfast and afternoon tea are served as normal and the hosts will be happy to make dinner reservations at a local restaurant for you.

    Flexible durations

    Vieille Forge is an ideal option for couples, families and groups looking to be in the centre of Courchevel 1850.  It can be booked for flexible durations throughout the season including New Year and half term, whether room by room or on a sole occupancy basis. It‘s a great chalet option for a short break or ski weekend to Courchevel.
