Le Mélézin’s history dates back to 1956, when it was opened as Le Savoy. The village of Courchevel was little more than an alpine pasture, a summer gateway for hikers and mountain climbers.

Enjoy spectacular mountain views throughout the French Alps luxury ski resort from wall-sized windows in the lounges, bedrooms and bathrooms, catching the alpine sun, forests of pine and larch and the skiers themselves. The scenic vistas from Courchevel 1850 open all the way from the French to the Swiss Alps.

The classically patterned parquet flooring and panelling of the Lobby and Bar feature 200 year old oak beams, adding a weathered touch to the updated surroundings. On the ground floor, bronze sculptures of wild birds add a rural French flavour.
Its classic ambience and hammam steam room, gym and pool, offer the ultimate in après-ski. The winter season runs from mid-December to mid-April.
