Bowling alley - With the lanes that can be adapted for children it is something that all the family can enjoy. It is fairly small so booking is essential, but it is something to fill those evenings after a big day on the slopes

Hang gliding - If you fancy knowing how it feels to fly like a bird then hang gliding is certainly something you should try. Off you’d go with an experienced pilot seeing Courchevel from heights that many wouldn’t go to

Indoor ice-skating - Being able to ice skate out of the elements is something that not many resorts offer. One night a week there will also be karaoke on ice, so there is the ‘different’ après everyone always looks for

Snowmobiling - For motorsport fans across Courchevel you can spend a day following a private trail or you can set off in the evening along the pistes that have been reserved for you to test the bends of the ski area

Sledging - You can hurtle down the 2km track with its 300m difference in altitude and average incline of 15% it will certainly get your heart beating fast. If you are feeling extra adventurous you can use it in the evening when it is floodlit

Bars - From heavy après to quiet and chic there are lots of bars here in Courchevel to suit everyone’s needs

Cinema - There are two cinemas here, each of them showing English speaking films and they are great way of hiding indoors if the weather isn’t at its best

Shopping – boutiques - Not so surprisingly the shops here in Courchevel are of a particular high standard. With many small boutiques and also the high end designer shops too. It is a particularly busy town through the whole day and into the evening

Ice hockey matches - At the local indoor ice rink there are often Ice Hockey matches. Normally advertised in the local area and always makes for a great evening

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.
