Vicky, April 2024

Luxury hotels and fine dining are inextricably linked, so it's no wonder many of the world's greatest restaurants are also found in the some of world's most exclusive ski resorts.

Courchevel in the French Alps is top of the class when it comes to Michelin Star status, making it the culinary hotspot for winter sports lovers.

Here's a quick guide to the many restaurants of Courchevel making the grade in 2024.

The highly acclaimed 1947 is known for its playfulness, sense of adventure and impeccable wine list - in fact, the restaurant is named after Chateau Cheval Blanc's legendary 1947 Bordeaux vintage.

With intimate surroundings and just five tables in the dining room, booking well in advance is essential.

1 Star

The Michelin Guide praises chef Thomas Prod'Homme's "bold risk-taking character" as he "elegantly slaloms between local ingredients, winter flavours and Provençal inspirations" at Baumanière 1850.

This is sophisticated dining in a contemporary setting at Hotel Le Strato - another star for Courchevel's highest village at 1850 metres.

Le Farçon

La Tania
1 Star

Neighbour to the ultra-glamourous Courchevel, the more low-key resort of La Tania is home to Le Farçon.

The self-styled 'Savoyard Peddler', chef Julien Machet, takes diners on a tour of the historic Duchy of Savoy, incorporating the flavours of the Savoie, Piedmont, Valais, Aosta and even the Alpes Provençales.

A €68 3-course lunch menu offers an affordable way to discover at least one of Courchevel's 12 Michelin Stars, and children are welcomed here too with dedicated children's lunch and dinner menus.
