and the most desirable skiing experience”

The skiing season is only round the corner and on December 11, 2013, 
the Oetker Collection (Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc, Le Bristol Paris) will reveal its latest “Masterpiece Hotel” and open its chalet doors in Courchevel, one of the most fashionable ski resorts situated in the height of the French Alps’s Les Trois Vallées.

Nestled in the heart of the exclusive Jardin Alpin, a very desirable area of Courchevel, L’Apogée Courchevel will enjoy an outstanding location in the ski resort by the foot of the ski slopes and breathtaking vistas over Courchevel village.




The new five-star hotel will comprise 20 spacious double rooms, 33 suites, a spectacular penthouse featuring three bedrooms with its own Jacuzzi and private terrace, a spa (Sisley products) and a state of the art fitness centre featuring treatment rooms and an indoor swimming pool.




Two stellar, contemporary French designers were given the honour to design and style the space: Joseph Dirand (A-Gent of Style ‘dissected’ the parisian restaurant Monsieur Bleuhere) and India Mahdavi (Coburg Bar at the Connaught, Claridge’s).

What makes this collaboration interesting and challenging is that the minimalist Dirand has brought his hyper-sophisticated, Parisian and masculine touch with his grey palette to the drawing board whereas maximalist Mahdavi injected the hotel with her fun, quirky, feminine and colourful appeal.

The result is a chic, contemporary design with oodles of warmth and comfort that reflects the distinctive touches of its creators whilst remaining sympathetic with the Alpine surroundings. Luxurious materials like marble (Fior di Bosco in the bathrooms) and metals (bronze and brass), bespoke design with Tyrolean craft, handmade soft furnishings like wool, suede and furs, a warm palette of Bordeaux, brown, green, blue and gold (light and bathroom fixtures) give plenty of contrast, character and interest to the stylish cocoon.





The signature restaurant is directed by two-star Michelin Chef Yannick Franques and features a dramatic grill centerpiece that leads onto a large outdoor terrace – with underfloor heating, of course – overlooking the runs and a champagne bar.

There is also a private chalet offering five bedrooms, a spa and its own home cinema. The chalet is fully staffed with private butler, room attendants and a personal chef who has a superb kitchen at their disposal and also a private lift with direct access to the ski slopes.

L’Apogée Courchevel looks like the perfect location to shoot a ‘pardee’ weekend for Made in Chelsea this winter.
