The Village of Le Praz Courchevel

Le Praz boasts a good selection of lively bars, mouth-watering creperies and fine restaurants including "Le Bistrot du Praz", one of the most famous restaurants in the 3 Valleys. There is also the Darbello and the S Courch Sports bar that serves excellent pizzas and have a host of live bands playing and show all the major sporting events in English. The S Courch is 50 metres from the Chalet Chardon Blanc. Le Praz has a selection of local supermarkets and shops less than 50 metres from the chalet.

Courchevel Le Praz is excellently situated with two telecabine lifts, the Praz and Foret ski lifts are located less than 200 metres from Chalet Chardon Blanc. Courchevel Le Praz, truly Savoyard in character, is definitely the prettiest of the four Courchevel villages. A quaint village square, rustic chalets and narrow cobbled streets create a traditional French village ambience.

The Praz telecabine lift takes you directly into the centre of Courchevel 1850 in less than 10 mins. The Foret telecabine lift takes you up towards the summit of "La Loze" at 2196m, giving easy access to the wonderful skiing of Courchevel / La Tania or the Meribel valley and Val Thoren valleys.

Of course for those wishing to stay behind for an après ski drink in one of the sophisticated bars of 1850, a free ski bus service operates (until 1:00am every night)
