Bidding farewell to ski equipment on arrival (that’s seen again later in the property’s exclusive ski lodge at the bottom of the lifts), it’s clear these apartments – decked out in mellow alpine block-check throws and sustainably sourced timber – aren’t like anywhere else in Courchevel. Not quite a hotel, but far from a chalet, the Six Senses Residences are ones for like-minded fellows and families who share the same ideals of independence. Where the foodie friend can be let loose in a state-of-the-art kitchen and the temperamental teen doesn’t have to suffer the frills of formality. But don’t let the self-catering-concern set in, because it wouldn’t live up to the brand name if their reputable hospitality was unseen. There’s still daily housekeeping, a 24/7 concierge, and (when that foodie friend has burnt one dish too many) a private chef and butlers on hand for those annual catchup soirees in the lounge-turned-social-space.
Although there’s a shuttle service to La Croisette, we’re not kidding when we say it’s possible to practically roll out of bed and reach the slopes and shops in minutes. So, if a change from the on-site restaurant – renowned Japanese joint Sumosan – is required (doubtful but we like options), there’s not far to wander for a sharing fondue frenzy or après-ski antics.

The high altitude of the ski area, along with the regular, ongoing investments in cultured snow production means The Three Valleys area is able to guarantee snow cover from the beginning of December until the end of April across much of the ski area.

The Three Valleys snow report suggests the deepest average snow levels coincide with February half term, making this the perfect time to for your winter family holiday.
