Overview

Courchevel 1850’s very own BFG

The story of the Big Friendly Giant begins with Sophie in a silent dormitory. The start of your favourite fairytale week begins with the silence of the pines surrounding your perfect chalet. Well, perhaps with the intermittent thump as snow slides off the branches and lands on the white carpet we have rolled out for you.

Let us introduce you to what your alpine dreams are made of. If the BFG can take Sophie to Dream Country, then let us take you to Courchevel 1850’s Chalet Gentianes.

Tucked away within the Residence de Bellecôte, your home for the week will be in one of Courchevel 1850’s most prestigious and enviable locations. Your first glimpse of this gentle giant is of three colossal floors standing proud amidst the pine trees. This is just the start of Chalet Gentianes, for below the snowy ground are two further magnificent floors. We know that for you, an enviable location manages to combine seclusion yet still enabling you to walk to the heart of Courchevel 1850 in five minutes. However, why face the midst of winter when your chauffeur will be waiting for the call to whisk you to your favourite boutique store.

Courchevel 1850 is the land of giants, so how we hear you ask does Chalet Gentianes stand so proud and tall above all others? In Giant Country yes, there are other chalets like Chalet Gentianes that offer an enviable ski-in ski-out location, a butler at your beck and call and an included private ski instructor for six days. However, just as friendship, dreams and believing are common themes in the plot of the BFG, we couldn’t think of three better words to describe your favourite week at Chalet Gentianes.

We think that the BFG had the right idea when he said “this is where all dreams is beginning”. Whilst the BFG might have collected dreams in glass jars, luckily you have your friends in high places to ensure that dreams of your perfect chalet are kept safe until they come true.

With seven lavish bedrooms, spread out across the three upper expansive floors, you can ensure that space comes guaranteed. However perish the thought that after a busy day of skiing and being seen at après, we would make you take the stairs from the ground level ski room. Say goodbye to your private ski instructor for the day and let the elevator carry you down to your very own fantasy land - Chalet Gentianes’ astonishing wellness suite. From the grandeur of the swimming pool to the hot tub where you can survey where to unwind next. Choose from the hammam, gymnasium, rest area or massage room where your dedicated SkiBoutique PA has your favourite treatment lined up. Sheer bliss.

Afterwards, head upstairs where Frobscottle has been replaced by your favourite finest vintage. After a dreamy couple of hours in the wellness suite, continue to be mesmerized by the crackle of the imposing fire and the snow silently falling amidst the pines in your very own winter wonderland. You can guarantee the first tracks down the Bellecôte piste tomorrow morning will be yours.

Fast-forward and the dining table is laid for yet another sumptuous four-course dinner, prepared by Chalet Gentianes’ talented chef. Whether you wish to invite a big friendly giant to dinner or thirteen of your closest skiing companions, we’ll leave the choice up to you. Between us, you might find the company a little more intellectual if you go for the latter. Either way, with Chalet Gentianes’ dedicated team of staff, your exact requests will be known long before you even realize yourself.

Dine beneath giant lampshades, as the ambience takes you from day to drinks and canapés through to another unhurried indulgent evening. The softly illuminated vaulted ceilings and decadent fabrics set the scene as winter is left firmly behind opulent curtains. It’ll soon be that hour of the evening when the complimentary spirits bar is joined by exaggerated stories of waist deep powder, first lines and rapturous applause. After all, these are what such evenings were made for.

Just as the BFG leaves an indelible impression of big-heartedness, so will Chalet Gentianes. As the BFG once wisely said, “dreams is full of mystery and magic…do not try to understand them”. As your friends in high places, together with Chalet Gentianes, we believe that you have chosen a very good place to start fulfilling just such alpine dreams as these.

FROM THE PRESS

Voted in Top 15 Most Wonderful Chalets in Courchevel by Luxury Design 


“World’s most spectacular luxury chalets - A spectacular chalet with a swimming pool, complete with Jacuzzi and steam room and six ensuite bedrooms each with a dressing area, plasma TV, DVD player and iPod dock.”

WHAT WE THINK

This has to be one of my favourite chalets – it's so luxurious but understated and in the perfect position, backing onto the piste. It is set in a private area so seclusion guaranteed but it is only a short walk into the resort centre. However it has the most lovely swimming pool and spa area so you never actually want to leave the chalet.

Gastronome

Do you love food? I don't know many people that don't - there is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. But when that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience of high end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We hand-pick our chalet partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered ski chalets: 

A perfect start to the day

No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful. 

 

High tea temptations

Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.

 

Celebrate with Canapés 

When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen. 

 

Serving up a sensuous feast

Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights. Dinner is served in the chalet for 6 nights, leaving you one night to experience the fantastic restauarants in Courchevel. 

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides an open bar of beer, wines, spirits and mixers. 

 

Children & dietary requirements 

The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children. You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
