Step foot into Hotel Portetta, Courchevel and let the smell and warmth of an open roaring log fire lull you into relaxation.
Portetta Hotel has 44 rooms, family suites and apartment lofts (two to three bedrooms), all conveniently set at the foot of Courcheval 1650’s slopes. Interiors are warm and woody with earthy mountain tones throughout, providing a cosy setting for a week of skiing.
What we really like is that Portetta thinks about everyone. All rooms have the ability to be twins or double and each has stunning views of either the slopes or on the valley. Some family rooms have bunks for children, while cots and extra beds can be provided for children under 11 at extra charge. Babysitters can also be arranged with 24 hours notice. There are two rooms adapted for wheelchair users.
As rates are quoted on a half board (breakfast and dinner) basis, we love that a stay here means soaking up the essence of a true skiing holiday which most definitely includes good food. Menus change seasonally and daily, where local chef Henri guarantees a Savoyard experience with fondue on Tuesdays and fish on Thursdays; all menus are complimented by a carefully selected wine list. If you prefer something a little more intimate, maybe a private catered dinner with an excellent chef is on the cards.
The perfect ski experience starts and ends right in your hotel, with friendly faces helping you to fit out your gear from head to toe, and of course your own space to store your kit. The ski school is right next door, so you can enjoy a steamy cuppa on the terrace while watching your little ones learn.
If your legs are aching and you need a day off, then just a short drive away you will find tobogganing, Ice skating, bowling, Go-Karting and more. The hotel also has a fitness area and the spa facilities include a sauna and hammam as well as a candle-lit relaxation lounge.
