The six-bedroom Chalet Margaux boasts a highly enviable location in Courchevel 1850. With a central position beside the Cospilot piste, the chalet still somehow feels secluded, nestled amongst the trees in the secure gated community of Le Hameau de Bellecôte.
In the vast Three Valleys ski domain, Courchevel welcomes skiers of all levels. Beginners and the less confident skiers can explore a wide array of gentle slopes, while intermediates will enjoy cruising around the extensive network of long, wide blues and reds. For experts, thrilling black runs like Le Grand Couloir and endless off-piste terrain await. The Three Valleys and Courchevel offer limitless adventures, and with a ski-in, ski-out location, Chalet Margaux makes for the ultimate base.
Margaux’s hand-painted interior décor and traditional wood features lend it a timeless and charming elegance and its ornately carved wraparound balconies offer stunning views of the surrounding peaks. The homely retreat features six en-suite bedrooms, an additional master suite complete with a lobby, study and bathroom, and an inviting living and dining area with a large fireplace, TV room, indoor hot tub and a well-appointed bar.

With reliable snowfall all season long and countless challenging slopes for all levels of ability, the vast resort of Val d’Isère is the top choice among the most diehard of skiers.
Commanding splendid views and a snowy forest backdrop, Inoko seamlessly blends traditional alpine touches with a modern design and state-of-the-art facilities. The stunning chalet comprises six elegant bedrooms – two of which form a connected family suite along with an adjoining children’s bunk room – a sumptuous wellness area with an indoor pool, sauna, massage and relaxation area, spacious dining and living areas and a TV room.
