    Founded in 1912 by François André and subsequently developed by Lucien Barrière, Diane Barrière-Desseigne, and Dominique Desseigne, Barrière has thrived over the decades to become the top French casino brand and a benchmark for luxury hotels.

    Through its exceptional establishments, the group incarnates the symbols of French prestige, refinement and elegance and has always placed excellence of service at the heart of its concerns. In Les Neiges, Barrière takes to the ski area for the first time in its history.

    Perched between mountain and sky, Courchevel 1850 is a fairy-tale village like no other, where luxury and tradition come together. Nestled in the heart of Les Trois Vallées – the biggest ski area in the world – the resort offers over 600km of ski slopes and accommodation in luxury chalets as well as high-end hotels. Hotel Les Neiges benefits from an enviable location at the foot of the Bellecôte ski slope, with 42 rooms and suites on the slopes, and an easy stroll from the centre of Courchevel and its luxurious boutiques, and with sumptuous architecture and intimate décor.

    Pass through the doorway of Hotel Les Neiges and enter the authentic refined and relaxed décor of a chalet. The mountain tradition – revisited. A fire in the hearth. Hardwood floors. And all around, grey stone columns flecked with silver. Right from the entrance, the atmosphere is welcoming, tasteful, all-encompassing. Stones, slate, shale, oak, pine and larch woods stained in blond, amber and grey shades decorate the well-appointed reception area. Here, the Barrière Spirit shines through.

    Let the refined style and luxurious, welcoming décor of the 42 rooms and suites of the hotel sweep over you. Upon entering, the tone is set. The materials evoke ski marks in the powder, sunny slopes, fir tree bark, and glittering ice crystals. Inspired by the mountain setting, the result is captivating.

    Bedrooms are swathed in sumptuous cashmere, plush fabrics, velvet and fur. The larch panelled walls and ceilings are reminiscent of traditional chalets, given a contemporary twist. Appreciate the discreet luxury of this tasteful and authentic chalet. And at the very top, sits the 310 m2 private apartment. The exquisite materials and attention to detail are the ultimate expression of luxury and elegance.

    Take advantage of some quiet time in a cosy chalet bar. Surrounded by wood and stone, enjoy a fabulous cocktail with a view over the mountains around. The bar at Hotel Barrière Les Neiges is perfectly designed for enchanting occasions at the foot of the slopes. With its Studio Harcourt portraits arranged on the walls, guests are encouraged to spend a relaxing break, and to take in their surroundings under the gaze of cinema industry icons.
