Check out the tips Melissa Freitas of hotels in Courchevel and discover the majestic Ecrin Blanc, one of the best accommodation options in the south of France

Courchevel is a charming village in the south of France and is known by many as a luxury destination, being the choice of many celebrities and even royalty for the winter season.

When planning a trip to the village, I was delighted with the possibility of staying at the Ecrin Blanc, a newly opened hotel that impressed me from the first moment.

Ecrin Blanc Hotel

The resort has 127 brand new rooms, as it opened in style in December 2019. The hotel offers modern, yet cozy and rustic rooms and suites, without losing the magical feeling of staying in the middle of the mountains.

Upon arriving at the hotel, I was promptly received by the welcome team, then I was taken to the room, where I was checked in, with all the exclusivity in the world, without having to stand in lines or wait at reception.


The suite where I stayed had two bedrooms, a large TV room combined with a full kitchen, and a very charming balcony overlooking Aquamotion (I'll talk about it later).

The master bedroom of the suite is large and spacious, has a flat screen TV, radio, wardrobe and access to the main balcony, the second bedroom, although smaller, has all the amenities.

One of the highlights of this suite is the decoration, which enchants with wooden details and fabrics that resemble animal skin, leaving the environment with that rustic and charming atmosphere.

The hotel's bathroom was another surprise, as the designers managed to leave the environment modern, but at the same time with a unique and intimate touch. It is worth mentioning the quality of the amenity kits, which were complete and fragrant, really a superior standard. In addition, the bathtub is an excellent size, being large and spacious, perfect for relaxing after a day of skiing in the mountains.

The first floor has a restaurant that serves drinks and snacks, offering a perfect menu for a quick meal or an afternoon coffee. In addition to this small restaurant, on the same floor you will find the hotel store with beautiful options for mountain clothes and the like, a beautiful kids club, and other huge rooms that offer guests excellent environments to sit and chat.


The breakfast at the hotel also impressed me, Ecrin Blanc also excelled in hot dishes such as: bacon, sausages, beans, scrambled eggs, potatoes and more. The breads, croissants and other items from the patisserie deserve special mention, they were delicious, in addition to a good variety of natural juices, yogurts, teas, coffee and milk are also present in the buffet. I cannot fail to mention the presence of espresso machines, where guests choose the flavor they like best and make their own coffee.

Ski in – ski out

For ski lovers who want to make the most of the region's slopes, Ecrin Blanc is perfect. The hotel is ski in – ski out, where you leave the accommodation skiing, without worrying about transport and buses to the slopes.

The hotel offers free ski equipment rental for its guests, the store is beautiful, and everything is very new, after all, the hotel opened just a few days before Christmas 2019.

Another convenience offered to guests is the ski room. Attached to the equipment rental shop, the area has lockers to store your ski equipment.

A very interesting factor of the Ecrin Blanc ski room lockers is that there, you don't have a key, your guest bracelet opens your locker automatically, which frankly, is a huge practicality when you are arriving from the ski slope with all your equipment in hand.

kids club

The hotel's Kids Club is another highlight. The space is open every day of the week, and serves children from 4 to 17 years old, with programs suitable for their respective ages.

I visited the space and loved meeting the team responsible for the little ones, all very polite and receptive. In addition, the space is safe and suitable for children, as well as being very charming.


One of the best benefits of staying at Écrin Blanc, in my opinion, is free access to Aquamotion for hotel guests, which has an exclusive tunnel connecting both, without having to go out and face the snow to cross to the other side. In addition, access is made easy for guests, who do not have to queue, just go straight to the turnstiles and use their guest bracelet to enter.

Aquamotion is an indoor water park that has several heated pools, slides, entertainment area, relaxation area with jacuzzi, saunas and a Spa. In addition, it also offers a gym, a climbing wall and indoor surfing for those looking to venture into a new sport.

The place is really complete and a lot of fun, for me the best part is the heated outdoor pool, where you literally swim in the middle of the snow.


Another tip is not to miss the hotel's restaurant, The Grill, one of the best restaurants I've ever been to.

The restaurant's menu is complete and has options for all tastes. During these days I tried several dishes, and all, without any exception, were impeccable, including the desserts.

In addition to the first-class cuisine, the hotel staff is really helpful and attended to us every day.
