The French resort of Courchevel has confirmed its place as a world leader in gastronomy as well as skiing by achieving a further two stars in the new 2013 Michelin Guide, bringing its total number of stars to 12.
Buying and owning a property in Courchevel, which is split into four connected villages and part of the huge Trois Vallées ski area, is now even more appealing if you’re a bit of a foodie and enjoy sampling world-class cuisine. The resort’s 12 stars are split across seven restaurants – meaning you could visit a different eatery each day of the week!
“The latest two stars in Courchevel were gained one each by the La Table du Kilimanjaro, which now has two stars, and the K2 Hotel, which has gained its first after just one year of opening,” said Julian Walker of Skiingproperty.com. “Courchevel has always had an upmarket edge over rival resorts, with its outstanding facilities and chic properties. This latest achievement confirms that demand at this end of the market remains strong, not only for expensive homes but all the trimmings that come with them. ”
The other restaurants in Courchevel that hold Michelin stars are Les Airelles (2 stars), Cheval Blanc (2), Le Chabichou (2), Le Strato (2) and L’Azimut (1). Other resorts in the French Alps where restaurants earned new stars in the latest Michelin Guide include Mégeve, where the Flocons de Sel has become the only restaurant in the French Alps to be awarded a third star, Chamonix, Chambéry and Val d’Isère.
Added Mr Walker: “Having such an incredible selection of world-class restaurants to choose from makes property in the French Alps attractive to a truly international market and increases its long-term investment proposition.”
