Why Stay At Les Suites de la Potinière
You'll have a front-row view to some of France's best alpine skiing from this modern hotel in Courchevel.
Just two minutes from a clutch of high-speed lifts that will zip you right to the tony slopes of Courchevel, France, Les Suites is an intimate, über-modern retreat in an area filled with classic mountain lodges. Done up in chocolate-colored wood with dark cherry accents, the 15-suite hotel fills with Moncler-wearing fashionistas: it's the type of place where après-ski, boldfaced names hold court with glasses of champagne and scallop carpaccio in the dim La Suite bar. The nearby Alpine slopes are some of the world's best: Head out to first thing in the morning, after breakfast pastries and steaming coffee are delivered straight to your door.
The hotel has two two private luxury cars for tours of nearby alpine villages. Book a half- or full-day excursion with the concierge.
Don't miss Friday nights at the Le Suite bar, when the hotel hosts a weekly themed party.
Arrive at Aéroport Lyon Saint-Exupéry (LYS) which is approximately 120 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 2 hours and 30 minutes of travel time.Rue du Plantret 1850, Courchevel 1850, Savoie, France

Why We Love Courchevel
Courchevel has long been a playground for the posh. The French Alpine escape is the gateway to 370 miles of slopes and 119 runs at the Trois Vallées ski area. And the off-mountain activities—luxury shopping, dining, and more—are equally as alluring as the powder runs.
Tours from $165.
Where to Shop: Courchevel Resort, often called the wintertime Saint-Tropez, has plenty of brand-name boutiques and art galleries. Some of the best shopping areas are La Croix for ski gear, and Jasmine Fleurs for home goods.
Where to Eat: Courchevel is home to seven Michelin-starred restaurants. Try La Bateau Ivre, a five-minute walk uphill from Les Suites, for classic French fare by chef Jean Pierre Jacob.
Dinner for two $235.
Where to Drink: After 10 p.m., see-and-be-seen at Courchevel's lounge Oxygen, where live DJs set the mood for champagne and potent mojitos.
Rue des Verdons and Place du Rocher.
Drinks for two $40.
