Courchevel 1550. The Trois S is in a perfect location to access the skiing and makes this the ideal choice for the ski-in/out enthusiast. It is situated right next to the Proveres piste leading into Courchevel 1550 and at the finish of the toboggan run from 1850. In the morning it is a short ski to the Grangettes Telecabine that takes you directly up to 1850. It would be hard to find a better location in the resort. Whilst Courchevel 1550 is reasonably quiet in the evening there are still some good bars and restaurants within easy walking distance of the chalet.
Chalet Trois S is the perfect choice for groups looking for a convenient ski-in/out location, a sociable living space and great value for money. There is no denying that this chalet is simply furnished with a hint of the 1960s, but on the plus side it boasts an extremely spacious open-plan lounge/dining room with an open fireplace and stunning views over the Vallée de Bozel. Whilst the bedrooms are basic with interesting external access to the first floor, this chalet offers extremely good value for money for a ski-in/out location with direct access to 1850.
