Opened in the heart of the Trois Vallées region as an Aman resort in 1992, Le Mélézin combines a ski experience with the classic traditions of the finest French Chateaux. After extensive renovation, Aman Le Mélézin reopens in new style in December 2016.
The ski village of Courchevel 1850 is situated in the heart of the Trois Vallées, the world’s largest ski area, popular for its well-groomed slopes, extensive infrastructure and consistently good skiing conditions. Geneva and Lyon-Saint Exupéry are the closest international airports. Limousine and helicopter transfers are available from Geneva, Lyon or Chambéry. The Heliport is a few minutes from Le Mélézin. Le Mélézin arranges flights to various airports and guests may also drive direct to Courchevel. From Geneva, 140km north of Courchevel, or Lyon, 200km to the west, it is a two-and-a-half-hour drive while Paris is seven hours away by road. By fast TGV train, Paris to Moûtiers-Salins takes just over four hours, followed by a 40-minute drive to Courchevel by taxi or private car.
Le Mélézin’s 31 guest rooms and suites use red-cedar planks. The floors are covered in wool or silk carpeting, with walls finished either in cedar or in a light chenille fabric. Many rooms feature unobstructed views of the ski slopes and surrounding peaks and 24 come with balconies. All rooms have a large, separate dressing area and are equipped with IDD phone, television with CD and DVD player, refrigerator and a safety deposit box. The bathrooms are finished in rose-tinted granite and offer twin washbasins, a deep bathtub and a separate shower.
Situated in a staggeringly scenic location, in a naturally sculpted mountainous amphitheatre, on the Bellecôte slope, in the heart of the Trois Vallées, Le Mélézin offers unrivalled skiing variety, directly from, and back to, its welcoming front door, delivering some of the most consistently excellent skiing conditions world-wide. The resort’s spacious Hammam (steam room), with its Capri stone walls and vaulted ceiling, is a convivial après-ski attraction as are the spa treatment rooms. The Dining Room offers traditional French cuisine adapted to the lighter demands of the modern diner. The Bar is decorated in oak panelling and has a classically patterned parquet floor. Weather permitting, the outdoor Terrace serves lunch, refreshments and afternoon tea.
