"A rustic chalet on the outskirts of Courchevel 1850, the Elan has the advantage of being close to a chairlift that whisks you above the resort ahead of the crowds in the village centre. The Elan provides fantastic value in the often expensive resort and the range of skiing available within easy reach makes this a great choice for beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers alike."
Chalet Elan - Courchevel 1850, France
Skiers seeking an individual chalet in the heart of Courchevel 1850 will be as delighted with Chalet Elan, tucked away in a quiet cul de sac, with superb ski access.
The Chalet Elan has an enviable location just 70m from a green run, so even beginners will be able to ski from the door within days. This green run leads to the Plantrey lift whisking skiers above the main lift system at La Croisette, thus avoiding the busy resort centre.
The chalet Elan benefits from an inviting large lounge and dining area with country character features such as the beamed ceiling, a striking log fireplace and slate floors.
The generously sized, comfortable bedrooms with warm wood panelling are spread over two floors, all with en suite facilities, the majority of which are being renovated over the summer for our guests.
The renowned après-ski of Courchevel 1850 is an easy 5-7 minutes’ stroll away in the resort centre and must certainly be experienced at least once during your stay!
The owners live on the upper two floors of the building, sharing the main entrance to the chalet with our guests.

Meals - Chalet Elan, Courchevel 1850
We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your own holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff during the pre-season training course are trained to the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s Level 2 in Food Safety*. For six days of the week our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a cooked breakfast including your choice of bacon, eggs, sausages and beans, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff’s one day off a week, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff’s one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.
Children’s High Tea
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children’s tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
Dinner in Chalets
A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host – or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets – and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
