Portetta, Courchevel | by the Lime Wood Group


Situated in prime position at the foot of the slopes of Courchevel Moriond (1650), Portetta Hotel, Portetta Lofts and the Portetta Mountain Lodges are the perfect base for the ultimate ski experience, and form part of the Lime Wood Group; a personal collection of fine small luxury lifestyle hotels, restaurants, and lodges where the focus is on authenticity and informality of design, food and service.

Re-designed, rebuilt and fully refurbished, Portetta is the ideal mountain retreat. Accredited with a French 4 Star rating, this family friendly, ski-in ski-out hotel offers thirty-eight luxuriously cosy rooms all overlooking either the piste or the mountain, as well as six stylish fully equipped duplex lofts on the top two floors which have balconies, open log fires and stunning views over Courchevel Moriond and beyond. portetta-lime-wood-group-humphrey-munson-blog-7 Situated on the top two floors of Hotel Le Portetta, with a stunning view over Courchevel 1650, the lofts are stylish, fully equipped self catering apartments that offer that extra element of luxury combined with added privacy. These French Alps lofts are equally suitable for groups of friends as well as families, and you have full access to all of the hotel’s facilities. portetta-lime-wood-group-humphrey-munson-blog-16 portetta-lime-wood-group-humphrey-munson-blog-17 The interiors are beautifully appointed – to see the full brochure take a look here.
So the thing with skiing, as we all know, is that it’s very tiring and you really need good hearty meals to keep your energy levels nice and high. Eating well at Portetta is courtesy of Cucina Angelina which provides a combination of classic and modern French cuisine using the freshest locally grown ingredients.

Menus change seasonally and daily, and are complimented by a carefully selected wine list. Whether you are staying at the Courchevel resort’s hotel, lofts or lodges, the restaurants and bar are at your disposal. Additionally there is also an arrangement where they can provide a Chef for catered dinners in the lofts and we have full services for the lodges.


Also at Portetta is a beautiful in-house luxury spa which uses the same lovely Bamford products as Lime Wood. The expert team focuses on authentic, holistic treatments that take inspiration from centuries of well-being tradition so that you feel better for longer. If your legs still feel energetic after a long day on the mountain(!) there is also a well-equipped gym.


Or you can just have a good sit down and enjoy a lovely glass of red while absorbing the mountain air on the largest terrace in Courchevel featuring huge log burning fires, flaming torches, wood fired pizza oven, fur snugs and heated bar seating.
