A feeling of exclusivity prevails at Cheval Blanc. The hotel is situated in the mountain garden at the highest altitude of France’s Courchevel ski resort, anchored to the ground by the Dior and Louis Vuitton boutiques at its base. Fur, velvet, and leather furnishings add warmth to the sleek rooms, which put a new spin on traditional mountain life. The restaurant, Le 1947, also challenges convention with Chef Yannick Alléno’s nuanced interpretations of haute French cuisine.
