Hôtel Barrierè Les Neiges Opens in France

The Barrierè Group has just opened its very first hotel in the mountains of the Trois Valées ski area. Within the legendary Courchevel 1850 resort, guests can now find the intimate, five-star chalet Hôtel Barrierè Les Neiges

Offering 42 rooms and 46 suites, Les Neiges is bringing sophisticated elegance with high-class comfort to the Bellecôte slope.  Amenities of the property include a luxurious 2,583-square-foot Ski Room, a Petit VIP kids’ club and two on site restaurants, including a Fouquet’s brasserie offering views of the mountains.

An expansive spa as well as a 215-square-foot swimming pool, along with an outdoor Jacuzzi and a private projection room are just a few of the amenities designed to make Les Neiges ideal for the leisure traveler or athlete looking to unwind after a day on the slopes. Nestled in the heart of Courchevel 1850, the resort’s Ski Room allows beginners and experts alike easy access to the 600 kilometers of ski slopes in Les Trois Valées, the largest ski area in the world.

Nathalie Ryan designed the hotels interior, blending wood and stone with a variety of fabrics, all inspired by the snow found outdoors. Carpets inspired by ski tracks left in the snow, wood paneling channeling the slops, light fixtures mirroring ice crystals and doors created from tree bark are all examples of how Les Neiges aims at being one with its surroundings in Trois Valées. Ryan used much of her surroundings to influence the interior designs of the hotel.

Bedrooms are bathed in cashmere, felted fabrics, velvet and fur. Larch wood walls and ceilings rival those of traditional chalets, but with a modernized twist. On balconies, guests will find comfortable arm chairs furnished with wool blankets and fur throws to enjoy the outdoors in any weather.

Hôtel Barrierè Les Neiges is just one of the 18 hotel properties by The Barrierè Group, not including the groups 34 Casinos Barrierè properties or 120 restaurants and bars across the globe.
