Situated in prime position at the foot of the slopes of Courchevel Moriond (1650), Portetta Hotel and Lofts is the perfect base for the ultimate ski experience. Portetta is a family friendly, ski-in ski-out hotel with thirty-eight luxuriously cosy rooms, as well as six fully equipped duplex lofts on the top of two floors.

A large open plan lounge is full of sink-in sofas, a huge 4-sided open fireplace, rustic wooden panelling and is just the welcome home you need after a long day on the slopes. A massive bar runs the length of the room and serves everything from classic cocktails and magnums of chilled rose to shots of Génépi – a traditional Alpine herbal aperitif.

The perfect place to relax, eat well and live well

Eating…

Our friend, Chef Angela Hartnett has taken to the slopes of Courchevel with Cucina Angelina, the Italian-influenced restaurant at Portetta, and you can tuck into some seriously delicious Italian dishes in this mountain hotspot! It is the perfect place to enjoy good food, good company and good wine and is the ideal après-ski retreat.

For somewhere to enjoy a tipple or something to eat, chill and soak in the mountain air on the largest terrace in Courchevel Moriond. The outdoor terrace bar Fire & Ice is right at the bottom of the main piste and has a huge log burning fire, flaming torches, wood fired pizza oven, ice shots, fur snugs and heated bar seating.
