02 Feb An Update from the Courchevel Team
Courchevel was as always, a thing of beauty this Christmas season. Window displays at top brand clothing labels, such as Chanel, Bogner and Prada, pulled out all the stops to show off the latest and must-have trends this season. Fairy lights lit spruce trees through snowy streets, and the Kaluma team were ready with the fire crackling in the grate and the Christmas tree beautifully decorated.
Soon enough, the celebrations for the arrival of 2015 were upon us. While the younger guests staying with Kaluma braved the cold and made the run down to the annual ‘Party on the Piste’, the adults enjoyed canapes and sipped glasses of bubbly in Chalet Maisonnée whilst viewing the fireworks display from the terrace.
Gorgeous food has been served by chefs Dan and Chris, with the help of their much loved friend, the Big Green Egg. A Savoie favourite with all guests so far has been a starter of Mont Dor cheese (fondue in a wooden box) smoked with hickory chips and rosemary, and a main course of vandouvan marinated lamb legs. A possible new experiment for the Big Green Egg is a classic french way of cooking mussels over fire. Eclade de moules involves layers of pine needles surrounding the mussels, then setting the needles on fire to smoke the mussels open. Watch this space seafood lovers!
With the festive season out of the way the main focus has now come down to one thing. The skiing! Fantastic conditions are upon the Three Valleys and the renowned “blue bird days” are rolling in! Keen skiers should not miss out on these fantastic conditions, and ending the day with the excellent hospitality provided by Kaluma’s Courchevel team.
The soon to arrive half term holidays mean Kaluma’s chalet is becoming quickly booked out. Families coming to stay in the chalets Maisionee A and Maisonnée B are always grateful for the extra help, especially when accompanied with younger ones. Families visiting this season with their children have said; “You couldn’t have been kinder and more friendly and we appreciated every little bit!”-Lise from England. And; “The service was fantastic and it was the highlight of our trip to europe!”-John, Taiwan.
