Courchevel is one of the most romantic ski resorts in the world. It is also a resort that holds much prestige among both winter sport lovers and avid bargain hunters looking for a winter holiday deal. |
Christmas in Courchevel
Finding a good winter holiday deal feels great at any time of the season, but you’ll feel especially lucky when you do so around Christmas time. Christmas is much less commercial in France than it is in the UK, which makes it even more unique. You can be sure, however, that there will be carols, mulled wine and festive restaurant meals, should you wish to eat out on the big day.
The festivities start at the beginning of the month of December when the lights are switched on. Music, hot chocolate and mulled wine mark the occasion. From then on, throughout the month, concerts, markets and live music in town pave the way to the main Christmas and New Year celebrations.
If you want to experience Christmas in Courchevel with a difference, however, why not travel to resort on the 6th January 2016, when Courchevel turns Russian and celebrates Christmas just as it is celebrated in the country of the Tsars? Famous for its Russian visitors, Courchevel has embraced the culture and honours its guests with this special event.
Amongst a whole week of partying, the 6th of January will be one day dedicated to celebrating Christmas Russian style, with all kinds of festivities taking place. Look for winter holiday deals this week and you are in for a treat!
Starting with free mulled wine and hot chocolate, the evening will evolve to include songs by the traditionally dressed Elena Miralles’ Russian Choral Society, and a visit from a Russian Father Christmas. There will be a fabulous professional torchlight procession performed by 600 of the resort’s ski instructors, as well as a Russian themed outdoor dance party that will be accompanied by spectacular fireworks. This is a truly unique event from start to finish and the resort will be beautifully decorated and lit up to mark the celebrations.
The best thing about the event is that there is something for everyone. The fun starts at 5pm and goes on until the early hours of the morning, so everyone from the tiniest of tots to the toughest of teenagers can join in. Entrance is free and you only have to turn up to join in.
So, if you are looking for something extra special to add to your Christmas experience this year, try finding a last minute winter holiday deal for Courchevel in January!
