It’s a myth to think that visiting Courchevel has to cost a fortune. Many people who visit Courchevel can get good deals on catered accommodation in Courchevel 1650, 1550, La Praz and La Tania. Holidaying with the catered option means that lunch and on-hill refreshments can be one of the big additional costs if you walk into the wrong restaurant! Below are some of our recommendations on where to get a good deal on your lunch/drinks in Courchevel 1850.
First of all, all mountain restaurants in Courchevel are expensive bar one, The Courcheneige this is the best place to get a cheap lunch. This is a hotel located on the Bellecote piste which is accessible from the Jardin Alpin lift and on a Green piste so assessable to all. The hotel has a sun terrace with many tables as well as indoor seating during bad weather. The restaurant is good value but the real bargain at the Courcheneige is the snack window just beyond the main hotel terrace. Here you can get a great deal for 10€ or 12€. 10€ will get you a sandwich or panini, drink and fries. Where as 12€ will get you lasagna or Tartiflette, drink and fries. Also you can by a sandwich on its own for 3,70€.[vc_single_image image=”23897″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]The other lunch ‘hub’ for cheap lunch in Courchevel 1850 is Le Forum, basically a shopping centre. The upper entrance to Le Forum is easily accessible from the main Croisette in 1850 (the bottom of the main lifts). Just a 20m stroll from the snow is the upper entrance which is our main meeting point for Snowboard Lessons in Courchevel.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”23896″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”Large”][vc_column_text]Just inside this entrance to Le Forum is a little Sandwich bar serving a small selection of sandwiches, mini pizzas, crock monsieurs, quiche and good coffee. The sandwich selection is relatively limited to Ham, Ham and Cheese, Tuna or Chicken. They also do a Ham and raclette sandwich too on request. These sandwiches will set you back around 6 to 7€ each. The do also sell freshly squeezed orange juice made in the machine behind the counter but beware, a bottle of freshly squeezed orange juice will cost you 7€![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”23899″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]Just down the escalator in Le Forum lies three most establishments for eating. On your you have the Sherpa supermarket which is now open during lunch time. Previously it would close at 12:30 then reopen around 2pm. Now open throughout the lunch period means you can really eat lunch for cheap. Buy a fresh baguette and a pack of ham and you’re away! Also half litre bottles of water are 0.80€. This is probably the cheapest way to eat/drink in Courchevel 1850.
Right next to the Sherpa supermarket is the Au Pain d’Antan, essentially a bakery with tables and chairs, ideal for when the weather outside isn’t great and you want to be indoors. They have a wide selection of panini’s, sandwiches, croissants, cakes and chocolates and reasonable prices.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”23900″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_single_image image=”23895″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]The third place to eat on that floor is La Luge. It’s tucked in the back left corner and is attached to a Snowboard shop so at first its a little hard to distinguish. Here you can get a sit-down meal with table service and a reasonable price. The basically serve burgers, wraps and the like. The portions are good and the service is pretty good too. My personally favourite is the Avocado Wrap. Also if you can blag yourself to be a seasonaire then you can get the ‘Formula Salad’ for 15€ which includes a wrap, drink and coffee. Or for 17€ you can get a burger, drink and coffee. The wraps and burgers are all served with fries and salad.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”23898″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”]
