Location - where is Chalet Founets Amont

Founets Amont is located just over the road from the Bellecote piste and in the most sought after area of Courchevel 1850. From here you can slide a few hundred yards down a gentle green to La Croisette, the main lift hub of the resort. For absolute beginners, or for those just looking to do some window shopping at Prada, Armani and Louis Vuitton, we operate a morning ski school drop off on request for complete beginners, and a daily shuttle service between 1850 and our chalets in the afternoon from 4.30 - 7.30pm. Ski hire at Founets Amont is provided by White Storm who offer an in chalet fit service.


Overview - chalet description - Chalet Founets Amont description

Chalet Founets Amont was conceived, built and is still owned by a Parisian architect who was behind most of the properties in the exclusive Bellecote area of Courchevel, second home to the global elite. The house is littered with artefacts, exposed beams and traditional Savoyard character but also with a welcome dose of light and space

The fabulous galleried living area boasts a sensational fireplace with huge windows and a terrace that provides a spectacular vista of Le Signal and the surrounding mountain peaks.

The living room resembles a gentleman's club with inviting armchairs to ease tired limbs and a cosy snug on the gallery where you can tuck yourselves away in front of a film after supper.

The bedrooms are of a good size with high ceilings, large windows, plenty of light, an assortment of balconies and some pretty amazing views. The chalet can sleep up to eleven guests in five bedrooms.

The 'pièce de résistance' is probably the large indulgent steam room more reminiscent of a Turkish baths.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Founets Amont

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our catered ski holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Chalet Founets Amont's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

Après ski in 1850 is the height of sophistication. Enjoy a cosy fireside cocktail in La Mangeoire piano bar or La Suite Bar & Louge; sample fine wine and champagne in Le P'tit Drink or go clubbing in Les Caves de Courchevel.
