Location - where is Darkoum Makan

Darkoum Makan is beautifully positioned in a peaceful and extremely exclusive neighbourhood of Courchevel 1850, enjoying spectacular views of the Bozel valley and less than 100 metres from the Bellecote piste (Green) which winds gently into Courchevel centre and the main Croisette lifts. We operate a driver shuttle service between 4.30 and 7.30pm for those wishing to enjoy some apres ski or shopping in 1850. If you prefer to take a stroll it is a 15 minute walk to the village centre. Ski hire at Darkoum Makan is provided by White Storm who offer an in chalet fit service.


Overview - chalet description - Darkoum Makan description

Following our somewhat belated arrival in Courchevel 1850 last year, [sorry, you had been asking us for years ...] we are delighted to have added another three delightful chalet apartments to our portfolio for this season. Darkoum is a four storey, freestanding chalet containing just three wonderful apartments (Darkoum Kalo, Lama and Makan). We've become attached to our adopted exclusive suburb of 1850 and these three properties are in the same killer location, just across the road from the gentle Bellecote piste into the resort centre, making it virtually ski-in ski-out and perfect for families.

Darkoum Makan is the smallest of our three Darkoum apartments, nestled in the eaves on the top floor of the property and accommodates up to 6 guests.

Ok, so it doesn't have a fireplace, but small bijou chalets for four are gold dust, not least in the fabulous ski resort of Courchevel 1850. This little gem is completely independent, nestled in the eaves of Darkoum and has a dedicated chalet host. It has an open-plan living/dining room with flat screen TV, Blu-ray DVD player, Apple TV and a Bluetooth soundbar.

There are three bedrooms, each can be arranged as a double or twin, one with an en-suite bathroom and two (one with en suite shower) that share a family bathroom and WC.

This chalet has bags of character and is perfect for a family, we recommend Darkoum Makan for four people because of the cosy lounge but it can accommodate up to six guests. It may not be the right choice if you are tall as the living area and bedrooms have vaulted ceiling and therefore limited headroom in places.

Meals - food and drink in Darkoum Makan

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 Darkoum Makan'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.

This package holiday to Darkoum Makan in Courchevel, France departs Wednesday 3rd January 2018, for a 4 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged.

Down in 1650, you can fully appreciate the stunning surroundings at The Signal bar. Les Schuss is good for a quiet drink in a traditional Savoyarde setting and if you're looking for live music and a vibrant atmosphere, try Roc...
