Thomson & Scott Skinny Prosecco Skis into Six Senses Residences Courchevel
Back in the day, the apres-ski crowd asked for nothing more than a cold lager with a chaser of over-sugared gluhwein. Parallel turn into today’s post-run party and it’s truffle pizza, juice bars and Thomson & Scott Skinny Prosecco.
Six Senses Residences, situated in the heart of 1850m level Courchevel, is a collection of 53 chalets designed with all the care that the latest chalets to be built here deserve. The resort was the first to be built in France after the Second World War, and chic chalets and glitzy hotels vied for the best ski-in/ski-out spots. The council has now decreed that no further developments will be permitted, making Six Senses Residences a particularly special development. And as the Six Senses Residences even has its own private runway, it’s become a jet-set favourite in its first season.
It’s the Six Senses group’s first residential brand in Europe, and quite some home from home. Architect Allan Foeillet has created a classic Alpine chic look, with triple-aspect balconies, private wine cellars and en-suite spas. A dedicated Six Senses Spa has just opened. The wine list in the wood-panelled, luxe Club Lounge is as meticulously researched as the décor, and Thomson & Scott pours alongside complimentary canapés.
Of course, ski insiders are always going to love Courchevel. It’s located within the famous Trois Vallées, one of the world’s largest lift-linked ski areas with 600km of pistes. The French love it for its restaurants, the Brits adore its party scene and a new crowd of healthy hedonists are already applauding the introduction of Skinny Prosecco.
