Further Shortlist Success for L’Apogée Courchevel in the IH&P Awards 2014

design et al are delighted to announce that The Oetker Collection‘s L’Apogée Courchevel has acheived further shortlist success in the International Hotel & Property Awards 2014, now shortlisted in both the Ski Hotel and Hotel Design Award – Europe categories.

The hotel is located at the top of Courchevel 1850 and will offer the most desirable skiing experience. The opening ceremony will take place on 11.12.13. Renowned architect and interior designers Joseph Dirand and India Mahdavi created every element of the interiors from the rooms to restaurants, the private chalet to the chair by the fireplace. They have produced a chic, contemporary design that is soft, comfortable and luxuriant.


India Mahdavi has worked around the world on residential, hospitality and scenography projects and has established a reputation for her fresh and colourful approach. Together with Joseph Dirand they merged to create a unique style for L’Apogée Courchevel, which relates more to the language of a château than a chalet. In design they found the perfect balance between contemporary and historical reference that is ‘authentic yet not nostalgic’.


Joseph Dirand is renowned for his hyper-sophisticated and architectural style. He found L’Apogée Courchevel a generous space and also felt clearly that it would be more of a home. This is transmitted in the design which is intimate and comfortable, with cosiness and warmth that corresponds with being in the mountains. Dirand says the most superb part of working with a group like The Oetker Collection is that ‘we take care of the design side, knowing that behind it there will be extraordinary service’.


The world’s most enthusiastic skiers and their families will have the finest ski holiday imaginable. The restaurant offers relaxed, high class cuisine and the bars are casual chic. Le Spa de L’Apogée is irresistible and children will adore their dedicated club. The forest location is pretty and views are simply stellar. Relax by the open fire or on the terrace in Le Comptoir de L’Apogée, come in from the slopes to the resident lounge and warm yourself with hot chocolate. L’Apogée Courchevel offers stylish good living at its effortless best.
