Excellent flat - very well equipped and ski in & out. Short walk to supermarket etc. 1650 a good base for exploring 3 valleys
We've stayed in this apartment as a base for skiing 3 times. Many good things about it. It's comfortable, good value, close enough to the the centre of 1650 for bars, restaurants and the well stocked mini carrefour (fresh bagettes every morning). It's also ski in/ ski out thanks to the new mini cable car (feels like your own personal cable car in fact) and the view down the valley from the dining table is great, particularly at breakfast time with a cup of coffee! Skiing in this areas is excellent and extensive if you take a 3 valleys pass, and 1650 is almost is own mini ski area at is right at the end of the 3 valleys, so not very busy but with some excellent intermediate runs. It's not super smart, but comfortable with a homey feel, very good base for skiing.
This had been our 2nd stay for the winter half term and I give it top marks in comparison to what's normally available on the market. Firstly parking ain't an issue and is free. Ski in/out is a big plus and the ski area is the best the Alps can offer. The apartment is homely, spacious and clean. The owners make basics available - toilet paper, cooking herbs,booze, towels, linen, dish washing tablets etc. It is a lived in place and makes a big difference to the empty apartments I have rented in the past. I will certainly be coming back and recommend it to any one wanting a decent comfortable skiing holiday in Courchevel without blowing a fortune.

The apartment in Couchevel 1650 is situated close to all amenities, we used the nearest supermarket that proved to be the best one in the town. Ski in and out made life really easy, saves walking with heavy boots etc. We also used the free bus service if we were coming back from 1850 or 1550 when it was too late to catch the lifts at tea time. The bus stop is very near the apartment. Funky Fox pub down the road provided friendly place to have a drink in the evening.
Convenient access to the slopes. The flat is kitted out with everything that one would need....even a Raclette machine.
Warm homely feel, balcony views were magical.
