During World War II, the Vichy regime in France planned the construction of a luxury resort. This idea became manifest in the Saint-Bon-Tarentaise commune as Courchevel, a French Alps ski resort which consists of four separate resort villages: Courchevel 1300, Courchevel 1550, Courchevel 1650, and the amazing Courchevel 1850. The villages’ specific names refer to their metric altitudes. Collectively, Courchevel is part of Les Trois Vallees, the world's largest linked ski area. All of the villages are connected by bus, and all have a unique charm. However, Courchevel 1850 is particularly special, as it was the first community to be constructed entirely from scratch. Of the four villages, Courchevel 1850 is also the largest, the main lift hub, and the most luxurious, as it houses many stunning chalets and hotels, including the magnificent Hamlet of K2.
