Stroll through the villages, enjoy the gentle mountain life and learn about the local traditions.
Le Croisette is the resort's beating heart on which Laurent Chappis based his urban planning project in 1946.
Chapelle Notre Dame des Neiges
The chapel was built in 1650 at the request of Saint-Bon's priest : Pierre Pachod. Most of the sanctuaries consecrated to Notre-Dame des Neiges are at altitude (this one is at 1570m) to provide shelter from avalanches.
Chapelle Sainte Marie-Madeleine
Sainte- Marie-Madeleine Chapel, dating to the 15th century, was expanded in 1697. It's the largest rural chapel in the valley, with an altar featuring a 17th century Cordovan leather antependium.
Church of St. Bon
This massive church was extended in the 17th century based on the Romanesque design of the previous building: its chancel was given a flat floor and the bell tower was enclosed in another, larger one. The interior decoration has some beautiful Baroque surprises in store.
Chapelle Sainte Blandine
Courchevel Moriond has a second chapel devoted to sainte Blandine. The first version, built in a "regionalist" style, was consacred in 1953. It was completely rebuilt in 1973, in a contemporary style.
