Les Sherpas is in the Jardin Alpin areal of Courchevel 1850 - close to the 2nd stop on the Jardin Alpin lift. It is a 7-8 minute walk to the piste, or you can get the hotel bus to take you down to La Croisette in the morning and pick you up in the evening.
The hotel itself is 4 stars, not as glitzy as some in the resort (to us this was a good thing!) and is very friendly and family oriented. The staff are all extremely helpful and friendly, there is a very nice kids' playroom and the spa (pool/sauna/steam room) were all very welcome at the end of a day on the slopes.
The absolute highlight has to be the restaurant. The restaurant manager was outstanding and nothing was too much effort. They are happy to serve children from 6.30pm and the children's menu was varied enough to accommodate picky eaters. We were on half board so were presented with the daily menu of soup, starter, main, cheese and dessert. The food was fantastic! The chefs were producing dishes which would compare favourably with many upmarket restaurants and beautifully presented. The desserts were always a delight. The cheese trolley was also well chosen with popular cheeses. Wine list had a reasonable selection of mid-priced bottles as well as top end producers.
Our room could have done with a little updating. Some have been refurbished in the hotel, though not the one we stayed in. However it was clean, comfortable and a good size with a large balcony. The internet connection in our room was a little intermittent though no worse than many other hotels we have stayed in.
