Maisons Pariente’s Hotel Le Coucou will be reopening its doors for the winter season on 19th December 2020 with upgrades including a revamp of the Biancaneve Restaurant along with refreshed menus, a new spa package and an enhanced Kid’s Club.
The 5-star hotel has been designed in its entirety by renowned interior architect, Pierre Yovanovitch boasting two private chalets, two restaurants, a bar, a Tata Harper Spa, two swimming pools, one indoor and one outdoor, a fitness room, sauna and two kid’s clubs.
The hotel is located in the prime position of Méribel, the central resort of the Three Valleys, the largest ski-area in the world. Positioned between Courchevel, a destination that entices the wealthy, and Val Thorens which hosts the highest resort in Europe, Méribel is ideally located to gain the most from the Three Valleys. Le Coucou is nestled in the exclusive area of Belvedere in a peaceful piste-side location and is ski-in/ski-out, which is the pinnacle of luxury in ski accommodation.
The Italian Biancaneve restaurant, created by Riccardo Giraudi, has been revamped for the new season by extending the windows to allow for panoramic views across the valley. Guests will see unique fabrics covering the top part of the walls and impressive tiling will glimmer behind the bar area. The restaurant will serve authentic Italian food including Mushroom Cannelloni with fontina cheese and truffle, Puntarelle salad with Straciatella cheese and anchovy dressing, Pizza Stracchino with stracchino cheese, rucola, prosciutto ham and truffle. The Beefbar, also created by Riccardo Giraudi, uses top quality ingredients sourced from highly distinguished providers offering the finest cuts of Black Angus Prime, Wagyu WX and Kobe beef alongside fresh grilled fish, ceviche and carpaccio. New additions to the menu include tartiflette with beef prosciutto, gratin dauphinois and a delicious beef stew.
The hotel’s indoor and outdoor pool, six massage treatment rooms with specialist treatments from Tata Harper and a sauna area offer guests a deeply relaxing experience after a day of skiing. The pool areas, divided by a bay window create a stunning, trompe-l’oeil effect with views of the striking vista outdoors. State-of-the-art fitness equipment, boxing facilities and a dedicated space for Pilates and yoga all offer panoramic views across the peaks.
