Courchevel is the furthest east of the 3 Valleys. Together with Meribel and Val Thorens/Les Menuires it makes up the world's biggest ski area. It is made up of five seperate villages - 1300 (Le Praz, the original Village), 1550, 1650 and 1850 and La Tania. The higher up you go the more expensive it gets and the top end hotels in 1850 boast clientele such as the Beckhams! La Tania is slightly west of the main resorts and was purpose built for the 1992 Olympics. For the most expensive nightlife head to 1850!
Lyon Airport is situated 15kms east of the city. There are numerous arrival and departure gates in the airport but the majority of UK flights, including all of Easyjet's, arrive at gate 10 (terminal 3). Whilst Lyon Airport is considerably further away than Geneva or Chambery the route is almost entirely on motorway making for fast transfer times. Having said that the motorway can get vey busy during French holidays with delays of 1-2 hours.
