Maisons Pariente’s Hotel Le Coucou Launches in Méribel, France
Maisons Pariente, a new luxury collection of boutique, five-star hotels across France opened its third property for this year, Le Coucou in Méribel. The elegant five-star hotel officially opened on 12th December 2019 and offers guests 55 spacious suites and rooms and two private chalets. Le Coucou is home to two restaurants, including one Beefbar and one Italian, Bianca Neve by Riccardo Giraudi, a Tata Harper Spa, two swimming pools, one indoor and one outdoor and two kids clubs. The latest addition to the Maisons Pariente portfolio boasts a fantastic ski-in/ski-out location perched on the heights of Belvedere, close to Le Rond-Point des Pistes, offering panoramic views across the slopes of Méribel.
Le Coucou has been created exclusively by architect Pierre Yovanovitch, who has proudly injected a modern, yet quirky twist on a classic Alpine design to the 39 suites and 16 rooms including bespoke furniture designed by Yavanovitch. Guests will enjoy inviting warm colours and contemporary artwork throughout the hotel encouraging them to relax and recharge in exceptional settings with superb service from the moment they arrive.
Two, four-bedroom ski-in ski-out luxury chalets are now available for families as a perfect home away from home, while reaping the benefits of all the five-star services Le Coucou has on offer. Fully equipped with four en-suite bedrooms, spacious living area and a games area, each chalet offers the ideal cosy and comfortable retreat for a mountain holiday. Each chalet’s private ski room, pool and spa will welcome skiers each evening to ensure they are fully rested for another memorable day on piste.
Hotel Le Coucou is delighted to offer guests a series of pampering and revitalising organic treatments at the new Tata Harper Spa, which has six treatment cabins including a spacious spa suite. The American skincare range combines a flawless natural formulation with active ingredients for a range of treatments from deep tissue massages, to body rituals, facials and full spa packages. The Lomi Lomi Massage is a signature massage which releases tension and boosts energy levels; an ideal treatment to soothe tired muscles following a day on the slopes. In addition to a stunning new spa, Le Coucou’s two new swimming pools are sure to tempt guests to take a dip in the heated indoor and outdoor pool separated by a glass window. For the more energetic guest, the fitness area offers panoramic views across the peaks with state-of-the-art fitness equipment alongside a dedicated area for personalised pilates and yoga classes. Personal trainers are available on request for all levels of fitness.
Le Coucou is set to bring a fresh taste to Méribel’s gourmet scene as the hotel’s two restaurants cater to relaxed lunches for couples and families, drinks at the bar après ski or a romantic dinner for two. An innovative concept created by Riccardo Giraudi for Le Coucou, restaurant Bianca Neve is entirely dedicated to Italian cuisine with an impressive wine collection to match. Following a delicious meal, guests will have the chance to relive the day’s most memorable runs, over a night cap in the Cigar Lounge.
Méribel caters for all ages and ski abilities and has so much more than just skiing and snowboarding to offer its visitors. Guests at Le Coucou can count on the concierge team to ensure everybody has an unforgettable stay in the mountains. From hiking in the forest on snowshoe or on snowmobile, dog or pony sledging down the slopes, magical hot-air balloon rides and paragliding amongst the clouds or snowga on the slopes, the possibilities are endless.
Hotel Le Coucou marks the third opening for Maisons Pariente in 2019, following closely behind the opening of Hotel Lou Pinet, Saint Tropez in June 2019 and the reopening of the refurbished Hotel Crillon le Brave in Provence on 1st May 2019. The Pariente family have their sights set on Paris, in le Marais, for a fourth addition to the collection in 2021.
