Pomme de Pin (PdP) becomes Hotel La Pomme – Not another 1850 rip off is it?

Hotel Pomme de Pin was one of the few value for money places in Courchevel 1850 with Pizza from €11, Stella from €5.50 a pint and a great full on buffet meal deal too. Even the Veuve Cliquot Champagne at €50 a bottle (€55 for Rosé) was an unbelievable bargain for an on piste restaurant in Courchevel 1850.

The Aussie owners previously ran the Hotel Courcheneige with similar prices and both became popular with Seasonaires and those in the know.

With the brand new competition Stade and race HQ (helped with €17m of funding from Britain’s richest man, Monaco based, Jim Ratcliffe, CEO of the INEOS Petrochemicals group ) right in front of the terrace it looks like the owners or management have decided to bail out and things are set to change.

Rebranded to Hotel La Pomme with Chef Mathieu Hericotte running the restaurant the hotel announced in September that it is now under the management of Maison Tournier group.

Maison Tournier run the 5 star hotels Saint Roch & Saint Joseph in Courchevel and Saint Amour La Tartanne in Saint Tropez as well as restaurant in Courchevel including the Cap Horn, La Casserole, San Marco, L’Èquipe, La Cantine and L’Aventure – get the picture? Let’s hope for not too many changes…
