This already popular French ski resort sits within the heart of the world-renowned Three Valleys ski area and has plenty to offer. With the addition of a brand new aquatic centre this alpine resort is soon to become one of the most desirable destinations in the French mountains.
A total of €63m has been invested into the Courchevel swimming complex and was financed entirely by the municipality. This major new indoor water fun, sports and wellness centre will be opening its doors in December.
Designed to sit harmoniously within its Alpine setting.
The German architecture firm, Auer-Weber, have been entrusted with the construction of ‘Aquamotion’ (the aquatic centres official name). They are renowned for blending architectural structures with the natural landscape and the plans for this project look promising. The biggest challenge that the architect, Eric Frisch, faced was integrating such a large structure into the sensitive alpine setting. But you will see from the photos the shape of the roof matches the natural form of the landscape beautifully.
Spa facilities and more…
There are many exciting features to this new centre. These include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a diving area, a climbing wall and an indoor surf wave, which will become France’s first indoor wave of its size. Spa facilities will also be available, from massage treatments to a sauna and Jacuzzi. This centre isn’t just all about relaxing though. Thrill seekers can venture into the centre’s water fun area, which hosts a three-lane water slide and a 110-metre long area of wild water rapids. Aquamotion will also feature two heated lagoons, one for both outside and inside the complex.
