Design And Glam
A Warm Welcome
The White 1921 is the new design hotel with the all white facade that makes the difference in the small village of Courchevel 1850, and sets the tone: a mix of design, glam and cool (yes). When I arrive, Agnes Bouanani, the friendly General Manager of the hotel, offers me a tea in the “small lounge” (on the photo montage below) while my room is prepared.
The 26-room hotel was completely redone by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the famous French architect and designer. I really like the fairly intimate, simple and graphic (without excess) interior design, creating a pleasant and comfortable bubble difficult to leave so it feels good.
Agnes is a great traveler graduated from the CFA Mederic, the hotel school in Paris (black and white portrait below). Concerned about the smallest detail, she also chose the restautant where I dine this evening, as the hotel has none. There is only a breakfast room.
Looking out the window, I ask Agnes how Courchevel is in summertime : “I love summer in Courchevel, I make amazing rides. It’s quiet… Like being in an eagle’s nest“. I’m already late, I go take a swimsuit while Nathalie waits for me to go to the Aquamotion for lunch (lol) … Thank you Agnes!
