Cheval Blanc’s sweetest secret: honey from Jardin Alpin

PUBLISHED May 12, 2020 | updated September 14, 2020 07:06

Over the past year, one beekeeper in the heart of the Jardin Alpin has brought honeybees into the center of the brand’s food scene.

The buzz around Courchevel - one end of the world's largest lift-linked ski area, the Trois Vallées, is not just from the skiers. During winter, a swarm of bees takes refuge at a residence near the Maison to concoct an exquisite sweet nectar that promises to delight the taste buds of both young and old. They poetically gather pollen from the myriad of flowers in the valley, the residents of these hives enchant the season with delicious honey, a royal treat perfect for a gourmet breakfast, an invigorating afternoon break or to highlight the culinary creations of the restaurants Le Triptyque and Le 1947 at Cheval Blanc.  

Cheval Blanc originated from the desire to offer a singular, personalized and resolutely modern vision of luxury hotels. At Cheval Blanc, guests discover a new Art of Emotion reinterpreted by their Ambassadors in respect of its values: Craftsmanship, Creativity, Exclusive Privacy and the Art of Entertaining.

Cheval Blanc Courchevel thus opened in 2006 in the heart of the French Alps. Since then, the collection has expanded in the Maldives with Cheval Blanc Randheli, in the Caribbean with Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France and in the south of France with Cheval Blanc St-Tropez.

The next opening is scheduled for Paris in 2020 and the group's expansion continues in France and abroad, with projects in London and Los Angeles in particular.

There are 850 ambassadors to date (1200 Ambassadors in 2020), all striving to enhance the brand’s DNA at every moment through their personality, creativity and excellence.
