As the Russian elite has pulled in Courchevel

January 22 2006

What's that, let alone the Russian elite was able to rest forever. In recent years, a favorite vacation spot of cream of our society has become a famous French resort of Courchevel. To be noted there at least once a year is considered to be commonplace. For several years, Russian made a quiet French village into a place for their private parties.

Last year, many said, that the invasion of Courchevel boom of Russian tourists has passed. They say they tired of it, the usual winter summer camp. Where there is! This past Christmas and New Year holidays Courchevel 98 percent of the apartments were occupied by Russian. Afford there the rest may be the only people more than wealthy. On the day of Russian guests in Courchevel to spend 10,000 euros. Night in a prestigious hotel will cost an average of 5 million euros and above. But bargain hunters save Courchevel are not used, therefore, among other things, they are hired for each family member an instructor for 320-500 euros per day.

In the musical repertoire of the local nightclubs have long been the "Black Boomer" and Katya Lel. Since the resort is still skiing, regardless of age, the thickness of the wallet and his post in the morning all stand up on skis. This year, the Courchevel ski trails obkatyvali even Roman Abramovich. Famous for its excellent physical shape, the governor of Chukotka neglected lift and climb the mountain alone. He tried out brand new Hunde - skiing, lined with fur. Security staff could barely keep up with the high-spirited governor.

Among the guests was seen Boris Yeltsin Jr., with his girlfriend, the granddaughter of Rasul Gamzatov Shahri. But since the rich Russian at an elite resort this year granted an unprecedented number, the grandson of former president did not even have room for a table at a party at a club. Boria ordered a table in advance, but only slightly late, but when I finally complained to his place already seated other guests.

Noted in Courchevel and policies. On the piste flashed Alexander Pochinok and Khloponin. But the governor of Tver Region Dmitry Zelenin lost his skis. He is only a minute left them unattended, and when I returned to the place they have already been discovered. Zelenin rushed down the slope and spread his hands helplessly: "It would seem that all of their ..."

Among the guests were also seen Igor Wernick and his wife and son, a daughter of Boris Berezovsky - Katja Berezovskaya which, incidentally, was recently asked to release the estate near Moscow gosdachu in Petrovo Far. Were Valeriy Meladze, Alain Sviridov, the couple Dyachenko-Yumashev Artemy Troitsky, Ekaterina Rednikova.

Ability to Russian chic living does not get used, even by the hotel. Recently, there has occurred an amusing incident. After resting for a week, from luxury apartments left a Russian gentleman. After this, the porter found in the room two new plasma TVs: one - in the bedroom, the other - in the toilet. Helpful hotel employee ran after scattered by the Guest, but has not received any thanks, nor chayavyh. The Russian gentleman only contempt from him dismissed. Well, they say, bought at a local store two games, so as not to miss in the pauses between skiing and recreation clubs, so what, they drag with them now. That is so.
