By the Sea…
While it’s known as the best ski resort in Europe, the area has a few non-ski surprises in store. You can enjoy fine dining right beside the sea…of ice! An enchanting high altitude gastronomic delight awaits you at 1913m above sea level at the Grand Hotel du Montenvers. After a 20 minute railway journey through the Alps you will arrive at a traditional hotel dating back to 1880. You may even be able to sense the souls of the intrepid mountaineers who first conquered these peaks as you sip an aperitif on the terrace. The restaurant serves traditional fare where you will be able to contemplate stunning vistas of the Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice) as you dine in classic French style.
Bergerie de Planpraz
For an intimate dining experience board a cable car by night (minus the skis) and watch the glow of the urban lights fade into the distance as you travel to an altitude of 2000m. The Bergerie de Planpraz nestles on the south side of the valley ready to welcome you into a warm, cosy alpine ambience of stone and wood. Relax with a glass of red wine and enjoy a spectacular sunset as the chef prepares cuisine using the freshest local produce.
Parets and Yurts
For an out-of-this-world experience in Europe's best ski resort it would be a shame not to take to the snow. Take the last Lognan-Les-Grands Montets cable car to 1900m and ride on a paret to base camp 700m further down. The paret is a traditional wooden sledge with only one runner. Have a laugh with your colleagues about your experience over a fireside aperitif before you settle down to dinner in a genuine Mongolian yurt.
Discover the magic of a snow-capped alpine adventure as you guide a team of huskies through thick pine forest and landscapes evocative of northern Canada. Pet your furry companions before enjoying a well-deserved glass of warming mulled wine and a hearty Savoyard dinner in a traditional alpine restaurant.
