The Guide

Food and drink in the Three Valleys

It’s as important to know where to eat and drink on a skiing holiday as it it to know where to ski!  We have chosen some of our favourite restaurants and bars in the 3 Valleys and asked the best gourmets around to give us their hints and tips. From multiple-Michelin starred extravaganzas to cheap, cheerful and cheese filled sandwiches, eating in the 3 valleys can be whatever you want it to be.  Read on for a selection of our favourite hotspots for basking, baking and baguettes.

Local specialities (CHEESE!)

For a true heart-stopper, try the great value baguette selection at Chez les Gaulois in Courchevel Moriond, next to The Boot Lab.  A variety of local specialities are thinly sliced in between a fresh French flute, which is then liberally doused in melted raclette cheese.  Heavy – but heavenly! For an extra touch of class, ask for a final topping of local truffle oil.

Michelin Starred Restaurants

The 3 Valleys is blessed with many fine dining establishments. Courchevel has more Michelin stars than any other ski resort, with a total of 7 Michelin starred restaurants. Check out our favourite L’Oxalys, Val Thorens

This two Michelin starred restaurant is ideal for a cosy lunch setting on a snowy day or for alfresco dining with a stunning view. Less showy than the much-discussed three star la Bouitte, it serves fabulous food at an affordable price given the quality. Still family-fun it also offers great and friendly service.

Apres Ski

The row of bars lining Rue du Marquis should be your first port of call after a hard day’s skiing.  Le Bubble is always warm and friendly, and offers keenly priced drinks – also a great option for the 6 nations!  Just next door is La Boulotte – run by locals and the scene of several outrageous table-dancing-anthem-singing incidents in recent years.  As the night moves on, if things are getting a little calmer, it might be time to stumble across the road to La Copina to peruse their cocktail menu – often to the accompaniment of some chilled out live music.  If things are heating up though, it’s definitely time for the Funky Fox at the far end of Rue de l’Aiguille du Fruit, where you’re bound to find plenty of others in a similar mood!

If you’re looking for a party extravaganza on the piste, drop down to the Folie Douce underneath the mid station of Saulire Express for all your dancing on the table and champagne shower needs. Once you’ve finished partying there take a quick ski down to the Rond Point to continue your apres ski.
