Apres Ski La Plagne
The Best Restaurants
Renowned chef Jean Michel Bouvier's La Mangeoir creates a local Savoyarde feel, from the stone and timber interior to the menu on which local dishes such as reblochon and tartiflette predominate.
Le Mangeoire, Plagne Bellecote, 73210 La Plagne.
Tel: 00 33 479 09 06 46
La Ferme du Forperet, Plagne Montalbert
This mountain restaurant has a unique selling point: each dish is based on cheese. They make their own cheese on site and use it in the house speciality fondue de mandrin along with cider and apples.
Le Forperet, Plagne Montalbert, 73210 Montalbert 1600
Tel: 00 33 479 55 51 27. Web: www.forperet.com
The Auberge de Montagne Chez Pat du Sauget
As well as being a quirky rest stop, this small gem is a fantastic restaurant. Patricia Rochet is a member of local pressure group "Flavours and Traditions of the Tarentaise" and this shows in the simple, gutsy regional dishes served here.
Auberge de Montagne Chez Pat du Sauget, Montchavin les Coches 73210 La Plagne.
Tel: 0033 479 07 83 51. Web: www.le-sauget.fr
Chalet des Verdons Sud
You'll need a reservation, as this is only open for private "soirees" each Thursday and you may well have to book as a group, taking over the whole place. It's a thirty-minute snowmobile ride to get there (arranged by the restaurant), but the ambience (you'll receive fur slippers on arrival) and local wine list make it well worth a mid-week treat.
Chalet des Verdons Sud, Les Verdons Sud, 73210 La Plagne.
Tel: 00 33 06 21 54 39 24
