When a ski region’s Michelin-starred restaurants are as twinkly and numerous as the stars in the night sky above it, you know you’re onto a good thing. And that’s just the case in the 3 Vallées where delicious, gourmet, Michelin-rated restaurants fill not only the villages, but are scattered across the slopes too. For a week’s skiing like no other, why not try a different one each day?
Start the week in Val Thorens at L’Oxalys, home to the youngest Michelin-starred chef of his time and it’s also the highest Michelin-starred restaurant in Europe at 2,300m. Next, descend to 1,350m and into La Tania where you’ll find Le Farçon, and its uncomplicated Michelin gastronomy provided by a father and son team. Spanning the altitudes between, don’t miss La Bouitte in St Martin de Belleville and Le Bateau Ivre and Le Chabichou, both in Courchevel 1850. Here’s a tip - make sure you get a good ski under your belt in the morning, as after you’ve lunched at these places, all you’ll be capable of is a leisurely run home. Ahh, delicious.
