What to Expect
French Wine & Cuisine
After a morning’s skiing, have a traditional lunch of Savoyard cuisine at a mountain restaurant. We recommend trying a hearty raclette, cheese fondue or tartiflette with a crisp, aromatic French white wine. Any meal in France tends to be followed by a shot of the local herbal digestif, Genepi. Across the French Alps there are 21 Michelin-star restaurants. Expect innovative twists on traditional Alpine cuisine.
After a day’s skiing, you will have earnt a demi-pêche or a glass of French wine on the sun terrace or by a crackling fire. Oenophiles may like to play connoisseur at wine tasting experiences. French resorts are well equipped for winter activities, whether its paragliding in Val d’Isère, ice diving in the Tignes lake, tobogganing in Val Thorens or ice skating across Megève’s rink. A special occasion could be marked by a sunrise hot air balloon ride over Courchevel.
