Good, Better and Best – Lazy Lunches in the 3 Valleys

We love the 3 valleys and after 10 years living & working here, with our boutique chalet company, The Alpine Club, we thought we’d share a few of our favorite things.

Our favourite lazy lunches…..

Good – La Bouche a Oreille (St Martin de Belleville) – Lovely new restaurant run by the same family as the 2* La Bouitte in nearby St Marcel; rotisserie based menu with food served in le creuset pots & dishes; champagne by the glass & delicious chocolate desert; Savoyard style with a Scandinavian influence, we understand a major refurbishment is panned for the summer. +33 (0)4 79 00 46 48

Better – Chalet de La Marine (Val Thorens) – Cosy atmosphere with open log fire, sheepskins on the chairs & masses of beautiful old wood; attentive service & imaginative menu (love the wok style prawns & the scallop & truffle risotto). The help yourself dessert table is to die for so save some room.

Best – La Soucoup (Courchevel) – Stylish decor, chandeliers & velvet curtains rub shoulders with old wood & antiques; cooking on the open fire, massive picture windows with panoramic views of the mountains or Courchevel; delicious food – loved the black pudding with apple; take your credit card if you fancy something off the wine list.
