Fabulous Food Friendly Staff,
Our first overwhelming impression of this hotel was the helpfulness of the family team, 2 generations serve you on reception, in the bar and in the restarant. The rooms are simple French Alpine white, very clean and basic, old TV, not the most luxurious bathroom in the world and a shower that runs off the taps. The leisure facilities are small and free, swimming pool with glass top bit of a child nightmare and a very small two-person sauna. Good location at beginning of the resort, quiet, the small 75yd uphill walk at end of day can be bit tiring.
The food is unbelievable, we saw the New Year in at L’Adret and the young Chef served us 8 unbelievable courses:
A cold tomato soup, Saint Sylvestre, followed by the most amazing Blaze of Fresh Lobster with Cognac .
Panfried Foie gras or Trio of Salmon both were visually attractive and so flavoursome.
Duck fillets with sautéed potatos. Then a trou Normand, ice calvados.
The best selection of local cheese I have ever tasted
And then a tiramisu of the New Year.
I have eaten at Mossiman, Michel Roux and regularly at Wentworth, this food is better, presentation is immaculate on Villeroy Bosch plates with fine silver cutlery.
The food was so good that I looked forward to the next dinner. The single most important thing was the use of top quality local produce, cheese and local meat. The evening’s menu is displayed in the morning by the front door, if you did not like the choices you could opt for a fondue or alternative. We had great steak, amazing fondue and fabulous chicken. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced all the staff are attentive without being overly so. The comfortable unpretentious design of the restaurant made it comfortable for us to enjoy our meals with our two children.
Breakfast is clean well presented buffet with cheese, ham, yoghurts, eggs, breads and selection of croissants. No Lunch service or bar food.
There is a small play area off the bar, which amused our three year old and 12 year old.
The Pros – fantastic food and quality wine. They have a little minibus to run you to the slopes in the morning with the kids. The Overall service. Value for money.
The Cons- Dinner is not served until 7.45pm, food could be too gourmet for English kids, but if you ask in advance they will do fondue or frites for children.
The ski-ing at this resort varied, frequent free buses operate to the various lift stations. Vast choice of restaurants and bars.
