Plan Bois "Chez Laurette"

The Chalet du Plan Bois has become an intimate high-altitude table de terroir. It's located in the Plan Bois mountain range, a place of nature and tranquillity, the backdrop to a rare experience.A native of the region and owner of the family chalet, Isabelle will welcome you once again with an original concept that surprised and pleased last winter, but also in a more traditional restaurant setting with a fondue bar. You'll also be able to enjoy a limited-edition lunch where quality comes first, with a personalized welcome "just like home" in the "little chalet", which can accommodate 4 to 8 guests in a private area. Once you've swapped your ski boots for slippers made in a French factory, you're ready to settle in to the chalet's stylishly decorated dining rooms (cloth tablecloths and napkins, china cabinet, armchairs, tableware and plaids), or onto the adjoining terrace. One table at a time, authentic cuisine based on local produce is served in the finest style. Isabelle is determined to create a "real" and rare address, where she takes great care of her guests. Unique daily menu in the private dining room of the little chalet, plus a selection of starters, main courses and desserts. Reservations essential via the website for the small chalet and by phone at 0609343788 for the other areas of the chalet. The restaurant has been awarded the "table de terroir" label by Table et Auberge de France. What's more, Isabelle and her team are committed to a responsible restaurant approach, with waste reduction and sorting measures, short circuits, local and seasonal products. The restaurant is a member of the Mountain Riders Association. High-altitude restaurant located around 500m from the finish of the Lac Noir gondola lift, 100m from the start of the beginners' ski lift. Access for skiers, pedestrians and cross-country skiers. Pedestrian walks to La Plagne. In summer, Isabelle awaits you in this authentic and charming place. Located at the start of several hiking trails to La Plagne, Mont Saint Jacques ...
