Cantine des Dents Blanches

Cantine des Dents Blanches

Built in 1906 in the tranquil Barme valley, the Cantine des Dents Blanches was originally an alpine farm. Today it is a lovely mountain restaurant, popular with hikers and nature lovers. The first time you discover Barme it's easy to think you've passed through the Pearly Gates. Starting from the place we call Grand Paradis, this bucolic alpine valley can be reached on foot or by car. By car, the narrow road winds several kilometres through thick forests and along steep mountainsides until, suddenly, there is a break in the trees and the valley appears, spread out below like an illustration right out of Heidi. Nestled in a sunny spot near a bubbling stream with the formidable Barme climbing rock at its back, the Cantine des Dents Blanches is a favourite stop for epicureans in search of local specialties, families out for a Sunday stroll and weary hikers on the Tour des Dents Blanches. Fondue and cheese on toast, crêpes, and waffles served up in our cosy dining room and on the large, sunny terrace, we take pride in our homemade, locally-sourced cuisine. We also offer a large selection of delicious regional wines. The Barme Valley can be reached by a narrow mountain road from Grand Paradis (about 25 minutes by car). Hikers can reach us via any number of hiking trails (about 1h30 from Champéry). Lodgings include : 3 rooms with 2 beds : Cheuvreuils (ground floor) - Ecureuils - Oursons 1 room with 1 double bed and 2 beds for kids : Mouflons 1 dormitory with 5 beds : Marmottes 1 dormitory with 4 beds : Chamois 1 dormitory with 15 beds : Bouquetins Loo and sink on the same level (cold water), shower with hot water on the ground floor (on request but at no additional cost).
