“This typically Savoyard chalet exudes elegance and warmth, while offering the opportunity to sample the gourmet cuisine of both Michel Rochedy and Stéphane Buron in the 2 star Michelin restaurant, Le Chabichou.”
Walking into Le Chabichou is like walking in to an old friend’s apartment. There’s a warm, homely ambience to the property which stands out from afar due to its white wooden exterior. Once inside, everything feels cosy and comfortable, which is in part due to the fact that Le Chabichou is a family-owned and family-run boutique property, that’s been delivering dedicated and attentive service for over 50 years.
Perhaps most famous for its 2 Michelin star restaurant led by head chef Stéphane Buron, the hotel is ideal for gourmet enthusiasts seeking an intimate and laid-back-luxe ski break to the Alps. I enjoyed an indulgent raclette at the Bistro Chabotte on my first night and side from cheese, the menu is filled with dishes to savour: cleverly reinterpreted Savoyard specialties including fish from the mountain lakes, and desserts to linger over. For those keen to try the famous cuisine at Le Chabichou, heed this top tip – make a reservation in advance; it’s popular for a reason.
