“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 - and once inside everything feels very cosy and completely comfortable. This, in part, is due to the fact that Le Chabichou is a family-owned and family-ran 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 – and owner – Michel Rochedy, the hotel is ideal for gourmet enthusiasts seeking an intimate and laid-back-luxe ski break to the Alps. Though I didn’t dine at the Le Chabicho Restaurant, I did share the most indulgent raclette at the Bistro Chabotte on my first night here. Aside from cheese, the bistro’s menu is filled with dishes to savour: cleverly reinterpreted Savoyard specialties, 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.
