Whether it’s to thaw out and refuel when it’s snowing a blizzard outside, or to dine al fresco on a sun-drenched terrace whilst lapping up the admirable mountain views, there’s no shortage of reliable Vaujany mountain restaurants with more charm and charisma than those in many purpose built resorts.
Where to go?
With more than 21 Alpe d’Huez and Vaujany mountain restaurants on and off the pistes you are spoilt for choice. There is of course the full monty three course, truly delicious, wine fuelled terrace lunches that put a dent both in the wallet as well as the afternoon's skiing plans. But we are also blessed with plenty of great food restaurant-chalets to choose from - the kind of places the instructors and guides take their clients to; simply good value, tasty fresh food.
Why not join our Ski Peak 'Ski Friends' and let them show you the very best mountain restaurants?
Here are some of our favourite Vaujany/Alpe d’Huez mountain restaurants - we can of course make reservations for you each day and will be happy to do so...
Les Airelles, Montfrais
Pascal and Natalie Basset, long-time owners of La Remise in Vaujany, have taken over Les Airelles and promise to provide a first-class service at this popular, well situated mountain restaurant. A perfect spot for lunch if your children are in ski school and also for a late afternoon sun-downer on your way home!
L'Alpette - Chez passoud, Alpette
La Grange, Alpette
Le Chalet du Lac Besson, Chamois
La Combe Haute, Gorge de Sarenne
Set beside the stream and amongst trees in a very pretty location this lovely mountain restaurant is always a pleasure to reach after a long, beautiful Sarenne descent. It is always warm and cosy inside, and later in the season the terrace is bathed in sunshine.
L'Altiport, Alpe d'Huez
Le Foret de Maronne, Le Chatelard
Great fun if you want to do a bit of 'travelling', this is tucked away on the edge of the forest near the bottom of the Maronne chair-lift. A beautiful location and absolutely idyllic on a sunny day. The 'plat du jour' is excellent value.
La Fruitiere (Folie Douce)
This new restaurant (as of last season) has rejuvenated what was a self service restaurant. It has three areas which you will be very aware of if you arrive after 14:00.
1.Inside as you enter is a well decorated and practical self service area with comfortable dining facilities and reasonably priced food.
2.Through the back is a restaurant where we have experienced great customer service, food and atmosphere.
3.The apres bar outside will have you dancing even if you don't want to. Prepare yourself for live singing, saxaphones and dancers to get you in the mood.
