Mountain Restaurants

The Plan Joran mountain restaurant is a large wooden chalet with both self-service and table service areas and a big terrace for eating out on sunny days. The Chalet Refuge de Lognan (+33 6 88 56 03 54) is a still more atmospheric establishment that’s great for traditional mountain cuisine. One of the biggest places is Argentero, which has Italian cuisine and another nice big terrace.
