Peisey Vallandry Mountain Restaurants.
There are about 35 altitude mountain restaurants across the Paradiski region and you’ll find descriptions of some in the la Plagne and les Arcs sectors in their separate entries. Half a dozen of these are local to Peisey Vallandry though, and they’re generally so good that skiers tend to come over from Les Arcs to lunch here!
The Blanche Murée (+33 (0)6 09 40 56 53) on the edge of the Rêches'piste serves up great, traditional food and has a nice terrace to enjoy it on on sunny days, there’s a children’s menu and a bar menu too. La Poudreuse (+ 33 (0)4 79 07 90 25) has a similar set up and selection. La Cordée (+33 (0)4 79 07 01 14) 100m above the Vanoise Express is similar again, and does great crepes.
At the top of the Grizzly chair is Enfants Terrible which has a gourmet restaurant on the first floor and a smart cafeteria set up on the ground floor with a superb sun terrace.
There are half-a-dozen options down at the base of the runs too you can ski up to for lunch. Among them Restaurant Le Solan (+33 (0)4 79 07 15 06; restaurant-lesolan.com) in Peisey Nancroix does a good range of pizza alongside French favourites.
