Valloire Mountain Restaurants

There are five mountain restaurants above Valloire and of course more in the linked Valmeinier sector. They are all small-medium traditional mountain huts. Château Ripaille (+33 (0)4 79 83 31 34) is well placed in the Crey du Quart area while Les Mérégers (+33 (0)6 11 28 19 83) is on the "Les Selles" piste and has a cosy environment and traditional goodies to eat.

Thimel (+33 (0)4 79 05 36 65) is accessed from the Sétaz gondola and has a cafeteria style interior serving a wide range of filling lunches and lighter snacks. Le Chalet de la Brive (+33 (0)4 79 59 59 39) is one of the bigger establishments accessed from the Crêt de la Brive gondola so a good place to meet non-skiing members of your party if you have them. There’s a sunny area out front, complete with deckchairs for a sunshine fix.
