Airelles Val d'Isère: where all your cravings are met

Food & Drink

At Airelles Val d’Isère, we take great pleasure in sharing and in generosity. The proof of this is in our gastronomic and epicurean start to the day, when a mouth-watering buffet is laid out in the breakfast-room, which is itself filled with antique furniture and vintage wood. Whether you prefer your breakfast sweet or savoury, Airelles Val d’Isère has something for everyone.

Lunch is brought to us by one of the most respected female Chefs in France: Hélène Darroze. A true ambassador for her native south-west, she has brought the recipes from the region of her birth to her restaurants in Paris, London and now Val d’Isere. With the help of Loris Cornacchia, the executive Chef of Airelles Val d’Isère, she brings an array of delicious dishes to the table for lunch and dinner, while also bringing her acclaimed cookbook, JOÌA, to life.

On the menu are wild mushrooms cooked with black Périgord truffle, duck foie-gras terrine served with Savoy apple chutney, and green chard mixed with ham that’s been cooked on the bone and then gratinated with summer Beaufort. And that’s before we mention the generous dessert buffet that includes chocolate tart and grilled buckwheat, an Armagnac baba (a traditionally French pudding that resembles a brioche-like cake soaked in liquor), or even Paris-Brest cake with hazelnut praline and pomelo marmalade.

These are recipes handed down from our grandmothers. And when you put them together with culinary inspiration from some of the most talented chefs in France, a warm atmosphere and a refined and delicious menu, all these elements come together to create unforgettable memories for anyone who dines with us.

On sunny days, few places are lovelier than the Terrace, with 360-degree views of the breath-taking, snow-capped mountains. Located in one of Val d’Isère’s iconic squares, La Terrasse de Joìa is the perfect spot for taking a delicious break in the sun. Whether you want a spot of lunch or a moment to unwind after a day on the slopes, its warm, welcoming atmosphere is unbeatable.

Throughout the day, connoisseurs of rare wines and spirits meet at The Bar, so that they can savour the moment with a high-quality drink by their side. From the classics revisited to new, creative recipes, bartenders are ready to whip up anything on the spot. Although for any cigar or spirit aficionado, the best place to congregate is Airelles Val d’Isère’s smoking room, where memorable moments are created while sipping on or smoking the very best products on offer.

“If this is not happiness, then it certainly looks like it”

“The Carnotzet restaurant pays homage to cheese in all its forms”

Inside Airelles

In the evening, the Carnotzet restaurant pays homage to cheese in all its forms – and offers a range of comforting specialties from the mountain region in a warm Alpine atmosphere. On offer are fondues and raclettes, but also extraordinary medieval dishes made modern, including terrines and rich stews. Take a step back into the authentic past of Val d’Isère in this relaxing setting.

Finally, right next to Airelles Val d’Isère, is La Grande Ourse, a classic that has remained untouched. It is Val d’Isère’s most iconic brasserie, beloved for decades for its unforgettable menu and its irresistible dishes. What could be a better representative of Airelles Val d’Isère than this cherished institution?

Le TIGrr arrives in Gordes

Food & Drink

On 12th July, an Asian-inspired restaurant with an already legendary reputation in St Tropez and Megève took up residence at the heart of La Bastide in the Luberon region.

Le TIGrr Gordes, perched on the side of the village, offers breath-taking panoramic views over the Alpilles Valley from atop its large terrace. Accessible to guests via a charming small alley on the side of La Bastide, the feline’s lair is set to become an essential part of Gordes life.

Whether it be for a drink or dinner, Le TIGrr Gordes takes its guests on journey to a faraway world, blending exotic flavours with delicate dishes. A lounge bar with a festive atmosphere, the new arrival is a fantastic way to top off a day in the village.

The entrance bar serves a wonderful selection of the best wine vintages, champagne and signature house cocktails. It also caters for true epicureans with its deliciously refined cuisine, which features sushi, sashimi, maki rolls, dim sum, steamed rolls, egg rolls, spring rolls and the now famous Asian-coloured welcome cocktail. The perfect choice for anyone feeling peckish.

The lounge ambiance is made for celebrating, indulging and talking. As the night goes on, the atmosphere heats up thanks to live music from a different DJ every week, playing the smooth sounds of great funk, soul, disco and house classics.

Gourmet experiences in Gordes: haute cuisine at its finest

Food & Drink

Standing opposite the spectacular Luberon massif, the charming Saint-Firmin medieval château and church tower high over the small village of Gordes. A true gem of Provincial France and the inspiration for many an artist, the village is steeped in history and tradition and also attracts gastronomes, food connoisseurs and hedonists from the world over. This gastronomic tour will guide visitors around the rich variety of hearty, exquisite cuisine on offer at La Bastide de Gordes.

First stop is at the heart of La Bastide, where the taste buds are not the only ones being regaled, but the eyes too: here you savour the view while you admire the cooking.

L’Orangerie restaurant in La Bastide takes its patrons on a journey through the colours and flavours of Provence, with a gastropub ambiance that gives star billing to quintessential regional cuisine. A combination of audacity mixed with tradition provided by the fresh and seasonal local produce. Enjoy lunch on the terrace under the shade of the mulberry trees, or in the winter garden overlooking the dizzying Luberon landscape, strewn with century-old olive trees swaying in the wind: a masterpiece to behold.

Every Sunday, families and friends come together around the famous brunch, which has a cult following throughout the region. A succulent and sociable rendez-vous that you cannot miss, with the mouth-watering pastries of Elena Mosette, the Head Pâtissier, and an abundance of treats each one more scrumptious than the last.

Next is La Citadelle restaurant, which doesn’t just settle for the magnificent setting in which it lies. As night falls, the building takes on a magical atmosphere and bewitches tradition by serving up dinner that exudes the inventive and creative flavours of Provence. The heavenly food and exceptional sunset views over the valley leave no guest unmoved and ensure everyone enjoys a memorable experience they will never forget.

La Bastide is constantly reinventing itself to indulge and delight its guests. This year, a mammoth event is in the making: the opening of a new restaurant, with a whole new concept, a new name and the talents of a Michelin-Starred Chef whose identity will shortly be revealed !

“…here you savour the view while you admire the cooking.”

“La Bastide is constantly reinventing itself to indulge and delight its guests…”

Inside Airelles

The streets of Gordes and its numerous art galleries are ideal for taking a stroll and losing yourself in your thoughts. When hunger strikes, La Bastide de Pierres is the place to go. This trattoria, open since 1820, transports you across the Alps and awakens the senses with divine Italian cuisine and an authentic, convivial atmosphere. Antipasti to die for, bruschetta and traditional pasta, pizzas, and more…the dolce vita right at the village centre.

To end our gastronomic voyage, we stop off at Le TIGrr restaurant. The legendary establishment from St Tropez and Megève is taking up residence at Gordes, much to the delight of fans of flavourful cuisine from distant shores. Run by Oth Sombath, crowned Best Thai Chef in France, this Asian-inspired restaurant offers a unique gustatory experience that will have diners purring with pleasure. A slight touch of exoticism and unfamiliar surroundings in the middle of Provence, which can be enjoyed with an aperitive on the terrace until late into the night with the live DJ.

Gordes is teeming with fine establishments that only help to enhance the enchantment and elegance of what promises to be an incredible stay. Bon appétit!
