Fun & Fromage in Les Deux Alpes

A little while ago I went to Les Deux Alpes where I enjoyed some fantastic local dishes, drank some lovely wines, suffered a few hangovers…oh and did a bit of skiing, only a bit though, it was all about the fromage for me really.

Here’s our trip in pictures (thank you to Tom and Joe for most of these!)

The hotel…

Hotel Cote Brune - Highly Recommended

Adorable Alpine Chic Bedrooms!

A beautiful and perfectly located hotel, with friendly staff, good food and peaceful spa area.

The wine…(six bottles between five on the first evening)…*sore heads*

A lot of this lovely mountain wine was consumed

The Food…

Cheese heaven!

Escargot...garlicky goodness

Plenty of meat and hot stone cooking took place...

Crepes - a ski trip must!

Tartiflette - a delicious local speciality made with cheese, potatoes, bacon bits, cream...you get the idea!

The world's smallest salad (and this was a starter!)

Last but definitely not least it’s the raclette, heaven for cheese lovers like me…can you believe it…I’d never actually had one before this trip! To order a raclette there must be at least two people to enjoy it (partly why I’d never had one before)…So I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thanks to Joe for manning up and sharing a raclette with me! It was awesome… in fact it was so awesome and exciting  that I forgot to take a photo…so here’s a picture very much resembling our raclette experience courtesy of Google Images…

 

Fromage Fantastique!

The Best Restaurant…

Crepes A GoGo - quirky, fun and good quality food...I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough!

Oh and the slopes…

Here I am taking in the beautiful scenery

Great memories of a great trip!
