Beyond its superb skiing conditions, picturesque alpine towns and tremendous apres ski scene, The Alps are home to some of the world's finest restaurants. Sometimes showcasing regional cuisine, other times bringing the taste of Asia or the Mediterranean to the mountains, no two Michelin Star dining experiences are the same. We've pulled together a list of some of our favourite Michelin Star restaurants in The Alps.
Courchevel holds the highest number of Michelin stars of any European ski resort. Highlights include:
Le 1947 à Cheval Blanc (3 stars)
The only restaurant in Courchevel with three Michelin stars to its name. Le 1947 ànever fails to deliver a unique gastronomic experience.
