The Newest Addition to Val d'Isère's Captivating Culinary Scene

Dining delights directly on the slopes

World-class in more ways than one, Val d'Isère offers wonderful skiing, a vibrant après-ski scene, exquisite restaurants and stunning luxury hotels, the newest of which is the incredible Airelles Val d'Isere Mademoiselle. After a day spent on the slopes, return to this medieval-inspired ski-in/ski-out hideaway in the lively Place de Neige - think aristocratic elegance, antique furniture, unique artwork and plenty of wood. You'll find inspiring rooms, suites and apartments, a magical Children's Kingdom, private cinema and exceptional Guerlain spa for rejuvenating post-ski. Just when we thought this luxury Val d'Isère hotel couldn't get anymore desirable, they have recently unveiled their new restaurant for the upcoming winter season...

Introducing: LOULOU

A highly celebrated eatery located in the gardens of Le Musee du Louvre in Paris, LOULOU has found its way from the streets of the city to the slopes of the French Alps this winter. Expect a nod to Parisian style in the form of chic interiors and art from international designer Charles de Castelbajac, as well as cuisine that will leave you lost for words...

Menus to Remember

The Executive Chef Benoit Dargère (who heads up the original Paris jaunt) has created an innovative menu that adds an après-ski flair to Italian dishes, while celebrating the best of local produce and regional favourites. While everything on the menu is simply sublime, highlights include the famous truffle pizza, an incredible green linguine with pistachio sauce, Puglian panzerotti and a flavour-filled pot au feu - traditional French stew.

To-Die-For Desserts

At Airelles Val d'Isere Mademoiselle, there is always space for dessert. At least there will be once you feast (pun not intended) your eyes on the luxurious dessert buffet filled with sweet treats - from gingerbread houses too cute to eat, to mind-blowingly light choux pastry croquettes using an authentic French recipe. The Italian influence comes in the form of incredible ice-cream made using pistachios and hazelnuts from Piedmont in the north of the country, as well as a perfectly prepared panettone drizzled in sabayon sauce.

The Ultimate Après-Ski Spot

Sometimes, a ski holiday is just as much about the experience off the slopes, as it is the skiing. Luckily, LOULOU's playful spirit spills out onto an expansive, sun-drenched terrace that has been cleverly designed to host both large après-ski parties and more intimate lunches in cosy pergolas. Sip on elegant cocktails as you kick back in plush seating, snuggle beside the warmth of the firepits, or dance the evening away to the beats of a DJ.

From driving along the sun-kissed California coast and whale watching in Canada, to swimming with turtles in Barbados, cookery classes in Oman and touring temples in Thailand, I've enjoyed some amazing experiences around the world. With a genuine love for all things travel, I can't think of anything I'd rather do than research, experience and share incredible destinations, luxury hotels and bespoke adventures.
