Fondues and raclettes in the larch-paneled dining room in the winter, and market cuisine on the hollyhock-decked terrace in the summer… At Les Alisiers – an authentic chalet with half-moon windowed doors and a wooden passageway – expect two seasons and two different ambiances. Tested and approved last June, the generous €19 menu of the day made the bees sing: a divine pissaladière with onion confit and chard, plus a rich homemade caillette; an incredibly tender veal picatta served with jus de cuisson, potato fritters, carrot purée and sautéed zucchini; before a subtle chocolate génoise with cherries in syrup, chocolate cream, strawberries and whipped cream. To drink, there’s a well chosen selection inspired by the mountains: a high Alpine Chardonnay from the Domaine Allemand (€4 a glass), a Coteaux-de-Pierrevert, La Blaque (€24 a bottle), or a Savoyard Roussette from Grisard (€25). Menus €19 (lunch except Sunday and national holidays), €30 and €39, à la carte €27-42. There’s also a small apartment for rent starting at €70 a night. // G.D.
