La Chavanne Restaurant & Bar, Flegere

A mountain restaurant, bar and hot-tub spot

La Chavanne is a perfect spot to stop off for a snack and a drink in between ski runs. It faces the Mer de Glace and there are rows of deck chairs and seats for you to soak up the sun from.

They're open every day depending on weather conditions, serving tartiflette, hot dogs, a variety of sandwiches and drinks.

Take up on the VIP experience in La Chavanne's Jacuzzi in the middle of the pistes! Don't forget your swimwear, flip flops and your bottle of champagne. There's a live DJ every Saturday from 12h to 16h, often accompanied by saxophononist.

They're located in the middle of the Flégère pistes. Take the cable car to the Flégère, then the green slope la Trappe to La Chavanne chairlift (the first chair on the right). Then you get off at the top of the big rock, and slide on the blue track La Chavanne to the entrance. (You'll pass over it on the chairlift so you can see exactly where to go).

This is one of our favourite places to hang out in late March and April as it's a real sun-trap, although you do have to get in early to bag a deck chair!

And don't forget to stop by in the summer, as they're also open from 11am to 4pm weather permitting. 


Visitor comments

"Spent a couple of lunchtimes here last weekend and loved it. The telecabine was closed so the slopes were quiet and the bar comfortably busy; I imagine it can get quite crowded at times. DJ Phil wasn't there but the staff played insane mixes of 3-4 rock classics mixed with club tunes - only in France :-) Get there early to enjoy the house speciality - Tartiflette - which they make outside in a huge wok; it seemed rude not to drink Champagne in such a spectacular location." - Trip Advisor
