Megève looks out over a breathtaking landscape. This village is tucked in the Savoie, in the Mont Blanc range at the heart of the Alps. Here, there is a building that has preserved all the charm that made this village renowned for being one of the most beautiful ski stations in the world. The setting is indeed ideal for Flocons de Sel hotel. Luxury and comfort are the key words here, in this building that’s ideal for lovers of winter sports – right next to some of the Alps’ most beautiful skiable domains, you can’t get any better than this when it comes to hitting the slopes.
But what can be found inside Flocons de Sel is luxury and authenticity, alongside the toned-down comfort of nine rooms, suites, and private chalets. The hotel’s spa is delightful in and of itself: a cocoon of well-being with an indoor pool, sauna, and outdoor Nordic bath, it offers a sweeping view of the mountains. In the heights of Megève, you’re sure to be swept off your feet. Nothing can compare to the restaurant though, the only one in the region to have received three Michelin stars.
Flocons de Sel’s restaurant is a pure homage to the mountains. It’s also an unforgettable culinary journey, composed around very personal dishes and regional products that are cooked with creativity like none other. The chef is Emmanuel Renaut, owner of the sublime hotel along with his wife Kristine, turning it into a nook as simple as it is distinguished. On Sunday, March 5th, Emmanuel Renaut brought together fellow chefs Yannick Alléno and René Meilleur, all of them old friends, to share their talent and creativity during an impromptu evening. A menu entitled “À la découverte des Flocons de Sel” came out of this collaboration; it’s a nine-star collaboration at that, since each of these chefs, guided by their art of offering an interpretation of mountainous cuisine, is triple starred. This simple pleasure could only be anchored in the timelessness of Savoyard conviviality.
