Les Vieilles Luges
Les Vieilles Luges is a top secret in Les Houches. It is easily one of the most romantic and cosy mountain restaurants we have ever been in.
Claude and Julie assure you of a warm welcome and you can sit down for a full meal at lunch time, a little coffee to pick you up in the afternoon, or if there's a group of you, tuck in to a good meal in the evening.
This mountain restaurant is easily accessible in winter on skis or board from the main pistes of Les Houches, or you can snowshoe up a path to the restaurant in around 20mins from the little Maison Neuve car park area.
In summer Les Vieilles Luges is a welcome stop for hikers on the famous GR5 route and the garden is ablaze with colour, completely decked out in flowers.
One of the specialities of Les Vieilles Luges is 'farcon'. This is a traditional Savoyard dish slow cooked in a dish that can only described as a flowerpot! It's full of cheese, potatoes, lardons and prunes so will definitely fill you up!
And dessert is pretty special too. You might be in luck and be there when Julie has made her very tasty pavlova...
