My Route du Bonheur

My Route du Bonheur… Around Mont Blanc

Emmanuel Renaut
By Emmanuel Renaut, Owner and Chef of Flocons de Sel

itinerary with our concierge

+1 800 735 2478 * *Local charges apply
Emmanuel Renaut is one of the leading figures in modern French cuisine. After working with, amongst others, Christian Constant and Marc Veyrat, he settled in Megève in 1998, in a region that today he could no longer bear to leave… "I probably decided to live in the mountains even before deciding to become a chef. As a small child, I spent my summer and winter holidays in the shadow of permanently snow-covered peaks in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains and Les Houches. Later on, I did my military service in the mountain infantry in Chambéry. Then I had the opportunity to work alongside Marc Veyrat, which introduced me to another mountain. I like to walk through the mountain pastures and pick flowers and gather plants or mushrooms. As soon as the snow arrives, I strap on my skis or snowshoes and get away from it all. My skis are never too far from the kitchen…"

Flocons de Sel

Megève - France

Restaurant and hotel in the mountains. On the Megève heights, three-stars Chef and MOF (Best Craftsman of France) Emmanuel Renaut offers imaginative, colourful, timeless cuisine with a mountain flavour. He boldly injects colour, bitterness or acidity where they were not found before, to make each dish original and surprising. His cuisine reflects the scenery, with its soft, undulating parts, interrupted like a divine surprise by endless summits. Walk in the mountains with Emmanuel Renaut to discover mushrooms, flowers and wildlife. The hotel has several chalets which associate functionality with design in a cosy and relaxed atmosphere and a loft-type style. The treatments in the spa are inspired by the mountain: Megève pine trees, flowers and water ... Learn moreless

Exploring the baroque churches

Exploring the baroque churches

How many of these baroque churches are there, built from the seventeenth century onwards in the Maurienne, Tarentaise and Beaufortain valleys, and in the Val d’Arly? Almost eighty sites are listed with this very distinctive style, often modest from the outside but magnificent inside. Step through the doors and you will discover splendid gilded altarpieces decorated with wooden sculptures.

Hameau Albert Ier

Chamonix-Mont-Blanc - France

Restaurant and hotel in the mountains. At the foot of Mont Blanc, Pierre Carrier and Perrine Maillet have taken over this hotel, devoted to fine dining, founded in 1903 by “great grandfather Carrier”. The rooms in the main hotel or the chalets in the garden offer both modern and warm comfort. On the one hand, there is the superb menu at the Albert Ier with its recipes influenced by the Piedmont and Liguria and, on the other, the Maison Carrier with its specialities to be enjoyed in the atmosphere of an old farmhouse or with a view of the majestic beauty of Mont Blanc. The indoor/outdoor swimming pool also boasts vistas of the eternal snows. An equally stunning and delicious address. Note: renovation works of the "La Ferme" building (more information). ...

Gran Paradiso National Park

Gran Paradiso National Park

Gran Paradiso is the only peak higher than 4000 metres (4061 metres) which is located entirely in Italy, between the provinces of the Aosta Valley and Turin. It dominates the national park which bears its name. Established in 1922, the park, which was once a hunting reserve of King Victor Emmanuel of Savoy, is truly a paradise for lovers of mountain wildlife: ibexes, chamois, marmots, stoats and golden eagles can all be seen here.

The waterfalls in Lillaz

The waterfalls in Lillaz

This hamlet in the municipality of Cogne is the starting point for some superb walks in the Aosta Valley and it also has some very beautiful waterfalls. Close to the village of Lillaz, a succession of waterfalls, almost 150 metres high, forms the Grand Eyvia. In winter, when they are frozen, the sight is even more impressive.

On the route

The Pont d’Aël, Aymavilles

The Pont d’Aël, Aymavilles

Built in 3 BC, this Roman aqueduct bridge is situated 66 metres above the Grand Eyvia and once supported an aqueduct nearly six kilometres long, enabling the irrigation of crops in the valley. The former watercourse is today used by hikers to cross the gorge on their way to Cogne.

Le Chalet d’Adrien

Verbier - Switzerland

Hotel and restaurant in the mountains. In a postcard setting with unbelievable views of snowy peaks, Le Chalet d’Adrien seems to cling to the mountain. It overlooks Verbier, one of the most charming Swiss mountain resorts. An unrivalled ski paradise in winter, and mountain pastures for magnificent hikes in summer. Matching wood panelling and fabrics, antique furniture, books and objets d’art scattered around in a homey way combine to create a charming, cosy atmosphere from which the pristine beauty of the landscape can be enjoyed. The pool looking onto the mountains, and the Spa by Nuxe are an invitation to well-being. The restaurants feature the culinary flavours of nearby Italy and Valais products and wines. ...

Hôtel Victoria

Montreux-Glion - Switzerland

Hotel and restaurant in a village. For Toni and Barbara Mittermair, “guests don’t come to the hotel, they come to our home”. This home is beautifully located on the banks of Lake Geneva, with snowy mountain peaks behind. It is a pleasure to sip aperitifs on the terrace, whilst watching the beautiful sunset. The inspired owners have succeeded in preserving the intimate and welcoming atmosphere of a family hotel at the Victoria. In the hotel’s restaurant, the chef and his team create simple cuisine inspired by the south of France, such as the rack of Sisteron lamb with herbs accompanied by straw potatoes and ratatouille nicoise. ...
