in the Portes du Soleil...The art of living Franco Suisse

The French-Swiss way of life

The embarrassment of good

The Portes du Soleil area is located at the crossroads of Valais and Haute-Savoie, two regions with strong culinary traditions in their respective countries.

More than 90 high-altitude restaurants line the Portes du Soleil ski slopes, from small farm inns to gourmet restaurants.

Good to know

Here the raclette war will not take place! We serve both: the Swiss and the French.
This is one of the interests of a domain without borders. A little advice, do not say that there is one better than the other!

2 PDO or nothing!.

French side it is in 2017 that the Raclette obtained a PGI, Raclette de Savoie. On the Swiss side, Raclette has been distinguished with a Valais PDO since 2003. So to be sure to choose quality, ask for a Valais PDO or Savoy PGI raclette!”

Good to know

In the Valley of Abondance, don’t leave without having tasted Berthoud! This typical recipe is based on AOP Abondance, a legendary cheese linked to this place whose name it bears.

A valley, a cow, a cheese!”

It is here, on the slopes that you will certainly take, that in the summer, the cows of the same name graze in the alpine pastures! Don’t hesitate to talk to a ski patroller or a person from the ski lifts about his job… It could well be that he is a farmer !
