L'Alpage des Fermes in Megève

Guest table with view

Perched at an altitude of 1,800 metres on the Rochebrune massif, L'Alpage des Fermes de Marie offers a delicious table d'hôtes with a view. Take the Caboche or Rochebrune cable cars and then travel by 4x4 or on foot along the mountain paths to discover an authentic refuge with wooden floors and walls covered with ancelles, those patinated wooden tiles, with its fireplace, old chests, hay racks and credenzas. The view, magical, plunges you on the circus of the Col du Véry, the Mount Charvin and the Aravis. Sip a raspberry wine-based imagined by Jocelyne Sibuet, for lunch or dinner on a full moonevening , just before you tuck into a generous buffet followed by a barbecue with delectable homemade pâté en croute, traditional "stone" soup, polenta sticks, knife-cliced mountain ham cut and stream trout with Alpine salt and herbs. Dessert fans will swoon over the red berry soup, buleberry and rhubarb trat, wild berry soup and homemade clafoutis... And for dinners, a baby-sitter accompanies the children to the table. For the epicurean contemplative.
