Newly-renovated four-star hotel: Araucaria Hotel & Spa****

Union: a new restaurant from UK Michelin-starred chef, Phil Howard
World-renowned UK chef, Phil Howard, opens his new restaurant, Union, in Plagne Montalbert this winter. With a focus on rigorously seasonal ingredients, the menu will feature entirely new dishes which suit the contemporary Alpine setting – not a tartiflette or fondue in sight. The restaurant opened on 16 December with a team of chefs from London, in an open-kitchen format, and will serve dinner seven days a week.
Breathtaking panoramic views: Le 360 Restaurant
This contemporary new restaurant, which opened on 16 December, features wall-to-wall glass windows offering 360 degree views of the Plateau du Fornelet in Plagne-Montalbert. The menu is based around quality local produce, featuring hearty dishes such as fresh pasta, grilled meats and warming soups, all at affordable prices. Situated at 1970 m, the restaurant is also accessible via the Montalbert gondola, offering skiers and non-skiers alike the chance to escape the cold for a gourmet break in a spectacular setting.
