l’Arrêt Bougnete

Perfectly located for a lunch break during a day’s ski in Le Tour, the Arrêt Bougnete is a cosy, family-run restaurant in the train station in Vallorcine. Take the red Forêt Verte piste all the way to the valley floor to enjoy a range of local speciality dishes; we recommend the gallettes.

In summer, the same piste is a mountain biking trail which takes you down from Le Tour to Vallorcine and the Arrêt Bougnete restaurant.

Be sure to check the time of the last lift back up to the ski / lift area in le Tour, otherwise you’ll need your Guest Card to catch the free train from Vallorcine back to Chamonix.
