Savoyard Gastronomy


Savoyard Gastronomy in the Alps

The Savoyard specials are not limited only to raclette, fondue and tartiflette; certainly always well appreciated after a good day of skiing or hiking in the beautiful mountains. Here is a small preview of our favorite dishes :

As an appetizer :

At the après-ski time : delicatessen meats and various cheeses to be served with a good Savoy wine, conviviality guaranteed !. Some craft beers are also produced in the region by dozens of small authentic breweries. You can add to these some Rioutes, they are salty cakes with anise.

For main course :

Stir fried Fish : near the Savoy Lakes, you can enjoy many kinds of different fishes : trout, monkfish, pike, feras, perch.

The farçon : it is an authentic savory dish that dates from the Middle Ages. It contains a salty base (usually: cabbage / eggs / potatoes / milk / onions / cheese) combined with dried fruits such as prunes, raisins and figs, all surrounded by thin slices of smoked bacon. The secret of this recipe: a long cooking time for a melty and slightly caramelized rendering. It can be accompanied by salad only.

The diots : these pork sausages cooked with white wine and onions are ment to eat with a good creamy polenta au gratin with Beaufort or crozets gratin : small square buckwheat pastas to cook with its sauce. The best way is obviously croziflette (crozets pastas, onions, cream, bacon and reblochon).

Matafan (or matefaim) is a potato pancake that can be eaten sweet or salty. It is a recipe coming from Savoy and Dauphiné (neighboor department) that is a bit similar to the Swiss Rösti.   

The berthoud: first rasp or cut the Abondance cheese, then place it in ramekins, previously rubbed with garlic. Cover with white wine of Savoy, pepper and lightly sprinkle with nutmeg before baking in the oven. To be served with potatoes.

For dessert :

The traditional wild blueberry pie    

The Génépi cup: two scoops of Génépi ice cream that are generously served with Génépi alcohol on top

The delicious nut pie

The light cake of Savoy, embellished with milk jam for gluttony!

And to finish in style :

If you did not abuse mulled wine on the slopes, you must finish a good mountain meal with a local digestive drink : pine liqueur, Génépi, Chartreuse, Mont-Corbier, or Suédois, they are all herbal alcohols of our mountains obviously! All that the good restaurant addresses in our stations we know them well and will not fail to give them to you, so remember to question us during your stay.

With our wide selection of comfortable accommodations, our advice on good restaurants and places to find the best products, you will leave for sure with a big smile and who knows maybe some extra luggage (obviously we talk about of the honey pots and cheese that you will bring back home to your friends).

End of season in the mountains


End of season in the mountains

Enjoy Ski and Sun for little price

Between the end of winter and the beginning of spring it is still a little too early to go to the seaside, and you may not suspect it, but it is a very pleasant period at altitude: skiing for alpine purists and activities in the resort for others. The atmosphere is relaxed and it is guaranteed to enjoy a generous sun, slopes just for you and especially very attractive prices.

If snow cover at the beginning of the season (late November / early December) is sometimes random, it is generally still significant in early spring and often the snow levels observed at altitude in March / April are much higher than those measured at the beginning of winter season. So you can still have fun on the slopes for a few more weeks!

You should know that more than 80 ski resorts in the Alps are still open, at least until mid-April, because indeed the ski season is far from over in Savoie, Haute-Savoie and Isere. The conditions are still excellent especially above 1600 meters altitude.

Organize your stay with the Agency Sea and Mountain, spend unforgettable moments in our most beautiful chalets and apartments of standing, and of course at the best rates!

You will enjoy the same pleasures as in high season but without any constraints: More expectations at the checkouts to take your packages, at high-altitude restaurants or lifts! The tradesmen and the local population will be very caring with you.

At this time, the expenses incurred for your stay will be much less important than all the rest of the season; and then in the spring there is no risk of a big snowstorm: make the most of your holiday week! The temperatures are mild, sunny spells are more frequent and very often it is even great sun assured!

If you are a beginner, know that this time of the year will delight young and old for their learning: snow more flexible, clear vision and less crowded slopes.

As for those who do not ski or little, the activities do not miss, the resorts will offer ice rinks, cinema, spa, bowling, and you can also enjoy the hiking trails that unfold at the end of the winter. Ask directly the tourist offices of the resort that interests you, or check their websites, you will find, in addition to the various activities offered, their animation programs often busy in this period.
