Cold meats on display at alpine dining

Foodies amongst us have been longing for the chance to dine out this year and now restaurants are opening their doors once more, it’s time to shake off our napkins and indulge in some haute cuisine – and we mean, literally, haute.

High on our list of mouthwatering destinations is La Ferme de Bacré in Megève, a romantically remote farmhouse high in the Alps on the Planay plateau, where you can enjoy private dining courtesy of the Sibuet family while admiring the breathtaking views of the Aiguilles Croches peaks and the Megève valley. Social distancing doesn’t get more glam than this!

Newly opened this year to mark the 30th anniversary of the Sibuets’ Megève hotel, Les Fermes de Marie, guests are invited to hike through the alpine pastures (or snowshoe in winter!) to enjoy a regional feast of family favourites, including local cheeses, fine meats, truffle-spiked pasta and mountain honey.

This off-grid destination boasts oodles of fresh mountain air, blissful silence and the chance to indulge in incredible cuisine in the perfect private hideaway, ideal for those of us who still wish to avoid the crowds.

Guests can stay in one of 10 private chalets, each with its own abundant charm and story to tell, combining the five-star service of a boutique hotel with the intimacy of a private chalet, with antler chandeliers, patchwork throws and hunting trophies all adding to the rustic idyll. There’s even an accordion player, in case all that silence gets too much…
