Gourmet note #1: Le Gîte du Mont-Albert

If you’re looking for an amazing family dining experience, le Gîte du Mont-Albert is an incredible place. After a beautiful but demanding hike up the peaks, we relaxed in the bar with a breathtaking view of surrounding mountain tops that were slowly getting wrapped in darkness and mist. A short glance at the menu, and we couldn’t resist moving to the dining room. Le Gîte offers fine gourmet food, made of local specialties and organic ingredients. The children’s menu is just as inventive and attractive – and free for the youngest ones! As my newborn was too little to sit in a high chair, I was offered a rocking chair to enjoy a peaceful dinner holding her in my arms, while my 3 and 5-year olds rested in a comfortable sofa after dining. Good food and excellent service was all we needed on that evening!
