Val Thorens - ‘Le Hameau du Kashmir’ - 4 Star Luxury

It boasts a gourmet bistro restaurant, 'Le Karmin', which has a charming and sophisticated atmosphere and comes highly recommended by staff here at Ski Collection! We love the fact that the delicious French cuisine is inspired by traditional Alpine recipes, creating new and exciting flavours. The staff were friendly and attentive too.
In addition to the restaurant, there are five terraces and a small glass cabin located almost on the ski slopes for a more intimate dining experience under the stars. 'Le Yack' steakhouse offers a more relaxed rustic dining experience with plenty of meat dishes to choose from.
