The views alone make it worth stopping off at this sunny spot overlooking the valley, never mind the food (which has earned it a reputation as one of the most delcious restaurants in Tignes). Reach it via the Chaudannes chair lift or by skiing down the Corniche blue from the top of Aiguille Percee, then pause for a drink or one of the best hot chocolates on the mountain. But it’s not just aesthetics and hot choc alone that make Lo Soli a must-eat. ‘The Barn’ – which is how Lo Soli translates from the local Tignard dialect – also has a reputation for excellent food. Try a Caesar salad, the melt-in-the-mouth local stew known as pot-au-feu or a gâteau d’agneau, which is lamb dressed in aubergine, onion, tomato and spices.
And if you’re in a hurry? The self-service Alpage restaurant is also worth checking out.
