La Bouitte (meaning “little house” in the local dialect), started from humble beginnings, being built in the mid-70s by René and Marie-Louis Meilleur as a mountain restaurant catering for skiers and serving hearty local fare such as fondue and raclette. The establishment’s development began in 1984, with the creation of St Martin de Belleville as a ski resort, culminating in the restaurant being awarded its third Michelin star in 2015.
This is truly a family-owned and managed concern: René is now joined in the kitchen by his son Maxime, whose wife Delphine also assists in managing the hotel. In 2005, the small Bela Vya spa was opened, offering traditional Savoyard wellness treatments, inspired by nature, and where guests discover the exclusive Meilleur Nature range of products, made with extract of local alpine plants.
Possibly the most celebrated of La Bouitte’s qualities is its restaurant, with its beautiful traditional Savoyard décor, its welcoming, warm atmosphere (without the preciousness sometimes found in high-end restaurants), and its renowned cuisine, which often uses everyday ingredients and elevates them with a theatrical twist. There is a good selection of set menus and à la carte dishes; the wine list is exceptional.
Ample uncovered parking is available.
La Bouitte offers 15 chalet-style rooms and suites, each bearing a girl’s name; all are very comfortable and individually decorated in traditional rustic-chic Savoyard style with wooden floors and chunky furniture, but with a distinct feminine feel; all are beautifully appointed and offer all contemporary amenities, such as flat-screen satellite TV, telephone, safe, minibar and free wifi.
All rooms and suites have en-suite bath or shower room with WC; most have balcony or terrace. The suites have a lounge, except for the Lucie suite (for 2-4 guests).
All rooms contain a double bed, most of which may be converted to 2 singles. The third bed in the Comfort and Superior rooms and the Junior Suite may be either on a mezzanine accessed via a ladder-staircase (or a sofa bed in a lounge area - Comfort and Superior rooms).
