Two thousand metres up a mountain, Franck Mischler, Executive Head Chef of the Folie Douce/Fruitiere group and Michelin starred in his own right, brings you a menu that is inventive, working as ever with food from the local market. Assisted by Gilles Orru who orders in the food for Meribel, they effortlessly mix modern with traditional.

La Petite Cuisine does things its own way. A bit more relaxed, this canteen-style eaterie too relies heavily on quality local produce, plus its great atmosphere. The meals are less formal, with more variety, and no concession made on the generosity of servings, or the quality and taste of the dishes.
La Petite Cuisine too has become a byword for authentic cuisine, simple, generous, hearty and spicy.
Open daily from 11.30-3.30pm

Vanessa Mandito is a french mexican artist that was almost born on stage as her mother continued to perform as a dancer till the term of her pregnancy.
Knowing this, we understand why Vanessa is a great and charismatic performer with a latin fever that puts the stage on fire.
She knew how to dance before knowing how to walk so it's easy to tell that she sang before she knew how to speak !
Eversince, the stage as always been Vanessa's favorite place she calls her "sweet home" where she could be free to express her wild side. The girl grew up between Mexico, land of her father, France and USA where she studied. And wherever she was shenever stopped performing considering it her oxygen.
Also songwriter and composer, she was signed at Universal Music in 2003, recording several songs and appearing on TV.
In 2005, away from Majors Companies, Vanessa starts to work with other artists for glamorous and private events travelling the world to perform at celebrities hottest parties among those : Djibril Cissé's wedding and Gary Neville's, Manchester United official parties at Old Trafford Stadium and Champion's League Final in Moscow and UK, Christie's annual charity balls, Virgin Music Parties in London...
