Les Airelles offers three exciting new restaurants in Val d’Isere this winter


After a fantastic season at Airelles Saint-Tropez, Château de la Messardière, Matsuhisa has launched a new outpost at Airelles Val d’Isère for the winter season, making it the first and only Matsuhisa in the French Alps.

Open to hotel and external guests, diners can sample world-renowned Chef Nobu’s unique Japanese cuisine with Peruvian influences. The restaurant is set within an elegant Japanese-style alpine wonderland featuring a dark colour palate, black wooden tables, velvet furnishings, a contemporary fireplace, and a large sushi bar taking centre stage.

The menu at Matsuhisa Val d’Isère embodies the Matsuhisa philosophy and includes signature favourites such as Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, Black Cod Miso, and Whitefish Tiradito. A large selection of sakes and creative cocktails will complete the experience.

Le Relais

Le Relais Val d’Isère, is Airelles’ brand-new high-altitude restaurant, serving authentic French brasserie cuisine. Guests particularly enjoy Le Relais’ spaciously designed terrace, ideal for dreamy bluebird ski days.

Perfect for a lunchtime pit stop with direct access to Les Santons and l’Epaule du Charvet pistes, the restaurant serves alpine-style hearty French dishes including its signature steak-frites, alongside a selection of grilled meats. Other dishes include a salad of spinach shoots flavoured with truffle oil and parmesan shavings, followed by the traditional entrecote or pan-fried salmon cooked to perfection, accompanied by French fries, of course! Le Relais also serves a selection of unmissable home-made desserts, such as tarte tatin and mousse au chocolat.

Le Piaf

Come nightfall, Le Relais transforms into the lively Le Piaf, an exciting addition to Val d’Isère’s vibrant nightlife scene.  Bedecked with red velvet benches, subdued lighting, and candles all providing a decadent nightclub-style feel.

Already an iconic restaurant in Paris, Courchevel, and Megève, Le Piaf offers refined French cuisine accompanied by an impressive list of cocktails and wine.

Le Piaf is open from 8 pm – 2 am. A shuttle will run throughout the evening between the restaurant and Airelles Val d’Isère.
