Despite being very much a traditional French village, Saint Sorlin has a fantastic choice of bars, restaurants and a nightclub as well as some excellent family activities.
Anyone looking for a lively evening should check out L’Avalanche which often has live music, fancy dress and a big old list of cocktails and wine. If the cocktails have got you in the party mood the D’sybell Club in the Plan de Moulin is open until 4am, and usually offers a free bus service (on request) for the way home.
Families eating out should look no further than Les Neiges in the village centre. They happily provide high chairs and a varied children’s menu. We love La Petite Ferme bar, great for bowling, live sport on big screens and a playroom, where kids can wear themselves out before bed while parents have a beer.
The typical Savoyard cuisine is cheese, lots of it, served hot in a variety of ways and with St Sorlin being home to Beaufort, you’ve got to have a fondue while you’re here. If you’re looking for something meatier, wander to the Auberge des Turins for an aperitif on the terrace, followed by a beautifully cooked steak.
If you’re seeking out lunch with a view, there are plenty of mountain huts around the resort. Our favourite is L’Alpes which offers some incredible panoramic views of the Aiguilles d’Arves peak. Take the Plan du Moulin Express for a lunch you won’t forget.
The resort takes relaxation seriously, so if you need those aches and pains massaged away, Harmonie is the place to visit. As well as Californian, deep tissue, Hawaiian and Swedish massages, they offer ‘make your own cosmetics’ classes!
If you need a break from the slopes, the resort has a phenomenal choice of activities that don’t require skis. Take the kids paintballing or appreciate the aerial beauty of the Alps on a paragliding trip.
