Fodor's Review

In a town known for block-like towers, this petite Relais & Châteaux-listed auberge stands out with its preserved wooden facade, plush lobby, and inviting fireplace. The roomy suite-apartments—great for families or large groups—have a warm feel with polished wood floors, stucco walls, balconies, fireplaces, and Jacuzzis. The elegant restaurant, L'Ours Gastronomique, draws a chic crowd, thanks to chef Franck Reynaud's superb French seasonal dishes like almond-roasted lamb with apricot reduction; book well in advance for a table. Spa L'Alpage is a prime spot to rejuvenate after a day of skiing or hiking the trails; there's even a children's spa for the 6- to 14-year-olds.
