3 stars for Marc Veyrat’s restaurant
A Relais & Château restaurant run by Marc Veyrat in the village of Manigod (Les Aravis mountain range), La Maison des Bois has just been awarded 3 stars by the Michelin Guide 2018. The red guide can’t speak highly enough of Marc Veyrat’s cuisine that celebrates local nature: «He’s as creative as can be, playing on flavours and textures, celebrating loval nature (flowers, mountain herbs…) in a mineral and pastoral spread.
 
Alongside Marc Veyrat, the Flocons de Sel restaurant in Megève, La Bouitte in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville and le 1947 in Courchevel have all maintained their 3-star status.
