One of our favourites, on the home run, is Plan Boé. Here you will be welcomed by lederhosen attired bar folk, Oompahing jovially to the music in traditional Apres Ski style! Or, after you’ve had a hot shower, it would be rude not to slip over the road to Bar Heidi for a relaxing tipple… A chic little bar run by a traditional Italian family. What more could you want!
