Picnic areas

If you want to commune with nature then forget the mountain restaurants and learn how to picnic once again.

What you need: One rucksack full of natural foods. One carefully selected spot, preferably in the sun, and you’re all set.

What delights have you brought in your hamper? The classics, obviously - dried sausages, cheeses, hams, a bottle of local wine – and why not a home-made pie, a terrine, a traditional sausage roll, some walnut salad, a fruit tart, and some chocolate.

There are numerous places with picnic facilities around the resort, including sites at Lac de Matemale, Lac de Balcère, Lac de Calvet, and the Forêt de la Matte amongst others.

Remember to take your litter with you after having had your coffee.

So make the most of this economical solution and bon appetit!

Grilled meats up on the plateau


The legendary "hors sac" room opens its doors for the first time this summer. 
Want to enjoy the joys of barbecue and picnic?

Opening Saturday July 8 to Sunday, September 3, 2017

This spacious and comfortable room with its welcoming decor is just 150m from the cable car. It has a solarium and there are always embers glowing in the hearth.
It was built in 1970 and is a unique and wonderful little bit of paradise. Whether you're sitting in the room or out on the terrace there are magical views out across the mountains.

The ‘Jospeh Garabet’ room – or ‘Hors Sac’ room as it is more commonly known – has recently been renovated and fitted with an environmentally-friendly heating system. The embers in the two fireplaces are used to heat water which is then pumped around the radiators in the room.

And the speciality here is that you can grill anything you want - sausages, a side of bacon, Catalan onions, or whatever you fancy.
