Since 2013, two institutions have featured strongly on the Marseille gastro-scene: the famous Bonne Mère and Une Table, au Sud, a gourmet restaurant located in the Old Port which was taken over four years ago by Ludovic and Karine Turac. While Ludovic is at the stoves having learned his trade alongside the very best, Karine admirably juggles front of house and the role of head sommelier. The menu showcases Mediterranean-style cuisine with a liberal twist, where fish reigns supreme, leaving ample place centre stage for the celebrated meats of the Southern Alps. The restaurant even offers gourmet picnics to hit the spot before a refreshing dip in the sea. A tried and tested destination for those appreciating the good things in life !
Picture the scene: just an hour’s drive from Oslo, a luxury hotel surrounded by breath-taking mountains. The Norefjell Ski & Spa welcomes lovers of the great outdoors in an exceptional setting. Skiing is a must, or guests can try their hand at a rich programme of outdoors activities from fishing, canoeing and kayaking to bike rides and even a 16m-high climbing wall. The luxury spa and indoor swimming pool allows guests every chance to recharge their batteries before savouring classic Scandi cuisine in the hotel restaurant. The ultimate Nordic retreat immersed in this most natural of settings.
Forget everything you think you know about ferries! Brittany Ferries is offering a new take on channel crossings with the emphasis firmly on cruising. Every crossing is a chance to savour tip-top service, including an irresistible range of gourmet options. In addition to the classic café, the company’s eight ships offer a more sophisticated à la française restaurant experience. What better way to start a holiday in style than these exceptional surrounds to satisfy passengers’ spirit of adventure. A dream journey taking in magical destinations including Great Britain, France, Spain and Ireland.
The dizzy heights of dining in a piste-basher cum food truck. The wild idea of Sacha Abadie at La Mongie, which offers top-notch fast food in nothing less than a converted piste-basher. The idea was developed from start to finish and authentically Pyrénées-made by the Abadies, owners of the iconic Étape du Berger. Skiers enjoy top-notch burgers or tasty tapas while soaking up the sun’s rays.
And even higher still, at the Pic du Midi, the eponymous restaurant can be found offering panoramic views over the Pyrénées. The brasserie menu is an array of enticing local ingredients prepared on the premises and served within touching distance of the stars. A taste of tradition in total freedom.
