Les3Vallees has a new cafe by the station in Moutiers to welcome weary travellers.

Here it is - the new & modern station cafe opposite Moûtiers-Salins-Brides-les-Bains.

Located opposite the train station, Les 3 Vallées Café will be the first and last stop for visitors travelling through the ski area.

And was it the season to open.

Last week heavy snow in the Savoie meant that holidayers were stuck in the valley for up to 26 hours.

Roads were blocked, affected by the extreme weather, and many of the resorts were unreachable.

The cafe worked 24 hours on this snowy Saturday from 6am through to Sunday 6am so visitors had somewhere comfortable to stay.

Good work!

PlanetSKI passed through on a less busy Saturday, 13th and took a look at the modern newcomer.

The cafe is all about the food; Quality Savoie region products and ingredients.

Then there's 3V beer, coffee, board games, free wifi.

What more do you need from a cafe?

I have just sampled it as I took the snow train to the Alps.

Check out the video from inside at the end of this film:


The perfect location:

At the front door to the ski area, the café will be "an ambassador" for Les3Vallées.

Seven out of 10 winter holiday-makers visiting Les3Vallées arrive by train, whether it is TGV, Eurostar, Thalys...

And so the cafe intends to make travelling life a little more enjoyable.

A warm welcome on entering the world's biggest ski area!

... Or a nicer experience waiting for a train on the sad day of leaving.

The cafe is in partnership with Nespresso, so that pretty much explains the coffee.

What's on the menu?

The products are from the Savoie region, as much as possible.

The "refreshments" menu includes hot sandwich baguettes and the exclusive "Hunger Breaker" with melted Savoie cheese - a complete "Gargantu'Alpes!"

And 'cos it's so good we're going to describe it some more...

This 'premium' sandwich is on organic, multi-grain bread baked by a local artisan baker.

Seasonal local vegetables make up the filling, alonh with - a rough - 260g of minced beef and a choice of grated Savoie cheeses.

And then there's the artisanal sauces on top of all this.

It's a new kind of fast food.

But the main thing to say? Generous portions. Yes!

The café will serve Les 3 Vallées beer.

Beer, big sandwiches, healthy and locally sourced food. That's it in a nutshell.

"Les 3 Vallées Café will be an amazing oasis that reflects Les 3 Vallées' style and philosophy: cool, cheerful, elegant and offering holidaymakers, whether they're on their way in or out, a 100% Les3Vallées experience before they climb to the peaks or set off home," it promises.
