La Bergerie, Villard-Reculas, France

It was our last night in the chalet at Villard-Reculas. We’d cleaned out most of the food and wine at the chalet and no-one was in the mood to cook so we’d booked in at La Bergerie, a restaurant on the mountain behind the chalet. It was our chance to unwind with one final meal together before we all went our seperate ways.

La Bergerie, Villard-Reculas, France

La Bergerie has a large outside deck and a smaller inside seating area. The weather was beautiful in July and our table on the deck gave us a great view of the setting sun as it slipped below the French Alps. It did get a little cool once the sun went down.

The menu was French through and through and a number of us opted for Coq au Vin which came out in communal earthenware containers. Also included was a never ending supply of very good potato gratin. And as always the french bread to dunk in the sauce was to die for.

A majority of us opted for home made ice cream for dessert.

The wine list was great and we demolished a number of very good bottles.

It wasn’t cheap but for the quality of the food and wine, and the spectacular views it was worth the price.

If you’re in the area make sure you pop in, even if you don’t eat here.
