A MILLIONAIRE experience in the most chic resort in the French Alps need not break the bank . . . although you could bend it a bit. The outside, sun-trap terrace of Le Tremplin in the heart of Courchevel in the Trois Vallees is one of the places to see and be seen as you take a coffee during the day, but the place comes into its own at night. It specialises in seafood and you can select your own lobster or crayfish from the spectacular glass aquarium tank in the restaurant while enjoying pre-dinner drinks and canapes, or just trust the splendid menu, with very civilised, reasonable prices. A simple pan-fried sole is a superb alternative to the expensive exotica, filleted for you at the table and served with panache, as was the spicy steak tartare enjoyed by a companion, accompanied by local wines that were surprisingly good and well-priced. At the other end of the spectrum, you could pay 3,500 euros for a jeroboam of Cristal Roederer Champagne, or even 22,000 euros for a Louis XIII Rare Cask cognac, but that’s for another day maybe. The seafood specials enjoyed by three chaps on the next table must have been good, too, but what they paid was perhaps reflected in the tip . . . they left 70 euros, which was about the same cost as our meal. Salut.
