You will find many reasonably priced restaurants at Chantemerle. La Cabassa for pizza and pasta dishes or Loup Blanc for traditional local food are two of the best. Sun worshippers could try L'Arbre a Pain, an excellent lunchtime suntrap. In Villeneuve, La Marotte is the place to be for fine French cuisine, or head for La Pastorale for specialities cooked on an open fire. For a really special treat, try the excellent La Bidulle fish restaurant.
This is not a party resort, with nightlife limited to local bars and the occasional very Gallic disco. Le QG in Chantemerle, Le Bab Bam and La Baïta in Villeneuve are the main focal points. Le Lièvre Blanc in Villeneuve is a riders' hangout with weekly live music. Le Yeti in Chantemerle is strongly recommended, whilst Bar Alpin is said to have a great atmosphere, as has the Bar Le Que Tal.
In Chantemerle and Villeneuve you will find a fitness centre with sauna, Jacuzzi and gym and an ice skating rink. For the more adventurous in Villneuve, parapenting is available as well as the floodlit ice driving circuit.
