Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal has revealed his favourite holiday destinations on the planet and included the resort of Courmayeur on the list.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, the chef said that ski holidays in Courmayeur are among the best of any winter sports destination on the planet as the area provides people with the thrills of extreme sports while also having a traditional atmosphere.

He told the newspaper: "There's a great community spirit as well as some fantastic restaurants. We usually stay at the Auberge de la Maison at the foot of Mont Blanc. It has a traditional alpine atmosphere and is almost like a chalet instead of a hotel."

Blumenthal added that the facilities there are enough to satisfy winter sports fans of all ages, particularly teenagers such as his children Joy, 13, Jessica, 15, and 18-year-old Jack.

Adrian Bridge, writing in the Daily Telegraph's travel section, recently said that Courmayeur's restaurants are almost unsurpassed when it comes to culinary excellence, boasting several Michelin stars between them.
