La Fruitière des Perrières’ is a family run artisanal cheese shop and restaurant that was first created in Les Gets a hundred years ago.
You will only find homemade artisanal products, or products carefully chosen by the team from the local region at La Fruitière des Perrières.
Every morning, the milk from Les Gets arrives at the dairy and is transformed by the master cheesemaker at La Fruitière des Perrières into Abondance, Tomme des Gets, Raclette, Blue, the list goes on… And it’s not just cheese, there’s also butter, cream, yoghurt, fresh milk, jam and honey.
We particularly love their cream, myrtille sauce and mini meringues for the most amazingly tasty dessert! Check out Dani’s recipe on the LOVOVO blog here.

The restaurant at La Fruitière des Perrières
During the modernisation of the dairy in the early 1990’s, the old cheese-ripening cellars were transformed into a unique restaurant. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is excellent. No shortage of cheese in this place! Fondues and raclettes are the name of the game here. Please note that there is no children’s menu so if your little ones are not into cheese then probably best avoided.
La Fruitière des Perrières is very popular so reserve ahead of time to avoid disappointment. The restaurant is open from July to August and then from Christmas week to Easter.
