Megeve

Mégève is a delightful traditional Savoyard town. The Rothschild family was instrumental in the development of this resort in the early part of the 20th century. The town has retained its air of chic elegance and it is still a firm favourite with many a discerning ski gourmet. The short transfer time from Geneva airport makes this a popular destination.

The resort is set in some of France’s most dramatic scenery, with wonderful views of the Mont Blanc massif from its various ski areas.

There is an eclectic mix of accommodation with bijou hotels sitting alongside the more traditional rustic-style chalet.

Annual winter events include the Mégève Polo Masters Tour and the Vacheron Constantin Snow Golf Cup as well as an assortment of winter sport championships hosted throughout the winter.

The town’s centre is medieval, with traffic-free cobbled streets, lined with boutique shops, excellent, highly rated restaurants and atmospheric bars. The resort is known more for its quiet sophistication than its lively après ski and boisterous nightlife; however, there are some late night jazz bars and a few vibrant clubs for those who want to continue their enjoyment into the night.

Mégève’s three different mountains open up superb ski domains that have something to suit everyone from the timid to the aficionados. The abundance of pretty tree-lined runs provides shelter when many of the surrounding resorts are forced to close.

The resort reserves some of its pistes in their pristine state to give all skiers, whatever level, the chance to enjoy fresh powder snow, without the risks of skiing off-piste.

There are a variety of chic, expensive as well as good value mountain restaurants, especially on the Mont d’Arbois.

Off mountain activities include horse-drawn sleigh rides, snow-shoeing, winter walking or taking to the skies in a hot air balloon.
