A handy one hour transfer from Geneve, Magical Megeve is packed full with glamorous restaurants and often boasting excellent skiing earlier in the season, magical Megeve could possibly be the most glamorous ski resort in France. Situated in the Mont Blanc massif, it was developed in the 1920’s as direct competition to Switzerland’s super-chic St Moritz. Amazingly, it seems to have never been first choice for us Brits, instead welcoming the aristocratic crowd from Paris each year, who flock there for its charm and tranquil surroundings. Now word has got out, it’s not quite so quiet. It’s recently seen the renowned party mecca – La Folie Douce – rise up in town and the nightclubs now attract some seriously chic clientele. But with some of the best hotels in the Alps, reliably excellent restaurants and endless tree-lined pistes, we’re ready to let the secret out.
HOTEL MONT BLANC
Ideally located near the Place de l′Eglise in the heart of the village, the Hotel Mont Blanc provides the ideal location to enjoy Megève boasting ski out convenience. It is home to one of the most illustrious spas which draws its influence from the beauty of the mountains exuding a glacial theme. The hotel also has a small indoor pool, sauna and steam room. The famous restaurant Les Enfants Terribles is known for its fantastic food but they also have The Tea Shop which offers delicate pastries and exceptional hot chocolates and teas. From 6pm, The Champagne Bar offers a selection of the finest champagnes, to taste with caviar and foie gras.
Alpaga offers 22 bedrooms, two restaurants (a bistrot and a Michelin starred restaurant) and La Colline Spa. All just a handy 5 minutes’ horse and carriage ride from the heart of the village. With a fantastic view of Mont Blanc, Alpaga offers a picture-perfect backdrop from its traditional chalet mixed with contemporary furnishings. La Colline Spa is a welcome retreat after a tough day on the slopes. With a dark stone pool, two treatment cabins, fitness centre and Scandinavian hot tub and sauna, this is the perfect mountain getaway.
