Known as the fashionable choice for Parisian aristocracy, Megève is charming, elegant and traditional.
This friendly resort is full of horse drawn carts, designer boutiques, fur coats and excellent restaurants. At christmas the town lights up with the ice-rink in the heart of town acting as the town’s centrepoint.
The accommodation in Megève is mostly privately owned chalets styled in the traditional Alpine way, with many rustic boutique hotels filling the town too. With many excellent restaurants both in town and up the mountains, you will certainly eat well – try L’Alpette for lunch up the slopes and La Sauvageonne for very Swiss dinner.
The skiing is superb, perfect for intermediate skiers on family holidays, however there is plently of off-piste and cross-country skiing around for the pros, in fact, 27 miles worth of Alpine trails! To top it off, Megève is only one hour from Geneva Airport.
