Megeve

Luxury Chalets in Megeve

Only 1 hour from Geneva and 40 min to Chamonix and the Mont Blanc, Megève has a medieval heart, but it was, in a way, the original purpose-built French ski resort – conceived in the 1920s by the Rothschild family who spent their holidays there. Multiple Michelin-star restaurants, historic Alpine architecture, and winding cobblestone streets have established Megève as a destination known as much for its gastronomy and cultural richness as for its striking natural landscape. Megève’s charming old centre is car-free and comes complete with an open-air ice rink, horse-drawn sleighs and quiet cobbled streets. Famous for its fashion boutiques, the jewellery, antique, gift and delicatessen shops and cafés add to the chic atmosphere.
