1,000 metres above sea level sits the beautifully quiet medieval town of Megeve. With picturesque untouched scenery and panoramic views, it’s no wonder many people visit the handsome town. The town hides in the magnificent Mont-Blanc region, but holds a charm of its own with a must-see historic 13th century church tower. With the cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriages, the village has a charisma that will send you back into a simpler time.
Megeve offers excellent Alpine skiing. It is in a prime location with neighbouring resorts such as Combloux and Saint-Gervais, with 226 km of pisted runs and many off-piste to be had if you like to avoid the crowds. It is a perfect winter-wonderland setting and there is plenty to offer here from paragliding, tobogganing, hot air ballooning to spas, shopping and relaxing. With the finest of restaurants, bars and clubs, the nightlife here is also extravagant and perfect for socialising after a good run.
Megeve is an idealistic skiing resort yet most underestimate its beauty in the summer. Touched by the sun, Megeve comes alive through stunning footpaths with outstanding views where solo or guided walking must definitely be experienced; walking with pack donkeys is also an interesting journey. Or if walking seems a little mundane to you, the town holds extensive golfing and canoeing facilities.
Nevertheless, with such an old-timey style of the town, it holds some of France’s most glamorous après-ski. So come and enjoy the fashionable paradise of Megeve with trips to the finest restaurants in the region and accommodation in the luxurious of hotels.
