The Alpine Specialist guide to Megeve, France
The ski resort
The pretty cobbled streets of the chic ski village of Megève appeal to both skiers and non-skiers. Renowned for its luxury hotels, Michelin-starred restaurants and boutique shops the Savoyarde village has a refined, quiet charm. Just one hour's drive from Geneva airport it is popular for ski weekends as well as longer winter holidays. The ski resort of Chamonix is also only 30 minutes away by road: Les Contamines, Combloux and St Gervais are closer still.
Skiing in Megeve
Megève’s ski area extends over three mountains of Rochebrune, Mont d’Arbois and Jaillet. The area offers the greatest variety of runs for intermediate skiers with some beautiful, long tree-lined descents. Lunch on the mountain is also enjoyable with a number of excellent Savoyarde restaurants to choose between. Megève’s off-piste is generally over-looked and it is often possible to find untracked powder days after a snowfall.
Summer in Megeve
Megève is chocolate-box pretty in the summer with lush green meadows and flower-decked chalets. It has a longer summer season than some other French resorts. Activities include lake and pool swimming, golf and tennis and some excellent hikes. Hot-air ballooning is another popular pastime.
