Chalet Thanasis / Megève
Living Area: 430 m2
This 430-metre luxury chalet, in classic Alpine wood and stone construction reveals a fantastically up-to-date interior with the latest technology and design. Only completed in December 2016, Chalet Thanasis is a ski in/ski out skiing chalet that beautifully combines an opulent guest experience with the comfort, warmth and welcome of a family home. Set across four floors, and sleeping as many as eight adults and two children, the Alpine chalet Thanasis is located in the Jaillet Hill area. The historic and beautiful village center of Megève is within easy walking distance, with the ski lifts just a 10-minutes’ stroll away.
While the bright lights of one of France’s most exciting resorts are within sight as the sun goes down, this is also a place where one can be alone with one’s friends – it is both proximate and private. From the outside, Chalet Thanasis’ charms are obvious and timeless. It’s a building that could have been put up centuries ago and it fits perfectly into its beautiful surroundings. Inside, the dedication to excellence is just as evident. All of the rooms are decorated to accentuate comfort, coziness and warmth. While the chalet is new, the styling is very classic, with an emphasis on traditional materials – wood, stone, fur, leather – that create a naturally welcoming environment.
Ski in access is via the lower ground level, where a wonderfully equipped boot room welcomes you back home. A home cinema set-up in state of the art, while the bar, with its beautiful woodland views, invites you to make the most of the contents of the wine cellar. The ground floor is built around the spa and wellness area: a heated pool, sauna and gym are available to complement – and help you to recover from your winter sports activities. Outside, a hot tub takes the therapy outside, where stunning views can also be enjoyed from the large terrace that can also be accessed from the pool and the two double/twin rooms on this floor.
Level one is all about spending time together: the kids have their own playroom to go wild in, while the adults will want to spread out, relax and socialize in the large dining and living area. In classic Alpine style, huge windows bring light in and provide inspiring views out, inviting you to step out onto the terrace before returning to warm up round the two-sided fireplace. A TV nook is the perfect place to escape for some quiet time, while conversation and companionship will flourish around the circular dining table where gourmet food from your private chef is served.
Throughout, the colors are muted and tasteful, while showing inspired touches of French flair. This is certainly true on the top level of Chalet Thanasis, where the final two en-suite rooms await their lucky occupants. There is a large twin-double room with balcony, and at the top of the property is the master suite, with its own fireplace and the pick of the views – it’s a room worth fighting over. The highest standards in design, materials, finishing, facilities and service help make Chalet Thanasis one of the most exciting properties in Megève, and one that is worthy of its exclusive and sought-after situation. Winter and summer visitors can enjoy superb access to the best of the resort from a home base that shines with inspiration and added extras, from the Hermes bathroom products to the flower baskets that great new arrivals.

The Megève mountain resort is situated at 1,115m above sea level. The charming Alpine town is part of the Évasion Mont Blanc region with stunning luxury chalets for rent, catered and self-catered. Many have a swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and gym, for the very best luxury ski holidays.
With its traditional rustic atmosphere and authentic medieval architecture, it seems that Megève has always existed up there, just like the fascinating mountain scenery of smooth pastures, mystery-green forests and stunning heights all around. Megève is like a fairytale picture of old times. Narrow streets and old buildings form its enchanting medieval centre; the pedestrian zone with the horse-drawn sleighs and carriages passing only add a magical touch, almost imaginable serenity of a trip into history.
But still, the town offers infinite range of entertainment, so tourists can enjoy after returning from back-in-time. Megève at night is an experience you should not miss. 9 discos and plenty of clubs and bars create the special lively atmosphere of the nocturne town. There is a casino for those who feel "lucky tonight" and a prefect selection of various restaurants for those who prefer nice food and fine wines! In fact, Megève is known as one of the most valuable gastronomic stops of the Alps and a famous French culinary spot. During the day you could enjoy the majestic mountain landscapes from the terrace of a café, or take a traditional lunch in a cosy bistro in the medieval heart of the town.
