Luxury Hotels Megève
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 a range of luxury ski chalets for rent, catered and self-catered. Many have a swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, hammam/steam room 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 fairy picture of old times. Narrow streets and old buildings form its enchanting medieval center; 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 gives access to a vast skiing area, suitable for all levels of skiers. Most of the runs are best for intermediates and beginners, but there are still 23% advanced and expert skiing pistes and excellent off-piste opportunities.
A modern system of 84 lifts has been established in the resort. Additional skiing opportunities are available in the neighbouring resorts of Combloux and Saint Gervais Mont-Blanc. 75 kilometres of picturesque trails are at the disposition of cross-country skiers. The snow season here continues from mid-December to Mid-April with sufficient amount of snow during that time.
Megève at night is an experience you should not miss. 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 famous 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.
