The Megeve mountain resort (photo by Megeve Tourisme) is situated at 1115 m above sea level. The charming alpine town is part of the Evasion Mont Blanc region with a range of luxury chalets for rent, catered and self-catered. With its traditional rustic atmosphere and authentic medieval architecture, it seems that Megeve has always existed up there, just like the fascinating mountain scenery of smooth pastures, mystery-green forests and stunning heights all around. Megeve 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. Megeve gives access to a vast skiing area of 226 km of slopes suitable for all levels of skiers. Most of the runs are best for intermediates and beginners, but still there 23% advanced and expert skiing pistes and excellent off-piste opportunities. A modern system of 79 lifts has been established in the resort. Additional skiing opportunities are available in the neighbor resorts of Combloux and Saint-Gervais. 75 km 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.
Megeve 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, Megeve 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.
