    The resort

    Quirky, chic and traditionally French, Megéve is an iconic ski resort that exudes class. Born in the 1920s out of an attempt by the French to win over skiers from Switzerland’s ritzy Saint Moritz, Megéve is, essentially, the original purpose built French ski resort that remains an ideal option for  those seeking a relaxing weekend escape to the French Alps. Rather unsurprisingly, this is a classy resort and the cobbled streets of Megéve have retained their French charm resulting in a well preserved, highly fashionable and aesthetically pleasing town centre.

    Bursting with character and often bathed in sunshine, Megéve is certainly a great option for those wanting to holiday in a ski resort that offers an authentic French atmosphere as well as some scenic and fairly extensive skiing.

    Megéve is very well suited to non-skiers who can lose themselves in a myriad of designer shops, terrific restaurants and quirky jazz bars. Furthermore, with plenty of off snow entertainment available including horse drawn sleigh rides, indoor and outdoor ice rinks and a highly rated spa, Megéve is a ski resort that certainly caters for all.
