Luxury Ski Chalets in Megeve

Call 01242 547 705 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Megève is a typical chocolate-box style alpine village with accommodation that largely comprises of privately owned traditional chalets which have been built to very high standards and are in keeping with the authentic alpine style of the town. The village itself has a medieval pedestrianised centre with a 13th Century church taking centre stage. By taking any one of the narrow cobbled streets that lead from the square you will soon discover some fabulous fine dining restaurants and friendly bars, one such bar is the infamous jazz club and is a must visit. The ski area is extensive with an offering of 445 km well maintained pistes. For the beginner to intermediate skier there are plenty of long gentle greens runs and cruisy blues. For the more advanced skiers we recommend heading off with a ski guide to uncover some more challenging terrain off piste. For those not wanting to ski there are many mountain restaurants where you can just relax for hours soaking up the fresh alpine atmosphere and ambiance. The local sports centre is one of the best in a ski resort and has a beautiful indoor pool, a sauna and steam room, ice skating and a well-equipped gym.

Helicopter/Paragliding/ Hot Air Ballooning - If you fancy a bit of the high life whilst in Megeve you can pop to the local flying school and purchase either a helicopter trip or a hot air balloon trip through the mountains. For those a little more daring you can book a paragliding flight from the top of the mountain

Visit the Reindeer Farm - Take a trip to the local reindeer farm, feed them their lunch then have yours in the comfort of their yurt

Travel by horse and cart to the local farm - Be taken on a tour of the local town before heading to the local farm to try some of their locally produced cheese and meat

Cooking lessons - Having a go at cooking the local Savoyared dishes to try and impress your friends when you get home is the challenge. With a fully instructed evening and getting to eat whatever you cook it is certainly something different to do

Casino - Based in the centre of resort you could walk out very much up after your visit

Cinema - With three cinemas to choose from there is always one that is close to where you are staying. Showing some of the latest films it is a lovely cosy way to spend the evening or even a white out day

Bowling Alley - For an active indoor evening you could make a visit to the local 8 lane bowling alley. Also equipped with some vintage video games it proves to be entertaining for all the family

Nightclub - If you want to party the night away there are four different nightclubs to choose from. Many of them being open to the early hours, if you want your après to go on into the night, it certainly can do here in Megeve

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.
