Long a fashionable choice of the beau monde, the authentic bonhomie of Megève is complimented by winter white vistas of the Haute-Savoie and the spectacular Mont-Blanc. Megève’s partly pedestrianised centre exudes old town charm, horse drawn sleighs touring cobbled streets lined with designer boutiques, tea rooms and galleries attracting skiers and non-skiers alike. An open-air ice rink and medieval church complete the picture-perfect scene. On the mountain, a high-energy slope-side party awaits skiers at 2000m courtesy of La Folie Douce while back in town a laid back après-ski scene prevails with sophisticated wine bars, cocktail bars and a jazz club. There is a relaxed feel to the skiing, which encompasses the areas of Mont d’Arbois, Rochbrune and Le Jaillet – a total of over 300 kilometres of piste including some enchanting woodland runs and cruisy blues and reds. Intermediate skiers will be spoilt for choice across all three areas while beginners can progress from the nursery slopes to enjoyable easy green runs. Views up to Mont Blanc are simply breathtaking, as is the off-piste skiing for advanced skiers. High quality mountain restaurants are abundant making slope-side dining a delight.
