Search the best hotels in Megève
Picturesquely located in a smooth bowl under Mont Blanc, Megève is a truly charming resort. Its old cobbled village centre is packed with traditional chalets and there's not a single big hotel - so our Guru's recommendations for the best places to stay in Megève err more towards the traditional than the contemporary.
As far as the skiing is concerned, here they boast they have something for everyone. Megève is a good choice for skiing families. There are numerous beginner runs, so first-timers aren't stuck on the nursery slopes, and there are good long runs for confident intermediates on Mont d'Arbois. This is because the skiable area is huge - 83 lifts and 325kms of piste, including some excellent off-piste areas.
Many of Megève's chalets were designed by the same architect, who borrowed design features from the town's original farmhouses, dating from when Megève was part of the Duchy of Savoy. While uniformly charming, the centre of town does have a wide choice of the best places to stay in Megève, cosy cafes and a number of good restaurants - including the highly recommended Flocons del Sel.
What not to miss
- Hike around Le Chemin du Calvaire and enjoy the wonderful views of Megève.
- Those visiting with family should definitely spend an action-packed afternoon at the Luge 4s!
- If you're here in winter then be sure to hit the slopes of Mont D'Arbois and Le Jaillet.
- Église Saint-Jean Baptiste is a pretty little church that's well worth a visit.

Megève's Traditional Treasures
