About Megève

Nestled in a smooth bowl below Mont Blanc, charming Megève has long been amongst the most popular Haute-Savoie resort villages. Brilliant for families, the area boasts ski runs for all abilities, whilst the charming cobbled town centre and classic chalets will delight those dreaming of a traditional mountain holiday. This extends to the accommodation options, with the best places to stay in Megève including attractive chalets as well as elegant boutique hotels, perfect for couples, friends and families.

With 83 lifts and 325kms of pistes including nursery slopes, beginner runs and more challenging routes along Mont d'Arbois, this really is a top skiing destination. Expert instructors can help little ones or grown-ups to hone their skiing or snowboarding skills, before you visit reindeer farms and go sledging. Summer hikers or mountain bikers can follow Le Chemin du Calvaire and various mountain trails, whilst families will adore action-packed afternoons at the Luge 4S and picnics on the banks of the Lac de Javen. The Église Saint-Jean Baptiste and the Chapelle Sainte Anne are well worth visiting.

Pile into the town’s lively bars and restaurants in the evenings. Modelled on the original farmhouses from when the town was part of the Duchy of Savoy, the best places to stay in Megève offer a very warm welcome.
