About Megève

At only one hour’s distance to Geneva, 40 min to Chamonix  and the Mont Blanc, Megève’s historical centre dates back to the Middle Ages and started it’s ascent as a prime winter sports destination in the 1920s under the patronage of the Rothschild family. It thus quickly became one of the chicest mountain villages with its sumptuous hotels, its old wood chalets, its luxury boutiques, its delightful restaurants as well as its bustling market and its famous horse drawn carriages.

The  ski area offers more than 300kms of slopes embedded in a magnificent sunny landscape, surrounded by amazing views. Between the recent investments in updating the ski lifts, the nearly 200 snow canons and the Palaisdes Sports with the Alpes’ biggest spa, the most demanding clients can delight in all levels of comfort.

Megève offers equally satisfying possibilities in summer amidst a very animated village life, numerous options to engage in the usual mountain activities but also a stellar golf course as well as horseriding.

Many events such as the Snow Polo Masters, the Snow Golf Cup, the Jumping International, the Blues festival as well as the MB Race or the classic car rallyespunctuate an active rhythm in Megèveall along the year.

Finally, the latest commercial openings (Four Seasons, Hibou Blanc) or those in the process of realisation such as the take over and renovation of the historical hotels Cœur de Megève and Soleil d’Or or the development of the  Comte Capré, a 5*  complex of close to 10’000m2, confirm investors’ confidence in Megève and reinforce its standing as the prime reference for luxury mountain destinations.
