Megeve combines all your dreams for a quaint French village and a retreat for the glitterati. Megeve is a magical haven and impossibly bewitching.

Megeve was built in the early 1900s after the Rothschild family determined that a French version of St Moritz should exist. Combining the talents of young architectural and ski talent, Megeve became an instant destination for those that wanted an alpine experience, but also to see and be seen in a glamorous setting.

Ideally located in the foothills of Mont Blanc and with easy access to the Geneva airport as well as Italy, the gentle slopes and temperate climate make it a lovely escape year-round. With top notch skiing in the winter with perfect conditions throughout the season, the 80 lifts and nearly 200 miles of skiable area will delight those at a beginner level and challenge those that consider themselves experts.

In the village you will find a maze of shops and boutiques, ready to outfit you in the best winter or summer gear (be sure to visit the Aallard Boutique where modern skiwear was invented), as well as shops full of antiques and high-end goods. Shopping and milling about town is a carefree adventure as it is a car-free zone and only open to pedestrians and horse drawn carriages and sleighs. As you wander among the turreted buildings, you may feel as though you’ve stepped back in time. To add even more allure to this elite destination, consider the fact Megeve has been known for its healing spas and cutting edge treatments for years. If outdoor activities are not on your agenda, Megeve has some of the finest spas in the world to pamper and revitalize you.

Warmer weather pursuits include world-class golfing and hiking, including trails that lead you to lush alpine pastures, rushing waterfalls, and even to historical chapels for you to admire.

Megeve is an amiable combination of a chic ski resort and charming French village and the perfect destination for your next Time & Place vacation. Contact us today to book your luxury vacation rental in Megeve.
