Why Choose Megève for a Luxury Ski Holiday?
Founded in 1916, Megève is truly a traditional winter sports resort, attracting the most discerning travellers for superb skiing and winter holidays. The surrounding ski area is expansive and well-groomed, great for easy cruising, while off-piste opportunities are great after heavy snowfall. The local Evasion Mont Blanc ski pass covers all the local Megève skiing plus the neighbouring resort of Les Contamines, Saint Gervais and Saint Nicolas de Véroce, while the incredible Mont Blanc Unlimited ski pass also covers the whole of the nearby Chamonix valley, Courmayeur and Verbier.
The charming car-free resort boasts a medieval centre that is great for exploring, home to narrow cobbled streets, bustling squares, art galleries, boutique shops and alpine architecture. Plenty of mountainside bars mean you'll never be stuck for an après-ski venue, while the village also boasts seven Michelin stars across several restaurants, along with more traditional French eateries.
