Nothing refreshes quite like a deep breath of crisp mountain air, and where better to fill your lungs than the stunning Mont Blanc massif, in the French Alps? Megève makes for a marvelous mountain base, owing to its charming medieval center, peppering of upscale boutiques and endless list of things to do. During the sunny summer months, you can explore the mountains by bike, have a round or two of golf, horse ride, trek, white-water raft, or head to the skies with an unforgettable hot-air-balloon ride – it’s all available in the area.
Au Coin du Feu is an authentic Alpine chalet, with wooden walls, natural stones and cozy colors creating a pleasing ambience throughout. Your guest room comes with a balcony, affording you impressive views over the mountains, and there’s an on-site spa on hand, ready to lull you into utter relaxation. The hotel’s restaurant, Le Saint-Nicolas, prides itself on traditional Savoy specialties, as well as weekly barbecue nights and a tempting set-menu dinner.
How to Get There
Great hotel-chalet, nice room and delicious breakfast buftet. Very nice and professional staff. We had a wonderful weekend in a charming village Megève, thank you. We will be back for sure. Thank you. Arnaud & Muriel
Second visit in two months as our son is studying nearby. We have no reason to look at any other hotels when returning to the area — Au Coin Du Feu is perfect.
We love the wood paneled rooms which are a hybrid of rustic and modern and very comfortable. Beds are delicious and we slept like logs as everything is super quiet (I don’t just mean freedom from the usual hotel noises like neighbors or elevators opening and closing ... I mean zero hum from background motors and no distant traffic sounds. The hotel is in the midst of town but it is genuinely silent at night. I’m a finicky sleeper and really appreciated this).
The staff are friendly and competent and willing to do little things like store in their refrigerator the cheese that we bought to bring home (try doing that at some big hotel in the US!).
The restaurant is superb — make a reservation in advance. (Note: it is only open a couple nights a week, at least during the off season).
Comfortable lobby lounge and great location walking distance to everything. You can park behind the hotel for free if you get lucky and find a spot. Otherwise there are other options a bit further away.
The hotel (at least in the off season, when we visited) had no overnight reception so you’re on your own to use a code to get into the building after 11pm which was no problem for us.
We have also fallen in love with Megeve and enjoyed strolling from the hotel into the main town square, a very pleasant walk.
Overall a wonderful value and great find. Can’t recommend more highly!
Very nice quirky hotel with pleasant rooms individually decorated and in a good location.
When we ate in the hotel the food was good, a few hiccups in the bar service and getting a gin and tonic seemed a step to far otherwise very nice.
Loved my stay in this hotel.Staff is friendly, the room is comfortable and nicely decorated.Makes the atmosphere of the hotel very authentic.Appreciated the location very close from the city center of Megève.Was there for business but I could come back for holidays
Ai Coin du Feu is one of those beautiful French hotels with welcoming staff, exceptional breakfasts, a lovely terasse , quaint perfectly equipped room all in the picturesque village of Megeve. THIS is why everyone travels to France. We dined in the hotel but plenty of choices in Megeve. Our dinner was innovative at times and served with warmth & as always - a will paced dining experience with great wine. Parking was easy because the hotel but a bit tough when we arrived late at night. I will warn you that we booked through Chase Ultimate Rewards and they ran the booking through Expedia that didn’t 1) give the room we had booked & paid for & 2) didn’t share our phone number which meant when our Swiss air flight from Zurich arrived 2 hours late in Geneva the proprietors could not contact us - they only had the closed Expedia number - and had to wait up for us . The room was fine but Expedia & Chase won’t be on our list in the future.
