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
A very comfortable hotel within close walking distance to town centre; the front of house staff are very attentive and the dining room is a little gem.The bedrooms are very comfortable most of which have been recently refurbished.
We’ve stayed here three times visiting our son who is studying in the region. Megeve is a wonderfully charming town and the hotel is comfortably situated a short walk from everything while not still being away from the noise and commotion of town. It’s also convenient for skiing with a free bus that stops a block away to take you up to the Rochebrune gondola (and close enough to walk back down the hill after skiing if you don’t feel like taking a bus).
Once you’ve decided to stay in Megeve this hotel is a brilliant choice. It’s now the only place we would stay. Far cheaper than the ultraluxury hotels like the Four Seasons but perfectly comfortable, elegant, and attractive.
The rooms are beautiful and all recently renovated with rustic wood finishes. Beds and linens are quite comfortable. We once stayed in a room with an attic bedroom attached which was perfect for our son.
Lobby is delightful with a fire going during the winter (per the hotel’s name) and comfy couches.
Restaurant downstairs is superb.
Front desk staff is great, especially the ubiquitous Cecilia who went above and beyond to attend to us (expertly making us reservations and changing them as our plans changed).
The only trick is getting reservations as lots of people now know about this gem.
Fantastic hotel, friendly and welcoming. The team went above and beyond to help us book lessons, and also find the right slopes for us to visit.
Very close to the centre of Megeve and also the bus stop for the ski bus. Breakfast was lovely, dinner in the restaurant was beautiful. Highly recommend!
We travelled two families on skiing holiday in Megève and stayed 7 nights at "Au Coin du Feu". We arrived late in the evening but were still served a wonderful cold meal in front of the open fire. Welcome was warm and staff generally very helpful in providing guidance regarding the ski system and restaurants. Our family of four stayed in a family room in the part of the hotel that has not yet been renovated. It was a decent size and full of charm. We were a bit worried that the room would feel dated but we left thinking that they instead should take care to preserve that lovely atmosphere and old world charm when renovating these rooms. The common areas on the ground floor are perfect for socializing in the morning at breakfast, after ski, and for lounging with a drink in the evening. We had several of our dinners in the hotel restaurant St Nicholas and we were all very happy with the quality of the food, service and surroundings. The hotel also has a very pleasant spa area. The hotel is well situated only a few minutes from the city centre. It is possible to walk to the main lifts, a 400 m walk, but there is a bus stop close to the hotel and buses run every 20 mins.
All-in-all we has a very pleasant experience at "Au Coin du Feu"! FYI we booked directly with the hotel.
We visited in early fall and arranged to have a package sent to us before we arrived. Superb service on this and in every other way.
The hotel restaurant wasn’t open every night and we were given good recommendations. Our dinner in the hotel restaurant (when opened) was top notch. Breakfast was also excellent.
The design and execution of the design of our room and its amenities was traditional yet very modern. Our room had a partial view of Mt Blanc, a comfortable seating area, a terrace and a modern as well as a roomy bathroom.
Of course the hiking and natural environment is fabulous.
Our stay in Megeve and this hotel was a highlight on our trip.
