Luxe designer digs near Megève’s historic heart. The exterior may look like a traditional Alpine chalet, but the interiors are more sleek urban crash pad than ski resort chintz. Chill-out tunes play throughout the taupe and cream communal areas, which are decorated with giant lamps, squishy low-slung sofas, oversize vases of flowers and flickering modern glass fireplaces. And the large picture windows offer panoramic views of Mont Blanc.
Bed and Bath
All 27 guestrooms and suites have either a private terrace or a balcony with a view of the mountains. The minimalist snow and beige color scheme is accented by dove-gray stained pine walls and charcoal-gray faux fur cushions and throws. The square-edged granite bathrooms are generously stocked with Hermès toiletries during the winter season.
Dine on fancy French fare at the Michelin-starred La Table de l’Alpaga, overseen by Christophe Schuffenecker, or tuck into a burger or salad at the laid-back eatery L’Onyx. The superb La Colline spa offers every permutation of Swiss precision skincare and features an indoor pool as well as a hammam. There’s also an outdoor wooden Swedish hot tub plus a sauna that can fit 12 people, both strategically positioned to maximize the soaring mountain views.
In the Area
Megève is the St.Tropez of the ski slopes, attracting a glittering, old-money crowd of fur-coated French visitors in the winter. The skiing is extensive and scenic, if rather unchallenging and sometimes unreliable because of the relatively low altitude. The summer draws a younger set, who come to the mountains for hiking, whitewater rafting, and rock climbing in nearby Chamonix. The restaurants in town are rather pricey and but authentically French. The Brasserie Centrale does excellent brasserie staples (entrecote frites, crème brûlée) while Le Vieux-Megeve is the place for cheesy specialities. Après-ski it’s low-key, but head to 5 Rues for subdued late night jazz and a few slinky cocktails year-round.
How to Get There
We go twice a year to Alpaga. It is still excellent but the Chef is sometimes too creative and as the choice of main is only between two , it can make the choice difficult if you do not like combination of meat and giblets.
We enjoyed the beautiful rooms and view, breakfast outdoors, open fire at night. Very personal, perfect service all the time. Nice architecture, lounge area. Price for the rooms was high but still ok for what you get. Beverages were certainly beyond what we find acceptable. May be management should consider to make summer prices for f&b, too.
I hesitated to classify this hotel as silent. You will hear the main street when you sleep with an open window.
We were looking for somewhere special to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we sure found it. Tucked away just minutes from Megeve with stunning views, beautiful setting and a highly attentive team that understand how to deliver the true meaning of customer centric.
The walk into Megeve is just 10mins and the views make every moment worth it, the hotel also provide a free shuttle should you not feel like a leisurely stroll.
Every member of the guest team had that perfect balance being the formality of a five star hotel and the friendliness that makes you feel more like family and less like guest. That’s hard to achieve but guys you achieve it so well.
The room was beautifully appointed, breakfast wonderful, views amazing and evening dinner divine. Morning coffee overlooking the mountains and watching the paragliders....stunning.
Thank you for the extra touches including the early morning lift for our hot air balloon flight, we really did appreciate that.
We look forward to staying with you again and our regards to all the team.
