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 had our wedding there. The rooms are nice. The private chalets a must. Very nice spa with large swimming pool. The service has become much better and the 1 star restaurant is a must. The bistro offers an excellent price quality ratio
Stayed three nights in August 2017. Lovely hotel, friendly staff, relaxed styling. highlight is the food in both the casual and one star restaurants..both superb and worth a visit. Only downside was the room was a bit hot due to the brilliant isulation!
We stayed here 4 days in January and loved everything about it! It’s away from the noisy town and they have a fantastic shuttle bus to take and collect you up to 11pm at night.
The bedrooms are stylish and relaxing with a fabulous bathroom and loads of wardrobe space. The restaurants are great and the staff are so helpful, kind and friendly!
The spa is beautiful and relaxing and we had amazing facials too!
Can’t fault anything!! Will definitely return!
We stayed at the Alpaga for 3 nights and had the most wonderful time. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious and I was especially fond of the Le Labo products in the bathroom! It was our first time in the region and we were awed by the amazing views of this beautiful landscape.
Upon arrival, we asked if there was any possibility to move to a room with a better view. The room we had been assigned was beautiful but we were hoping for a view of Mont Blanc. The staff were very helpful and found a room for us to change to for our last night - which happened to be my birthday! The staff helped to arrange delivery of a cake and champagne sent by some friends of mine, and also wrote a beautiful note and left some complimentary skincare products in the room for me. The room was larger than our original room with beautiful high ceilings. Unfortunately we couldn't really see Mont Blanc as it snowed most of that night/day and there was heavy fog but we appreciated the effort from the team!
I would highly recommend to anyone to visit this amazing hotel - thank you team Alpaga for a wonderful stay! We look forward to joining you again sometime soon.
We were supposed to stay at their sister hotel in Val Thorens, but never got there due to bad weather and car problems. They proposed us to stay at the Alpaga instead, and we didn't regret it for one second !! The service and staff are more than worth their 5*, as well are the great restaurant, beautiful spa and big rooms with an amazing view. This was definitely one of the best hotel stays we've ever experienced. Mille merci Alpaga, we'll be back soon !
