In the center of Megève, a chic village in the shadow of Mont Blanc, Le M de Megève is a luxe chalet with an intimate French restaurant and a sublime spa. The property underwent a $10 million renovation by designers Jean-Noël Picot and Alain Perrier that finished in December 2013, and the interiors showcase traditional Savoyard materials (local stone, larch wood, exposed timber) alongside fancy fabrics (fur, leather, throws by local wool merchant Arpin). The overall look is cozy and contemporary and has a strong sense of place, from the crackling fire in the lobby to the stag antlers that adorn the restaurant.
Bed and Bath
The 42 rooms are typical of a rustic mountain retreat, with pine paneling and vast windows overlooking the village or the courtyard. The fabrics for the cushions, curtains and throws (in graphite, ash and bright orange) are all from Arpin, a 200-year-old local textile factory, and the thick carpets are easy on post-piste feet. All bathrooms feature dark stone and are stocked with a range of Cinq Mondes products. The Deluxe Suites are split-level and sleep up to four — a good option for families or groups of friends.
The hotel excels when it comes to gallic gastronomy. Le Salle à Manger du M (open only in the evenings) is an intimate eatery that seats just 28. The day’s menu (which features such dishes as salt-baked wild sea bass and roast pigeon) is scribbled in a Moleskine notebook, and the wine list features vintages from famous French labels as well as lesser-known vineyards. The laid-back Bistrot du M serves rustic fare and subtle variations on regional dishes all day. Finish your meal with a selection of fromage from the cheese cellar, and head to Le Bar du M for an after-dinner drink or a cigar from the cellar. The small basement spa specializes in balneotherapy (water therapy) with a counter-current swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna and a hewn rock hammam, reputedly cut from the mighty Mont Blanc.
In the Area
Megève, with its medieval cobblestone streets, is a chic Alpine village that has been dubbed the 21st Arrondissement of Paris for its posh boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. In winter it’s all about skiing; conveniently, Le M de Megève is just 100 meters from the Chamois lift. Summer pursuits include hiking, canyoning, mountain biking and golf. Or you can explore the charming streets by horse-drawn carriage and visit the village’s 13th-century church tower.
How to Get There
The M manages to find a perfect balance between 5 star service whilst at the same time remaining authentic and cozy. The venue is a wonderful mix of modern and Savoie-comfy style. The service is impeccable at all times and the location in the village and to the ski lifts is perfect.
We rented the hotel for a business event and our experience was simply amazing, the team is young and lives for the challenge, whilst delivering outstanding service. WE cannot say enough good things about the M! :)
I have just returned home from a three night stay at the magnificent M de Megève with my wife! My wife and I have stayed in numerous quality hotels in various places, including Zell am See, Lech am Arlberg and Dubai, but I must say the welcome and service we experienced at M de Megève is the best we have had.
The reception staff were great, as were all bar and spa staff we encountered.
We were welcomed with a complimentary drink then taken to our room - an upgrade to a suite, with a complimentary bottle of champagne to celebrate my wife’s birthday. This was a lovely surprise for us.
The hotel organised our ski passes and made sure our stay was great from start to finish.
The breakfasts were superb and the location of the hotel is brilliant for the town centre and the Chamois ski lift.
This was our first visit to the hotel but we’re already planning our return.
Thank you to all at M for making our stay so lovely and memorable.
We spent a week at the hotel in a junior suite. The room space is too small for a family of 4 for a 5star hotel and for the price we paid. Common areas are amazing, great spa, bar, restaurant ,...
The service can be improved substantially, st breakfast time you need to ask 2-3 times before you get what you want due to the caos. I will not repeat but the experience was ok, not align to the high end price you pay
