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
In the past we have stayed in catered chalets with the whole family, this time as their was just the two of us with friends we decided to stay in a hotel.
We picked M as it looked the kind of place we would like to stay and have drinks with friends.
The hotel did not disappoint, our room was wonderful, a big bath for two with Hermes toiletries and very comfortable beds. The staff were attentive and went out of their way to accommodate your requests.
It was my husbands birthday whilst we were there, on the evening before we went to the four seasons for dinner presented us and our friends with a glass of champagne on the house, which we thought was a very nice touch.
The spa isn't huge, the pool quite small, but the hammam and sauna were adequate.
We only ate breakfast during our stay, its a buffet breakfast, however you can order items to be cooked, eggs, omelette, french toast etc, all good.
The bar area and chill out zones in front of the fire are very inviting.The barman is very good, I can definitely recommend the hot mojito !
We will return if we want a quick break without the kids.
Great location for the ski lift. Megeve is a village is beautiful, it has character and presence, unlike some ski resorts.
We very rarely leave reviews but after staying in Le M de Megeve frankly this is a must. My wife and I booked at long weekend skiing at the hotel through Ski Independence for our anniversary and from the moment we arrived the hotel and its impeccable staff were absolutely first class. We both travel a huge amount and this ranks right up there as some of the best service and friendly welcome we have encountered.
Congratulations and thank you to the manager Mr Garcia and his wonderful staff on making our stay so special.
We stayed at Le M De Megeve for a long weekend of skiing with a large group of friends.
Our suit had a lovely balcony overlooking the village.
The room was nice, we had a separate lounge to the bedroom, however the door couldn't open fully, so was awkward getting in and out of the bed/room. Also only one plug down the back of the bed - no bedside table on either side.
Bathroom shower screen would let water flood the bathroom every time you showered.
Hermes products in the bathroom - brilliant!!
The pool was great, good size.
Breakfast was a good, but it would have been better to have more chose or larger portions before a day hitting the slops.
A good bar for evening drinks, a nice place to chill out after a day of skiing.
Staff very friendly and helpful!
Staff here are wonderful and really ‘make’ your stay. Right balance of attentive but not intrusive. Beautiful interiors. Spa absolutely gorgeous - definitely recommend the foot massage after a long day in ski boots!
For a weekend of ski this hotel is great. Good spacious room. Toilet separated from bathroom. Not a large breakfast but good quality items. It's cozy and the general atmosphere is great. Quaint. Very good amenities too.
