One of world’s preeminent ski destinations, Megève is set among the snow-capped peaks of the Haute-Savoie Alpine range, while facing Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain. Founded in the 13th century and transformed into an exclusive ski resort by the Baroness Noémie de Rothschild in the 1920s, this small French town has become known for sophisticated luxury in a discreet, understated atmosphere. Megève features a pedestrian-only medieval centre with cobblestone streets, designer boutiques and excellent restaurants. Adding to Megève's appeal, the surrounding slopes are some of the world’s most scenic for skiing.
Some say Megève is busier in summer than winter – with golf, hiking, biking, paragliding, kayaking and much more.
