Located in the pristine French Alps, Four Seasons Megève Collection is as chic and enchanting as the area itself, and makes the ideal home base to plan your excursions. To get you started, we asked our team – who have an insider’s view of what not to miss when visiting – for some of their favourite things to do around the hotels.

A Lakeside Picnic From Our ASSISTANT FRONT DESK MANAGER

– Cecile Naegel, Assistant Front Desk Manager

“Grab an electric fat-tire bike at the Hotel and ride to the Lac de Javen. Experience the poetry of a lakeside picnic with the Aravis massif and the peaks of the Aiguille de Varan and Aiguille Croche as a backdrop. I like to go at sunset to admire the splendor of the twilight glow gently settling on the lake.”

The snow-covered Megève Calvary just above the Mègeve village

A Cultural Climb From Our Hotel Manager

– Joachim Jacob, Hotel Manager

“The Megève Calvary just above the village is a must-do trail between the village centre and the Mont d’Arbois plateau – and the only French location listed as a European Sacred Mount and Historic Monument. Along the route, you’ll see 15 chapels and oratories recounting the Way of the Cross from Jerusalem to Golgotha. I recommend stopping to see the former home of architect Henry Jacques Le Même, who designed the Chalet Noémie at Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois, Megève, A Four Seasons Hotel.”

Reconnecting WITH NATURE FROM OUR SALES AND MARKETING DIRECTOR

– Emilie Pignol, Sales and Marketing Director

“I find that the mountain in summer is absolutely sublime, with a magnetic side conducive to letting go. My ultimate pleasure is to do an outdoor yoga session at sunrise, surrounded by awakening nature and the chirping of birds – an experience that we also offer at Four Seasons Hotel Megève.”

How Our Pastry Chef Satisfies His Sweet Tooth

– Jonathan Chapuy, Pastry Chef

“Le glaçon de Megève is a delicate praline coated with a fine meringue, and it’s perfect for teatime by the fire after a day on the slopes. For over 107 years, the Vigliengo family has manufactured those little gems. Find this inimitable taste in the village at Glaçons de Megève boutique.”

Where Our Sales Manager Goes for a Family Outing

– Michèle Andre, Sales Manager

“Surrounded by a herd of reindeer, with a breathtaking view of our mountains, live a magical moment with family or friends at Le Domaine du Coulairon. After a visit of the reindeer farm and a walk around the snowy meadows, meet the lambs inside the farm or enjoy some homemade snacks inside the traditional Finnish kota hut. Your kids will love that place!”
