Is your family ready for something a little different next seaon? Megève, France should be at the top of your list!
Located an easy one-hour drive from Geneva, Megève is teeming with rustic-chic chalets, designer boutiques and charming cobblestone streets.
And oh yeah – the skiing is pretty epic!
Long considered a summer destination, this sleepy agricultural hub boomed as a ski destination later than other resort areas in the Alps thanks to the Rothschild family who put it on the map. Megeve has retained character and charm many other European ski areas have lost.
On the slopes we love to arrange private ski guides who can show you the best runs, both on and off piste, and direct you to the best on-mountain dining – always a highlight for those of us who have not enjoyed a European ski trip before! There simply is no comparison between the Europe and North American culinary on-mountain scene.
And don’t pass up the opportunity to try cross country skiing, winter hiking, ice skating, ice climbing, curling, dog sledding, snow shoeing, fat bikes, or even electric snow bikes!
Megeve is also considered the French capital of “art de vivre” in the mountains (thanks to Baroness Noémie de Rotschild), and has no shortage of Michelin-starred chefs, elegant boutiques, wellness centers and glamorous nightlife. Ski trip perfection!
At Videre Travel, curating unique experiences is always top of mind and we have SO many options in Megeve. But here is one of our favorites! Alpage de Pré Rosset is an authentic farm dating back to 1853 that has been completely renovated. The views of Mont-Blanc and the Aiguilles Croches are spectacular.
After a day of skiing, we arrange to have this pristine location closed to the public and Michelin star Chef Julien crafts a meal just for you.
You will arrive by snowmobile (it is not accessible by car) and welcomed into the chalet to warm up by the large fireplace before enjoying one of the best meals of your life. Amazing right?
