Food is worthy a Michelin star. Hotel is an amazing 5 star. Megeve is a very charming local...ski area nearby though is old/outdated/not challenging. The real ski area is in Chamonix, about 45 minutes by car.

A beautiful and well appointed hotel. The rooms are magnificent and the food is sublime. A full service Spa facility that is a wonderful spoil after a day out skiing. Perfectly located within walking distance from the main town area. An easy drive from here...More
