Megeve Village

Megeve is a charming and traditional resort with a strong Savoyard flavour. The centre is pedestrianised around a medieval church, and horse-drawn sleighs are a common mode of transport throughout the winter.

Megeve is a pretty village with narrow cobbled streets housing a myriad of expensive shops selling designer clothes, jewellery and antiques – so chic is Megeve that in its day it was called the 21st arrondissment of Paris. The standard of the many restaurants is second to none (La Ferme de Mon Pere has three Michelin stars and Les Flocons de Sel has two Michelin stars). There are plenty of smart hotels but there is cheaper accommodation too.

There are also plenty of other activities for sporty visitors when they’re not on the slopes – Megeve’s sports centre has a 25m indoor swimming pool, indoor tennis courts, a climbing wall and two ice-rinks (indoor and outdoor) in the centre of the village.

For visitors with a car, there are plenty of underground car parks, some of which are quite expensive so shop around to get the best prices.
