Megève is a typical village of Haute Savoie which will definitely leave you with a lasting impression. Nestled at the heart of the Pays du Mont Blanc (near Chamonix), in a magnificent setting, steeped in extraordinary history and heritage, Megève is far-removed from a stereotype resort. An ambassador for local gastronomy revisited by Michelin-starred chefs, it is a marvellous destination at any time of year with everyday local life punctuated by cultural and sporting events. Megève has the charm of a thriving mountain village with a long history, centred round its main medieval square with narrow streets, tiny squares enhanced with fountains and wash pools.
The charm of the village is unquestionable and so is the beautiful scenery which surrounds it. Bordered by three mountain ranges with gentle slopes and leafy forests, Megève is a land of natural contrasts to delight nature lovers.
The Cirque de la Cote 2000 and Aiguilles Croches just above the village add to the sense of a preserved, unspoilt, natural landscape which can be enjoyed at any time of year.
Megève also reflects the charm and elegance of a prestigious ski resort against the backdrop of Mont Blanc. It is a genuine Savoie village with a rich history and wonderful inhabitants. The Megève ski area, between 1,113m and 2,350m altitude, includes Combloux, Jaillet-Christomet, La Giettaz, Cordon, Saint-Gervais and Saint-Nicolas : 83 ski lifts, 173 pistes totalling 325km and 33km of superb trails for classic cross-country skiing or ski skating.
The ski area covers several mountains and is a combination of ski slopes, forests, alpine farms and sunny terraces offering winter sports for all.
