Just in time for the ski season and like an early Christmas present, Four Seasons has gotten us really, really excited by opening one of its most panoramic properties yet. The town of Megeve is a place of charm and sophistication for those who want an unspoiled and idyllic mountain getaway. It boasts over 130 Alpine runs and this hotel has a lot of firsts to offer to the destination.
- This will be the first hotel with direct access to the Mont d’Arbois slopes, with the fifty five room hotel being perched right into the mountainside.
- It will be the first hotel in town to offer a ski concierge, who will have all of your gear ready to go and waiting for the moment in which you will take off for the slopes.
- It will be the first hotel in town to offer a ski valet, who will carry your gear from the hotel right to the lifts.
The hotel is one which will combine the opulence of the French tradition of hospitality with the exclusivity of a mountain retreat. Rooms look very earthy, with lots of wood and stone. Suites have a separate room with a fireplace and there is an on call service to have the fire lit and prepared in your room hassle free any time you want to cozy up.
There will be five restaurants on site which are a perfect complement to the town’s already stacked culinary offerings. A delightful spa is the perfect place to rejuevenate oneself whether from the stresses of everyday life or the active challenges of the surrounding slopes.
Speaking of spectacular outdoor slopes, the town of Megève’s has so much going for it. As a truly year round destination it has several Michelin-star restaurants, classic Alpine architecture, and pedestrian only cobblestone streets that create a sense of place with the backdrop of a striking natural landscape. Alpine adventure is the number one thing visitors here are in search of with things like skiing, heli-skiing, dog sledding, glacier snowshoeing, and 19 miles of cross-country skiing trails, snow golf, the hotel will have a world class new golf course too.
The hotel’s outdoor pool is a draw any time of the year. It can be heated, it has wonderful massage jets and underwater music for those who’d like to listen. Fitness facilities are top notch too with the best and newest equipment.
This is a year round playground hotel, truly something that makes us want to get back to France pronto! The closest airport is actually Geneva which is around an hour away. Most folks arrive there and take hired transfers or rent a car as there are many car parks available outside the medieval center.
