Megève: Discover a Ski Resort of Timeless Charm

Megève, queen of the art of mountain living, welcomes you for wonderful moments. Much more than a ski resort, this is a destination with a timeless charm that will seduce you from the very outset.  The town of Megève existed long before the birth of skiing.

With snowy escapes, polar excursions and ice-skating, Megève is the ideal place for everyone who dreams of a breath of fresh air and promises you an unforgettable stay.

This year, Megève is reinventing itself to offer you a multitude of activities, from the most classic to the most unusual, to share with friends or family!

Megève, Queen of the Art of Alpine Living

Authentic and elegant, Megève will surprise and captivate you with its magic and timeless charm.

Explore the village resort, with its enchanting cobbled streets and well-preserved architecture, on foot or by traditional horse-drawn sleigh.

Much of Megève's mountain village charm is derived from its main square and the historic quarters surrounding it, with their narrow streets where fountains and wash houses, vestiges of a by-gone age, are still to be found.

Proud of its rural tradition as much as its prestigious image, Megève juxtaposes past and present with unparalleled finesse.
