Ski Weekend megeve - megeve Resort Guide

undefined

Megève is one of the most chic ski resorts in France. The town was originally create by a Baronness of the famous Rothschild family as France's answer to St. Moritz. 

The town is a fantastic place to eat out, featuring exquisite restaurants and Michelen-starred chefs.  

 

Where to Eat?

Traditional French Cuisine

There are no limits to good options here as the French do enjoy their own cuisine. There are endless excellent restaurants with maybe the best-known being the Flocons de Sel with three Michelen stars. For a less wallet-busting experience a good choice is the Flocons Villages, the sister restaurant run by the same chef, Emmanuel Renault. 

 

Where to Party

There are several nightspots in the village including a jazz club and a casino which is open until 3am every night. 


What Else to do

Megève has an excellent sports centre (Le Palais) which features several pools, saunas, turkish baths, a gym and an Olympic ice rink.
