A Spotlight on Megeve

Whether you are looking for exhilarating skiing in a fabulous resort, or a laid-back luxurious break surrounded by the beautiful mountains, Megeve could be the perfect place. This stunning village is a true Alpine gem; just 45 minutes from Geneva, it is an historic village that leapt to fame when the Rothschild family invested in it, and it became the prime destination for the French aristocracy. Today, it remains one of the most famous and exclusive ski resorts in the world.

The centre of the town is dominated by a huge Christmas tree decorated with Swarovski crystals, which is present all year round, and the streets are lined with boutiques and champagne bars. The ski area, Domaine Évasion Montblanc, comprises 445km of slopes of all difficulties, heliskiing and glacier skiing, as well as a number of cross-country skiing trails, meaning there is plenty to explore for all abilities.

Off the mountain, Megeve features some of the more unusual winter sports, such as snow golf (with orange balls, so they can be found!), the Megeve Polo Masters tournament played on snow, dog-sledding and the unusual Nordic sport of Skijoring. Not for the faint-hearted, this sport involves skiers being pulled by a rider-less horse; certainly a spectacle, if not an activity many would sign up for!

This fabulous mountain escape has something for everyone, and is not to be missed! Call the Elegant Address Ski team today and let us find the Luxury Address for you!
