The Experience

Sip cocktails and mocktails beneath a luscious chandelier, as you gaze on snowy peaks…the view from the Rooftop Bar is magical.

The Grand Hôtel first opened its doors in 1901, and has had a terrific facelift. Rooted in the history of this ‘village de charme’, it boasts a traditional restaurant, a suave Chocolaterie, and spacious, stylish suites. Yet the feel is far from ostentatious. Maitre de Maison Thomas, with the help of a welcoming team, runs the hotel as though it were his own. What’s more, families are welcome: find baby cots, babysitters, and elegant self-catering villas.

An uber-chic ski resort since the 1920s, Megève bustles stylishly all year. Cruise the tree-lined slopes with views of Mont Blanc; feel romantic in a horse-drawn carriage through the snow. In summer, follow the Calvary Nature Trail, a route graced with decorative chapels, and a delightful outdoor restaurant on the way.

A grand old hotel in beautiful Megève, beautifully redecorated and full of character and atmosphere! I can't wait to return here in winter and sip on chocolate cocktails in the rooftop bar in my chic-est après-ski attire after a day on the slopes! It might be hard to get out of bed in the morning, as the bedrooms are truly sumptuous.

The neighbourhood

The hotel lies in the heart of Megève, world-famous retreat for the glamorous. In winter it's all about the skiing: check out Mont d'Arbois, Rochebrune and Le Jaillet. In spring and summer, take a cable car to high pastures and swap skis for bikes. The views are fabulous and the flora abundant. Botanical walks, foraging hikes and chocolate-making courses are yours for the having - ask Thomas!
