Luxury in Megeve
As one of the world’s most iconic ski resorts, Megeve is home to a series of spectacular chalets with everything you require for the ultimate Alpine escape.
Established as France’s answer to St. Moritz, Megeve offers luxury in spades, particularly when it comes to accommodation. From traditional farmhouses to prestigious properties with every mod-con you can imagine, the following chalets are some of the best in the Alps.
CHALET MA DATCHA
Picture-perfect Chalet Ma Datcha is a glorious alpine hideaway with an exclusive address in central Megeve, near the Rochebrune gondola. Three floors of luxury living showcase traditional alpine decor at its finest with intricate wooden ceilings, walls and flooring as well as beautifully crafted furniture and antiques. With seven cosy bedrooms, a cinema room and a children’s playroom packed with toys, this charming home is ideal for families holidaying together. Parents in need of a break can retreat to the spa for a massage, relax in the sauna or hammam or work off some stress in the gym. If you’re feeling brave, take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool before enjoying the mountain views from the hot tub.
Opulent by name, opulent by nature, Chalet Opulence really is one of the most exceptional properties in Megeve. Situated on the legendary Rothschild hillside of Mont d’Arbois, the chalet offers breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and all the modern comforts you could ever wish for – a cinema room, a nightclub with windows looking into a divine infinity pool and a dedicated spa floor with Jacuzzi, sauna and hammam have got both entertainment and relaxation covered. In case you needed any extras there’s also a large wine cellar and cigar room.
Located in the Cote 2000, a few minutes from Mont d’Arbois, Chalet M offers supreme contemporary comfort for up to ten guests. The main living and dining space has acres of space to relax and socialise in whilst a central fireplace creates a cosy ambiance. If you’re in need a pampering session then a Jacuzzi, sauna and hammam awaits and there’s even an indoor adjustable depth swimming pool in which the floor slowly disappears and the water rises, all at a touch of a button. If you have energy to burn you can work out in the fitness area and afterwards head for the cinema room – a perfect spot for post-exercise lounging.
For mesmerizing mountain views and ski-in access, look no further than Chalet Ararat, a brand new, high-end luxury home close to the Princesse gondola. Combining local stone and aged wood panelling with contemporary fittings and furniture, the chalet exudes elegance with bright and spacious living areas and large windows showcasing the panoramic views. With five double bedrooms and two children’s bunk bedrooms, the property is ideal for families and there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained from the home cinema and table football to a relaxation area, pool and loungers.
CHALET ONE OAK
Chalet One Oak should get prizes for its location alone, with 360° views of the Mont Blanc, the Aiguilles de Warens and the Aravis mountain range. Arguably the coolest residence in the Alps, the living space is supremely spacious with contemporary designer decor, brightly coloured furnishings and a mixture of materials including black slate, granite and marble. Six modern bedrooms are decorated in a range of colours from white to purple and golden green and all have en-suite bathrooms. The awe-inspiring views can be appreciated from a large terrace or outdoor covered hot tub.
LE CHALET DU RENNE
Conveniently located in the heart of Megeve, steps away from the church, Le Chalet du Renne is a fantastic example of stylish contemporary luxury. The sitting area with its decadent velvety sofas covered in faux fur throws and cushions, wall-mounted plasma TV, quirky chandelier and modern glass-fronted fireplace is a vision of opulence, whilst the master bedroom with its huge double bed and white fur rugs is a particularly inviting retreat after a day on the slopes. Enjoy mountain views from the hot tub on the spacious terrace or indulge yourself in the spa complete with pool and sauna.
CHALET DES FERMES
Part of the exclusive five star hotel, Les Fermes de Marie, Chalet des Fermes is a masterpiece of authenticity and top class alpine living. Exposed beams, a log fireplace and warm fabrics including furs and leathers create a haven of relaxation, full of rustic charm. Five bedrooms are spacious and cosy with unique furnishings including a faux-fur headboard. A private spa with Jacuzzi, sauna and massage table adds to the luxury and if you’re in need of further indulgence you can head to the Pure Altitude spa at the hotel.
Offering peace and quiet in the Jaillet area of Megeve, Chalet Infinity is a beautiful property with space and style in abundance. With its high ceilings, blazing fire and sumptuous sofas, the open plan living and dining area is cosy yet sophisticated and opens onto a terrace where you can admire views of the beautiful surrounding area. Four double bedrooms and a children’s dorm room make this the perfect property for families and everyone will enjoy watching movies in the extremely plush cinema room and taking a swim in the fantastic pool which looks out towards the mountains.
