Megeve Resort Information

Conceived in the 1920s as a French alternative to Saint-Moritz, Megève was the first purpose-built resort in the Alps.  

Megève is one of the best resorts in the Alps for non-skiers. The town has a beautifully preserved medieval centre - now pedestrianised - with narrow cobbled streets, tastefully restored buildings, a pretty church, horse-drawn sleighs, a weekly market, an open-ice rink and plenty of marked paths for walkers.

There are lots of shops in Megève – smart clothing, jewellery, food, antique and gift shops. The choice is endless - so much so that if you can’t ski you could do a lot worse than wander round town window-shopping. In short, Megève is a resort to taste the classic French 'art de vivre'.

In Mont-Blanc country, Megève is very easily accessed from Sallanches (13 km - motorway exit and TGV train).

Megève is renowned for its spectacular scenery and has bags of traditional character.

Peak Retreats features self-catered apartments Lune d'Argent in Megeve. Built in the Savoyard chalet style, these comfortable apartments provide an ideal base for a Megeve ski holiday.
