Megeve (Megève) is situated about 10 km off the main road from Geneva to Chamonix and is one of the most chic villages that one could hope to come across. Megeve is part of the Evasion Mont Blanc ski area. As well as the full range of facilities associated with a village that is bustling with visitors all year, there are many other facilities e.g. a large sports complex, outdoor pool, horse drawn taxis, many quality restaurants and some excellent designer shops in an atmospheric pedestrian area. There are three main ski areas; Mont D'arbois, Rochebrune and Le Jaillet, which offer 445 km of pistes and are served by 111 lifts. With the resort being relatively low, much of the skiing at Megeve (Megève) is on beautiful tree-lined slopes with picturesque views of the surrounding mountains. Not to be missed is the view of Mont Blanc from the excellent value restaurant at the top of the Bachais chairlift, in Le Jaillet area. It is a great advantage to have a car to reach the ski access points as the buses can be very busy during peak periods but be aware that snow chains are required in winter. The village of Megeve (Megève) retains a very French feel unlike some of the resorts which have succumbed to the invasion of the Brits, this can be seen as a plus or a minus depending on one's viewpoint.

Resorts close to Megeve include: Praz Sur Arly (5 km), Combloux (6 km), La Giettaz (8 km), Flumet (9 km), Saint Gervais (10 km),

Visitor Reviews of Megeve

Ceriusski from United Kingdom writes:

Charming resort with mostly lower tree lined pistes. Because of the low altitude, snow cover can be unreliable. This year, numerous acknowledged requests for the lift opening dates produced no answers. Mainly, there wasn't any snow and the 'Tourisme' won't admit that. A few years ago, Megeve was voted the worst lift system in France; nothing much has changed. Neighbour, St. Gervais, has made several improvements with 3 x 6 seat chairlifts. Megeve's answer to progress is to charge for parking everywhere. This encourages you to shop in other towns only 10-20 mins away. The lift system is losing money each season so investment looks unlikely. At least there is a new mayor, so things can only improve.
