11 Reasons to Make Megève Your Next Alpine Vacation

1. The five-star luxury of M de Megève

M de Megève finds a balance between Alpine charm and modern design. The hotel, which reopened last year after extensive renovations, now has 42 rooms and suites offering high-end comfort with a warm vibe. The downstairs bar with fireplace is the perfect place to relax après-ski, and in-house dining can be done casually at Le Bistrot or more formally at Le SoMMet du M de Megève. The Cinq Mondes-operated spa, with its gorgeous treatment rooms, hammam, sauna, and heated indoor pool, is the icing on the cake.
