Perched just above the Haute-Savoie village, the medieval style square is only moments away. Megève is a traditional Haute-Savoie village that cultivates the charm of a true radiant village, flourishing around its main medieval style square, with its old districts and narrow pedestrian only streets. It boasts an impressive gastronomic scene (almost 90 restaurants), from traditional gourmet restaurants in the village, to cosy alpine lodges on the slopes.

At Zannier Hotels Le Chalet, the essence of purity and simplicity throughout the design and experience flows effortlessly into the pristine white peaks of the Mont Blanc mountain range, surrounding cinematic Megève. It’s this seamless sense of place that inspired Arnaud Zannier to create the first Zannier hotel and for it to become the hallmark for Zannier Hotels around the world.

The interiors of Le Chalet combine pared-back palettes of natural materials with handpicked furniture and antiques crafted by local artisans. The unhurried atmosphere creates the space for everyday rituals – sharing a meal, reading, talking or relaxing – where the intensity of landscape comes alive.

The spa is regarded as one of the best in the village, and its combination of swimming pool, sauna and European massage therapies provide the perfect relaxation after an alpine day.

Every day at Le Chalet is an experience in itself with a special ski concierge service to make the most of Megève’s vast ski region totalling 445 kilometres, compromising 136 groomed runs.

From ski passes to personal ski instructors, or for the more adventurous, we can arrange ski touring, heli- skiing the untouched slopes of Mont Blanc or trekking through alpine forests. Dog-sledding, winter walks and hot-air balloon ride are among the favourites for younger guests.
