Destinations: Megève and Courchevel, France
Lovers of the Alpine mountainside would be glad to know that they can soon visit the beautiful ski resort town of Megève. The ancient town, with its roots going back to the early 13th century, is often compared to Switzerland’s St. Moritz. Situated close to the majestic Mont-Blanc, the ski village has different ski points fit for every level of skier imaginable. It was first developed in 1920 with the help of the Rothschild family, developing the sleepy pastoral village into one of Europe’s poshest winter destinations. Megève also shares its rich and colorful history evident in its well-preserved heritage architecture—just one of the many reasons you should add this destination to your next holiday getaway.
The Alpine ski resort has two ski slopes on offer, which can be accessed via two ski pass options–the Ported du Mont-Blanc with 100-kilometer pistes and the Evasion Mont Blanc that has 400-kilometer pistes. More seasoned skiers who are up for the challenge could try to test their aptitude at the Chamonix ski area with a multitude of slopes for you to discover.
Apart from the usual skiing activities, guests can experience a different kind of Megève as they explore the mountainside via an enchanting sleigh ride or perhaps up away in the clouds via a hot air balloon giving them a dramatic view of the Mont Blanc and its peaks.
Gourmands on the lookout for world-class gastronomy should certainly try Megève’s multi-starred restaurants. Megèvan cuisine emphasizes nothing but the highest quality in gourmet cookery featuring some of the world’s highly-decorated chefs and fresh farm produce as the star of every dish—an ode to its humble farming origins.
Of course, Megève’s vibrant apres-ski scene shouldn’t be ignored. With a bevy of internationally-acclaimed DJ’s and multi-starred hotels and clubs dotting its cosmopolitan center, guests are guaranteed top-notch entertainment to cap off their stay in this wintery paradise.
Next to Megeve is the famed Courchevel, which is just a couple of hours away. Arguably one of the hottest destinations in the world, the mountain resort commune has served as a temporary respite for the wealthy A-listers and royalties since its inception in the mid-1940s by the Saint-Bon Council. Located in the Savoie region, this charming winter playground has some of the best views of the Tarentaise Valley.
The “St. Tropez of Winter Sports,” Courchevel has seven ski resorts in its network in the sweeping Les Trois Vallees with over 600-kilometer slopes for you to explore. Worth noting is the colossal Le Grand Couloir that has a whopping 2,700-meter altitude and 340-meter steep drop, and La Tania, a skiing area known for its glades and lush spruce forest.
Besides the seven legendary ski locations ready for exploration, you may also engage in fun winter activities like hang-gliding, snowmobiling, ice climbing, dog-sledding, and paragliding.
Apart from its natural wonders, Courchevel displays upscale shopping, dining, and entertainment options through its neighboring resort town of Courchevel 1850. Guests can have a glimpse of Courchevel’s bustling après-ski scene in Moriond, which showcases an array of pubs, bars, and clubs to suit everyone’s moods and preferences.
