The charming French village in the Haute-Savoie region is considered one of the world’s most beautiful countryside destinations. The ski resort was founded in the 1920s, but the town has medieval roots—and evidence remains, including the narrow, winding, cobblestoned lanes.


We only feature hotels that we can vouch for first-hand. With Indagare Plus,members receive special amenities.

Hôtel Alpaga Megève

The 22 rooms tucked into Alpaga’s 11 antique alpine chalets are beautifully furnished with crisp, white linens, faux fur throws and whitewashed exposed wood-paneled walls and beamed ceilings. At once managing to be comfortable and modernly stylish, the hotel is a great choice for couples who don’t need to be in the center of town.

The beautiful Spa La Colline boasts an indoor pool, outdoor sauna and small fitness center, and is the kind of spot where skiers flock to post-slopes—and non-skiers relax for much of the day. There are two restaurants, highlighted by the Michelin-starred La Table de l’Alpaga, which has won awards and holds great prestige in the French culinary tradition. L’Onyx is an excellent, more casual dining option and is itself a destination restaurant for its cool bistro-chic interiors, modern takes on classic dishes and excellent bar.

Six chalets range in size and are an excellent choice for large families or groups of friends looking for the privacy and autonomy of a private home, but with the amenities of a five-star hotel.

Les Fermes de Marie

The Sibuet family hotels are the best in Megève, and Les Fermes de Marie is the oldest, grandest and largest. Its 71 guestrooms spread throughout eight antique chalets are warm and stylish, boasting a down-to-earth yet world-class vibe. Les Fermes de Marie is the kind of family-friendly and totally comforting property that makes guests feel like they’re staying in a private chalet and their fellow guests are just close friends they’ve yet to make.

In 1989, nine separate mountainside chalets were taken apart, documented, transported to Megève and rebuilt to house the hotel’s restaurants, spa and gorgeous guest rooms. Anyone who experiences the hotel will agree: the old wood tells a story of its past, holding together Megève’s most beloved hotel and before that, family farmhouses. That the rooms today house movie stars and chic Parisians cuddled under opulent fur throws is appropriate.

The hotel has two refined restaurants, Traditionnel, which serves old-fashioned, formal cuisine from the region, and the downstairs Restaurant Alpin, specializing in fondue, charcuterie plates and dessert treats like tarte aux myrtilles (blueberry tart). The rambling, comfortable lobby bar is a great spot for après ski and for coffee and snacks throughout day and night.

The subterranean Spa Pure Altitude, consisting of 17 treatment rooms, an indoor pool, sauna, hammam and gym, specializes in handling ailments or issues caused by high altitude. The spa utilizes alpine plants and extracts in the products it makes in-house.

Two chalets managed by the hotel are available for rent. Chalet des Fermes, located on the property, can sleep 10 people in its five double rooms, and boasts a great lounge, dining room and terrace with stunning views. Chalet Chatel is not in the Fermes de Marie area, but in the small village of Les Choxeaux. It too has five bedrooms and comfortable public spaces, ideal for a large family or group of friends traveling together.

Unlike many properties in Megève, Les Fermes de Marie is open year-round.
