M de Megeve

Watching the Winter Olympics may have you eager to hit the slopes yourself. One of the world’s best ski destinations is nestled beneath Mont Blanc in the French Alps. Megève-- the impossibly chic (and charming) alpine resort-- has a brand new five-star address this season which is already drawing all the French celebrities.

Called the M de Megève, the hotel exudes the traditional Savoyard style with a dash of contemporary cool. Designed as a mountain chalet with lots of exposed timber and stone, the hotel has 42 rooms and suites decorated with old leathers, textiles by Arpin, and fur throws.
