New Details on the Four Seasons Mégève, Opening in 2017

Earlier this year, we reported on a glam new alpine resort in Mégève in the French Alps: a partnership between Four Seasons and Edmond de Rothschild Heritage, a lifestyle company owned by Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild. Historically the de Rothschild family were instrumental in creating Mégève as a luxe ski destination on par with Switzerland’s St Moritz; it was Noémie de Rothschild in the 1920s who first opened the now legendary Domaine du Mont d’Arbois.  

Now the de Rothschilds are embarking on an exciting new hospitality project: the first Four Seasons mountain destination in Europe. It’s expected to open in late 2017 in time for the 2018 ski season in the Haute-Savoie Alps. In fact, there will be two individual properties: The Four Seasons Hotel, Megève is a new-build construction with 55 hotel rooms, offering direct access to the Mont d’Arbois slopes, while a collection of traditional village chalets will be converted into the Chalet Du Mont d’Arbois, Megève, A Four Seasons Hotel.

There will be four dining outlets, and Four Seasons will take on management of the 18-hole golf course (Golf du Mont D’Arbois) designed by Sir Henry Cotton.
