• This ski re­sort town was cre­ated by a Baroness from the wealthy Roth­schild fam­ily a cen­tury ago. With the Alps on all fronts (Swiss, Ital­ian & French) home to some of the most gor­geous ski re­sorts, Mègeve re­mains the favourite of the old-rich. Its town centre rem­i­nisces the me­dieval times with cob­bled pave­ments, horse-drawn sleighs roam­ing around, and car-free zones. The ski area is for all ex­per­tise level of skiers with a few chal­leng­ing pistes and low-alti­tude slopes. Four Sea­sons

Ho­tel Mègeve will open its doors for the first time in De­cem­ber, just in time for the 2018 ski­ing sea­son. This new ho­tel-re­sort at the heart of the me­dieval vil­lage of Mont d’ar­bois is the only one of its kind to be lo­cated di­rectly on the Mont d’ar­bois slopes, with its own in-house Ski Concierge and Ski Valet ser­vice. It of­fers only 55 lux­u­ri­ous ac­com­mo­da­tions and houses Le 1920, a two Miche­lin-starred restau­rant. The in­te­ri­ors take af­ter the vi­sion of Baroness Ari­ane de Roth­schild. The three-miche­lin starred chef, Em­manuel Re­naut, main­tains a world-class restau­rant here, Flo­cons de Sel. Al­though it be­comes packed in peak pe­ri­ods, Mègeve has a hushed and re­served am­bi­ence that suits those who wish to have a va­ca­tion that is equal part ac­tion-packed and re­fresh­ingly serene. www.foursea­sons. com/mègeve
