Mini guide Ski weekend in Megeve France Eat, drink and stay

January and February are cold, grey and long so why not try to make the best out of it, right?

Ski weekend in Mègeve, France

We decided to hit the road with a couple friends to ski in Mevgève in the French alps.
I haven´t skied in 17 years so you can imagine I were excited and nervous to break a leg or two. I thought I would share a couple of places to stay, eat and drink.

The centre of Mègeve lit up at night

The French ski resort Megève was set up by Baroness Noémie de Rothschild, who thought back in the beginning of the 20th century that France should have it´s own classy St Moritz. She set out to change the little farming village of Megève into a glamorous holiday destination.

Cold cuts

Now days Courchevel has taken over the glamour and excess, but Megève still attracts the old money.  On the cobble stone streets in the centre you can find elegant boutiques and extravagant hotels.

There are no cars allowed in the centre, and if you didn´t bring your own horse carriage and you fancy a ride you can find them in the main square.
