La Folie Douce Arrives in Megeve in time for Winter 2014!

La Folie Douce Arrives in Megeve in time for Winter 2014!

lefoliedoucemeribelIt was in 1969 when Luc Reversade, a former ski instructor, founded the first La Folie Douce in Val d’Isere. The restaurant and bar soon built up a reputation as the place in Val to go for apres-ski...
As has been clear for years at the Krazy Kangaruh and Moosevirt in St Anton, apres-ski doesn’t have to start at the bottom of the hill and visitors to Megeve will soon be able to go open air clubbing at altitude!
La Folie Douce is about style, fashion, drinking and dancing - Expect a tasteful mix of dance music, funky jazz and cabaret. This is ‘open air clubbing at altitude’.
The Val d’Isere location was followed by more restaurants in Val Thorens, then in 2012 in Meribel and Alpe d'Huez. Now Reversade has announced plans to open a fifth Folie Douce in Megeve this Winter, with a site at the top of Mont Joux at 2000m overlooking the slopes of St Gervais and Megeve
We at Stanford Ski watch with anticipation as plans progress.. (in hope of some launch night tickets for the younger ones amongst us!) One thing for sure is that this will provide our guests with even further choice as to how to spend an evening in Megeve. I have to be honest though, I cannot imagine many people wanting to venture out into the cold when there's the cosy comfort of the log fires in our chalets. Given the fantastic choice of skiing available locally too, surely most will be saving their energy for the snow?
Still, it gives us another chance to shout about the beautiful Megeve... and cement it's place firmly on the map as one THE most fabulous ski weekend and ski break resorts!

Over & out, Sarah x

Afternoon all!

Firstly, let me introduce myself - My name is Sarah and I'm very lucky to be one of the newest recruits to Team Stanford Skiing in their Norwich HQ. I'm a happily married Mum to three gorgeous boys, Norfolk based and a lover of all things internetty (Down to the fact that I have an Iphone glued to my palm to guide me through modern life)

As a child I was fortunate enough to have parents that took me with them on their travels. Some of my happiest ventures occurred whilst away for Christmases and Summers at my Uncle's Alpine chalet in St Gervais, France. Here I am now, with a
 need to earn a second income, a love of the world wide web and a passion for travel. You can imagine, I was over the moon when I landed this job!

Now there are two reasons for me writing this blog. The obvious one being my intention to let the world know about Stanford Skiing and the stunning resort of Megeve. They are both hidden gems that need 'outing' The other reason is to share my own journey as I buff up on my skiing and introduce it to my husband and boys. The hope is that I may inspire you to do the same, provide some handy info and maybe make you smile on the way...

I'm going to keep this short and sweet, as there's work to be done. I'll just finish by saying thankyou for reading and please stay tuned for more. In spreading the word about Stanford Skiing, I'll be setting up their other social media accounts, so you'll have plenty of ways to keep up to date. Any follows, likes and shares will be much appreciated!

Best wishes folks
