The best things about #Megeve

Hello all...

Right now, the kids are tucked up in bed and the other half is happily sitting in front of the fire with some easy viewing on TV. So I thought I'd take the chance to tell you about my trip to Megeve at the end of last month. In fact it wasn't just me - Stanford Skiing's other new recruit, the lovely Rachel came along too. Together, we took our maiden voyage into all thing's Stanford and Megeve
Rachel has been along to Megeve before as a paying guest with her family staying in the Sylvana  and I have visited St Gervais too, so we had a basic understanding of the area. However being able to see the stunning Alpine resort in the sunshine and fire non stop questions to the fantastic staff, (who have over 200 years knowledge of the area between them) proved extremely useful. Now we can pass that on to you guys too...

Now I can relay to you how stunning the resort is. How fab the accommodation is - from cosy and family friendly to luxurious and sophisticated. How ideal the locations are with a choice of town centre to almost at the end of the ski runs. What great a deal you get when booking transfers, lift passes and equipment hire. How fantastic the food is from breakfast to evening meals. Or what an amazing team of people will be looking after you from your first point of contact in the UK to your break away.

However what I've decided to do as a starter is give you a brief taste of Megeve by giving you some top 3's (ish) from the crew
