The Christmas Lights are switched on in Megeve!

Megeve News - All the Latest!

The Christmas tree is looking beautiful with the lights officially switched on.  Apparently it was a great party.  Certainly looks that way in the video!  There's lots more entertainment on this week with the Christmas village in full swing.

The staff arrived last weekend and are busy getting the chalets ready for your arrival.  Cleaning all the nooks and crannies, making the beds and putting up the Christmas decorations.  The chefs are testing their ovens and learning the tricks of getting their cakes to rise at altitude and how to boil the perfect egg.  Sounds easy, but actually there's a definite knack and the lower pressure up there plays havoc with these things!
Our Catered Chalet/hotel Sylvana has had new doors fitted to the lovely fireplace in the sitting room.  Now perfect for relaxing in front of after a hard days skiing!

We're pleased to announce that Great Britain beat France 3-2 in the U20's ice hockey world championships held this week in the Palais des Sports in Megeve.  The Stanford team were there cheering them on!


The new international Megeve jazz festival

is shaping up from Thursday 24th to Monday 28th March.  There will be free concerts in the village square and even at the foot of the pistes and then paid ones later on in the evening for the big names.  Hopefully it'll be like the summer festival where the musicians rejoin later for a jamming session in the square from about 11pm onwards.  A great party!  Names confirmed as coming are: Paolo Conte, Avishai Cohen, Melody Gardot and The Keystone Big Band.  Should be great fun.  We still have space in our catered chalets so book up quickly!

Don't forget to check out our special offers on our website including our JANUARY SALE on week bookings and ski weekends in catered ski chalets, self-catered apartments and hotels.
