Property of the Month: Chalet La Connivence, Megève

 

Why choose Megève?

Megève is an iconic ski destination near Mont Blanc in the French Alps. If you are looking for a blend of rustic chic and authentic beauty from your luxury chalet, Megève may just leave a lasting impression.

Situated in the sun-drenched foothills of the Mont Blanc massif, Megève is steeped in history as it was founded upon a village dating back to the 13th century and still maintains part of its medieval centre. Nowadays, it’s famed not only for its diversity of ski runs, but also as a gastronomic alpine haven with traditional alpine chalets and charming five-star hotels.

At the heart of the village is the medieval car-free centre, where horse-drawn sleighs glide through cobbled streets lined with exclusive designer boutiques. When the snow falls, there is no more magical place to be.

Whether you prefer to indulge in the exciting après ski scene, or in one of the many exceptional restaurants, there is something for everyone. Megève is home to three Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as a plethora of more laid-back options and great nightlife spots.

 

Megeve in Winter

 

A perfect family chalet

Chalet La Connivence has been designed with utmost care and consideration, perfectly balancing an inviting and cosy atmosphere with luxurious facilities that wow and high-end finishes. A ten-minute walk to both the heart of Megève and the nearest ski lifts, this chalet is both central and secluded, in an exclusive neighbourhood overlooking the resort.

You are initially welcomed by the beautiful open-plan living space. Centred around an all-glass woodburning fireplace, the tasteful sunken living area, dining area, breakfast nook and kitchen come together to create the perfect environment for entertaining.

The spacious en-suite master bedroom is located on the top floor of the chalet, under a high, vaulted ceiling with beautiful wooden beams. Wake up in the large, plush bed to breathtaking vistas and make use of the stylish walk-in wardrobe under the eaves. There is also a study area tucked away around the corner, but hopefully, there will be no need to use it while on your ski holiday!

There are four further beautiful bedrooms each tastefully designed, light, bright and spacious. They all have sleek en-suite shower rooms, and the bunk room sleeping four is a perfect cosy den for children. The three double bedrooms enjoy access directly out onto the wrap-around terrace where the outdoor spa is situated.

Preparing for the slopes

Fuel up with freshly baked croissants in the rustic breakfast nook, seating eight and flooded with morning sunlight. The adjoining kitchen is open on two sides with a breakfast bar, and the whole area looks out onto the snow-cloaked landscape through floor-to-ceiling windows, where the slopes call your name!

Grab your toasty boots from the warmers in the large ski room, throw on your outerwear and enjoy the crisp winter sunshine on your 10-minute stroll to the Le Chamois ski lift.

This terrain is divided into three areas and delivers a wealth of varied pistes, with many slopes offering spell-binding views of Mont Blanc, the Alps’ highest peak. With 450km of slopes spanning over 4 massifs, 60 on-slope restaurants to stop at for a delicious lunch, 7 ‘fun areas’ and breathtaking panoramas, Megève is a ski resort to delight those of all ages, abilities and interests.

Heli-skiing on pristine powdery mountain peaks is only a 15-minute flight away. Allow our in-resort concierge to arrange this exhilarating experience for you and leave with memories to last a lifetime.

If you want to enjoy something other than skiing, Megève has options to entertain all. Some of the popular activities on offer are dog sledging, horse sleigh rides, archery, ice-diving, and electric fat-biking. Those looking for an adrenaline fix shouldn’t miss the thrilling family-friendly toboggan areas. Whether after a hearty meal under the starry night sky or enjoyed with the children as an alternative to a ski day, tobogganing is sure to provide lots of laughs!

Megève’s spas are a veritable sanctuary of serenity and relaxation. Many of the five-star hotels throughout Megève offer day spas with swimming pools, saunas, fitness centres, and extensive treatment menus. We would also be glad to arrange treatments for you in the comfort of your own chalet. Simply speak to your concierge to book everything from soothing sports massages to the perfect festive manicure.

If heading out for the evening, don’t miss the prestigious Flocons de Sel – holding the elusive three Michelin stars.

You time

The outdoor spa is a truly unique place to unwind after a day on the mountain, where the landscaped garden flows harmoniously around the stunning wooden hot tub and barrel sauna. Linked by wooden boardwalks, enjoy a candle-lit pamper session moving between the two, to soothe those sore ski muscles.

The jaw-dropping views are the cherry on top, and you can even enjoy these from within the sauna, thanks to its all-glass side that gazes out over the sparkling lights of Megeve and across to distant snowy peaks. A really magical experience that is the highlight of this wonderful chalet.
