We wanted our baby boy to experience the snow, so we planned a brief retreat to a winter destination. When planning, we were between Switzerland and France and finally decided for Megeve as we are not skiers so the town seemed to be more family oriented than its Swiss counterpart.
As we are also not used to the snow and alpine towns, my husband wanted to stay at a chalet style place where we could step out and play with the snow but be able to have all comforts of a 5 star hotel.
We took the 2 bedroom chalet. This was perfect for us. It is located on the top floor of a 3 storie 'cabin' looking building. the interior was all wood and had windows in the ceilings (sorry about my english) that let the light come in and to check how the snow piled up. It also had a nice balcony overlooking the mountains.
On the basement of this building there was a child play area with all sort of toys, games, 1 activity room, 1 playroom and 2 tv rooms. Everything child friendly and was child size.
The hotel is 5 minutes from town and you can easily go and return with the hotel shuttle, no problem at all.
Also, the spa and pool area are even better than what you see in the website so do not miss bringing your swimsuit (like we did!).
To sum up, if we are able to go back to Megeve, alpaga would be our top choice, no doubt.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Alpaga nestles in natural surroundings just a few minutes from the village, in the heart of Megeve and the Aravis range. Its chalets blend seamlessly with the environment yet are an integral part of the life of the hotel, including the main building and its restaurants, the gardens, the bar and the hot tub with a view of Mont Blanc. They offer resort regulars and passing visitors a quiet setting steeped in style and warmth, whether in winter or in summer. People come to the Alpaga to enjoy the luxury of its rooms and the refinement of its restaurant, which won its first Michelin star in 2014, offering an authentic dining experience that is both original and true to the Megeve tradition, under the direction of head chef Anthony Bisquerra. ... more less
