Le Chalet Zannier
Ranked #21 of 37 Hotels in Megeve
Reviewed 2 April 2013

We have just returned from the Chalet Zannier and it was truely a brilliant experience.

Its location is just outside Megeve and easy to reach from Geneva airport, i believe the transfer (in bad traffic) took about 90 mins, but would probably have been closer to an hour in better conditions. The town itself is glorious, as picturesque as i hoped, having expanded from a small farming village to its present form with a number of high end shops and restaurants – but without being as tasteless and ostentatious as some of the other ski resorts. The hotel itself is sited just outside the village in a quiet area surrounded by fields and with beautiful views across the valley. Its a small hotel with 12 rooms and every care is taken to ensure that guests have an amazing stay.

Being in only its second season, the chalet is still in beautiful condition with no signs of wear and tear, in fact the whole place is immaculate and clearly a lot of attention to detail has been paid. The room we stayed in (#7) was an “entry level” room, but it was very spacious and well appointed. It had a large balcony with sweeping views across the valley and a good sized bathroom, with gorgeous Aesop miniatures (small issue these weren’t refilled during our time there so we felt the need to ration ourselves). Additionally the walls (as commented on by another reviewer) are thinner than you might expect, we got woken up on day one by our neighbours music and kept awake another night so perhaps the hotel might advise people not to play music too late - as no other noises were were audible. Aside from this the communal areas are similarly beautiful and look like something out of the pages of an interiors magazine.

The staff, guest ratio is gloriously high, and everyone we encountered was utterly charming, from the guys taking us and collecting us from the slopes to the girls working in the restaurant and bar. The service was exceptional and we received many envious glances when we were collected by car from the lifts after a long days skiing. A tip is to call them at the top of the last run of the day so you don’t have to wait too long for them to arrive. On returning to a chalet we were greeted each day with the most incredible complimentary tea with homemade macaroons and cakes. Similarly breakfast was divine- the buffet selection was of the highest quality with many of the dairy offerings being from the local ferme de joseph who make the dreamiest, most delicious yogurts and cheeses, and the hot choices were beautifully cooked and delivered above and beyond what you’d expect from your average hotel breakfast. Additionally the little touches like easter eggs left in our room and a half bottle of champagne on arrival were so nice.

With regards to recreation facilities, the spa was (very) small, beautiful and perfectly formed and given the limited numbers staying the chalet any one time very quiet and private. The massage i had was amazing and fairly priced. One minor point, ski hire at the chalet was egregiously expensive. I think we ended up hiring skis in town for EUR 270 (this would have been much cheaper still – perhaps by as much as half the price- if we booked in advance), and the amount quoted to us by the chalet was EUR 650. Even with the best equipment (which we didn’t need), their charges seemed punitive. We would have paid in excess of the ski shop rates for the ease of hiring the equipment direct from the chalet but not double or triple(!)

Overall however the stay was exceptional; i have even been disinclined to leave a review so that we can keep the secret to ourselves but that would be doing the people who work so hard to make everyone’s stay there so special, a disservice(!)

In my life I have travelled a lot. That means staying in many 5 stars hotels but not in a such customized hotel as le ChaletZannier in Megeve. In this village covered of snow you can feel like Alice in Wonderland. The hotel is like a real private chalet with a very cocooning atmosphere. I really felt like home. I will start with the first impressions by arriving there. Easy check in with a welcome drink to relax by the huge fireplace. The interior-design of the lobby and the rooms amazing. The general atmosphere minimal and cosy at the same time. Beyond the expectations. And what a view! Snowing outside and enjoying the tea-time on a sofa. I also enjoyed my dinners in the bistro. Cool ambiance and very friendly staff. The maitre d'hôtel very welcoming, very professional and to the point. The food was very good but I mostly loved the velouté de topinambours. It was chilling and I will certainly go back.

We first visited the Chalet Zannier at Christmas 2012 and were given a complete tour of the property and suites by the then Concierge Georges Henri. We were very implressed with the property and planned to retun in 2013. On a recent trip to Megeve we walked to the Chalet from central Megeve to look at suites for our planned return to Megeve in March 2013. We were greated by a less than helpful Concierge who put us off saying there. We also had reservations for dinner there that night for four people and cancelled the dinner as well. It is a shame that such a beautiful and very expensive hotel cannot understand that the front of house staff are very important in giving guests and prospetive guests a lasting positive first inpression.

Perfect Hotel.

As you come to "Le Chalet Zannier" you meet highly friendly staff. they are so kind, helpful and polite, they just take care of everything for you, its starts at the little things and goes on.
The place is worm and cozy and the rooms are large and hi-end decorated.

This small hotel consists of few different chalets, with just 12 rooms in total. As one might expect for a hotel of this size and price, the service is good and personalized. The rooms are nicely decorated, and the location is 10 minutes walk from village center. The best thing about this hotel is that there is a driver on duty all day, who will take you to skiing area or a restaurant.
There are just two things which I didnt like. First is that the Spa area was in a different chalet, and too small even for 12 rooms. There are only 4 beds by the pool. On one day when I was there with my friends, 6 of us were sharing 4 beds, and the Spa attendant demanded that we vacate one of the beds for "her guest", not taking into account that the space was already overcrowded.
The second problem is the noise level from room to room, I could hear everything what was happening next door.
In general despite these small drawbacks I had a nice time at this hotel, and will consider it when Im next time in Megeve.
