(4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: winter sports, classes, historic sites
Megève is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France with a population of over 4,000 residents. The town is well-known due its popularity as a ski resort near the Mont-Blanc in the French Alps. Conceived in the 1920s as a French alternative to Saint-Moritz by the Rothschilds, it was the first purpose-built resort in the Alps. Originally it was a prime destination for the French aristocracy. It remains one of the most famous and fanciest ski resorts in the world.HistoryThe town started its development as a ski resort in the 1910s when the Rothschild family started to spend their winter vacations there after becoming disenchanted with the Swiss resort, St. Moritz. In 1921, Baroness Noémie de Rothschild (1888–1968) opened an important hotel which boosted the resort's development. By the 1950s Megève was one of the most popular ski resorts in Europe and attracted many wealthy individuals and celebrities. Nowadays it is still visited largely by affluent people as is evidenced by the real estate prices.DevelopmentThere are plans to replace both Mont Joux chairs with one six pack lift for the Winter 2014/15 season. Further additions include the latest branch of Folie Douce, due to open at the top of Mont Joux, introducing the chain’s trademark Austrian-style afternoon party scene. This will be the fifth in the Folie Douce chain, which started in Val d’Isère and spread to Val Thorens, Méribel and Alpe d’Huez.
