Our Top Family-Friendly Ski Resorts in France – Part 4: Megève


Welcome to Part 4 in our series about our Top Family-Friendly Ski Resorts in France! If you missed our posts on Avoriaz, Val d’Isère or Courchevel click here!

We are now moving North towards Mont Blanc and the resort of Megève. Megève is a ski resort village in south-east France close to the Italian and Swiss borders. This beautiful resort offers a variety of ski runs, snow parks and trails as well as a lovely range of boutiques and restaurants. The centre of the village is almost entirely pedestrianised making it ideal for families and in the summer it is transformed into stunning forests and meadows.

Megève is easy to get to from Geneva Airport in about an hour, and Grenoble, Lyon and Chambery airports are also within 2 hours of Megève. The nearest train station is Sallanches—Combloux—Megève station which is approximately 12km away, and offers easy access to Megève by rail from London, Paris, and other major European cities.

Megève tends to be a bit quieter than some of the other resorts which is great for families, and the views of Mont Blanc from the slopes are simply breathtaking. There is a multitude of off-slope activities on offer, including tennis, ice-skating, climbing and swimming and off-season events meaning there really is something for everyone.


For avid skiers, we are sure you will want to visit a few different resorts.  But once you fall in love with an area, you may wish to look at buying property there so you can make the most of the ski season each year, and we would love to help you with that.  Our highly trained team has an intimate knowledge of the property buying and French mortgages.
