Four Seasons has expanded its enviable portfolio
of luxury hotels in France with the opening of second resort in Megève.
Following an investment of more than EUR 10 million,
the historic five-star hotel has been reborn as Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois, Megève,
The a cosy 41-room hotel gives guests the opportunity to

“We are delighted to continue our partnership
with the Rothschild family as we celebrate the opening of a second
Four Seasons in Megève,” said Christian Clerc, President, Global
Operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “For decades the
village and surrounding mountains have been a favoured getaway for
lovers of the outdoors, and now, we are pleased to enhance the
experience even further with this reinvention of a much-loved
classic, introducing a new era of luxurious sophistication to Les
Chalets du Mont d’Arbois.”
Both Four Seasons hotels, and indeed Megève
itself, are the legacy of the Edmond de Rothschild family. The
meticulous restoration and refurbishment of Les Chalets du Mont
d’Arbois was personally overseen by Ariane de Rothschild,
Chairwoman of the Board of the Edmond de Rothschild Group, in
collaboration with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and designer
Pierre-Yves Rochon, famed for his interior design of Four Seasons
Hotel George V, Paris.
With three unique buildings to choose from,
guests can enjoy a stay that suits their personal style, whether
in the classic luxury and refined atmosphere of Chalet Noémie, the
bohemian chic of Chalet Alice, or the more traditional Chalet Eve.
Both Chalet Alice and Chalet Noémie are available for exclusive
buyouts. Next season, Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois will unveil the
Suite Idéal, a very special accommodation high up in the mountain
wilderness, also fully serviced by Four Seasons.
Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois is also home to
Prima, the Michelin-starred restaurant helmed by Chef Nicolas
Hensinger and overseen by Executive Chef Julien Gatillon of
Michelin two-starred Le 1920, located within sister property Four
Seasons Hotel Megève.
Additional on-site facilities include a
welcoming lobby lounge and bar; a spa with treatment rooms, hammam,
sauna and indoor/outdoor relaxation areas; a heated indoor-outdoor
swimming pool; and in winter, a skating rink adjacent to Chalet
Guests of both properties enjoy seamless access
to all facilities, including preferred seating at restaurants,
signing privileges, and transfers.
A short walk to the pedestrians-only village
centre, Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois is the perfect choice for
those who wish to enjoy it all.
Megève is home to international
luxury boutiques, art galleries, and a wide variety of
restaurants and bars including several Michelin-starred
establishments, as well as picturesque Alpine architecture, small
churches and cobblestoned streets.
Minutes from the village and hotel, the Alps
beckon with some of Europe’s best skiing as well as snowboarding,
ice skating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and much more.
“We suggest a tour via horse-drawn carriage,
bundled up in blankets while you take pictures of the village and
surrounding mountains. Or, the historic Calvary Path is a lovely
trail to hike or cycle, unique to Megève,” said Joachim Jacob,
Megève is located just 70 minutes by car from
