Welcome to our Dutch visitors To go directly to our english website click here.
Below is a brief explanation of who we are
and what we can offer you.
Megeve ski holidays, ski weekends & short ski breaks in catered chalets, apartments and hotels
Megeve is a hidden gem - one of the biggest ski areas in France, but uncrowded pistes and no lift queues outside Paris holidays. On top of that Megeve has a charming French medieval village centre, no mass market tour operators and the cheapest lift pass of any major resort.
We are an english, family-run company offering short breaks or full weeks in chalets, apartment and hotels in Megeve in winter and summer.
A Chalet holiday is more convivial than an hotel
The "Chalet Holiday" is an english concept which embodies most of the benefits of an hotel, but is more relaxed and informal. The similarities are that all our rooms have en-suite bathrooms and we employ professional chefs. The main differences are that
- the bar or lounge is very sociable and our prices are kept low.
- everyone sits down together for dinner at shared tables
- many of the hotel extras are free, such as wine with dinner and tea and cake after skiing.
We feel this concept will appeal to many dutch people. We have two chalet-hotels, sleeping 25-30 people and a luxury chalet sleeping 10-14. You can come alone, with a small group, or book the whole chalet.
Yes, but I want to go self-catered or prefer an hotel.
Not to worry, we have two self-catered apartments in Megeve and work with the hotels in the town as well.
Megeve is ideal for ski weekends & short ski breaks
Megeve is very close to Geneva airport, only 75 mins, so is great for ski weekends and short ski breaks. We offer a transfer service to and from the airport.
Why choose us?
Stanford Skiing has never been an average ski holiday company. From the very beginning, the emphasis has been on treating our guests like family friends and offering a holiday that we would be delighted to go on ourselves.
So what makes us so different?
We charge a fair price for your holiday and that’s it.
We don’t let people come into the chalets to sell you anything and we don’t run on commission. We give honest, un-biased recommendations that will improve your holiday experience.
Our UK team know the resort, the chalets and the resort staff, meaning we can answer your questions confidently and thoroughly.
Our chalet bars are not run for profit, so prices are kept low for the enjoyment of our guests.
We treat our staff well, meaning you are welcomed enthusiastically and looked after by people who are enjoying the mountains as much as you are.
John and Kay, the owners, spend the whole winter in Megève and look forward to seeing you out there!

What about Megeve in the Summer?
Megeve is beautiful in the summer with glorious views of Mont Blanc, swimming in lakes, mountain biking, horse riding, hiking, climbing and golf to name a few activities. Or you can just relax and enjoy the town, explore the mountain farms and learn how to make cheese or grab a bargain at the local market. Megeve is also playing host to the Tour de France this year and is therefore a great hub for road biking! During the summer, Stanford have two self-catered properties, our Chalet Les Clochettes sleeping 10 people and the Clochettes apartment above sleeping 4-6 people. The Sylvana and the Rond Point, our two chalet-hotels, are run on a B&B basis in the summer and are available for any length of stay.
