About Ski Chalet-Hotel Sylvana

Our catered ski chalet hotel Sylvana in Megeve is our original ski chalet, very popular with our regular guests who have discovered it's charms and with a great location for those who want to maximise their skiing.

Situated in a quieter location on a private road, the catered ski chalet hotel Sylvana is ideal for skiers with it’s superb location just 150m from the Rochebrune cable car which takes you straight into the vast ski area of Megeve, so you can be straight on the slopes.  Yet still only a few minutes walk to the heart of the iconic French alpine resort of Megeve, where the village centre oozes French charm, with it’s unique ambience, open air ice rink, horse-drawn sleighs and cobbled streets.

The 15 bedrooms are comfortable, simple and homely, decorated in the traditional Savoyard manner.  Each cosy room has an ensuite bath or shower room.  Downstairs you can relax in front of the log fire in the attractive and spacious lounge area and have a pre-dinner drink and appetisers at the bar.

The resident professional chef will spoil you daily with a hearty breakfast of croissants, porridge, eggs, fresh fruit, yoghurts and pain au chocolat, 3 course evening meal cooked to a high standard with wine, and freshly baked cakes, tea and coffee on your return. After a quick pre-dinner drink around the blazing open fire in the lounge area at the chalet’s own bar, where we serve reasonably priced drinks, join the other guests at the chalet for a sociable evening ahead. There is a small TV room downstairs, equipped with English satellite TV (free to view channels), video player and board games. A perfect den for the children! 

There is a private car park at the front of the chalet, which is free of charge to our guests.

Airport Transfers and Travel Options

Getting to Megève is easy - fly, train, drive

The easiest way to get to Megève is to fly to Geneva.  There are direct flights from about 20 UK airports and numerous other countries. We can then arrange your transfer. Please check our transfer times before booking your flight - it can be expensive if your flight is very early or late. 

Alternatively, the nearest TGV train station (Sallanches) is 20 mins away, or its an easy drive.

For details of all the options click here.

Airport Transfers

For the winter season 2021-22, we are working with Alpybus, the largest Geneva airport transfer company. As a result of our agreement, Alpybus have a lot of services each week to Megève and many more to Sallanches from where we can pick you up. We also have our own minibuses to cover peak periods and emergencies.   The journey takes only 75 minutes in normal conditions.  We offer two types of service:

Shared Transfers £38 each way 

Several parties of guests may travel in the same vehicle. If your flight is late and your planned transfer has left, the increased capacity that Alpybus have means that they have the flexibility to reschedule and get you to Megève as quickly as possible.  Guide timetables for the 2021/22 season are available here.

Private Transfers

Your transfers will be booked at the time you specify. Prices for Private transfers will be confirmed in early September but to give you an idea, last season's prices each way were as follows:

       1 - 8 passengers £185,  9-13 passengers £225,  14-16 Passengers £360.

Keeping you Covid secure

Desperately missing skiing but worried about the dreaded virus?  Don't fret!

This summer (2021) the ski lifts have been open, Megéve has been as beautiful as ever with visitors enjoying all that the village has to offer.  Our catered chalet hotel Rond Point has been open throughout the pandemic and the Sylvana is also open this summer so we already have experience of running our catered chalets and apartments with regulations in place to minimise risks and ensure our guests have a fantastic holiday.   Obviously we will adapt as new regulations appear and we hope that things will relax further but as things stand at the moment, this is what is in place:

  • We will not be offering room servicing during your stay to minimise cross-infection (unless requested by yourselves) but will be cleaning thoroughly between guests.
  • The main chalet areas, including our relaxed sitting/bar area with log fire, will of course be cleaned very frequently and there will be hand sanitisers in the bar area and at the entrance to the chalets for guest use.
  • Our friendly chalet staff will wear masks and we ask you to do the same whilst moving around the hotel although not when seated in the main chalet areas.
  • We will seat you in the dining area in your “bubble” with 1 metre spacing between groups and will ask you to sit 1 metre apart at the bar and in our comfortable seating area around the fire. We will serve you your drinks and bar snacks to prevent congestion at the bar.
  • Instead of a breakfast buffet, there will be table service and we will ask you to pre-order the night before.
So all in all, it’ll be the same relaxed chalet ambience with our friendly, helpful staff, and a great chef serving excellent food. 
 
Megéve itself is an ideal destination as outside of french holidays there are very rarely any lift queues and you get the pistes to yourself.  Ideal for that extra bit of social distancing! It's a short transfer from Geneva as well and private transfers as well as shared transfers are available.  You can find further information regarding current Covid regulations in France here.
 
Don't forget our flexible booking conditions and lockdown/quarantine guarantee for winter 2021/22 for extra reassurance.
