FAQs

Q   What time can we check in and check out of our accommodation?
A  

Check in: The simple answer is whenever you need to although your accommodation may not be ready until 2pm. We understand that to get a great price on your flight you may not get a great arrival time! All we ask is if you choose to travel independently to us, you provide an estimated time of arrival. That way we can make sure someone is ready to greet you. Of couse, if we organise your transfer, we'll already know.

If you arrive in Megeve before your accommodation is ready we will offer a safe place to look after your bags. Hot and cold beverages are always available in our catered chalets or you can head straight off to ski!

   Check out: We ask departing guests to leave their rooms after breakfast or 10am latest. This allows our staff time to clean through before the next guests arrive for their holiday.

If you depart Megeve after you have checked out of your accommodation, again we will offer a safe place to look after your bags. You can spend the day at your leisure and we can even offer you somewhere to freshen up before you begin your journey back to the UK

When booking your holiday, we will ask for your flight details so arrangements can be made in advance whatever your plans.

Q   Megeve is low - will there be snow?
A  

Megève village sits at 1,100 meters with the highest lift going up to 2,350 meters where there is alway plenty of snow! With changing climates worldwide nothing is guaranteed, but nobody would invest billions on developing one of the largest ski areas in France if the snow was not reasonably reliable.

Winter 2018 was an incredible season with snow from late November through to mid May so we are (along with every other ski tour operator), hoping for another bumper season...

One huge benefit for choosing Megève over other ski resorts is that the pistes are green pastures during the summer months. This means that it only takes a small amount of snow for skiing, unlike the rocky base of other areas. Also being in the shadow of Mont Blanc creates a 'micro-climate' which keeps the snow fall over Megève. Oh, and did we mention the 145 snow cannons just in case?

As the end of the season approaches, bringing sunshine and blue skies it is true that the lower slopes start to melt in the late afternoon. To beat this, we recommend getting out early, ski as long as your legs can take, then enjoy a leisurely late lunch in a mountain restaurant with stunning views (and perhaps a beer or glass of wine!)

 

Q   Do you provide towels and soap in your chalets?
A  

Yes.  We provide a hand towel and large bath towel for each guest. Do feel free to ask a member of the team if you need extras or replacements. In all our catered chalets we also provide good quality toileteries.

Q   Do you have hairdryers?
A  

Yes.  We have hairdryers in all of our properties. There are UK extension cables for any other electrical appliances you bring.

Q   What do you do in the summer?
A  

This is the most often asked question in the resort. Partly it's a conversation opener with our staff who have a variety of summer jobs. For us (the management) it's the busiest time. Sorting out last year's accounts, getting the new prices on the web site, organising maintenance, getting all the safety inspections done and so on. But most importantly selling holidays. Often by the end of August we are more than 50% full. Of course the other reason for asking is from people who want to visit Megeve in the summer. Megeve is wonderful, with lots to do. In Summer, we run Hotel Rond Point & Sylvana as Bed & Breakfast hotels and our superior chalet Les Clochettes is available on a catered basis for alpine hiking holidays, family alpine adventure holidays and cycling holidays.  The apartment Les Clochettes is also available on a self-catered basis .

Q   How do you pronounce Megeve?
A  

The "Meg" part is pronounced like Mej  - a soft g. The "¨ve" is like kev, not like evie or jeev.  In french it has an accent "Megève" but we don't use that in our website because Google searches treat è and e differently. Now you can sound like a local!
