A little Italianate (once upon a time, even more so) alpine hamlet
transformed into a rather glam ski resort after a certain Rothschild lady,
horrified by having to share her
Swiss winter holidays
with Nazi generals in, I think it was, St. Moritz.
Megeve seems now well on it's way to being Vail-i-fied, sadly. In that overstuffed impossibly tasteful greige way that is very much the "bon gout" of moment. (Which I don't hate, but you can have too much of a good thing?)
These pictures probably don't do it justice. Megeve is situated in a broad, spreading gentle valley well up in the mountains.
(not my picture - not sure where from)
some of it's
charms. If you are in the neighborhood......
the detour is kind of unavoidable.
There is good food in Megeve - that's why we went, on the way back from Mont Blanc. Anyone going skiing anytime soon? Isn't it time for the school holidays soon? Have you been to Megeve?
