Megeve is a wonderfully charming ski village near Mont Blanc with a splendid selection of restaurants, hotels and shops, esp. the charcuterie in the center of the village sells the most wonderful selection of local delicacies, like the saucisson sec (dry salami) and chevre (goat cheese). Our favorite is Hotel les Aravis, a charming little hotel just on the outskirts of Megeve near the Princess lift. It not only offers a wonderful selection of petit dejeuner composed of pain au chocolat, croissant and baguettes, but also, the owners are absolutely friendly, as we were greeted with a smile and a hearty ‘Bonjour’ every morning. And the rooms have an amazing view over the valley from which I enjoyed the sun rise and set every day.
