Four Seasons plans first mountain destination in Europe

Edmond de Rothschild Heritage, a lifestyle company owned by Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild, has partnered with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to open the first Four Seasons mountain destination in Europe. 

The Four Seasons Hotel, Megève is currently scheduled to open in time for the 2018 winter ski season in the Haute-Savoie Alpine range. Beyond the all-new hotel itself, the project will include the conversion of a collection of traditional chalets in the medieval Mont d’Arbois village. In addition to the chalet and hotel, Four Seasons will also manage the 18-hole Golf du Mont D’Arbois course designed by three-time British Open champion Sir Henry Cotton and four dining offerings throughout the two hotels.

“This partnership will bring new dimensions not only to our hospitality at Mont d’Arbois but also to the town of Megève,” Ariane de Rothschild, chairwoman of the executive committee of Edmond de Rothschild Group, said in a statement. “I am particularly proud that the Hotel and Chalet in Megève will be Four Seasons first luxury mountain destination in Europe.”
