Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Edmond de Rothschild Heritage, a company owned by Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild, have announced plans for the first Four Seasons mountain destination in Europe, opening in time for the 2017-2018 winter ski season. Involved in the design of the property are Bruno Legrand (architect), and Pierre-Yves Rochon (designer) with Baroness Ariane de Rothschild.
Facing Mont Blanc and approximately 44 miles from Geneva International Airport, Megève is a top skiing destination. As Megève’s first hotel to have direct access to the Mont d’Arbois slopes, the 55-room Four Seasons Hotel Megève will be located at the base of Mont d’Arbois’ mountainside.
In addition, Four Seasons will also manage the 18-hole Le Golf du Mont d’Arbois club designed by three-time British Open champion Sir Henry Cotton.
Dining options will include Le 1920 restaurant, a two Michelin-starred establishment that will be moving to a new home within Four Seasons Hotel Megève. There will be four other venues with fireside settings, and mountain and valley views from large picture windows and outdoor terraces.
Leisure amenities within the hotel will include a spa, fitness center and indoor-outdoor pool with indoor lounge seating, fireplace and refreshment counter, and outdoor sun terrace with views over the valley and mountains. There will also be clubs for children and teens.
Four Seasons Hotel Megève will be the third Four Seasons destination in France, joining the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris and Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel in the French Riviera. The Hotel will be the fifth ski destination in the company’s portfolio, joining Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail, Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe and Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole.
