Is there a true Megeve?


You may know Megeve as a VIP ski resort in a lovely valley close to the Mont Blanc. But Megeve is more than this.

This is a place where antonysms live together.
There you can find the wealthiest people the world as ever seen. For instance there is a street called the "Edmond Rotschild Route". There are all the most fashionable shops with the most expensive prices from YSL to Escada, from Boss to Dior... there is a cute casino where you'll be look down if you do not wear your fur.
All this is not fake. This is not (only) show off. Some people simply live like this and could not imagine to live another way.


But there is also peasants taking care of their cows ad horses, people coming there for a walk in the mountain with their whole family.

So do not avoid Megeve thinking this is not a place for you. This is a place for everyone who enjoys the beauty of the surrounding nature.
