With interiors by Pierre-Yves Rochon and Baroness Ariane de Rothschild, whose family put Megève on the map in the 1920s, the 55-room and suite hotel has invested heavily in making sure that junior visitors have plenty to keep them busy when the weather turns bad.
The highlight for us is the Teen Centre, a stylish space themed after a downtown nightclub, with industrial style concert lighting in funky hues mounted to rigging around the walls, plus a home theatre system, fussbol table, a Playstation and other games consoles to keep older children busy. The Kids for all Seasons club is packed with activities for younger guests, where mini-adventures like trekking around the hotel and snow-scooter excursions are complemented by a range of educational activities celebrating life in the French Alps.
A dedicated ski concierge can recommend activities for the whole family to enjoy based on age and interests, but we’re fairly sure everyone will enjoy an electric snowmobile ride through the woods, or a horse sledding excursion in the snowy landscape. For active families who like to make the most of their time on the slopes, Four Seasons’ ski safari is just the thing. Every morning, the ski concierge will scan the slopes for the best snow at onearby resorts and make recommendations based on the best conditions. Families can then hop aboard the Four Seasons helicopter and swoop through the mountains to their chosen resort. The hotel can also arrange babysitting services (with 24 hour notice) if mums and dads want some alone time on the slopes.
