Zannier Hotels Le Chalet :
A delightful, intimate alpine retreat
At Zannier Hotels Le Chalet, the essence of purity throughout the design and experience connects effortlessly with the pristine white peaks surrounding cinematic Megève. Combining Michelin star restaurants, art galleries and spectacular mountain scenery, the village is an ideal place to unwind in the utmost comfort. This seamless sense of place inspired Arnaud Zannier to create the first property of an out-of-the-ordinary collection, that became the hallmark for Zannier Hotels.
With its charming traditional alpine architecture, the interior design of Zannier Hotels Le Chalet is based on a minimalist philosophy with touches of simplicity. The imperfection of antique objects echoes the nobility lent by the passage of time, and natural materials are given their due value. Traditional aged oak floors, ancient larch walls, old wood fittings and sanded wood furniture polished with lime resin offer a pure framework into which made-to-measure sofas and curtains, natural cottons and washed linen effortlessly meld. The outcome is completed by solid furniture chosen for their elegance and robustness. All 12 rooms and suites and separate three-bedroom private cottage are individually unique, featuring a balcony or terrace with uninterrupted mountain views. Fitted with a king-size bed, a living and/or office area and wood-burning fires, they are an all-year-long invitation to let go in ultimate luxury.
In winter, the hotel’s dedicated ski concierge is on hand to make the most the 445 kilometres of groomed slopes with daily ski passes, personal ski instructors, or for the more adventurous ski touring the untouched pistes of the Mont d’Arbois. Other wintertime pursuits include husky-sledding, snowshoeing, trekking through alpine forests, ice-skating, hot-air balloon rides or raindeer feeding – a favourite among younger guests. With the help of the concierge, a private chauffeur can make anything happen, from a private experience in Montenvers watching the Ice Sea to a cosy afternoon tea session. After a long day of skiing and sightseeing, the spa is ideal to relax body and soul with its indoor swimming pool, hamam and sauna. Guided by the endless floral inspiration of the mountains, the treatments feature organic ingredients including plants whose beauty, scents and properties are little miracles. In the evening, exceptional moments of conviviality and gastronomic pleasure are offered at La Ferme de Mon Père, serving dishes inspired by the French terroir.
In summertime, exploring Megève’s authentic charm feels a bit like being let in on a secret. Zannier Hotels Le Chalet turns into the coziest bed and breakfast in town, powered by a pampering concierge team. The interiors remain pared back and the atmosphere unhurried. Hiking, climbing, walking or paragliding the extraordinary natural wilderness allow to capture every moment of a summertime adventure in the French Alps.
Positioned above the picturesque village of Megève, every day at Zannier Hotels Le Chalet is an experience in itself. Perched just above the Haute-Savoie village, the medieval style square is only moments away. A one-hour drive from Geneva airport makes it the perfect destination for an alpine weekend to a longer stay. For special occasions and larger gatherings, Zannier Hotels Le Chalet can also be rented in its entirety throughout the year.
