Epic Europe



The historic Mont-Blanc hotel is part of the hotel empire of Jocelyne and Jean-Louis Sibuet, native Savoyards who have become known for their imaginative hotel projects. Experience the "new wave" ambiance that pervaded when Jean Cocteau, the avant garde poet used to frequent the Mont-Blanc. After the war Megève became a favored playground for Parisians in the flush of post-war partying. Stage and film stars flocked to the beautiful alpine village, and by the 1950s Megève was such a chic social scene that Jean Cocteau nicknamed it "the 21st arrondissement of Paris".

The favorite haunt of Cocteau and his coterie in Megève was the Mont-Blanc, grandest of the village hotels, whose wood-balconied chalet facade still faces the central Place de l'Eglise. A recent restoration has buffed up its luster, in the elegant champagne bar, Le Georges, comfortable leather chairs are grouped around antique tables and chests, knotty pine walls are adorned with stag antlers, and framed drawings by Cocteau hang on the walls.


ROOMS: The new suites have been reinterpreted to pay tribute to some of the artists to whom the hotel owes its fame, featuring a new style. The 38 rooms are chic and rusitc, with a mix of English, Austrian and Savoyard antiques. Some walls gleam with polished old wood, others are covered in warm-hued fabrics including checks and plaids; table lamps cast their glow on inviting wing chairs and pillow-filled sofas. Bathrooms, spacious and modern even if under sloping wooden ceilings, glitter with up-to-the-minute fittings.


SPA & WELLNESS: The Pure Altitude Spa in the lower level is a setting fit for a Snow Queen, walls look carved from ice and snow, and treatment rooms simulate forest groves, with walls of bark-covered birch trunks. The spa's skin care line, Pure Altitude, is also sold in pharmacies and department stores throughout France. And for your comfort, there is also an indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, a sauna and fitness area.


FOOD & DRINKS: The restaurant, “Les Enfants Terribles” – named for a Cocteau novel and film – was restored a few years ago to its original 1950s look, with tobacco-colored walls, red lamps and stylish black-and-white chairs. A Cocteau mural brightens up the bar, and the extensive menu retains the restaurant's signature, and excellent, steak au poivre.


LOCATION: The hotel faces the central Place de l'Eglise at the heart of Megève village. Few steps away from the cable cars and easy access to the luxury shops and village square.

  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
