Geneva airport transfers

Megeve is a very good option for ski weekends and short ski breaks because it is only just over an hour away from Geneva.  We have our own fleet of minibuses and are fully licensed for airport transfers.

A huge ski area, with inexpensive lift pass

The Megeve ski area is huge. It has more than 400 km of piste and is one of the largest resorts in France, yet the skipass costs at least 50Euros less than other major ski resorts.

The most charming ski resort in France

The village is traditional, picturesque and friendly. Although Megeve has a reputation as the most chic ski resort in France, you can stay at our catered chalet hotels and experience Megeve at very reasonable prices. Our guests enjoy low bar prices and there are no extras for wine, tea, coffee etc. All our ski accommodation is near the town centre and ski lifts.
