An upmarket Alpine paradise twinned with a sedate, all-season retreat, Megève/St-Gervais makes much of its mountainous location, 15km due west of Mont Blanc (4810m).

Megève was developed in the 1920s for Baroness de Rothschild of the famous banking family. Today it's an Alpine daydream made real: horse-drawn carriages and exquisitely arranged boutique windows spill into cobbled, medieval-style streets lined with chalets. In winter, Megève attracts a well-off crowd (including lots of families), but the scene is very laid-back in summer. Slightly lower down the valley, unpretentious St-Gervais-les-Bains is linked to Chamonix by the legendary Mont Blanc Express train. Most of the town is undistinguished 20th-century sprawl, but the lovely central square, with its baroque church, has a distinctly Alpine feel.

Both villages access the 445km Domaine Évasion Mont Blanc ski area.
