New heights: Four Seasons to open its first European mountain hotel in Megeve
Four Seasons, the world famous luxury hotel operator is set to open its first hotel in the European mountains on December 15th of this year in Megève, France. This follows Edmond de Rothschild investing €100 million into the hotel. The Megève ski resort was founded by the Rothschild in 1920.
"I wanted to make sure that what the previous generations of Rothschilds have built can live on in the future" commented Ariane de Rothschild on the investment deal. Featuring 55 rooms, the hotel will have a total floor area of 14,000 square meters and the largest spa in the French Alps according to Four Seasons.
In addition to boasting a large spa area with a pool that allows its guests to swim out through an opening glass door, the Megève Four Seasons will also feature a large Children's club as well as the only ski valet service in Megève. With a total of 55 rooms, the hotel will have 14 suites, the majority of which come complete with a balcony and a chimney.
The deal sees Four Seasons overtake the management of the entire Domaine du Mont D'Arbois, including its golf, four restaurants and previous landmark hotel, le Chalet du Mont-d'Arbois built in 1970. The main hotel will be located at a height of 1,350m and is made up of 4 large, brand new structures completed earlier this year, in time for the winter opening.
"Megeve has been a popular destination for generations of in-the-know skiers and lovers of the outdoors. Now, with the debut of Four Seasons in the region, holiday makers can look forward to a new level of personally customized service within the contemporary comforts of an all-new hotel" said General Manager, François Arrighi, who previously ran the famed Les Airelles hotel in Courchevel.
