Four Seasons to Introduce Luxury Experience in the French Alps with Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois, Megève, A Four Seasons Hotel
Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois, Megève, A Four Seasons Hotel, the historic 5-star hotel of the Edmond de Rothschild family, will open their doors on December 13, 2019 as a Four Seasons experience. The new addition will be a sister property to existing Four Seasons Hotel Megève, which opened in December 2017.
The timeless decoration of alpine chalets remains throughout, with wood-framed windows, exposed ancient beams, aged pine wood, rough stone and traditional alpine fabrics.
According to Christian Clerc, President, Worldwide Hotel Operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the guest experience will be enhanced even more with expansive, beautifully-appointed chalets as well as a Michelin-starred dining experience at Prima, now officially under the Four Seasons high-end brand.
“Together with the Baroness Ariane de Rothschild, we have elevated the history, elegance and charm of Megève to extraordinary new heights,” said Clerc.
Located at the foot of the ski slopes of Mont d’Arbois in the upper region of Megève, and only two kilometres from the existing hotel, Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois are named after Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild’s first three daughters.
Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois (Opening: December 13th – April 14th) have been successfully modernised while conserving the charm of bygone eras. Each chalet features its own personality; Chalet Eve has kept its traditional style, Chalet Noémie features classic luxury décor and refined elegance and Chalet Alice offers a bohemian chic atmosphere. Winter rates from EUR 660 per night.
Ariane de Rothschild, deeply involved in the project and the development of the luxury destination in the French Alps, commissioned the renovation from Thierry Curty, under the artistic direction of Pierre-Yves Rochon, who was also the designer in each of the Four Seasons hotels in France.
