What it is
A storybook 33-room, 10-chalet retreat in summer and winter with a stone walled spa, four locavore restaurants (including one Michelin star) and bottomless experiences.
What it isn't
Cold. Interiors are adorned as if for the pages of Elle Decor, with blonde wood walls and curated art and objet.
What we think
Before you ask: yes, the skiing here is phenomenal. It’s Megève, after all. But L’Alpaga champions plenty of other exploits, too, whether you’re here as snow swirls or the summer sun casts its golden glow over the verdant foothills, including private flights over Mont Blanc, fat bike rides and dog sledding. Classic guest rooms are equipped with everything one could covet, including tufted headboards and a tub, within their 279 square foot floor plans; to sprawl out a bit, we can’t get enough of the Prestige suites, which are nearly 400 square feet plus a private terrace with log seating. What better place to get your caffeine jolt while planning your day on the slopes?
You're here because
You love to feel like a local on vacay, and the hotel is stocked with art by regional artists—including Gabriel Micheletti, Karl Machatschek and Gwenaëlle Grandjean.
You dreamt of tasting the Alps on every plate at La Table de L’Alpaga, the hotel’s Michelin starred restaurant. And you are. Cuddled in a forest green velvet banquette, each course is a revelation that whispers with the terroir of the land.
