Beautifully complementing the existing Four Seasons Hotel Megève, which opened in December 2017, the historic five-star hotel of the Edmond de Rothschild family will extend the exceptional luxury offerings in Megève.

“It has been wonderful to partner with Four Seasons, an iconic luxury brand, on a project that has been part of my family’s history for many years. We have brought to life a vision for Megève that extends many generations, and created a hotel experience like none other in the region,” said Ariane de Rothschild, Chairwoman of the Board of Edmond de Rothschild Group.“I look forward to offering new and returning guests of Megève a new experience within this wonderful destination with Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois.”

The main chalet, renamed Chalet Eve, was bought by Edmond de Rothschild in 1960 to host a celebration to inaugurate the renovation of the family’s very first hotel, Le Palace des Neiges.
