The French Alps, a privileged destination for HNWI
No need to look behind fir trees or for footprints in the fresh snow at the onset of winter. High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI) don’t hide, quite the contrary, they find themselves in their favorite resorts in the French Alps.
These destinations chosen by big names in the worlds of business, art, and entertainment may be scattered around the world, but from the first snowfall of the season, they head to the most beautiful panoramas and most prestigious resorts in the Alps. We'll explain why.
Because it's already written in your family history, because its atmosphere is unique, because, despite worldwide notoriety, Megève has managed to remain this little authentic village nestled in the heart of Mont-Blanc country.
The magnificent chalets respect the Savoyard architecture and the environment. Wood, stone, and noble materials are highlighted in Rochebrune, Mont d’Arbois and the Jaillet. Above all, it is also a chic and elegant meeting place of HNWI, not to mention where the Allard spindle was created in 1930. Even with a helmet and a mask, skiers respect the latest trends. Megève is a resort for skiers and non-skiers alike. We come to Megève to share moments together, with family and friends. So we find ourselves in a good mood on the slopes for lunch in casual attire. Megève is and will always be the resort of savoir-vivre.
A vacation home in Megève is necessary if...
- You like winters as much as summers in Megève
- You learned to ski at the Piou Piou, your descendants will do the same
- You have a date at the village square with Santa Claus on the same day every year.
