Chalet-Style Hotel Re-Opens Its Doors In Megeve, France

After a two-year long renovation, Hotel L’Arboisie from Megeve, France is ready to mesmerize its guests this winter with its new interior design which is more charming and welcoming than ever. The renovation of the 4 star hotel was completed by interior designer Chantal Peyrat. The overall style of the hotel is similar to that of a large chalet. In fact, it’s meant to look and feel like an oversized family home where the common areas such as the lobby, restaurants and social gathering spaces are shared by everyone.  A wood-burning fireplace in the lobby welcomes everyone into a super cozy atmosphere.

The hotel is situated close to the Mont d’Arbois Massif and this offers gorgeous panoramic viewsView in gallery

The hotel has in total 69 chalet-style bedrooms and suites ranging from 20 to 144 square meters, all redesigned with a traditional-retro style and a focus on simple and natural materials, colors and finishes. One term that can accurately capture the essence of the hotel’s new look would be “authentic”. In addition to the bedroom suites and the lounge areas, the hotel also has two restaurants which serve local specialties and are as charming as the rest of the chalet. The Cellier is decorated with warm and muted tones and features comfortable benches with cozy wool cushions and Chez Jean has solid wood table and an overall elegant and retro feel.
