Megève is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes
region in south-eastern France with a population of over 4,000 residents. The
town is well-known due its popularity as a ski resort near the Mont-Blanc in
the French Alps. Conceived in the 1920s as a French alternative to Saint-Moritz
by the Rothschilds, it was the first purpose-built resort in the Alps.
Originally it was a prime destination for the French Aristocracy. It remains
one of the most famous and fanciest ski resorts in the world
