A room at Les Fermes de Marie in Megève, France

An alpine village at the foot of Mont-Blanc, Megève was "discovered" by the Rothschilds and subsequently conceived as a French alternative to St. Moritz in the early 1900s. While this ski resort's high-profile heyday may have passed, those in the know consider this a good thing. Featuring wood chalets, cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriages, Megève is surrounded by hundreds of miles of marked ski trails. Its finest asset, though, is its mountain glamour, which is best exemplified at Les Fermes de Maries. One of three luscious Sibuet hotels in Megève, this hamlet of nine chalets looks like the chic love child of Heidi (girl of the Alps, not Klum) and Philippe Starck. Oh, how we'd love to be snowbound here.
