As with the dining and the shopping, spa facilities are world class in Megeve. There are a dozen top notch spas and health and beauty salons in the town, so choosing between them may be difficult.

The Flocons de Sel Spa (+33 (0)4 50 21 49 99; has an unusual approach, as the spa endeavours to recreate in beauty treatments what the chef in the same business’s famous Flocons de Sel gastronomic restaurant creates in his dining room. “The theme of the spa treatments is fun and inspired by the aromatic ingredients used in the restaurant which are themselves a tribute to the many savours and colours of the mountain.” says a company statement.

In the Pure Altitude Spa the treatments are centred on one small flower, the Edelweiss, which was a key ingredient for French beauty pioneer Jocelyne Sibuet when she created her Ferme de Beauty in the resort in 1990.

There are half a dozen others as well as beauty salons, well-being centres, parfumeries and numerous consultants and therapists dedicating to make you fitter, more relaxed in body and soul and more beautiful, if that’s possible.
