The Main Chalet and apartments are available individually or as a block booking. This flexible layout allows for accommodation from two to sixteen people.
The chalet is situated in a quite cul-de-sac five minutes walk from the village centre and the lift station serving the Mont d’Arbois ski area, and ten minutes walk from the ski lift serving the Rochebrune ski area.
Megève Chalet is in a traditional Savoyard town that has a pedestrianised centre around a 13th century medieval church. With interesting narrow streets to explore and a wide variety of boutiques, delicatessens, bars and restaurants, Megève is still occupied by many of the original families such as the Perinets and Grossets but with all the amenities of a modern ski resort.
The chalet was clean, spacious and practical. Everything that we needed was there. A nice gadget was that the TV had a build-in DVD player. We were a little bit worried about the fact that we slept next to the garage and the washing room, but we heard nothing. Perhaps because you can leave all your skying equipment in ski-rental shops on the slopes. If I should mention one remark than it will be the road to the Rochebrune slope. This is every morning a walk uphill from 10 minutes, but when you arive at the slopes, your muscles are already warm... Nevertheless, I would certainly stay at Le Gai Tourbillon the next time I will go to Megève.
We have an excellent stay in Gai Tourbillon. We rented Apartment 2 and everything was ok. The challet is located 5-7 minut walk from the centre and the skilift Arbois. All food shops ( bakery, supermarket etc) as well as ski rental points are very close ( 5 minutes walk). The challet is clean and comfortable - just for 2 adults and 2 children. I fully recommend Gai Tourbillon.
We arrived at this stunning location, I ski all over the world and this is my favourite ! To our beautiful, spacious, immaculate apartment with everything on hand, a few minutes walk to the ski shop, slopes, abundance of restaurants and the shops(every womans dream) everything was perfect from the moment we arrived till the moment we left, the owners were very helpful on all aspects and I would definitely recommend this property, I cannot wait to teturn. Many many thanks xx
We stayed in Apartment 2 (the 2-bed apartment) for one week. The apartment is very well appointed, with good quality furnishings and equipment. The quality of the bedlinen and towels is excellent. It was warm and comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for necessary baths after tackling the slopes. It's about a 10 minute, reasonably level walk to the centre (except for the short uphill walk immediately outside the chalet), The information provided was helpful - with just one qualification on the recommendation of the restaurant Flocons Village. We went there and had a dreadful evening with service virtually non-existent - several customers got fed up of waiting and left. But maybe they were having an off day, last year we had a good evening there.
Le Gai Tourbillon is situated 500 metres from the centre of the Megève ski resort and village. Situated in a quiet location the chalet is within short walking distance of the ski lifts and slopes, shops, restaurants, bars and local amenities.
Megève offers incredible holidays all year round, with cross-country and downhill skiing in the winter; mountain biking, horse-riding and walking in the summer.

Great for family holidays with lots to do and explore, Megève is also an ideal getaway for an intimate rendezvous. From delightful restaurants tucked away in the narrow side streets to the world-class sporting facilities, Megève has it all.
All this under the breath taking scenery that is the French Alps including Mont Blanc, western Europe's highest mountain.

Off the slopes there is plenty for those wanting a day off or prefer things a little more leisurely. There's shopping, fabulous bars and bistros, bowling, dog-sledding and so much more. With a host of events such as Winter Polo and Winter Golf even spectators are spoilt for choice.
