Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois in France

by Patricia Nugent



At the foot of the Mont d’Arbois slopes – just a short distance from the ski lifts – experience classic Alpine charm in our winter-only Four Seasons retreat. 

If the storied past and refined culture of skiing excite you, look no further than Les Chalets du Mont d’Arbois. Reflective of the rich heritage of the Rothschild family, who a century ago established the town of Megeve as a ski destination for well-heeled international travelers—today the charming village offers an opulent, fashionable getaway.

Along with the spa at Les Chalets’ sister hotel, the Four Seasons Hotel Megeve, both spas take their cue from the surrounding terrain at the base of Mont Blanc. Guests enjoy sweeping views of the snow-capped, pine tree-dotted landscape from luxurious heated indoor-outdoor swimming pools. Those seeking a welcome break after a long day on the slopes will find it in stylish and well-appointed treatment rooms including a duo room, and a wellness area comprised of a hammam, sauna and whirlpool.

Both spas have recently launched new treatments to unwind and relax this winter including invigorating well-being experiences.

Guests can embark on a sensory journey to the heart of the Alps with The Eclat Alpin treatment, which features a body massage with invigorating silver fir essential oil, followed by a facial with silver fir buds and handpicked cornflowers. A Stroll Through Megève treatment features a silver fir body scrub and moisturizing body and face massage with organic edelweiss extract. Senses are awakened, the mind is soothed, and skin is left visibly refreshed.

CBD-infused treatments are also popular, using the French skincare brand Ho Karan.

Looking for a dose of detox, to boost circulation and pump up metabolism? Reserve your appointment for the new Renata Franca Draining Massage. Quick, firm strokes and pumping actions promote lymph flow and are said to boost the immune system, while toning the body. For a dazzling pas de deux, couple the massage with an anti-aging facial that harnesses the power of semi-precious gemstones to massage and cleanse, leaving skin radiant and—dare we say it?—sparkling.

And for those who don’t wish to leave their room, no worries, the thoughtful staff can bring the spa to you by delivering a caddy tray with a selection of natural bath products to pour into your tub, promising a soothing and private escape. Whether looking to gently detoxify the body or relieve tension and muscle soreness, this in-room experience is the ultimate cocooning bath ritual. fourseasons.com
