Located in the French Alps, Megeve has all of 4,000 permanent residents though it’s booming in the winter (it came into its own in the early 1900s, when the Rothschilds started coming and everyone else followed). It’s also home to this culinary hot spot, which has earned three Michelin stars—it justifies the trip, whether you’re strapping on skis or not. Helmed by Emmanuel Renaut (The Crillon, Claridges), who earned his first Michelin star in his early ’30s, the food here is as gorgeous as it is delicious. The Relais & Chateux accommodations are both modern and modest—besides a handful of suites, there are some small houses for rent, too.
