When one speaks of Megève, one name immediately comes to mind and rings out clearly like the bells of the church square: the Mont Blanc, the hotel that greets the summits.

The Hotel Mont-Blanc, at the peak of hospitality for over a century boasts a past worthy of the greatest Parisian palaces... At the time, Jean Cocteau had even nicknamed it “the twenty-first arrondissement of Paris".

In 1960, Roger Vadim chose this already legendary hotel for the location to shoot his film adaptation of “Dangerous Liaisons" with Jeanne Moreau and Gérard Philippe. Frescoes and original drawings, lithographs, sculptures and quotes engraved in the wood are all nods to the heyday of Megève, to Jean Cocteau, to the artists and to the wild energy brought in by the 60s...
