The Domaine du Mont dâ€™Arbois covers 450 hectares in the French Alps at the heart of unspoilt countryside above MegĂ¨ve. It is surrounded by stunning landscapes in an impressive setting opposite Mont Blanc.
Created nearly a century ago by Baroness NoĂ©mie de Rothschild, the Domaine du Mont dâ€™Arbois has been the symbol of an exclusive lifestyle for three generations. It is an iconoclastic vision of the hotel business and luxury in which one of Europeâ€™s most prestigious financial families receives its guests with simplicity, elegance and discretion.
It is also a symbol of the familyâ€™s local commitment with projects intended to develop and promote the region.
First, an inspired idea. That of Baroness NoĂ©mie de Rothschild. In the early 1920s, this very energetic person was in charge of many charitable works and was looking for a place to relax in the Alps. She dreamed of a simple, intimate winter resort. She discovered the village of MegĂ¨ve, which was little known at the time, and decided to open a resort there. The Baroness opened the first hotel in 1922. Her intuition was spot on: MegĂ¨ve quickly gained an international reputation.
Today, Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild have transformed Mont dâ€™Arbois into a hotel group with a range of hotels, restaurants and recreational mountain activities. They are personally involved with the resort and have preserved the authenticity of the site by bringing in local artisans and promoting local architecture.

The quality of the reception at Mont dâ€™Arbois is not left to chance. It symbolises the relationship with others that is so characteristic of the Rothschild family in its financial dealings and philanthropic, cultural and sports commitments: a simple relationship built over time.
Knowing how to receive means knowing the customer, their tastes, their personality and their family; creating bonds to turn every meeting into a memorable experience; inviting everyone to return to a place where people know you and you feel at home.
The Rothschild familyâ€™s approach applies both to people and to regions. Its commitment has never weakened in MegĂ¨ve. Consistency has provided the Mont dâ€™Arbois landscapes and MegĂ¨ve with flourishing and well-balanced development that is both respectful of the area and of its Haute-Savoie heritage.
The Rothschild signature encompasses our concern and consideration for our clientsâ€™ wellbeing and beyond, to women and men, cultures, know-how and geographies.
