Celebrated designer and artist Jocelyne Sibuet has updated the Mont-Blanc—situated right in Megève's center—and added her classy touch to another three hotels in town (including Les Fermes de Marie and the Fer à Cheval), as well as similarly stylistic masterpieces in Lyon and Provence. In the Mont-Blanc's former heyday in the 1950s and '60s, wild-child artist and author Jean Cocteau held court here. Rita Hayworth and Prince Ali Khan were caught having a tryst, and Brigitte Bardot was a regular guest. Two of the 40 rooms and suites have Cocteau murals, and the decoration overall is a Tyrolean-Provençal blend, with fabrics in rich cream, dark green, and burgundy red. The hotel's restaurant, Les Enfants Terribles, was independently run for many years, but the Sibuet empire reclaimed it and transformed it into a Parisian brasserie.
