About Us

Some information about who we are and what we do

Choices in patisserie window

The local small and fabulous patisseries run by passionate and expert chefs provide a choice and quality in fare that cannot be rivalled by the mass output found in the supermarkets. We believe in applying the same ethos to providing ski accommodation and holidays all year in independently owned properties. We will try our very best to provide great service to support a choice which is not only highly tempting, but also lovingly crafted by concerned owners to a higher standard than is usual in the mass holiday market.

We are a family partnership providing a friendly, great service since 2010. We started with our own apartment in Annecy overlooking the lake and have gradually grown with the bookings and management for other owners of holiday accommodation in the Tarentaise area. We provide a very personalised and friendly service to both owners and guests, whilst at the same time have a professional outlook and are able to take credit card payments via a secure accredited portal .We do not add on extra service charges as with many of the big portals. They make claims that this guarantees the existence of their properties and provides financial assurance. In our case the first is faintly ridiculous as we know our properties intimately, regularly check on them and in many cases have been involved right down to making the cushions - we know they exist and we know our owners! The second claim they make, upon investigation, provides little above the security you already have using your credit card - we use a secure professional portal providing full financial security.

guest services

We are here to help guests in whatever way we can. In the past this has meant providing maps with instructions in French to give to taxi drivers for guests less confident in their linguistic abilities, through to suggesting some favourite restaurants for a special dinner,
We have access to discounts on ski passes and ski hire in most locations.
We have great service people in each location who are on call for problems and who will also clean the property after guests leave so they enjoy a relaxed and hassle free holiday.
In some locations we can also provide extra services such as a shop ordered before guests arrive and left in the property, or homemade meals and half board options.

owner services

We offer a complete holiday rental bookings management and advertising service, for owners looking for a more personalised approach to letting their property. The service includes all advertising and managing bookings from initial enquiry, through payment on the secure portal to assisting travellers whilst on holiday.

In addition we are able to help with various extra services - in advising during setup of the property as a holiday rental and actually being involved and hands on if necessary - anything from making cushions and curtains, buying and delivering furniture and kitchenware through to decorating and providing useful information folders full of local tips and important instructions.

If we are unable to help ourselves then we have access to a great range of support in all of our locations and can put owners in touch with, or bring in, electricians, broadband providers, maintenance people and chimney sweeps - whatever anyone is likely to need to keep the property running in perfect condition.
