  • Description


    We are a young couple living in the beautiful village of Tignes Les Brevieres running a B&B/ chalet that has been in the family since the 1980’s.
    Alex is completely bi-lingual (French & English), Roos is completely bi-lingual as well (Dutch & English), both of them take care of the chalet's interior and guests year round. We are both meat eaters, enjoy a glass of wine in the evening and smoke.
    There are two Siamese cats (Skye & Brev) and a little ginger cat (Loki) who are very friendly. If you do not like cats or are allergic to cats this is not the workaway for you.
    We also have dogs visiting every now and then and we are open to having well behaved, cat friendly workaways doggies here.
    Your work will mainly consist out of helping us run the B&B; cleaning rooms, making beds, service etc.

    We will consider any application at any time period for the following:
    Host: help clean, make up rooms/ bathrooms and service
    Handyman: someone who's handy and can fix some little bits and bobs around the house

    We are based in the wonderful Espace Killy resort that has lots of activities great for escaping the city. In the village there is plenty of hiking, mountain biking, tennis, pentaque and for keen cyclists we are in cycling distance to a number of mountain Cols including the Col D'Iseran and Petit St Bernard. There are lots of climbing spots and fantastic white water rafting a short trip down the road. There is a French bar in the village that is always open.

    We always try and work out a work plan that is flexible and fair, so you can enjoy those amazing activities in a beautiful alpine paradise.
