We are primarily a winter vacation company that rents vacation properties in the alpine resort of Champoussin and Les Crosets. We offer a wide variety of services to our guests from cooking and cleaning to ski guiding and animation. We are open year round and looking for outdoor enthousiasts to help us take care of our guests.
Through out the year we have a number of friends, and former employes that stay with us long and short term. Most of them like me have travelled and worked around the world. We are always willing to share our knowledge, experiences and a few amusing ( sometimes embarrassing ) stories from our journeys. This is a small town where everyone knows everyone. And we hope that you will enjoy and feel welcome in our little community.
