About Paul

We first came to Megeve some 25 years ago after numerous holidays and two weddings! We made the permanent move to our chalet here in 2005. Since then we have lived in Megeve year round and have never looked back. We are passionate about mountains and enjoy skiing, ski touring, mountain biking and hiking.

Before moving to France we ran an events catering company in the UK for 20 years and still have a passion for cooking and eating great food.

After spending ages looking for the perfect property we fell in love with the chalet at first sight. It has a fabulous, central location, great views, a garden, log fire, off-street parking. In short it ticked every box on our long list.

Paul purchased this chalet in 2005

What lovely people

  • 4 of 5

We were a family group of 8 adults 5 children and two infants. The chalet provided all the accommodation we needed. It is located in a lovely position and it has a mass of character.

But the owners and Chalet staff were amazing. Paul went out of his way to help us collect our ski equipemt. His wife Kate was always able to deal with our many questions via email. Matt and Carinda knocked our socks off with the meals throughout the week. We had to ask them to scale it back as we were all having trouble getting our ski pants to fit!

Matt and Carinda also coped well with providing the kids meals which were a great success.

I don't wish to bring the tone down but beware if you are going with infants. There are no pavements from the chalet to the start of the shops, so walking with a pushchair is challenging. This is only a problem if you are walking when skiers are trying to get to the slopes -

In summary, we had a great time and loved the attention and service we got from the owners and their staff.

Would we return - Darn right we will.

Chalet in Megeve is exactly what we were looking

  • 5 of 5

Our stay started with a lovely greeting from Paul and Kate. It got better as we found plenty of space for our luggage, a well outfitted kitchen, the beds to be very comfortable as well as beautiful balcony views.

The location is perfect, just a short walk to the busy center village without being too close. We would recommend this chalet for big families or large groups because everyone can spread out on 3 levels.

Unfortunately this chalet is now somewhat tired and the photographs on the website make it look much better than it is. Actually thought our minibus had dropped us off at the wrong place. Location-wise it is ideal, a short bus ride to Mont d'Arbois, and within walking distance of the centre. If renting the whole chalet, please be warned that the 3 bedrooms upstairs all have sloping ceilings with wooden beams and are not ideal for adults. Food below average compared to previous chalets I have stayed in. All in all, very disappointing for the price paid.

Great chalet, great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic ski week and returning to this clean, comfortable and above all very homely and welcoming chalet at the end of a wonderful days skiing was a bonus. The chalet girls were great, nothing was too much trouble and the homemade cakes and evening meals were sumptuous, we will definitely return in Spring/summer to do some walking in this lovely area. The village of Megeve is beautiful. The whole holiday experience was great. Kate and Paul (owners) were very friendly and well informed on the best places to ski. Simply great.

Fantastic Ski Wek and Stay At

  • 4 of 5

Great stay at this very well run chalet. The owners Kate and Paul were very helpful and the Chalet was clean, warm and well equipped. The Chalet girls were lovely and did a fantastic job making great homemade cakes and wonderful homemade meals at the end of a long day on the ski slopes of Megeve. The actual town of Megeve is unusual, unique and has a charm of its own. We love it here, and will definitely return to this chalet in the winter and we would also be interested in visiting in the summer months to sample more of this beautiful area under the ever present Mont Blanc.
