Each year we welcome staff back and recruit anew for our core Val d'Isere based team of 30 staff. All share one magic ingredient: a passion for extraordinary customer service and a broad smile (well most of the time).

Is it time for a change?

Time to swop your urban landscape for a glorious mountain view and the restorative qualities of mountain air? Time to pass up Pret a Manger for the real delicacies of Savoyarde cuisine where cheese is produced from the cows who graze just beyond your doorstep? Time to say “Au Revoir” to the sweaty bus ride, in favour of the open top chair lift entre amis. A lunch hour poised on top of the Solaise Mountain, topped with a chocolat chaud for good measure. Late nights trading stories with fellow seasonnaires accompanied by a cheeky ‘digestif'…
