My ethos on chalet holidays

Chalet holidays should be fun, relaxing and memorable

After 10 winter seasons in the French and Austrian Alps working in all roles from Chalet Host to Resort Manager, whilst working as a Lawyer in London in the summer, the time came to make a permanent move to the mountains. The opportunity to become the new owner of Alpine Ethos came at the perfect time and I am really excited to continue the great service Alpine Ethos has been providing for the past 8 years.

My aim is to continue the high standards set by Heather and Andy by offering affordable, relaxed mountain holidays in comfortable surroundings in the beautiful traditional alpine village of Les Allues. I am an avid skier, ski tourer, hiker, cyclist and paraglider so I am passionate about the mountains and sharing them with others. I, along with my great resort team look forward to welcoming you to one of the best ski resorts in the world.

If you love the idea of an owner run chalet holiday but would like something a little more high-end you should check out our friends at Delicious Mountain who offer luxury chalets in Meribel.

The team


At Bristol University I joined the climbing club and started skiing which led to my first winter season in Courchevel in 2004 as a Chalet Host working for a family orientated chalet company. I really caught the ski bug, and what started out as a gap year season has turned into a lifestyle and a career!

After a 2 year gap during which I trained as a Solicitor, the call of the mountains was too strong and the summer London life had to go - it wasn't greatly missed! I love the mountain lifestyle, and can be found skiing, hiking, biking or paragliding most days.

I now live in the Alps year round and can't wait to start offering the relaxed, quality mountain holidays, and getting more brilliant guest reviews that Alpine Ethos has become associated with. See you in the mountains soon!
