There are 5 things in life that make me really happy, being, in no particular order....
My Family & Friends, Skiing, Paragliding, My Work (I am a Chartered Accountant running my own practice) and Hot Indian Food, and more Skiing.
Just under 10 years ago I discovered the joys of Skiing and Paragliding, and loved those activities so much so that I just had to buy myself a home right here in the Heart of the French Alps, to indulge my passions for those sports.
In the winter I now ski on these amazing mountains every day if I wish, and in the Spring & Summer soar high above them.
I love to share my home with people who share that same passion for these magnificent and wonderful mountains.
I spent 2 summers exploring the whole of the French Alps, and viewed over 100 properties until I finally found one that ticked all the boxes....'Chez Helene', located in a small friendly mountain village and just 15 mins drive to both the 3 Vallees ski domain (the Worlds largest linked ski domain) and also the Paradiski ski domain (the World's third largest ski domain). It fulfilled every wish I had for a property in the Alps. Made of wood ,with a separate self contained studio, plus 4 other bedrooms (I have 4 children and 2 grandchildren), and scope for another bedroom which I have since added, and further scope to extend and expand if I wish....With its own self contained Studio, I can be totally separate from my guests or totally involved, as they wish.
I know I have truly found my own piece of heaven here in Montagny, and I truly believe you will see it that way to.
I love my life, and love to host my winter ski guests. To watch my guests, some of whom have never skied before, experience the absolute joy of mastering their skis and conquering the slopes, is an absolute joy!
UPDATE 2015 - This July I invested in 2 ski apartments in the ski station of Plagne Bellecote, on the other side of the mountain to the Chalet, and am really excited about the coming ski season. with 8 weeks booked already. I see the studios as an extension of the Chalet, being just an hours ski or hours drive away, and some of my guests will be offered the opportunity to stay in both the Chalet and the studios, during their ski holidays, when they are free, to experience the two totally different environments.... the peace and quiet of the mountain village chalet, and the fun in resort buzz and doorstep Apres Ski when staying in the apartments.
Hope to see you soon :-)
