“You realise quite quickly that Chamonix is a magical place. A place in an outstanding natural environment, with things going on all year round and where you can have great fun doing all kinds of sports. You can really live to the full here.

My path was always mapped out really. I did training courses elsewhere and I went abroad for a while, but I always came back – it’s as simple as that.

The Hôtel Albert 1er used to be the Hôtel du Chemin de Fer, founded by a former carriage driver. This building was already full of history and we’ve added a very personal touch. Walking through it is a bit like leafing through our family album. We’re really proud of the result.

We are all really interested in the environment  and, at our level, we have introduced some environmentally-friendly initiatives. For example, we’ve implemented a water filtering system that means that we no longer have to buy any bottled water.   ”

“There’s some old pasture land above Servoz. We used to take the cows up there and now it’s the sheep that graze there in the summer. You have to walk for two hours to reach it. It’s a great place for chilling out… so quiet. “
