Paul and Christine are mountain enthusiasts who have been skiing and hiking in the mountains all their lives.
They have purchased the chalet after falling in love with the surroundings, during a Christmas trip in 2021 and quickly decided to buy it after only two days of searching.
The chalet was the perfect find as it not only provides an ideal space for their extended family but also doubles as a business.
Christine's family is originally from Lyon and has owned a chalet in the Savoie region for many years. Paul has worked in the hospitality industry for many years and hosting yoga and other retreats comes naturally to him.
The couple loves being part of the local community of families that have lived there for centuries.
Paul and Christine enjoy hosting groups that take advantage of the chalet's charm, including roaring log fires every night, big dinners around the large dining table, lounging in the hot tub as the sun sets, and enjoying the yoga studio's serenity followed by hikes into the mountains to discover the surrounding beauty.
