Make the most of your time in the French Alps
As your single point of contact, we can ensure that all the practical needs of your property are taken care of, so everything is perfectly in place for you to enjoy yourself when you arrive. Even more than that, we have all the local knowledge and connections to help you get the most out of your stay.
Our Gold, Silver and Bronze plans ensure there is always a solution that will work for you.
Our plans are based on a system of time allocation and from the offset we will work with you to help establish the most cost effective solution for your requirements. How you use your property and the complexity of its requirements will determine which plan is appropriate for you.
All our plans are designed to offer you the maximum flexibility and we are happy for you to tell us where and when you would like our time to be used. We will always offer the benefit of our experience to help ensure we provide a proactive approach to all your management needs.
Most requirements can be serviced via our Gold, Silver or Bronze plans but if your property is larger or has complex requirements, or you are simply looking for a more bespoke management solution, we can tailor a Platinum property management package that is just right for you.
Our Platinum plans offer owners requiring management time that typically exceeds our Gold plan a cost-effective solution. In our experience, a continuous service plan of this type works out to be preferable to simply paying for additional management time by the hour. The Platinum plan allows owners to agree a fixed monthly fee for services they require, thereby ensuring greater cost control over their home.
Our service plans:
The Bronze plan is available for as little as 50€ /month
The Silver plan is available for 100€ /month
The Gold plan is available for 150€ /month
The Platinum plan – prices available on request

It is not uncommon for our clients to keep an eye on the weather in the valley in hope of spotting a window of opportunity for an impromptu visit. Naturally this may lead to some concern if the conditions are particularly extreme, so we are here to let you know that everything is under control.
Emergency response management
Having a secured property is crucial. We can be on-call for security calls from your house alarms to help coordinate security visits or emergency service response. We find this is an essential backup for owners who are often in a different country and therefore not able to respond in person.
Punctual property checks
Regular property checks are essential, both from a practical and insurance perspective. Most insurance policies stipulate that properties must not remain unoccupied for extended periods of time. We will ensure regular visits are made to your property, checking all is in order and providing you with complete peace of mind.

Not to mention the fact that we can ensure your favourite selection of beverages are available for you to enjoy the second you step through the door.
Relaxing in front of an open fire or a log burning stove is the perfect way to unwind.
