Pangea are awesome.

“Pangea are awesome. I have been using them for the past six years and they are my single contact for dealing with local government, utilities, maintenance, refurbishment and staffing of our chalet in Chamonix. This saves a huge amount of time and hassle and allows me to enjoy my time in the valley. I highly recommend them.”

Always a complete pleasure

"We started working with Pangea to renovate and manage an old chalet that we purchased six months ago. They have helped us to transform it completely into what is now a bright, modern, and lovely chalet. We are hugely impressed with the finish of the works and the warm and professional level of service they have provided both on the renovation and on the property management. Working with them has saved us a tremendous amount of hassle and has always been a complete pleasure. We look forward to continuing our relationship for a long time!"

Our experience was amazing.

“We contracted Pangea Services to renovate our apartment in Chamonix. Our experience was amazing. The work commenced on time, finished on time and was completed within the agreed budget. It was quite daunting to have a project under way so far from home. However, Justin’s detailed planning and regular reports kept us fully informed throughout the project. His attention to detail surpassed even our own attention to detail. The Pangea team all shared a commitment to the highest possible quality and we were delighted by all their work. We are delighted to commend Pangea Services to anyone seeking to have similar work carried out.”

Attention to detail and professionalism is exceptional

"Quite simply we wouldn't enjoy our time at our chalet as much were it not for Pangea. They have been by our side for a few years now and have given us the confidence to undertake substantial renovations and improve so many aspects of our lives here. Our chalet is always beautifully presented for our arrival, our car clean and fuelled, the hot tub hot and the wine on ice. Their attention to detail and professionalism is exceptional and we always know that our home in the Alps is in good hands"

Our overall experience with Pangea was first class.

“Our Chalet looks fantastic, but it wasn’t always the case. Just under a year ago we completed on a small chalet in Chamonix. We knew from the start that it needed a decent amount of renovation work and we also had a vision of how we wanted the end-result to look and work for us. We met Justin from Pangea in London and straight away it was obvious that he was experienced in both renovation and management and living and working in the Valley; taking his past property experience from London to the Alps. We had much fun going through the renovation plans many times to make sure that the end-result was right, as well as finding unexpected issues along the way.  For example it became clear that the existing electrics were out of date and not up to standard. We also found damp issues and some generally poor quality work that had been previously done. However, none of this fazed Justin in the least. It became clear that it needed to be completely taken back to basics to then renovate from the core structure. We also wanted to be sympathetic to our neighbours who live close, while trying to keep the cost as reasonable. Some things in the valley can be extremely expensive relative even to London. Post completion Justin soon had the demolition team on site and within 2 weeks it had been stripped bare and carted away with a minimum of fuss. Over the next five months it was a hive of activity, walls were moved, floors dug up, ceilings changed, bathrooms were created and the whole chalet was transformed from  a dated 1970’s chalet to a sparkling up to date, functional and beautiful home. The space has been used to maximum effect and now flows well with the addition of a TV room and a dining area. The standard of workmanship and finish is impressive; we both insulated and re-clad many walls with wood which looks great. Bathroom tiling and sanitary ware were fitted to a very high standard. The electrics all now work well, with internal light sensors providing efficient usage and a new oil boiler providing just enough heat in all rooms. We always felt that Justin and his team were on top of the issues and a slew of regular emails and photos gave us the comfort that all was proceeding as planned and discussed. We never had any issues with any of the work carried out and Justin has a critical eye that steers the quality of the outcome and ensures that the customer is satisfied. We also had a UK carpenter make some internal wardrobes and bunk beds and this was never an issue in terms of the two teams working seamlessly together. Our staircase was handmade in the valley and looks fantastic, truly an original piece of work created from old wood. Our snagging list was never an issue and truly minor in the grand scheme of the work done. We are extremely happy with the outcome of our project and Justin took all of the pain out of the experience. It would be impossible to self-manage a project like this from London and the quality of the finish would be very different. I also feel that we got decent value for money working with Justin. From the beginning, we had a budget in mind and apart from changes that we had to make, whole new electrics, boiler, boot warmer spring to mind, I am sure that we came in on target. We still have some work to do outside the chalet and we look forward to working with Justin on these this year. It also should be noted that Mimi at Pangea was excellent in helping us sort out many of the issues with utility companies and the local authority. As non-French speakers, this could be a real issue for us. Our overall experience with Pangea was first class and I doubt if anyone else in the valley could have provided a better end-result and value for money. I would be very happy to recommend Justin and his team to anyone else embarking on a similar project.”

Totally hassle free for us.

“The transformation to the top floor of our chalet is amazing. It looks like it has been that way forever due to excellent design and carpentry. It was also totally hassle free for us, who live in a different time zone, principally because of Pangea’s attention to detail and excellent ability to deliver!”

A completely painless experience.

“We appointed Pangea to undertake the refurbishment of our Argentiere apartment and they didn’t disappoint. We live in the UK so their “one-stop-shop” approach suited our requirement. They made the entire process a completely painless experience. Their project management and reporting kept us fully informed as the works progressed and the end-result provided a finish of exceptional quality. In addition, I would like to commend their property management team for their continued assistance resolving internet provider issues. This proved invaluable and would still be a problem to this day without their intervention!” I would have no hesitation in recommending Pangea to anybody looking to undertake refurbishment works of this nature remotely.”

A trusted, quality team.

“Pangea were recommended to me when I purchased my property in Chamonix and I have not looked back. They sorted the initial move in and continue to be my local representation doing everything from property checks and maintenance to organising tax payments. It’s great to have a trusted, quality team looking after my interests whilst I reside out of country.”

Incredibly helpful and efficient

"After buying a property in Les Houches with all sorts of problems… like dodgy electrics, really bad sound insulation and uninspiring interiors… we scoured the internet to find someone to help. We called Justin at Pangea who efficiently provided a very comprehensive and ‘water-tight’ quote to solve all our problems. We left him to it and headed back to the UK for four months. When we returned at the beginning of the ski season, our chalet was totally transformed to an impressively high standard. Justin has great attention to detail, employing reliable and reputable builders, electricians, carpenters and plumbers. He managed the renovation from start to finish, checking in with us when decisions had to be made and suggesting solutions when necessary. We have now spent two entire winter seasons in the chalet, we love it and although we now have many local friends and contacts we still prefer Pangea to keep an eye on the place when we are not there. We have found the team to be incredibly helpful and efficient in dealing with any chalet maintenance as well as helping us with ongoing minor queries like cancelling phone contracts and improving our internet connection."
