About Us

Hi my name is David.

As I get older I live to make every day an adventure. Living in the Alps fulfils that desire!

I love to ski and paraglide, and my heart is here, exploring, skiing & paragliding in these beautiful mountains.

In recent years I discovered the joys and thrills of skiing in Canada, and at the same time, the joys of paragliding in Slovenia. Since then I developed an ever increasing desire to live in the French Alps. I spent two summers exploring from Chamonix to Annecy & Les Arcs to Courchevel, paragliding as I went, and through local estate agents viewed over 100 properties, including barns, chalets and plots of building land, until I eventually found this, my dream chalet. 'Chez Helene' has a really warm homely and inviting feel and I instantly realised the potential for sharing it, and my love of the mountains, with family/friends and invited guests. It is the ideal base for a holiday throughout the year, and appeals to everyone who simply loves the mountains. With both the 3 Vallees and Paradiski mountain domains on my doorstep, I know I really have found a little piece of heaven on Earth, and I am still pinching myself.

Chez Helene is located in a small & friendly traditional mountain village, on the sunny side of the Bozel valley, and provides the perfect base to explore and enjoy the amazing and stunning mountains and valleys of the French Alps. Being just a stones throw away from arguably the very best ski resorts in the world, with over 1000km of groomed pistes here on my doorstep, and with numerous world class paragliding launch sites just a short drive away, I really do love my new home here in France. With 6 bedrooms, 8 double beds & transport for up to 15 guests, the chalet comfortably caters for large families and groups. With a 75%+ rebooking rate, in just my second year, I am confident that anyone who comes to stay in the chalet will want to return!
