Working with The Boutique Chalet Company
We treat every relationship personally. We’re not formulaic and recognise that one size never fits all. We work with each owner to fulfill their particular objectives.
When you visit your home we look after you like a VIP. You’ll benefit from the same service as any guest of ours, but with an even greater level of personal detail. We maintain the property. Our development experience and technical ability means we know how to look after your property. We employ maintenance staff in-house and have access to a wide range of specialist tools which reduces our reliance on third parties.
Strong financial returns
Our brand, industry relationships and proven sales record means that you will enjoy a strong financial return on your investment. We’re fully registered in both the UK and France meaning we can also support you with TVA reclaims on build and renovation costs.
You’ll have access to specific storage facilities and our staff will diligently set-up your personal effects such that when you walk into your home it is as if you never left. Owners can also access a dedicated online area of our website to review their postal mail and see the latest financial reports for the property. We can also support you in financial bookkeeping for your ownership entity and through our extended network assist with ongoing updates and developments to your property.
How We Work
How do we work? By asking how you would like to work. We approach each relationship uniquely because for most of our owners the decision to operate their property is a deeply personal one. Whilst the commercial success of the venture is important, perhaps more so is your personal enjoyment of the time you spend in your home, and of course its correct and proper upkeep.
To achieve this our typical agreements afford the owner a high level of flexibility. We don’t ask that you limit your use, or encourage you towards any set periods. The economics of this are structured in a specific budget for your property which takes account of planned revenue and all operating costs. This will then deliver you a variable return based on the success of the property and your own personal usage. This approach is grounded in the hotel industry and ensures that our interests are aligned in the successful operation of the property.
Values Core to Our Success
This isn’t just ‘work’ for us, it’s our life. Every member of our team shares a deep-rooted passion for our industry, our properties and our service.
Hospitality is a dynamic fast-moving industry. The expectations of our clients change every year, and we do too. Many of our competitors still operate to a formula dating back more than a decade, but we strive to offer guests the very best of the old alongside the new to deliver a truly contemporary mountain experience.
Our directors have experience of advising FTSE 100 businesses, major property developments and new start-ups. We build this experience into all that we do. We leverage the latest technology and set out structured processes to underpin business performance. In a world of talk, it’s nice to know you’re in safe hands.
A Complete Approach
Our approach can adapt to your requirements as they change over time.
Sales & Marketing
You will benefit from a world class Sales & Marketing strategy delivered by our own in-house team and also our international sales partners. We have an extensive client database that spans back to 2005 and loyal clients that return year-on-year.
We only recruit the very best people and our training programme for all roles is second-to-none. We always look to build a diverse team of experienced and mature individuals who share our passion and professionalism.
We don’t simply watch from afar, our management team are based in the Alps year round. We have a staffed office and warehouse in Les Gets from which our operation is managed. This also allows us to provide additional secure storage for owners, be that for personal valuables or perhaps a collection of fine wine which you don’t want left in your property.
Alongside the operation of your property we provide a property management service to oversee a programme of daily, weekly, monthly and annual maintenance as well as the development of the property.
PROPERTY CONSULTANCY SERVICES
As well as our core Property Management and Operation services, we also offer a range of Property Consultancy services to help clients with any aspect of property investment in the Alps. With many of the properties we manage, we have been involved with the owners from the outset, long before the doors first opened and in many cases even before the foundations were laid.
Whilst it is easy to find companies or individuals in the Alps who will offer opinion, our team has real experience in the luxury property market. We have acted as the primary project manager on multiple builds with individual budgets in excess of 5m EUR. We don’t work alone however, a key strength is our network of contacts with leading architects, interior designers and of course build contractors, all of whom will have a vital role to play in a typical project.
Our services can cover:
Market Assessment and Aquisition
Concept and Design Consultation
Sales and Asset Disposal
You don’t need to go it alone. When you choose to work with us you will have the world at your fingertips. We are proud to work with some of the biggest names in the industry.
