Mountain Heaven, the family-run business that has built its reputation on going that extra mile for its customers is expanding the range of properties it offers its customers once again this winter.
The company was conceived 11 years ago when founders and still company directors Nick and Vicki Williams realised that property owners in the Alps often wanted to rent out their chalets and apartments when they weren’t using them but lacked reliable people in resort to manage the properties for them. At the same time people looking for accommodation were only being offered a substandard, impersonal service by existing providers.
The difference is clear
This different attitude to both property owners and visiting skiers proved to be a hit and Mountain Heaven’s services were immediately in strong demand. However Nick and Vicki were concerned that to ensure their personal touch could be maintained, the company grew organically rather than try to do too much too soon.
But grown it has and from its first season in Plagne Montalbert the company has expanded and now offers both apartment and catered chalet holidays in seven resorts – Courchevel, Plagne 1800, La Rosiere, La Tania, Morzine, Meribel and in Switzerland the picturesque unspoilt village of Grimentz, one of Nick’s personal favourites for its spectacular scenery and great powder skiing.
Meribel is a new Mountain Heaven resort for next season with the company offering Chalet la Cote. The five bedroom chalet is in a great location in the resort’s Musssillon area of Meribel, a short hop from the slopes and the resort centre. It has been fully refurbished and has a hot tub on the balcony.
There’s a lot of company focus on the well placed, snowsure resort of Plagne 1800 ahead of the coming season too. The new Chalet Perle complements the brand new property Mountain Heaven added last season, Chalet Boule de Neige. In addition Mountain Heaven’s five bedroom Chalet Soleil is having a full refurbishment ahead of the coming winter.
The seven-bedroom Chalet Perle is being completely renovated to create a stunning chalet with features including a magnificent lounge with open fireplace from which to savour the views over La Plagne.
You will also be able to soak away your aches and pains after a hard days skiing in a Scandinavian hot tub and Chalet Perle, which sleeps up to 14, will also have a sauna and sun terrace. The chalet is one of the closest in La Plagne 1800 to the piste and it’s usually ‘ski in’ with access to the slopes being less than a 40metre walk.
And Mountain Heaven’s growth shows no signs of abating with some exciting new developments on the horizon. We are sure to see a lot more of Mountain Heaven.
