Year Purchased: 2012
About: Part Brit, part Australian I love the mountains and can be found skiing and snowboarding in the winter and cycling up hills in the summer.
Why Portes du Soleil: There is no better place to relax we have the best views in the Alps.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: The views are incredible and I like to think we have thought of everything. There is nothing better than a glass of champagne in the hot tub after a day in the mountains.
