About Martin Chapman
We are Jackie and Martin and our son and daughter. We live in the Cotswolds and enjoy village life. Jackie is a University Professor and Martin runs his own business. We decided to buy Chalet Alys to create a contemporary space inside a traditional chalet. We love visiting Abondance and spend about 10 weeks a year there summer and winter. We hope to share our lovely home in the mountains with like minded people.
Martin Chapman purchased this Chalet in 2011
Why Martin Chapman chose Abondance
Martin and I found Abondance and Chalet Alys in the summer of 2011 when we spent a week touring around the Haute Savoie looking for a place to call home. We have skiied in Chatel and the Portes du Soliel several times and knew we could rely on it to provide for our skiing and holiday needs and those of our friends and family. Finding Abondance was the best part of that trip. In Chalet Alys we found our project and in Abondance we found a traditional, charming, warm French village. Our neighbours, the shop owners and the artisans we have worked with are warm, generous and encouraging people. We love that you can ski for a morning, walk along the River Dranse summer and winter, pop out to the Place du Village for a coffee or beer and always the sun seems to shine. As time has passed and we have explored the area more we find new treasures close to Abondance such as Saint Jean d'Aulps, Aigle and the surrounding village ski stations in Switzerland, Lake Leman, Lac Des Plagne and Refuge des Tinderet.
What makes this Chalet unique
In the Chalet you will enjoy a spacious home with two large communal rooms for gathering over breakfast and in the evenings to share the days events. The large log fire keeps you cosy and the underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathrooms is a real treat. All bedrooms are en suite and have great views of the surrounding mountains. There are also areas to find the peace and quiet you sometimes need on a busy group holiday such as the snug landing, the many balconies and of course your own confortable rooms. The garden is safe, spacious and secure to enjoy outdoor dining, ball games and in winter building snowmen.
Private hosts do not rent properties as a trade, business or profession.
