About Us

We are Tom and Alex and we have always loved the mountains! We’ve had some of our best family and friend times with the mountains as our backdrop. Chalet Fourmiliere is our opportunity to share our love of the mountains with our love of providing fabulous food and a great welcome.

My hospitality journey started as a child – we always had people in our house – meal times were gatherings of interesting people, friends or business associates, invited back for dinner. Food became synonymous with great conversation and I loved being part of it all. College funds were augmented by helping my friend – a graduate of Leiths School of Food and Wine – run executive directors dining rooms for FTSE 500 companies in London. Post college I worked in business consultancy for some of the world’s greatest luxury brands. Along the way I became a mum to two amazing children, Charlie and Izzi – now young adults we are immensely proud of. My career then morphed into being a coach, advisor and mentor for a client base of individuals, charities and small business owners, helping them all achieve their best. 

When I met my husband, Tom – over 30 years ago now – we already had a lot in common – his family were the same as mine for start! Always a house full, always room for one more at the table. Tom’s early career in retail and then as a global management consultant has allowed us both to stay in some of the best hotels in the world. Tom’s business success is built on his engagement with people, creating strong relationships and delivering value to all those he engages with. His strategic perspective and formidable tenacity has ensured that every attention to detail has been considered enabling us to provide an amazing guest experience. We have been skiing together for 30 years and Tom has skied Morzine every year for the last 20. He knows the mountains, the restaurants and the town incredibly well. Our knowledge means we can send you to the best places, no guesswork required! 

A stay at Chalet Fourmiliere is as relaxing as we can make it for you. Cosseted in luxurious surroundings, every detail thought out – so you don’t have to… From sublime food to great wines, to really comfy beds… you may even forget to go skiing! Although that would be a shame when you have one of the best ski areas in the world on your doorstep. 

Come and stay at Chalet Fourmiliere and enjoy the best country house party in the Alps, oh… and the skiing is pretty good too.

See you soon! 

Tom and Alex
