Charlie is the founder of Alpoholics which has just finished its 7th winter season. Charlie has an upper second class (work hard play hard) Honours degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management and is a former British Universities Freestyle Snowboard Champion. He is also the founder of La Plagne’s premier mountain top apres-ski event so be sure to catch him in action at La Bergerie during your stay!
Jess is our energiser bunny manager and, having completed her 1st winter with Alpoholics, now has 3 seasons in La Plagne under her belt working in chalets of different shapes & sizes. Jess is super smiley and personable and nothing is ever too much trouble. She has excellent local knowledge of the resort and ski area and loves to pop into the chalets for a cup of tea or a glass of wine with her guests.
Nick returns in winter 2017/18 for his 2nd season at the Helm of our Flagship Chalet in Plagne 1800. Nick is a vastly experienced chef having plied his trade in hotels and restaurants at 2 AA rosette level for 5 years and has a real passion for good quality food and using local produce whenever possible. Nick will arrive fresh from a 2nd summer cheffing in a 3AA Rosette restaurant on the private Scilly Isle of Tresco which is owned by Prince Charles and frequented by the rich & famous.
Luke takes control of our brand new Chalet Bassey next winter. Like Nick, Luke has spent a summer working on the private Island of Tresco cheffing in a fine dining restaurant. For over 8 years he has had a great passion for cooking and last year, Luke and his team collectively won the Derbyshire life magazine dining pub of the year, also getting their famous Steak and Ale pudding into the Derbyshire’s cook book (get stuck in series). During his 1st winter with Alpoholics, Luke received unanimous praise every week for his outstanding food and he & Holly make a quite superb team. He is also rather handy on a snowboard for a guy with just one winter behind him!
Holly was your fun & smiley host at Chalet Blanchot last winter and will be moving up to Chalet Bassey with Luke for winter 17/18, bringing with her years of front of house bar, restaurant & chalet experience, including managing front of house teams. Holly’s references from her previous employers were among the most impressive we’ve ever received at Alpoholics and she certainly didn't disappoint! Holly and Luke were adored by each and every guest that was lucky enough to stay in their chalet last year. Get your bookings in quick!
Jenny rejoins our dream team for winter 2017/18 having run Chalet Yogi single handedly to critical acclaim last winter. Jenny's food is scumptious and she specialises in cakes and deserts. Her chocolate orange cake in particular is to die for. She is an accomplished skier and also knows her way around a snowboard. Jenny somehow manages to acheive ultra chalet efficency whist still having plenty of time to devote to getting to know her guests. Jenny has a degree in Zoology and has worked at Birdworld and Africa alive giving feeding talks and coordinating animal displays.
Fran had the challenging task of running Chalet Orshanti last year and smashed it so hard she'll be joining the management team next winter.This will be her 3rd winter season in the Alps, having previously worked in les Arcs. Only 27, Francesca already has a decade of experience within the hospitality & catering industry, from cheffing to restaurant manager. Her fun and upbeat attitude and her meticulous attention to detail means she's ready to ensure our guests experience with Alpoholics is the best!
“Amazing week, wonderful staff, excellent food- the perfect week” What a fantastic experience we had staying in Orshanti, which is tremendous value and a lovely home away from home. The food was top restaurant quality- Nick is a phenomenal chef. Fran & Jason were attentive to our every need, kind, fun and excellent hosts.A phenomenal chalet experience! Amazing hot tub and cinema room perfect for chilling after a great day of skiing. Thank you team Alpoholics.
“Great chalet, superb staff” This was our 4th stay in Chalet Blanchot, which says a lot! Excellent food, location and a ton of slopes for a wide range of abilities and ages. Chalet is well-equipped with a hot-tub, Play Station and a selection of TV/movies (Flight of the Conchords recommended). Staff are friendly, helpful and have put up with untidy teens and an over-friendly dog over the years. My brother-in-law is especially fond of La Mine pub up the road.
Have booked another Alpoholics chalet (as we are a bigger group) for this year's ski holiday as they really are hard to beat.
“Best sking holiday ever” From the moment Charlie collected us to the time Jess dropped us off everything was just perfect
The snow was great but so was the accommodation at Chalet Blanchot - a lovely little Chalet in a great position.
Holly's welcome smile continued for the whole week and made us feel perfectly relaxed and Luke's food was unbelievably brilliant every night
We are already booked for next year
“Epic location and legendary service” Yogi really is a ski in/ski out chalet. The hot tub is amazing and basically located on the piste, allowing you to raise your glass to passers by with a suitable smug grin on your face. Scotty's is also only a short walk away for some apres and live music. Great location - full stop. I'll definitely be back!
