Our ethos on chalet holidays

Chalet holidays should be fun, relaxing and memorable

At Alpine Ethos we run our ski chalet holidays in the way that we would want to be looked after ourselves. We aim to provide a fun, relaxed atmosphere in our chalets, a seamless, helpful service, useful local knowledge, great food, quaffable wine and memorable holidays.

We, Heather and Andy, have been together for over a decade and have run Alpine Ethos for over 7 years now. We gave up our sensible financial sector jobs in Leeds to come and live in the mountains year round. We are passionate about living in such a beautiful environment and make the most of living here in all seasons.

We are proud that so many of our guests have taken the time to give us insightful, generous reviews which tell the tale of our Meribel chalet holidays. The ability for our guests to review us makes us accountable and keeps us on our toes to offer the same excellent levels or service week after week, season after season.

The team


Heather is the organiser in Alpine Ethos keeping everything running smoothly with patience and good humour.

Found on a snowboard in the winter and a road bike in the summer her only known weaknesses are rum and ginger and pains aux raisins.


Andy will be your in resort driver, handy man and go to guy for local trivia, tips and trusted watering holes.

Often found covered in snow after a powdery bale he thankfully falls over less in the summer when mountain biking.

Lynn and Andy - Chalet St Joseph

Lynn and Andy had an extended stay in Apartment Petit Cabri last winter and applied for a job with us as soon as we started recruiting. With their love of food, wine and a variety of outdoor activities (skiing included!), we felt we had found kindred spirits to run St Joseph for us this year.

This summer has seen Lynn and Andy head to France to work on a campsite in Brittany. They plan on doing some travelling around France before heading out to Les Allues for an alpine adventure!

Chalet St Joseph, hosts

Sam - Chalet Les Cabris

Sam came to work for us in Chalet St Joseph last season and is coming back for another season, this time cheffing and hosting in Chalet Les Cabris.

He has a great love for food, rugby and most things outdoors. He has spent the summer walking the Pennine Way and working on a youth programme and this autumn is working on a marine conservation project in Mauritius.

Whilst not cooking and looking after our guests Sam is hoping to try his hand at snowboarding this winter.

A note on the website

While we designed the website in-house the design process was made infinitely easier by some excellent resources available online.
