Chamonix Chalets is wholly owned by the AD & Co. Limited a UK registered company (UK company registration number 6218322 and UK VAT no. GB194905669).
The business was founded in 2001 when Adam Honey moved from a private banking career to live and work in Chamonix. A keen skier, mountaineer and adventurer, Adam was as interested in exploring the mountains as he was in bringing people to Chamonix to share in his passion and real-life commitment to service and professionalism. You will see dotted around the website and in our communications the motto “We love the mountains and were taught to share…” and this ethos remains at the heart of what Chamonix Chalets does.
Adam is still running the business and has seen hundreds of chalets in Chamonix and in other resorts and has longstanding relationships with many of the owners and chalet operators in and around Chamonix that often go back nearly 20 years. His wealth of experience and local understanding and energy fuels what we do here and that is to provide excellent holidays, events, activities and memories.
Some clients will have been with us many times over and will recall that the business was originally operated on the website “Chamonix Ski Chalets”. The simple website that was encouraged holidaymakers to contact us so that we could personally advise the best available chalets for them. We still think this is the best way to find a chalet and book a holiday, but the world has moved on and the large portals that provide holiday services allow customers to book and pay for holidays without the benefit if human interactions. We do both with Chamonix Chalets. So, if you want to book self-catered or catered chalet based upon what your see on our listings that’s great, but you can also call our team for a chat and for finding out the finer detail before parting with your money!
That also means that when you do book a holiday with us, you will know that we have carefully vetted the owners and operators. The chances of being scammed by a fake advertiser are ridiculously low, in fact, it has never happened. No client of ours has ever lost their money due to an insolvency or holiday scam. You really can’t say the same if you book through the global travel portals who do not seem to care at all what happens to customers.
