About Frances Hess

As a family (3 children/3 grandchildren), we love skiing. We escape to The 3 Valleys as often as possible and have made a real home in the mountains. I am English but my husband is Swiss so he introduced me to skiing and immediately I was smitten. We wanted to be able to escape the pressures of work in England as often as possible; just get in the car and go whenever possible. Originally we bought a duplex in Meribel Les Allues - we loved this but my favourite was always Le Praz and when we needed more space we were so lucky to ask just at the right time. There was nothing available but we left our name etc. with the agent. We received the phone call and had to make a decision from England and off plan within hours or someone else would buy it! What a wonderful decision that was.

Frances Hess purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Frances Hess chose Courchevel

We wanted to stay in our holiday home at any time of the year; many ski resorts close between seasons and you can't even buy a loaf of bread. Le Praz is a real village, open all year with every amenity. No car needed unless you want to explore. Free bus service during ski season; 2 ski lifts 150 yds from the chalet. Olympic ski jump by lift. Vast ski area, linking Meribel, Val Thorens, La Tania, Les Menuires, St Martin and all Couchevel resorts. The chalet is totally equipped (linen/towels supplied) - just bring your boots and skis (or rent round the corner). We love it when there are just the 2 of us and we love it when we fill it with 8 people, family and friends. Summer is also wonderful there with so many activities available from golf, tennis, swimming, biking etc. We love it!

What makes this chalet unique

Many ski chalets offer wonderful accommodation and you can often ski in and out. But can you get to other amenities easily. Chalets 'on the piste' are great but ours is 150 yards from the piste and 150 yards from all amenities. We can shop on the way home from skiing or pop out after a cup of tea. We can walk to all 6 restaurants and enjoy wonderful apres ski in the Hotel Bar. No car needed, No bus ride needed. Le Praz is a real community, not just a tourist resort. As our grandchildren grow up they will be able to walk into the village to play with others. Much later (!) they will be able to walk to the 2 bars in the village and meet up with all the young and then walk home again. We love it!
