1st July – Summer is here, but our minds are on the winter…

6th May 2008

Welcome to our first official Fish and Pips blog.

Our new blog is designed as a means of letting you know the snow conditions, our special offers on ski holidays, and general Fish and Pips news throughout the season.

The snow seems a long way away for us now as we bask in 27 degree heat in London today, but already Fish and Pips are concentrating on next winter and new ways to improve your holidays.

New to our portfolio of chalets this year is Chalet du Guide. This is a traditional Savoie chalet, a short walk from our other chalets, and a 4 minute walk to the Golf chairlift in Meribel Village. Chalet du Guide sleeps 10-12, has a fantastic huge open fire and a hot tub to bubble away those aches and pains. Do have a look on the main site for more details.

The Fish and Pips team is expanding next season. We have three of our staff returning, Nick and Abi to continue running Chalet Le Christophe to a very high standard, and Jenny continues to conjure up delicious meals in Chalet Braye next season. We are now recruiting for further staff to add to our team. We are looking for a chef and host to take care of Chalet Aurigny, and a chef and host to head up Chalet du Guide. New to next year is a driver to complete the team. We will be offering on call chaffeur service between 8 30 and 11 30 in the mornings, and 16 30 to 19 30 in the afternoons. So… we are looking for a driver to complete our team for next year. If you know anyone interested who you think would suit being a member of our small team, then do ask them to email us at recruitment@fishandpips.co.uk

The Meribel Valley is green and warm say our sources there now, the mountain flowers are peeping through and the lifts open for summer business this weekend. If you fancy some mountain biking, whitewater fun or just some rambling then do check out our summer programmes that we are piloting this year (details on the website). If that all sounds a bit energetic, then why not have a weeks self catered, sitting in a deckchair in the afternoon sun? Do contact us summer@fishandpips.co.uk

Whilst all this is going on, Holly and I are settling into our new office and enjoying catching up with everyone in London. Do come and see us if any of you are passing through Clapham!
