Philippa Hartley

Philippa Hartley

Director, Surrey
After 7 years in the Alps Philippa (the 'Pips') is now based full time in the UK. When not being run ragged by her two small children Ned and Clemmie she can be found at her desk in Surrey, holding the purse strings! Having stepped back from the day to day running of the business in the Alps, Philippa now governs all things financial and leads on the business planning. This winter she hopes to spend more time in the Alps both for work and pleasure – including the annual F&P family holiday – what better way to check the standards of our holidays than have a Director and all her extended family descend on a resort!
Holly Fisher

Holly Fisher

Director, Les Allues & Alderney
Holly - the 'Fish' spends the winter in Meribel running the resorts and looking after guests with Monika and the rest of the team. Holly thrives on working alongside a great team, meeting the guests, being out in the mountains and enjoying the superb food produced by the F&P chefs year on year. Holly's summers are spent running her second business The Georgian House - a successful restaurant, pub and hotel on Alderney in the Channel Islands. Look out for Holly on the slopes around Meribel and Val d'Isere and expect to see her for a canapé or two during your stay with Fish & Pips, she does need to make sure they're to the right standard after all!
Monika Saller

Monika Saller

HR and Operations Manager
After completing a number of seasons in Les Trois Vallees and testing the water back in London, the industry and charm that the mountains hold has her hooked. Being new to F&P, she has worked closely with Holly and Philippa to bring her up to speed. She cannot wait to be looking after the teams in both Meribel and Val d’Isere and above all, meeting all the F&P guests in the forthcoming season. What more could a girl ask for; a fantastic, fun and friendly team that serves up some wonderful food, with stunning scenery and in great company.

Emma Duffield

Emma Duffield

Sales Manager
Emma joined the F&P team in season 14/15 and manages sales and marketing from the UK office. Prior to this she has worked in both the finance and travel industry, and has also run luxury chalets in the French and Swiss Alps for 3 winters (Val d'Isere and Verbier). A passion for skiing, good food, and two of her favourite resorts - Meribel and Val d’Isere - drew her to F&P. She is now based in London and very much enjoys a role that incorporates all of the things she loves - with the added bonus of as much time in the mountains as she can fit in, when not in the office!
Fleur Jeans

Fleur can't wait for the season to start and is looking forward to taking care of all your pre-holiday arrangements, ensuring that you have a fabulous, hassle free experience with Fish and Pips!
Lexi Alston

Lexi Alston

Chalet Host - Meribel
Many people ask me, "when are you returning down under?" A question I find hard to answer, since moving abroad last year, as much as I love the London life nothing compares to making first tracks in fresh powpow and memorable evenings spent entertaining guests! I'm a passionate foodie with the appetite for travel and meeting new people, which is why I simply had to return to the Alps. Sorry Australia, Fish & Pips are calling!
Monica Cardoso

Monica Cardoso

Chalet Chef - Meribel
This will be my first season in the winter world. I’ll be spending half of my day cooking and the other half trying to learn everything snow related! I’m a typical food and travel lover who loves to listen to people’s stories and ideas. I can’t wait to get up there!
Caitlin Giddins-Bryne

Caitlin Giddins-Bryne

Chalet Host - Val d'Isère
Having been lucky enough to ski once or twice a season from a young age I am a keen skier - doing a season has been on my radar for a while. I am currently halfway through my architectural education, after graduating last year and spending the last 14 months working in architectural practice, it is definitely time for a snowy break in the Alps! I love food and am always trying out new recipes and bakes on my family from my collection of cookery books - which I am addicted to buying. I am so excited to be spending my winter in the mountains - meeting lots of lovely new people and delaying real life for a little bit longer!
Jeremy Vickerman

Jeremy Vickerman

Chalet Chef - Meribel
Working alongside my fiancée Isabel we are looking forward to our first season in the snow. With a background in wine and as a classically trained chef I can’t wait to combine my love for the slopes with the privilege of wining and dining our guests. We are look forward to a big adventure before we tie the knot next summer and can’t wait to share that adventure with you!
Isabel Vazquez

Isabel Vazquez

Chalet Host - Meribel
Having worked over 10 years in hospitality, in Spain and in the UK, I see Meribel as my next big adventure. Working with my fiancé Jeremy I am very excited about taking my first trip to the alps. Who wouldn’t look forward to the fresh air, fresh snow and fresh food!! We’re thrilled to welcome you to join us on what will hopefully be an epic season!
Chelsey Noone

Chelsey Noone

Chalet Host - Meribel
After studying Law at Edinburgh University for the past four years I’ve not quite had enough of the cold, and I couldn’t think of a better way to put off being a ‘proper’ adult in an office than by running to the mountains with F&P for a ski season. I’ve worked for Holly at The Georgian House in Alderney for about 4 years now – time to relocate! This will be my first season in the Alps and I can’t wait to meet everyone and hit the slopes!
Catherine McFadyen

Catherine McFadyen

Chalet Chef / Host - Meribel
Australian born and bred I have grown up with a love for adventure and the great outdoors. After traveling Europe and settling in London my love of cooking has turned into a calling from the mountains. So I have followed my passion for food up into my first ski season. It’s always been a dream of mine to work a winter season and I can’t wait to start! With an amazing team, great food, fresh powder and a little bit of winter magic it’s going to be a season to remember.
Lucie Easton

Lucie Easton

Self-Catered Manager
This is Lucie's third season in Meribel but her first with Fish and Pips. Her first season was spent working as a chalet chef/host and the second as a resort rep so she knows the region well and will be able to help you with anything you need. She spent the summer season in Alderney working for Holly and messing about in boats! Unable to resist the call of the mountains and driven by her passion for skiing, good food and fun she is delighted to be back in Meribel and looking forward to managing the Meribel Village self-catered apartments for Fish and Pips.
Haydn Bennett

Haydn Bennett

Chalet Host - Meribel
After being so jealous of the fun my brother was having when I would visit him on his seasons I thought I'd finally give it a go myself. What better way than to come back to the same company he used to work for! I've always worked in hospitality and always done extreme sports so what better way to combine the two! I'm passionate about all things food and drink related, so I can't wait to get stuck in entertaining guests and creating some awesome memories with some amazing people!
Sophie Robbins

Sophie Robbins

Resort Manager - Val d'Isere
Having spent a year in Colorado waking up to a view of the Rockies each morning, seasons in La Rosiere and Morzine, and many months living in rural Nepal, the call of the mountains proved too strong so Sophie decided to swap her UK role as a team coach with a major finance house for life back in the mountains she loves.

Sophie has a varied background, having studied art in Cornwall she is a keen printmaker, and her human geography degree is what really sparked her passion for travel. She is excited to have joined Fish and Pips and is looking forward to working with a fantastic new team in Val d 'Isere to see that everyone has an amazing holiday this winter.

Driver
I am a mountain enthusiast who loves the life of being able to work on the doorstep of such an amazing resort. Rain, snow or sunshine it is all that is needed to get up and going every day to provide the guests with a great service and get them just as excited for the hill as our staff.
And remember everybody, keep those edges sharp!!
