In 2004 Mark and Frances set off for the Alps with a young baby, and one on the way, to find their dream ski chalet. Their drive was fuelled by their sheer passion for skiing and love for adventure and a new life with their young family. Having considered all the options they settled on the World renown ski resort of Chamonix. It made perfect sense with all year round opportunities for holidays and so many activities on offer in both summer and winter.
After a long search they found the perfect place perched on the crest of the hill in the beautiful area of Les Houches. Not just a chalet but one located alongside the ski piste for ski in ski out convenience. Chalet Prarion (now Chalet No 5) was born.
