The chalet we built in Les Laix is one of the more unusual FMP stories. We had been corresponding with a client who said she would be arriving from overseas to spend a week getting to know our area and hoped to buy a property before she departed.

Buying a place in the Alps from a standing start without knowing your chosen area is a pretty tall order, but we quickly learned that the client had quite extraordinary tenacity and stamina - she managed to view eighty properties in that week!

Just before her arrival in the Alps we had been approached by the owner of the property in Les Laix, it was a renovation that had stalled and only the roof was sound. One of the first properties the client viewed, she returned to it at the end of her exhausting week and made the purchase.

The client chose many of the interior elements of the development, some really great individual touches, most of which we sourced locally - the tiles and parquet floors, for example, coming from a place near Chambéry.

We were delighted with the final outcome, it is a beautiful chalet and the client absolutely loves it.
