… to Happy Holidaymakers!
Our goal is “Many Happy Holidaymakers” and we work very hard to ensure that anyone who stays in your property has a Happy Holiday. We are open year round, an have an office is situated right in the centre of La Tzoumaz. We pride ourselves on our high standard of warm welcome and go out of our way to ensure that the holiday starts smoothly for every arrival. We will contact the clients in advance and ensure they have clear directions to find us easily and allow them to make us aware of any special needs. We manage the breakage deposit and tourist taxes for them. We provide piste maps, hiking guides and a wealth of other tourist information and personalised advice. We will often take people directly to their chalet and help them to settle in. This is particularly important if they arrive in a snow storm and the road is hard to find! We offer discounted skipasses/lessons/rental for all of our winter clients and hand over the skipasses with the keys so they are ready to hit the slopes as smoothly as possible. We can provide firewood, baby cots and high chairs amongst other things on request. Every client is given contact details and encouraged to let us know if there is anything we can do during their stay, whether there is a power cut at 2am or if they need a new lightbulb for the bedroom. The beds are made up with quality, fresh, white linen for each arrival and we provide towels and bathmats along with some basics such as teatowels, and toilet paper . With such a high focus on customer care, it is no surprise that up to 25% of our clients get in contact to rebook their next holiday with us!
