We know that you work hard all year to fund your winter getaway and so we really wanted to take the time to introduce ourselves for anyone
that doesn’t already know us.
We are all about creating a company that focuses on you as an individual, we aim to put the personal touch on your holiday, and know that when you are coming to stay with The Works, we know the difference between a good holiday and an AMAZING holiday! Great food with Great staff who love what they do and in an atmosphere that is chilled, relaxed and with all of the facilities to enjoy a little bit of luxury too.
You see we have been there, it’s exactly what drew us to wanting to create our own life in the mountains, we have been staying in catered chalets for the last 15 years and we know what we expect when on our holidays as we have travelled across the world before the kids arrived and as a family, and it’s the little things that matter.
In fact we initially were attracted to Morzine for the winter, but as it turns out the summers are just as amazing.
It was when we came to visit Morzine for a summer holiday in 2015 we made the decision that we wanted to make this place home, and just a year later here we are making this happen.
We have always been ambitious, we work hard and when we decide we want something, we take massive action and have made our dream a reality. We fully believe in living the life of your dreams and part of that is going to the places you love, doing the things that you love doing, the things that make you feel alive, with the people that you love.
For many people that is what going on holiday is all about and it’s of prime importance that we create this feeling for you when you come away and stay with us.
For us to get to this place, we sold our fitness businesses, our ‘Forever Home’ back in our home town of Blackpool and Gavin gave up his job of 10 years working in Oil/Gas as an Electrician, and sh*t got real.
We are beyond excited about making The Works a thriving Chalet company here in Morzine.
I am continuing with my online fitness coaching and lifestyle coaching and I am already working hard creating my fitness and wellness retreats here at Chalet Symphony. You can follow our dedicated retreats page HERE.
We are meticulously preparing for our first guests arrival in just 10 weeks time as we open our doors on the 16th December for the winter season!
We have added two amazing members of staff to the team who will be joining us very soon! They are currently in Canada finishing A travellers World Tour!
Rachel and Charlotte cannot wait to get started and have forwarded a message for you: –
We are going to be responsible for looking after you and ensuring your stay in Morzine is all that you hope it to be and more! So, let us tell you a little about ourselves. We are two best friends from the North West England, meeting at school at the age of four, we have been inseparable since, even both attending University together in Newcastle reading Economics and Criminology.
After graduating in 2015, we followed our passion for travel and after packing our backpacks set off on an adventure that I’m not sure that either of us could have envisioned in our wildest dreams. 16 months later we are still travelling and have visited Central America, Canada and travelled extensively through South America. From wild camping in Patagonia to sambaring the night away at Rio Carnival, diving in Belize and trekking to the dizzy heights of 5550m!
The best experiences by far though have been the people we have met along the way from all different cultures and walks of life. The winter for us though is all about skiing and having skied in Canada, America and most of Europe, our favorite resort by far is Morzine, that’s why we are extremely excited to be part of The Works team this winter and will endeavor to do our utmost so that when you will leave you will be just as much in love with it as we are.
We both have over 5 years experience in hospitality, working in a range of bars and restaurants as well as catering for companies, business events, weddings and VIP tents. Our love for entertaining proved a popular skill when travelling and we often found ourselves catering for the whole hostel of travellers who just craved some good home cooked grub! On the other end of the Spectrum, we regularly hosted dinner parties for the residents of the Hamptons in New York. We are excited to welcome you to Morzine whether it be your first visit or you are returning, whichever, you will be pleased you chose The Works Chalet.
With love, Rachel and Charlotte
