The Retreat - A Brief History
The Retreat was created by Beth and Graham Smith. It started as a derelict Savoyard farm that was last renovated in 1888. Beth has always loved to ski, qualifying as a ski instructor a number of years ago, and Graham has a passion for building and making things happen - a good combination for a chalet in the Alps! After 5 years of hard work, The Retreat came to life. Since then, we have holidayed there every year, both in winter and in summer. Why? For us, there is nowhere like it. It gives our holiday the perfect mix of rural and town life and was designed to encompass all the things that make our stays feel luxurious and special. We have 3 young kids and normally love to stay with two or three other families of similar sizes.
A huge amount of love and passion went in to creating The Retreat. We hope you can feel some of that when you stay there.
