When advertising a ski chalet for rent, it’s pretty common practice to show a bunch of photos of the property to give holiday-goers a rough idea of what they’re slapping down their hard-earned cash on. In fact, you probably wouldn’t book a ski holiday without seeing what the chalet looks like first. Photos only go so far however, and still leave a bit of scope for some nasty surprises. Before you know it, you’re hiking up three flights of stairs in the dark at 4am to get to the only loo!
You wouldn’t buy a house without going to see it first but, let’s be honest, you’re not going to go on a pre-holiday holiday just to check out the ski chalet that you might book for your holiday (I’ll stop saying “holiday” now). I’ve therefore been developing a new way of advertising ski chalets and other rental properties. Using high-end video technology originating in Hollywood film production, these walk-through video tours are designed to give the potential punter the impression of physically walking around the ski chalet. Watching one of these ski chalet video tours is the next best thing to physically going to check out the chalet before booking, just without the financial cost and carbon footprint! This gives a really good impression of the chalet and lets the customer know exactly what to expect. When they do arrive for their ski holiday, they’ll feel right at home, will have no nasty surprises and the owners won’t be getting bad feedback based on a misunderstanding of what the chalet is like.
I’m going to be spending the winter in the French Alps, based in Les Gets in the Portes Du Soleil, filming these ski chalet video tours for private owners, ski chalet managers and large ski holiday companies. I’ll be covering the whole of the Portes Du Soleil region including Abondance, Avoriaz, Champéry, Châtel, La Chapelle d’Abondance, Les Gets, Montriond, Morgins, Morzine, St Jean D’Aulps, Torgon and Val-d’Illiez Les Crosets Champoussin (did I just list all of those out for Google’s benefit? Yes I did). I can also travel further afield on request.
If you’d like to arrange to have a video made of a ski chalet that you own or operate, drop me an email on email@example.com or send me a message using the contact form at the bottom of this page. And, as always, if you have any suggestions as to how the format of these ski chalet video tours could be made even better, it’s always great to hear your ideas.
