More about the owners:
Rolfe and Hermione (Marni) run another company called 360 Expeditions, www.360-expeditions.com and thus why they need help in running Papilio. Rolfe is often away on expeditions. Marni sometimes also has to go back the UK and on these occasions she will be leaving the house and animals in your care. (This is normally no longer than a few days and is planned and talked about a long way in advanced). They have had chalet Managers for the past 4 years for both the winter and summer seasons. The kids look upon these members of staff as older sisters.
More about Bagneres-De-Luchon:
Bageners de Luchon is amazing. If you enjoy walking, rock climbing, mountain biking, paragliding, canyoning, rafting of just relaxing by idyllic rivers it is a place for you. The night life is generally quiet and mainly consists of a few lively bars and a good choice of restaurants. Luchon has a great lido pool in the summer and temperatures are average of 34 degrees.
Being a small town you make friends quickly and feel part of a lager family unit. There are a few other chalets around so I would be able to introduce her to the staff there so as to help with her social life. However we also hope that they will become part of the family and muck in with us.
