Our Shareholders

Elevation Alps was started by Paul Watts and Sébastien Michaud at the beginning of the 2015/16 ski season.  In April 2016, Kathryn Leake joined the partnership team.

Paul is a Chartered Surveyor whose original background was in commercial retail property working at an opportunity fund in London.  He moved to Morzine where he sells and develops high-end properties with a bilingual management team including some of the best luxury property developers in the area.  His knowledge of the international property market combined with his local network has allowed him to build up the best luxury chalet rental portfolio in the area.

Sébastien is a French qualified Chartered Surveyor who is from a local family to the area.  Having lived in the area all his life he has an unsurpassable amount of local knowledge and contacts in the property world.  He studied in Paris for his Property degree before returning to Morzine to continue working at Morzine Immobilier. He is a qualified member of the Chambre des Experts Immobiliers FNAIM (the French equivalent of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors).  Within the Morzine area he has worked on some of the major residential developments.

Kathryn left a sales and marketing career in the UK grocery trade to move to Morzine in 2014.  She quickly made herself at home in the area and gained and understanding of the holiday rentals business by working locally in the area.  She and her husband live in Montriond.

Morzine Immobilier

We work closely with our sister Company Morzine Immobilier, the biggest sales and holiday lettings company in Morzine.  You can book some of their luxury holiday rental chalets through Elevation Alps and some of our properties are bookable through them.

If you book a Morzine Immobilier chalet, they will take the accommodation payment and will send you their letting agreement to sign.  The booking will be managed from beginning to end by them.  If you have any questions about Morzine Immobilier or your booking, you will find their sales team easy to contact in French or English.
