Our story


Consensio is a Luxury Chalet Operator (not an agent) and a UK registered company with an Operations office in France. We manage our portfolio directly on behalf of their respective owners and we are fully bonded with ABTA to provide financial protection and peace of mind to our guests. Our main goal is to provide Exceptional Service in Exceptional Properties across the French Alps.

Stuart Pinnell and Ceri Tinley co-founded Consensio, launching in 2009 in partnership with the owners of six chalets who were looking for an operator able to manage their chalets with them rather than for them. Consensio means “co-operative” and that is how we work, using our unique profit sharing method. Each of our owners is as individual as their chalet and we take the time to get to know them, understanding what is important to them. We understand that holiday time is precious, which is why we take time to listen to our guests to learn exactly what they want, so we can ensure that every aspect is taken care of.

This year Consensio is was again nominated for “World’s Best Ski Operator” at the World Ski Awards and we have had 5  of our chalets shortlisted for “Best Ski Chalet in France 2018”. Our Chalet Grande Corniche in Les Gets triumphed in 2017 winning the category for the second time, previously winning in 2015. Chalet Mont Tremblant in Meribel was awarded the winner in 2016 and Chalet Marco Polo in Val d’Isere brought home the title consecutively in 2013 and 2014.

 

Our Vision


Our vision is to create bespoke luxury ski holiday experiences, for discerning international clients. 

We achieve this by providing tailored Exceptional Service in the most Exceptional Properties in the French Alps. When we say tailor made, we really do mean exactly that; when staying in a Consensio property you make the rules! Guided by your personal preferences we create a ski holiday experience to meet the unique and individual needs of your party. We manage 12 fabulous fully catered luxury ski chalets and 6 stunning self-catered luxury apartments.

 

Our Approach


At the forefront of our approach is our care and an attentiveness to detail which filters through every aspect of what we do. We care about our clients, our owners, our staff and our partners. We want to make sure that everyone who comes into contact with Consensio enjoys their experience, whether they are on holiday with us, working with us or working for us. We find this approach means that clients, owners, partners and staff return to us year after year.
