My partner Duncan and I attended one of your exhibitions last year. Although we haven't yet started the business, we are about to do so this year. We met one of the exhibitors, French Property Angels, which spurred us on to following our dream of setting up a chalet business in the Alps. We spent some time during the summer in France, researching different places for summer opportunities as well as skiing. We have actually found our dream chalet, but due to the credit crunch, we haven't managed to sell Duncan's flat in London yet to buy it.

However, the owners have agreed to rent it to us on a two-year lease, which (once we've signed the contract) will start this October. We're leaving our jobs, getting married this August, then going on a gourmet chalet cooking course, and then moving to France! Still masses to do (build the website and market it properly) but we feel that we want to just get out there and make a start, rather than wait another year.
