About Us

Families in Val Thorens

We give professional first hand advice, saving our client’s time when looking for their perfect holiday.
We take all the strain away, we offer a personalised service not found when booking online – in one phone call you can ask us to provide you with four different options for a ski holiday; a luxury catered version in ski in/ski out with a large tour operator; a small independent operator with independent nannies; a hotel with children’s club and a self catered option.
We will then provide you with a personal quote and be able to advise which option is best for your group.

How do we do this?

We have experienced each property ourselves and take care of all the holiday booking on your behalf – if you are including children in this holiday – even better.  We understand ski school worries; buggies on snow considerations (sledge’s are the way forward, leave the buggy at home if possible!)

As parents of three young children we know the pitfalls of travelling and skiing with them and how you can get trapped in holidaying with the same company just… because.

In terms of childcare – having worked and run our own private nursery and worked with highly trained child care professionals (and having the highest early years qualification personally) – we understand the worries a parent of a first born child may have about leaving them with someone they don’t know – we can pave the way for a smooth transition and a brilliant family holiday.

Why Jamaica?

Many people have asked us – why Jamaica?  Jamaica has come about because we have great family friends over there and we have visited the sunny island for years now; both pre children as a group of adults and post – with two under four – and then with all three.  It’s a beautiful place; it has a consistent warm temperature, even in winter and the Jamaican’s are so welcoming and friendly.  We also discovered the quality of the private villa’s over there are of the same calibre as other, more well visited, Caribbean islands and offer far better value for money.  We firmly believe that Jamaica is an option for everyone in the UK and know where we’ll be next summer – not chancing it in rainy Cornwall and hoping for a day by the beach – everyday is a sun day in Jamaica.

Why Butler & Lloyd?

Butler and Lloyd take the stress out of booking your holiday, we provide our clients with a hands on fully tailor made service. How are we able to do this? We visit ever single one of the properties that we sell, whether it be hotels, chalets, or villas. We have seen them all. In most cases we have experienced the cooking, tried the beds and met the staff. This enables us to give you the best advice in the market place.
