Right from the start of Esprit Montagne, Chef Raf Meuris responsible for the delicious, freshly prepared dishes that we serve up for our guests every day. His creativity, purity and tasty dishes keep many guests coming back time after time for a gastronomic stay. Outside in the natural surroundings, he often heads out in search of mushrooms, flowers and herbs. See him dancing around the kitchen as he prepares dinner? That means he listening to the mix of his own DJ set.

General manager

In 2015, Marieke Freriksen decided to leave life as a civil servant and Dordrecht behind to live and work in the French mountains. Since then, she has grown in her field to become a true hostess and is trained by Alke each day in the hospitality field. She enjoys welcoming guests in the reception area, offers fun tips and is always ready to help the guests. In her free time, she can be found hiking, on skis or wearing snowshoes in the mountains.
Stéphanie

Stéphanie

Housekeeping

Stéphanie joined the housekeeping team in the summer of 2016. Careful cleaning, making herself useful, contact with the guests and their gratitude for the good cleaning are very important to her. She likes to arrange everything down to the smallest detail. She also enjoys the nice atmosphere with the rest of the team. At home, she enjoys spending time in the kitchen baking cake and goes on hikes with her family. Outside the season, she helps us with random household tasks, and of course getting the hotel ready again for a new season.

Stéphanie’s sister is also a very hard worker and a pleasant employee. Perfect cleaning, hard work and having fun at the same time: that’s our Ingrid through and through. Always up for a joke and with an ever-present smile on her face, she’s the life of the team. Along with keeping the rooms clean and tidy, she is a real sweet tooth and can regularly be found in the kitchen making the most delicious cakes. She also enjoys biking through the valley to enjoy the natural scenery.

Irene

Waitress

Hello Everyone, I am Irene and joining the Esprit Montagne team this winter! Together with the team I look forward contributing to a pleasant stay for the guests in the little, cosy mountain hotel.  Having fun with the team is for me an important aspect in my work.

I worked in the hospitality and pharmaceutical field. I speak Dutch, French and English fluently. During the summer I enjoy travelling to the mountains and go into the nature for adventurous hikes. In the winter I like to ski. This year in Austria I joined a ski touring course. During my free time in the Alps I look forward to go ski touring and to walk in the winter landscapes of the Abondance valley.

See you soon! A bientôt! Tot ziens!
