La Tillette is home to Sarah and Lloyd Rogers who are no strangers to hosting catered ski and snowboard chalet accommodation.
Lloyd and Sarah opened their previous operation in Sainte Foy back in 1993. Lloyd now also works as an architect locally. He designed and built La Tillette himself, with Sarah's help, to provide luxurious, modern living, within a typically Savoyard Farmhouse style property.
They were originally attracted to the Alps by a desire to try something new. They met whilst spending a season in Val d’Isere, and Lloyd passed on his early passion for snowboarding to Sarah. Lloyd became a professional racer, competing internationally and winning numerous British Titles in his career, with Sarah joining him on the tour for a season and winning her own British Title back in 1992. They are both now retired from the professional side of snowboarding and are more often to be found skiing or snowboarding the backcountry at Sainte Foy, their local and favourite resort !

Outside of the Winter, Lloyd and Sarah are keen road cyclists, with Lloyd also enjoying downhill mountain biking.
They share a passion for tennis and Lloyd has now put the final touches to his "Field of Dreams" - the full size grass tennis court in the grounds of La Tillette, which apart from enjoying a spectacular setting could be the highest grass tennis court in the World!
