Madame Vacances celebrates its 20th birthday

Despite high fixed rents and increasing utility costs, Madame Vacances is pleased to announce it’s in a strong position as it celebrates its 20th Birthday. Many others have fallen by the wayside over the last few years. CEO, Richard Green says, “The Company owes its success and survival to a dynamic multicultural marketing team, hard working operational staff and an acute eye on costs and reporting through all layers of our activities”
The company was founded by Roger Borne and Richard Green in the autumn of 1991. The early years were spent expanding in the top ski resorts. Some properties are fully owned by the company, others operating a lease back scheme with owners where the company provides the management and commercialization of the properties. Recently the company has been approached on behalf of other management companies who are struggling and needing help selling or managing their properties.
Today Madame Vacances represents:
– Turnover of 66 Million Euros
– 260,000 clients/year
– More than 500 staff
– 27,500 beds managed in France
– Distributor for approx 11,000 beds in European cities

The company is offering hundreds of free holidays for clients to celebrate its birthday. For example if you have a newborn baby this autumn between 15/09-31/10, the company will give you a free week’s holiday accommodation in 2012. Conditions apply. UK director, Callum Chiverton says, “It’s great to be able to have something to celebrate in today’s difficult climate and to offer a free holiday to new families”. Many other birthday promotions are also ongoing, including entry to win a car with every booking. The celebrations start on 15/09 and end 31/10. All prices for next summer are staying at this year’s rates until the end of the celebrations.
The company has extensive coverage in all the major ski resorts in France with 2-4* hotels from b&b to fully inclusive as well as over 100 piste-side chalets and many residences. In the summer, the company operates hundreds of self catering apartments and villas, many with private pools.If you have been skiing in France with a tour operator or have rented a villa in the south west, there’s a high chance you have stayed in one of their properties.
