IDM Promotion is a small, family building company, constructing chalets and apartments in Saint Sorlin d’Arves, the pretty and unspoilt village in the Les Sybelles ski region, the fourth largest in France. Jean-Pierre Binois is the head of the business and, having a family home in Saint Sorlin d’Arves, he began his first project in the village 10 years ago and since then has built two high-quality apartment developments and several chalets.
Jean-Pierre is highly regarded in the village and has excellent connections there, using only local artisans to undertake the building work – a great benefit if the buyers of the properties need any work done in the future. The current chalets - ‘Les Chalets d’en Haut les Pres’ - now under construction are the second phase in this superb location just 200 metres from the ski lifts and the village centre. Jean-Pierre’s son Bastien is now a partner in the business, making it a true family enterprise.
Marian Lightfoot has worked with IDM Promotion since 2007 and is the UK representative for their properties. Having had a love of the mountains and winter sports for most of her life , as well as having an enthusiastic interest in the property market, this industry was a natural progression in her career from the ski travel industry and hotels sales and marketing.
