About Us


After a long time searching for the right place, proprietor couple Ashley and Darren came across Les Masses and were instantly captured by it’s charm and outstanding location. The couple lived in Verbier for 4 years prior to moving to Les Masses and met whilst working as chefs for separate companies.

Ashley worked as Head Chef for luxury chalet company Ski Verbier before taking over as Head Chef at Le Farinet Hotel and Lounge Bar. Prior to moving to Verbier she worked as a chef in a number of different roles from culinary schools to private households and super yachts.

Darren worked as Head Chef at Sir Richard Branson’s mountain retreat, The Lodge. Prior to that he also worked at Kasbah Tammadot in Morocco, another of the Virgin Limited Edition properties. Darren has worked in kitchens since he was 16 years old and has a vast amount of culinary knowledge and experience, working in some of the UK’s top restaurants. Darren's dream has always been to have his own restaurant.
