The Alps, Solid investment As well as an enhanced lifestyle


More and more people are turning to the luxury markets, and in particular to the property market rather than leaving their money in conventional savings models. Leggett find that the vast majority of their buyers, particularly in the Alps, are looking not only for a good financial investment but also wanting to invest in an enhanced lifestyle for themselves and their families, and a ski chalet, or lakeside villa can very often answer those requirements very nicely.

The Rhone-Alpes and Haute-Alpes regions, are where all the main ski resorts, such as Courchevel, Val d’Isere, Morzine, la Clusaz, Chamonix and Deux Alpes are located, close to some of the most spectacular and largest lakes in Europe.

The ski resorts and lakes present a sparkling, pristine escape from the realities of the world. “The beauty of snow capped mountains, clear air and purest water, brings joy and peace to the most stressed-out city worker” says Heather Byrne, Leggett Regional Area Manager in the Alps.

The beautiful 6 bedroom chalet above, in the centre of the sought after village of Meribel is currently for sale at 3 935 000 Euros and a visit is definitely recommended, along with the spectacular 7 bedroom chalet featured below, near St Martin de Belleville and the 3 Valleys ski lifts, for sale at 2 800 000 Euros, which has the added benefit of a 3* Michelin restaurant close by.

“You are getting the best of everything when you can ski to a rosé wine lunch on a sunny terrace, then saunter on down to sail on the lake in the afternoon and this region certainly offers that kind of opportunity alongside crazy off-piste, safe family resorts, fascinating cities and a great infra-structure” says Heather. This fabulous 4 bedroom townhouse below, on the shores of Lac Leman, with spectacular, panoramic views across the lake to Vevey and Montreaux, is for sale at 625 000 Euros.

Regardless of what happens in the world, the ski market in the French Alps remains more buoyant than ever and there is a huge international following of loyal clients returning to ski each year.

Leggett understands that its clients are discerning and busy, so providing a comprehensive service to their clients is of prime importance; They’ll also tell you their favourite ski runs and lunch stops and who knows, you could even ski or float into your property visits with one of their bi-lingual agents who live and work where you want to invest - you can rely on their expertise.
