This is an exciting opportunity to own a new-build ski apartment in Chamonix, one of the most iconic ski resorts in the French Alps. Situated in the heart of the town, this boutique collection of six apartments is just a few minutes from the Savoy ski lift, which takes skiers up to the beginner’s slopes. From here, skiers can walk one minute to the Brevent button lift which will take them up to the pistes. Alternatively, there is a bus service which offers direct transfers to the Brevent ski lift.
Located on the second floor of the property, this apartment for sale spans 92 sqm and features three large bedrooms with built-in storage. There is also an equipped kitchen, a laundry room and an open-plan living and dining area of 36 sqm. However, what makes this property so exciting has a number of balconies including three which offer panoramic views over the Mont Blanc mountain range.
A ski locker is included and there is the option to add a cellar and a garage for an additional fee.
As a new-build property, future owners will benefit from reduced notary fees and will also have the opportunity to apply for a VAT rebate if they decide to rent out their apartment when they are not using it.
Chamonix is a true year-round town which means that it is possible to generate rental income in the summer months as well as during the ski season. From golf to hiking, there is plenty to do in the warmer months and, according to the tourism office, the number of overnight stays in the summer has risen by 100,000 between 2018 and 2019.
Welcoming skiers since 1906, Chamonix is one of the oldest ski resorts in the French Alps as well as the host of the first winter Olympics. Often the go-to destination for advanced skiers, this resort boasts 119 slopes. Whilst skiing is certainly the main draw, Chamonix has plenty to offer away from the slopes too such as ice skating, golf and hiking with 350km of marked trails to explore.
Careful to retain its rustic charm, Chamonix has grown organically over the years and is a Flocon Vert resort thanks to its commitment to sustainability.
The village is home to a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants, including Albert 1er which has been awarded 2 Michelin Stars.
