New properties are now available in the popular French resort of Tignes21st April 2017
Often compared to its neighbour Val d'Isère, Tignes is above all a resort where sports and family values dominate over luxury and prestige. Following the construction of a dam in 1941, the village was relocated and many buildings were erected in response to a rapidly growing tourist demand. At the time the main focus was on construction rather than aesthetics which left critics with much to say on the architecture of the town itself. However, in recent years, Tignes has been undergoing a transformation in order to renovate the village and change its aesthetics to be more in line with the traditional Savoyard architecture, and create luxury properties which rival that of its neighbour but at significantly competitive prices.
Today Athena Advisers offers two different projects in the resort:
- The first, Eagle Lodge, is a high-end property offering only four apartments for sale from three to seven rooms that can also be joined to form two large properties. Each apartment is entirely customisable according to the owner's preferences. The residence is located on a south facing slope, allowing sunlight to illuminate the apartments, in the charming village of Les Brevieres, rightly recognised as the most charming of the resort's hamlets. These apartments offer a very competitive price per square meter around €6,000 / sqm which gives them a very attractive rental profitability.
- The second project, Semper Vivens, is located in the heart of the largest village of the resort, Tignes le Lac. On the slopes and only a few meters from all the facilities at the resort, the location of this project is its main asset. With a very modern architecture but still using noble and authentic materials, these three chalets fit perfectly into the landscape of the resort. Very luxurious and spacious, they have a relaxation area, en-suite bedrooms, a large sun terrace and a wellness centre.
Whether you choose a luxurious and authentic apartment in the charming village of Les Brévières a little further down in the valley or an avant-garde chalet on the shores of Lake Tignes, there is something for everyone.
Despite its recent and current renovations in the resort, Tignes retains a very sport-oriented atmosphere which remains its main attraction. Thanks to the Grande-Motte glacier you can ski 10 months out of 12 in the resort. In summer, or in the off-season, the life of the village remains very active and offers visitors one of the largest choice of activities and entertainment in the Alps.
There is no doubt that with its snow quality due to its high altitude (2100m) and the number of high-end activities and amenities that the resort offers, Tignes is one of the most promising resorts in the Alps.
