Super-prime locations most important for French ski property buyers

22nd February 2013

As the half way period for the ski season approaches, Athena Advisors reports that more and more people are requesting ski properties in super-prime locations. Over 89% of the company’s ski property enquiries this season have been for chalets and apartments within less than 100m walk from pistes, lifts and local amenities. 

“Investors like super-prime locations as they provide the best returns, but we’re now seeing more lifestyle purchasers, like families, request such properties as it means their children don’t have to travel far by foot,” said Nicholas Leach at Athena Advisors. “Properties in super-prime locations very rarely changed hands so buyers with budgets of €150,000 to €500,000 are normally priced out. However, occasionally buyers can get their hands on properties in great locations without the customary seven-figure price tag.”

Prime ski properties in Chatel from €145,000…

Athena has launched Les Fermes de Chatel, a brand new collection of ski properties in Chatel, which occupy a perfect location at the top of the village, in front of the slopes and adjacent to the Super-Chatel ski lift. Within this beautiful and traditional Savoyard resort this fantastic range of high specification properties occupy what is considered by many to be the most sought after prime location in the entire village.

“Les Fermes de Chatel definitely has a super-prime location, yet its price tag would suggest the opposite. It is highly rare for a new collection of ski properties to be in such a position, especially in a resort such as Chatel,” added Leach. 

Directly in front of the slopes and adjacent to the Super-Chatel telecabine these properties are perfectly position to enjoy the Les Portes du Soleil ski domain, which is literally on the doorstep. This location also means Les Fermes de Chatel is at the summit of the village, which affords close proximity to shops and also panoramic views over Chatel.

The properties at Les Fermes de Chatel are available through the highly popular leaseback structure which provides owners with consistent guaranteed rental yields and personal usage. Up to 5% returns are available which represents the best yields of any leaseback property currently available in the village.

Prices for the one to three bedroom properties at Les Fermes de Chatel range from at €145,000 - €404,000.
