Winter Olympics Likely Heading to the French Alps in 2030

Winter Olympics Likely Heading to the French Alps in 2030

30th November 2023

As a leading real estate agency in the French Alps, we're thrilled to share the exciting news that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is in advanced discussions with France about the French Alps hosting the 2030 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

This prestigious opportunity highlights the region's global appeal and potential for significant socio-economic development.

Announced on the 29th November, this development is a testament to France's swift and impactful campaign for the Games, which aligns perfectly with our region's focus on exceptional living experiences and economic growth. While the final decision will be made in the summer of 2024, the French Alps stand out as the sole candidate in these in-depth discussions, signalling a strong possibility of hosting the event.

For our real estate market, this represents a unique opportunity. The Games are expected to span across four key Alpine regions, including Nice, Isola 2000, Briançonnais, and our own beloved Courchevel and Méribel, along with other locations. These areas are set to host various winter sports events, utilising and potentially upgrading existing facilities. This not only reaffirms the French Alps as a premier destination for winter sports but also promises to enhance property values and attract global attention to our region.

With France preparing to meet important milestones by March 2024, including comprehensive planning and guarantee submissions, we anticipate a surge in interest in Alpine properties. The potential of the 2030 Winter Games here in the French Alps opens up new prospects for investment, tourism, and the overall enhancement of our beautiful region. We're looking forward to the possibilities this brings to our clients and the community.
