Moments from the main snow front, this eagerly anticipated collection of 23 apartments is one of the few new-build property developments in the centre of Val d'Isère to be released this ski season.

Offering world-class skiing and a legendary après-ski scene, Val d'Isère is one of the Alps’ most iconic ski resorts. Created by an experienced developer, these brand-new apartments enjoy a superb location in the delightful village centre and moments from the main snow front where you'll find the Solaise and Bellevarde ski lifts.

With limited space for new properties and strict building regulations in place, brand-new properties in this iconic ski resort are few and far between. This is an opportunity not to be missed.

The ski apartments

Paying homage to the local architecture, this brand-new collection of apartments will be built in a traditional style using local stone, larch wood cladding and slate roofing. Occupying the plot of a former residence that once housed 80 small properties, L’Ecrin is composed of just 23 spacious apartments with one to five bedrooms. In addition, nearly all of the apartments come with a bunk bedroom - perfect for accommodating young children.

A truly special collection of apartments, great care has gone into the interior design and the future owners will have the option to choose the materials used depending on whether they would like traditional Alpine interiors or something more contemporary. Each residence is sold beautifully furnished and fully equipped, meaning that it is ready to enjoy or start generating rental income immediately upon delivery. 

All of these light-filled apartments feature large windows and generously sized exterior space for taking in the dazzling views over the Solaise, the Fornet and Col de l’Iseran. Ski lockers, cellars and parking are included.

Taking cues from the Alpine landscape, L’Ecrin will boast elegant communal areas including an igloo-inspired reception area. Whether you are looking for some well-deserved relaxation or want to keep up with your fitness regime, there is an impressive wellness area with a spa, a gym and a swimming pool.

Investment potential

In recent years, the Val d'Isère property market has predominantly consisted of resale properties as the town hall has strict building regulations in place and the village is set in a valley surrounded by the protected Vanoise National Park. This means that the resort stopped expanding outwards many years ago and new-build properties only appear on the market when older hotels or residences are redeveloped. 

Moments from the centre and ski lifts and with excellent wellness facilities, these spacious properties for sale in Val d'Isère will make a fantastic lifestyle investment and as demand far outweighs supply in this coveted resort, these apartments will benefit from capital appreciation over the coming years.

As new-build properties, these apartments have notary fees of 2% - this is at least 5% lower than the fees applicable to resale properties. Whilst these apartments are sold without a rental obligation, it is possible to reclaim the 20% VAT from the property purchase price if the future owners place these properties on the lucrative short-term rental market.

Get to know Val d’Isère


“New-build properties in Val d'Isère are increasingly rare due to the location of the village and the strict building regulations in place. This makes these new well-located apartments a very exciting investment in a market dominated by resales.”
