Discover this standalone chalet for sale in Châtel in Les Portes du Soleil ski domain, French Alps. Part of an intimate collection of just two properties, this new-build chalet combines high-end finishes with a dominant, ski-in location. Free from any rental obligations, it is one of the last investment opportunities of its kind.
Why is this is an exciting opportunity?
New-build properties in Châtel are becoming increasingly rare as the town hall has ceased to issue further building permits to help the village retain its authentic Savoyard charm. This makes this freehold chalet for sale one of the last opportunities of its kind.
The chalet enjoys a prime location just south of the village centre, close to Châtel’s acclaimed aquatic centre Forme d’O and the Vonnes lake. The ski lift up to the slopes is a pleasant, 500-metre walk from the chalet. After a day on the slopes, you can simply ski back to your doorstep.
What about the property?
Set on a plot of 700 square metres, this standalone chalet offers the desirable mix of traditional Savoyard-inspired exteriors and a modern interior. Created by developers with a real passion for the materials they use and where they come from, the property is made from local, high-quality materials such as natural stone, aged wood and slate.
The chalet spans 220 square metres of habitable surface across three floors and boasts five large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a large terrace which offers panoramic views over the Linga and Abondance valley. There is also a garden - a rarity this close to the village centre - and a garage.
However, the true highlight of the property is its large open-plan living and dining space of 71 square metres. Offering vistas of the mountains from its large windows, this room boasts stunning cathedral ceilings and a fireplace.
One of the unique features of the chalet is that you can personalise the layout and decoration, allowing you to make it truly your own. There is also the opportunity to add extra bedrooms or a jacuzzi or a steam room to the property.

What’s the investment potential?
With restrictions on future new-build properties in Châtel, this chalet for sale is one of the last investment opportunities free from any rental obligations. When you take into account the property’s high-end finishes and abundance of outside space as well as the great location, this individual chalet is a rare find.
As a new-build property, you are eligible for a VAT rebate of 20% if you decide to rent out the chalet. Our dedicated Athena Client Relations team can help you with your VAT rebate application.
