Alpe d'Huez - Grand Domaine - French Alps
This ski-in ski-out apartment occupies a superb location moments from the main snow front in Les Bergers which is served by the Marmottes, Rif Nel, Romains and Alpauris lifts. From this privileged spot, the dynamic Quartier des Jeux, the Bergers lake, restaurants and shops are just a few minutes’ walk away.
This apartment spans 43.62 sqm on the fourth floor of a brand-new chalet-style building. The living area features glass sliding doors that let in plenty of light and open up to a spacious balcony of 8.15 sqm with spectacular views over the village, the slopes on the snow front and the mountains of the Massif des Écrins. The property features underfloor heating, parquet flooring in the living and sleeping areas, an underground lockable garage with space for one car and a ski locker.
Future owners will also benefit from access to a concierge service and an impressive array of wellness facilities including a gym, a swimming pool and a spa (complete with a sauna, a hammam and massage rooms).
It's an exciting time to invest in Alpe d'Huez as there are plans in motion to connect the resort with Le Deux Alpes via a ski lift by 2023. Upon completion, Alpe d'Huez will become a part of the third-largest ski domain in the French Alps with 450km of groomed pistes on the doorstep, further increasing the popularity of this sought-after resort. This means that these well-located properties are set for both capital appreciation and increased rental demand over the coming years.
This apartment is sold with a very flexible hassle-free rental agreement in place that enables owners to occupy the property whenever they want and rent it out for the rest of the time. By doing this, not only will they be able to generate rental income throughout the year, thanks to the resort's lively summer and winter seasons, but they will also have the opportunity to reclaim the 20% VAT from the property purchase price.
