Alpe d'Huez - Grand Domaine - French Alps
Located in the oldest part of the resort, le Quartier du Vieil Alpe, this one-bedroom ski apartment for sale in Alpe d’Huez is very competitively priced for this high altitude resort and represents an excellent investment opportunity. This new-build apartment enjoys a central location just 200m from the ski lift to Les Bergers and steps away from the télécentre which is an internal lift that connects the different parts of the village to le Rond Point des Pistes at the top of the resort.
This apartment for sale is part of a collection of 56 residences spread across five farmhouse-inspired buildings and includes a cellar, garage parking and a ski locker equipped with a boot warmer. Located on the fourth floor, this property spans 44 sqm and features one bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, a fully equipped kitchen, an open-plan living and dining area and a bathroom.
Future owners will also have the option to work with an interior architect to personalise the layout of the property.
At €6,840 per sqm, this apartment is well-priced for Alpe d’Huez and competitively priced for the French Alps as a whole as it is rare to find properties in resorts above 1,800m for less than €10,000 per sqm. Properties in other high altitude resorts, such as Méribel and Val d'Isère, can reach prices up to four times as high.
Already an in-demand resort, Alpe d’Huez is set to become even more popular thanks to an on-going €185m renovation project which includes plans to link the resort to Les Deux Alpes. This means that properties here are set to benefit from capital appreciation and stronger rental yields in the coming years.
As a new-build property, future owners will benefit from lower notary fees and can apply for a VAT rebate of €50,833 if they decide to rent out their property and certain conditions are met.
Crowned the 'Best European Ski Resort 2020' by European Best Destinations, Alpe d’Huez is a family-friendly resort in the Grand Domaine and boasts access to 250km of groomed pistes.
Whilst skiing is certainly the main draw, the resort hosts a number of events throughout the year. This includes the popular winter edition of the Tomorrowland music festival and the International Comedy Film Festival. Thanks to its famous climb with 21 hairpin bends, the Tour de France often passes through Alpe d’Huez too.
