Alpe d'Huez - Grand Domaine - French Alps
Situated in the charming Vieil Alpe area, this five-bedroom ski penthouse for sale in Alpe d’Huez is moments away from the ski lift to Les Bergers, restaurants, shops and the télécentre up to le Rond Point des Pistes.
One of the development’s largest properties, this penthouse for sale spans 150 sqm across two floors. On the first floor of the property lies two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, an open-plan living and dining area of 40 sqm and a balcony. A further three bedrooms can be found on the top floor.
The property also includes a cellar, garage parking and a ski locker with a boot warmer
Now is an exciting time to invest in Alpe d’Huez as the resort is undergoing a €185m renovation project which includes plans to connect the resort to Les Deux Alpes via a ski lift. This would make Alpe d’Huez part of the third-largest ski domain in the French Alps, thereby competing with resorts in Les Portes du Soleil and the Three Valleys. This means that properties in the resort will benefit from strong capital appreciation in the future and even better rental yields.
If future owners decide to rent out the penthouse and certain conditions are met, they can apply for a 20% VAT rebate on the property price.
Part of the Grand Domaine, Alpe d’Huez boasts reliable snow coverage and access to 250km of groomed pistes including the longest back run in the French Alps: the Sarenne.
Alpe d’Huez also has a lively events calendar with a number of festivals and sporting events throughout the year. Thanks to its legendary climb with 21 gruelling hairpin bends, the Tour de France often passes through the resort.
