Why is this opportunity so exciting?
This is the perfect buy-to-let opportunity as these properties are sold with a light rental obligation meaning that you can leave your apartment in the hands of a rental management company that will rent out your property for you in a hassle-free way. You will still be able to occupy your apartment a few weeks per year when you decide to and enjoy the high rental yields all year long, thanks to Alpe d’Huez’s dual-season popularity.
The residence offers a large range of services and on-site facilities such as a pool, a spa area with a massage room, spa, steam room and jacuzzi, a ski shop and a concierge service including babysitting and culinary services, taxis, airport transfers, helicopter tour reservations and much more.
What’s the investment potential?
With a €185 million investment plan coming to Alpe d’Huez by 2022 and beyond, rental yields and capital appreciation within the property market are expected to grow in the near future. Investments are being made to regenerate the whole ski lift system in a 20-year-long plan, and build a gondola in the lower altitude village of Huez and connect Alpe d’Huez to Les Deux Alpes via a new lift. The Grand Domain ski area will become the third biggest ski domain in the French Alps, thereby competing with giants like Les Portes du Soleil and the Three Valleys.
Even with the resort’s future plans, prices still remain low compared to the other resorts Alpe d’Huez is about to compete with. With Val d’Isère prices sometimes reaching €25,000 per square metre and even up to €40,000 in Courchevel 1850, this residence is well-priced with an average price per square metre of €9,000 in a ski-in ski-out location.
What about the properties?
These one to four-bed apartments for sale are located in an amazing spot in a ski-in ski-out location, by the piste, just 50 metres away from the ski lift to Les Bergers front de neige.

Finally, the Télécentre lift will allow you to ski back to your property directly from the Rond Point des Pistes front de neige.

The communal on-site facilities and services that the residence offers are very high end so that the occupiers almost feel like they are in a hotel.
Why Alpe d’Huez?
Dubbed the Island of Sun due to its high altitude and 300 days of sun, Alpe d’Huez is composed of four main neighbourhoods that each have a different feel. The Vieil Alpe where the residence lies is the most quaint and charming part of Alpe d’Huez while the Quartier des Jeux is where the main amenities are such as shops, restaurants, bars, the communal pool and ice rink. There are two fronts de neige in le Rond Point des Pistes and les Bergers, the newest area of the resort.
