The property

Located in a typical Savoyard building, once a farmhouse and later a hotel, this brand-new four-bedroom penthouse for sale is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. Spanning 123 sqm across the top two floors of this brand-new real estate project, the apartment boasts four double bedrooms (two with en-suite bathrooms), two extra bathrooms, a separate toilet as well as a spacious living room and open-plan kitchen of 41 sqm which opens up onto a west-facing balcony. An underground parking space, a ski locker and a cellar are also included. Additional parking spaces can also be purchased at an extra cost.

Investment potential

Freehold properties are becoming rare in Châtel. With its growing popularity amongst French and international tourists alike, the town hall has started putting in place measures to prevent it from losing its timeless charm. Buildable plots are slowly released and rental restrictions have been put in place. This brand-new freehold apartment for sale, therefore, represents a unique investment opportunity on the Châtel property market.

On top of being able to freely occupy one’s property, this apartment is also very competitively priced at €8,150 per sqm in a resort where new-build properties can reach €10,000 per sqm. 

Finally, investing in a new-build property in France can also present interesting financial advantages. Under certain conditions, the future investors can also recuperate the VAT, i.e 20% of the purchase price. Athena’s team of experts will happily support you in every step of the purchase.


A well preserved alpine village, Châtel has grown over the past few years to become one of the most popular ski resorts in the Portes du Soleil ski domain. Its typical Savoyard charm and atmosphere have won over the heart of many French and international tourists and investors.

While the ski season still represents the most popular time of year when Châtel becomes a vibrant and busy village thanks to its easy access from Geneva airport and to the 650 km of groomed pistes, the summer months welcome more and more tourists as activities and events fill fully this period of the year. Châtel is a true dual-season resort.
