Méribel - Les Trois Vallees - French Alps
Located in the prestigious Rond Point des Pistes area, this exceptional four-bedroom ski apartment for sale in Les Gets boasts an amazing ski-in ski-out location by the pistes that will take you down to the front de neige in the centre of the village. Previously part of a popular hotel, which is being completed transformed, this is one of the most exciting additions to the Méribel property market in the last few years.
Located on the first floor, this 143 sqm property for sale in Les Gets is composed of four double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and a large living room which on its own is spread over 65 square metres.

Because the building is being renovated entirely, the French authorities are regarding it as new build, which not only means that it comes with reduced buying costs of 2% (as opposed to 7-8% for older resale property), it also means buyers have the possibility to recuperate 20% VAT from the purchase price, as long as they intend to rent it on an ongoing basis.

It is also a great destination for cycling enthusiasts. Last year, the Tour de France passed through Méribel along the new Col de la Loze path. Reaching 2,304m in altitude, Col de la Loze was the highest point of the 2020 tour and it is expected that Méribel will make a regular appearance in future events.
