Your Alpine Property Investment - A Year Round OpportunityJuly 1, 2024

Long before the downhill skiers, the snow park snowboarders and the cross country mountain bikers arrived in the Alps, our mountain resorts were a different kind of real estate destination, one of farmers and Alpine chalets. The advent of skiing in the 1930s gave rise to the French resorts we love so much today. With this craze came new accommodation, improved access to the mountains and more reasons to stay in the mountains in winter. 

Today, the Alps have become a very attractive destination in both summer and winter, because they have been able to reinvent themselves on a daily basis to keep pace with climate change and become four-season resorts. Of course, many people continue to associate the Alps primarily with winter holidays. You’ll imagine the cold against your face, the breeze as you board a ski lift, the snowflakes that rest on your jacket as you whizz down the slopes. You’ll remember with fondness the snowball fights with your children and large mugs of hot chocolate while watching the snow fall outside. For many decades our mountain communities existed solely for the winter season. But times are changing; our owners across the Alps now enjoy their property - and generate rental income - throughout the year. The four seasons now offer excellent investment opportunities that grow from year to year. 

The Springtime Wanderers

In recent years, many of our property owners have expressed to us their joy when visiting their apartments during the months of spring. As the snow melts, the alpine flora and fauna begin to emerge from their winter hibernation, giving our owners a new perspective of the mountains. The warmer, longer days signal to the Chamois and the Ibex - the mountains are waking up once more. Spring is a delightful time to take a holiday in the mountains, and in our Alpine Lodges resort of Courchevel, many events are planned to bring the mountains back to life. Walkers, trail runners and ramblers are encouraged to visit the villages, which have a tranquil awakening to offer, which is appreciated by our owners. Meanwhile in Les Gets, Alta Lumina is an enchanted walk through the forest at dusk. Using hologram, light and sound, it tells the story of a hot air ballon, which crashed into the forest during a storm. This is a magical experience and it’s open all year round, supporting Les Gets’ own drive towards four seasons tourism and for the benefit of our owners in this charming resort.

Under the Summer Sun

LesThe resorts of Courchevel, Méribel, Val d’Isere and Les Gets have been at the forefront of the summer holiday economy for several decades, investing in unique activities, high profile events and yearround facilities to keep the mountain spirit alive. Naturally, Alpine Lodges property owners in each of these resorts enjoy the benefits of this investment. Courchevel has played a significant role on Le Tour de France in recent years, under the careful gaze of millions of road cycling fans worldwide. In Val d’Isere, summer lift passes are provided free of charge, encouraging visitors to explore the lush, green mountains during a different kind of holiday. Meanwhile in Les Gets, the village has become world famous for hosting the highest profile events of the global mountain biking community on behalf of the UCI. In recent years our Alpine Residences teams in Les Gets, Courchevel and Val d’Isere have experienced a significant upturn in demand for accommodation during the summer months, the impact of which is felt on the demand for property purchases in the village.

The Colours of Autumn

It’s no surprise to find temperatures in the mid twenties during the autumn months in the Alps and many of our owners visit their properties during this time of year, enjoying some tranquility before winter arrives. All around the trees begin their annual colour change and this is a spectacle to behold. Picture postcard views are easy to access while the October school holidays see our resorts host activities and events specifically for families, many of which are enjoyed by our owners. In Meribel for example, foraging and hiking tours are hosted by local experts while walking itineraries have been carefully curated with Mother Nature as the backdrop. In Les Gets, the newly opened Luge 4 Saisons provides hours of fun on a long, winding, fast trail through the forest and the site becomes a hive of activity.

All Roads lead to Winter

The changing seasons are inevitable and often it seems like all roads lead to winter. However, our property owners tell us that they’ve discovered a new found appreciation for the mountains - and their property investments - by visiting during a different time of year, when the pace is slower and the weather warmer.
