Are you thinking of moving to the French Alps for an entirely different way of life – or at least to invest in a Chamonix property – so you can enjoy your long weekends and holidays in the mountains. In terms of property styles, Chamonix is known for its picturesque chalets, exactly what you imagine alpine properties to look like. Depending on your personal taste, you can find plenty of traditional log cabins as well as new, modern homes.
No matter what type of property you buy, you’ll love living in the French Alps year-round – in addition to winter sports, there’s also a vibrant town centre and nightlife scene. Summertime means biking, canoeing, fishing, hiking, golfing, rock climbing and, if you’re not exhausted yet, exciting whitewater rafting. Since Chamonix is so popular with tourists, this is an ideal location if you work in the travel or transportation industry, or if you want to rent your property out part-time.
