A never-ending blanket of pristine, white snow is a skier’s idea of a relaxing, restorative getaway. With the French Alps providing skiing for all levels, adventure-seekers and mountain-lovers are a perfect fit for a luxury ski property in France. When you need a break from the rigors of being on the slopes, head to town or take advantage of the après-ski scene. Between the memorable experiences and the outstanding landscape scenery, you may decide that it’s worth investing in your very own holiday home in this stunning region of France. Here are five, must-see luxury mountain and ski properties in the French Alps that would make the perfect holiday home invest.
1. Six-Bedroom Chalet in Megève
This six-bedroom chalet in Megève is a short, five-minute walk from the village centre. Though rustic and cozy, with beams overhead and a roaring fireplace, this home is truly contemporary and sleek. Store your “special occasion” reds and whites in the wine cellar and relax in the Jacuzzi at the end of a long day of skiing. Outside, the balcony and terraces can be enjoyed even when the sun goes down thanks to beautiful lighting.
2. Three-Bedroom Apartment in Courchevel
Situated directly on the slopes in Courchevel, this three-bedroom apartment has an additional bunk bedroom that’s perfect for the kids or unexpected guests (you may have more friends than you realised when you own this type of property). Upon waking, gaze out the windows that make up almost an entire wall to take in the mountain views, then head out onto your private balcony to breathe in the fresh air.
In addition to a concierge service, the building includes a wellness centre with a state-of-the-art spa, private swimming pool and gym, plus a bar, restaurant (with outdoor dining under the shade of umbrellas) and a ski shop. Each apartment also has a private cave and an underground parking space.
3. Charming Chalet in Verbier
Possibly the best part of this charming chalet in Verbier is that it comes furnished and move-in ready, with pleasing neutral furniture that allows you to make the space your own. Features of the home include a large living room with fireplace and an open kitchen on the upper floor. The attic is home to the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, plus a second bedroom and a shower room; there are three additional bedrooms on a lower floor. The home also has a garage with two private parking spaces.
4. Modern House in Combloux
Every inch of this house in Combloux is modern and sophisticated, from the partially-covered, spacious terrace to the luxury dorm-style room. High ceilings and windows let in tons of light, and the entrance hall has cupboards perfect for storing your ski and snowboard equipment (there’s a separate ski room, too). Even more features include a cinema room, gym, reading room, and relaxation centre with a jacuzzi, sauna and its own living room. All-in-all, the home can accommodate up to 14 people.
