Ski property expert Isobel Rostron of Aspect International takes a look at what’s hot and what’s not in the ski property market.
‘Value’ is still the buzz word among savvy alpine investors, and if you know where to look it is possible to pick up a good ski pad at a cool price. With Euro and Swiss mortgage rates at record lows, there’s rarely been a better time to buy your own piece of the mountain.
Kitz Kristall Mountain Resort, Kaprun
Invest in the Kitz Kristall Mountain Resort development in Kaprun and enjoy the Austrian lakes and mountains year-round without breaking the bank. Centrally located in the heart of the traditional Austrian village, the one-to-four-bedroom apartments are ideally placed for winter skiing in the Ski Europa Sport Region, and lazy summer days by Lake Zell.
A one-bedroom apartment starts at €99,000.
Swizterland’s 4 VallÉes for less than £200k?
Chalets Mura, Les Collons
Think a luxury chalet with Matterhorn views and ski-in/ski-out access to Switzerland’s largest ski area is beyond the budget? Think again. Buyers of a newly renovated chalet in the Mura development in Les Collons, 4 Vallées, will enjoy all that plus the option of a five-year guaranteed rental return.
A two-bedroom chalet from CHF375,000.
Blanc views for a snip
Le Bossonade, Chamonix
The Mont Blanc backdrop is one advantage of the Bossonade apartment renovation in the Chamonix Valley; the other is the price. At a staggering €3,600 per square metre, the apartments in the former pizzeria/bakery can be bought as a ‘raw space’ or fully renovated, allowing buyers to match their style requirements as well as their budget.
From €220,000 for a two-bedroom apartment shell.
