Chamonix: A unique and captivating destination

When looking to purchase a ski-friendly holiday home, the resort of Chamonix will not disappoint. With access to 5 ski resorts (Grands Montets, Les Houches, Le Tour/Le Balme, La Flegere and Le Brevent) and an extensive European ski region (Megève, Saint-Gervais, Les Contamines and Courmayeur in Italy), the fashionable French resort is located at the base of Mont Blanc (the highest summit in the Alps), making it a mecca for skiers and hikers alike. Furthermore, Chamonix’s location by the borders of France, Switzerland and Italy provide a strategic half-way point for reaching Verbier and the 4 Vallées ski region; for infinite year-round leisure possibilities!

Easily accessible for ski holidays

The strategic position and excellent resort infrastructure of Chamonix make it a highly accessible year-round destination. Chamonix benefits from 2 train stations, a bus station, frequent airport shuttle transfers and direct motorway links to Geneva airport, 70 minutes’ drive away. The international-feeling resort town is also very well serviced with a wide selection of shops, bars, restaurants and family-friendly facilities to complement self-catering stays and year-round residency.

A place of uncompromising scenery & natural beauty

Another primary reason for investing in Chamonix is for the scenery; which is nothing short of spectacular! The beautiful landscape and breath-taking mountain scenery can be admired from ground level and from height; with a paragliding flight, high-altitude climb or with a cable car ride up to the ski slopes and Chamonix’s highest peak, Aiguille du Midi (3,842m).

Chamonix: An affordable investment destination

Despite house prices in Chamonix increasing by 4.8% in 2017, the average house price in Chamonix is still lower than those of other nearby ski resorts (Megève and Méribel for example). A healthy year-round rental income can also be achieved in Chamonix – thanks to its wide range of winter and summer sport activities and facilities, alongside the resort’s buzzing annual events and festival programme.

Chamonix resort continues to look to the future, with multiple resort improvements currently underway, from the regional €24 million Mont Blanc express investment, to the new gondolas, funiculars and cable cars currently under construction at Compagnie du Mont Blanc.

Whether it is to complement an existing property investment portfolio, or for personal enjoyment with the option to earn a healthy holiday rental income, owning a second home in Chamonix is a superb investment opportunity.
