Unique 4 bedroom town house, Aigueblanche centre, garden, close to 3 Valleys and Valmorel Ski Resorts
- 15 minutes drive to ski resort
- Balcony, terrace or garden providing an area large enough for dining.
A spacious 4 bedroom town house, in Aigueblanche centre, close to amenities, with large garden. This very unusual property offers the best of town living in the Alps in a tranquil setting and is just 10km from Valmorel and 15km from the nearest 3 Valleys lift for excellent skiing.
This renovated farmhouse, with 250m2 of living space, is situated just off the main street in Aigueblanche but is set back to provide a peaceful environment. It can be accessed from the main street or via a private drive at the back of the house, leading to the garden and terrace.
The house is set over 2 floors with the caves beneath. The main living area is at the same height as the garden with fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, a large dining area, plus sitting room and office. The master bedroom, with ensuite bathroom and a separate WC is also on this floor.
The living area and kitchen lead on a terrace and on the garden where there is a built in barbeque and a large log storage area, as well as greenhouses and fruit cages.
The terrain is approximately 600m2 in total.
Upstairs is a mezzanine level, which could be converted to a bedroom or be left as a sitting room, plus 2 additional bedrooms and a bathroom. The house has been renovated to a very high standard and offers excellent living accommodation. There is a possibility to buy the house fully furnished if preferred.
Aigueblanche is small town with good amenities and excellent transport routes being just 2km from Moutiers, where the snow train arrives, and 150km from Geneva and Lyon airports.
The ski station of Valmorel is just 10km from the house, with a regular bus service. The nearest lift to access the 3 Valleys, incorporating Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens, is 15km away. This is a lovely family home or a great base to ski from to access all the Tarantaise Valley resorts.
Le Grand Domain Ski Area
Le Grand Domain consists of Valmorel, Celliers, Doucy and Saint-François Longchamp. It’s an excellent ski area that remains relatively unknown to many British skiers in comparison to the nearby ski areas of the Three Valleys and Espace Killy. In fact the back of this area actually overlooks the Belleville valley, one of the Three Valleys.
Saint-François Longchamp is located in the heart of the Maurienne Valley, in the south of Savoie whilst the resorts of Valmorel, Doucy and Celliers are based in the heart of the Tarentaise mountain range, and provide skiing for those who like to be a little closer to nature.
The ski area is spread over an altitude of 1,300 to 2,832 metres offering a wonderful 160kms of piste. It also has a vast range of Nordic skiing circuits available and this also includes separate resorts like Naves. There is no doubt that this area caters particularly well for families and the French flock here, hence there are more apartments than chalets. It is an area of outstanding beauty, great skiing and a vast wilderness away from the piste.
The resorts are very varied; Valmorel is the largest and most well known with a lovely village centre and lively atmosphere. Saint-François is a small bur well conceived resort that is also family orientated. Celliers is a tiny mountain village with an auberge that just happens to have a ski lift that links in to this area. This is a ski destination for those who really like to be far from the madding crowds.
Valmorel Ski Resort
Valmorel is a charming ski resort; it is a smaller size with some of its neighbours and is often compared to the huge resorts of nearby Three Valleys and Espace Killy, which is a bit unfair as this resort has a lot to offer in the way of skiing and charm. The centre is pedestrianised giving the après ski a very cosy and fun feel.
The resort nestles on the edge of the forest, next to the Cheval noir peak - Valmorel is a village that melts in with the landscape. The wooded, stoned and lauze roofed chalets spread around the ski lift departure points, the well designed centre and nice pedestrian street full of shops and restaurants give Valmorel a heart and it is a place where you will feel welcome and gives Valmorel its unrivalled character of a Savoyard village.
Also very popular and busy in the summer when tourists come to enjoy every type of mountain activity as well as the beautiful views and flower meadows. The ski area offers a diversity of terrain for the confirmed and adventurous skiers on the vertiginous black slopes and yet is also reassuring for beginners and children to learn on the gentle slopes of summer pastures.
Before I lived here I used to come for long weekends to Valmorel – and never had a dull visit, it always delivers for me. Specially equipped and secured areas have been designed especially for those new to the snow: 2 beginner stadiums for adults and children, and for those not so new - a snowpark including a half-pipe and a boarder cross.
Down the valley from Valmorel you’ll find La Léchère a small thermal town which provides all sorts of therapies to experiment with! Valmorel also has some charming satellite resorts which in themselves are worth a visit. Doucy Combelouvière, Longchamp and Celliers all with their own ski lifts and identity.
If you’re feeling adventurous get yourself a guide, the off-piste is meant to be interesting! So in winter this resort sits best with beginners and intermediates but also has a lot to offer the more hardened skier who is prepared to seek out the challenges.
In summer it’s a delight, the cycling in particular is stunning with plenty of refuges open for very good lunches. This is a great place to buy with prices lower than its neighbouring resorts mostly because it hasn’t got the following that the others have.
