Investment property for sale in the Alps with high yield - over 5 % guaranteed.
The Apartment…. The Aigle Bleu is a new residence in Briancon which was completed in 2013. Here we have one of the larger apartments for sale which has a vast 80 m2 of habitable space. It is within a “Residence de Tourisme” with concierge service and many extras including gym and spa with sauna.
The apartment is being sold with a “leaseback” contract in place where the owner gives responsibility of the unit to a management company who in return offer guaranteed rental income of over 5 %. The owner has 3 weeks use of the apartment - 1 week in winter and 2 other weeks low season. This is not to be confused with timeshare as the buyer actually OWNS the walls. The apartment is on the 2nd floor and has a 6 m2 balcony with mountain views. It has a very large living area / kitchen / dining area of 37 m2 which is all fully equipped and furnished. There are 3 spacious bedrooms and a large bathroom with separate shower and bath. There is private underground parking and the residence is just 20 m from the Prorel Telecabine which joins the Serre Chevalier ski domain.
This is a fantastic investment where the owner can enjoy great return and quality management. The management company also offers owners use of other residences in France in exchange for their weeks allocation.
The Area... Briancon is the town situated at the lower end of the Serre Chevalier ski valley. It is the highest town in France (and some argue the highest in Europe) and has a natural population of around 14,00 0 inhabitanats. It is unique in many ways, not least the fact that it is listed on the UNESCO world heritage list, which makes it the only ski resort with this credit. A walk through the historic Old Town takes you back centuries through old cobbled streets and tall narrow buildings which are perched on the precipitous ramparts over looking the rest of town and Serre Chevalier beyond. It has been fought over for centuries as it is has been a key trading and transport link. It is for this reason that the highest points surrounding Briancon have magnificent forts and castles overlooking the town, all of which can be accessed by foot in summer and winter. The nearest airports are Turin in Italy and Grenoble Isere and there is train access by TGV just over the border in Oulx, Italy.
Serre Chevalier Ski Area
This “jewel in the crown” is one of the best kept secrets in the southern alps. Here the high tree line coupled with amazing off piste make it an all-round ski paradise. Unlike many other mountain resorts, The Serre Chevalier Valley is made up of many villages and hamlets as well as the town of Briancon, the highest town in France.
Monetier Les Bains, the highest of the villages ,has a typical alpine atmosphere as well as having the beautiful open air spa baths. Here you can relax after a hard days ski and enjoy the magnificent views of the hanging glacier and snow capped peaks.
Serre Chevalier isn't a purpose built resort and as such is an ideal place to consider having an alpine home with all of the facilities associated with normal living – transport, education and shops. At the same time this amazing resort is only a few kms away from hidden valleys, high mountain pastures and the vast Ecrin national park.
Transport to Serre Chevalier is much easier than before with regular flights to both Grenoble and Turin airports.
