Ruth Gibbons - Grand Massif - Flaine, les Carroz

Ruth Gibbons
Located in the Haute-Savoie and facing Mont Blanc, the Grand Massif ski area is well known to snow sports enthusiasts all over Europe. It is home to 62 lifts and 139 runs, including the 14km Cascade run, the longest blue run in Europe, and is quickly developing into the nearest large ski resort to Geneva. Here you can find skiing for all abilities and many people return year on year to enjoy a winter visit. However, the area is not just a winter destination and offers summer visitors a wealth of activities, including paragliding, white water rafting, walking, mountain biking, road biking, fatbiking and of course a wealth of stunning scenery to enjoy. Whatever your reasons for purchasing, your budget or your taste, you will undoubtedly be able to find a property to suit your needs. From the predominantly pedestrian village of Flaine, with its selection of modern chalets and apartments, many of which are ski-in-ski-out and ideal as investment properties, to the range of picturesque alpine chalets in Les Carroz, ideal for primary or secondary residences, or indeed business opportunities, to rural properties ripe for renovation found in and around the small villages of the Grand Massif, there is something for everyone. The area is within easy reach of Geneva airport (1-1.25 hours drive) and close to the motorway network, making it an equally good location for either a holiday home, an investment property or indeed for a permanent residence.
