Traditional village vs Purpose-built ski resort properties, that is the question
At FindHomeAbroad we understand that when looking for that ideal ski property for sale we are all different and this is why we have a fair selection of charming traditional mountain village properties as well as modern purpose-built ski resort properties. Traditional and picturesque ski resorts tend to be at lower altitude therefore offer more pleasant sceneries with trees and inhabitants living in village all year round not just during the ski season. As a rule of thumb these traditional mountain villages tend to offer better dual-season prospects and villages like Samoens or Les Gets tend to attract many visitors during the summer months. The negative of this type of ski resort for hardcore skiers is that lift facilities can be inferior and often do not guarantee ski in ski out skiing (Check our ski in ski out properties for sale).
Now if skiing is your main target, purpose-built ski resorts do offer the best you could wish for: top lift connections, ski in ski out, guaranteed snow on all slopes and ski properties for sale which are totally adapted to the prime reason why you are there in the first place: skiing!
When deciding to purchase that ski property for sale in the French alps you are usually faced with two choices nowadays: buying a ski property in what the French call a “Residence de tourisme” which is a brand new development with top of the range facilities like reception, sauna or Spa, heated swimming pool usually in a prime location in the ski resort. You are then guaranteed tax-free rental income for minimum of 9 years as well as weeks of personal use each year which is more than enough for 90% of ski property owners (also these properties benefit from full VAT rebate). The other option is to purchase an outright ski property and use as you wish and let through local agents or holiday rental websites.
