For buying and selling property in Hauteluce

Hauteluce - part of the Les Saisies collection

Les Saisies is a renowned ski resort in the department of the Savoie in the French Alps, and it is made up of a collection of villages. Hauteluce is one of the most charming of these villages, offering not only the chance to experience some of the best skiing in the Alps, but also an authentic Savoyard environment set in one of the region's most beautiful valleys.

Pretty and traditional

Unlike the modern, purpose built ski resorts so often seen in the Alps, Hauteluce has a genuine Savoyard history and patrimony. Its lovely Baroque church, complete with frescoes and onion dome top, its traditional chalet-style homes and its glorious natural heritage, make it one of the prettiest and most interesting of all the small Beaufort territory villages.

Amenities on offer in the village

Besides its traditional aspect, Hauteluce provides some of the comforts of modern life, although you will still need to go to a larger town for more amenities or if you are seeking a really rowdy après ski scene as you won't find that in the village. It does have a small supermarket for everyday needs, however, as well as a tobacconist, a newsagent and a bar.

Sports and leisure

Anyone who enjoys mountain sports of any sort will be happy in Hauteluce. From gentle walking or pony trekking in the beautiful countryside of the valley, to adventure sports like rock climbing, downhill skiing or mountain biking... most sports you can imagine possible can be found close to this village. Winter sports are, of course, probably the biggest claim to fame. Skiers and snowboarders will be more than satisfied with the access to the slopes from a base in Hauteluce.

Explore local villages and sample the famous cheese

It is well worth exploring some of the other local villages, as each has its own charm and individual attractions. Many acclaimed cheeses are made in this area (Beaufort, Abondance, Tomme Savoie to name just three!), and you can visit the producers to see how the cheeses are made and to taste them to find your own favourites. Sights in the vicinity also include the Girotte Lake and Dam, the stunning Col de Saisies and views of Mont Blanc.

Try the Mountain Twister

From discovering natural, traditional crafts and days spent simply enjoying the scenery, it may seem a leap to find a white knuckle ride also on the doorstep, but the Mountain Twister is just that. In winter, this exhilarating sled ride is bound to be popular with thrill seekers, as it twists and speeds its way down a 750-metre snow track.

How to get there

Chambéry, Geneva, Grenoble and Lyon are all good airports for accessing the region by air. Chambéry is served by Flybe and Jet 2; Geneva by a multitude of airlines; Grenoble by Ryanair, easyJet and BMI Baby; and Lyon by British Airways, Air France, BMI Baby and easyJet. You can also travel by rail as the region is served by Eurostar and TGV services. The town is found on the D70 for drivers. The A40 and N90 are the nearest major roads.

Property prices and availability in and around Hauteluce

Prices can be high, as Hauteluce is part of one of the Alps' most desirable ski areas. Property is traditionally built here, with lovely wooden chalets rather than towering apartment blocks. This type of authentic mountain property does come with a price tag, but it is possible to find some very realistic prices if you keep a keen eye on the market. At the higher end of the price scale you can find luxury ski in, ski out chalets for over a million Euros, but if you don't have that much to spend (not many of us do!) it is also possible to find apartments in traditional chalets or renovation properties for under 300,000 Euros, putting the chance of a home in Hauteluce within the grasp of a far wider public!
