Best Ski Apartments for Sale in France in 2019

France - the ideal location for your ski apartment

France is the top ski destination

Unofficial reports show that France is still sitting at the top at number one, as the country with the best skiing in the world. The USA lies at number two, and Switzerland at number three.

French ski apartments make a good investment

France is not only the top ski destination in the world, it's also a great place to invest in property. Even during the recent recession, property in French ski resorts has held its value well. Ski apartments in the popular resorts are always a desirable commodity. Buyers flock to the French ski resorts from all over the world. (Ski property.)

Advantages of owning a ski apartment

A ski apartment is more than just a property investment however. Once bought, the apartment is yours to use whenever you wish, making impromptu long weekends possible as well as those planned for holidays. And, there is always the possibility of a rental income. Due to the popularity of the French resorts with tourists, it is easy to rent out your property when not using it, to offset the costs of your investment and your own holidays. ( Letting property in France.)

Best location for your ski apartment

As always with property, location is paramount. Luckily, France offers many excellent resorts and options. Among the best are Morzine (access to the Portes du Soleil ski area and first class facilities for both on and off piste activities), Megève (stylish and with a charming Savoyard character) and Les Gets (catering for all levels of skiers from beginners to experts). These are some of the front runners, but there are many more resorts in which to find your perfect apartment. Look too at Courchevel, Chatel, Sainte Foy Tarentaise - each resort has its own distinctive character and a wide choice of apartments.

Centre of the resort or further afield?

If you choose a ski apartment in the centre of a resort like Megève or Morzine, you will find not only easy access to lifts and slopes, but also lots of other entertainment and services on your doorstep. Centre resort properties are sought after, but still easy to find. They are also likely to be the easiest to rent out. However, while less convenient for lifts and services, it is also possible to benefit from buying an apartment in a more rural setting. Sometimes these can be found in old converted farms and offer a chance to get away from it all and just enjoy the peace of the mountains.

Apartments for all tastes and budgets

Apartments come in various shapes and sizes, often dictated by budget. But the good news is that you can find a small, studio apartment for as little as 50,000 Euros. Or, choose a luxury apartment directly on the ski slopes. That will cost a little more, of course, but the advantages are legion. Ski in, ski out properties never lose their appeal to keen skiers.

How to choose your ski apartment

Different people have different requirements from a ski apartment. For some, ski in, ski out is the most important consideration, or at least ease of access to lifts. For others, it may be a balcony, a view, or distance to local shops, restaurants and bars. Apartments may be found in one level properties or high rise blocks. They may have car parking or garage facilities. It's largely down to personal taste, which you choose.

Facilities offered in apartment buildings

And there are other certain features that you might look for when choosing your apartment. Many apartments have ski rooms with lockers where you can leave your equipment as you enter the building. There may also be drying facilities for wet ski clothing. Some apartment buildings have lifts, which are useful if you are not on the ground floor, as climbing stairs after a hard days skiing can be tough! Quite apart from having to climb stairs with arms full of groceries etc. And it is worth bearing in mind that if your apartment building doesn't have these facilities, the noise and effort of walking in ski boots and lugging skis around needs to be taken into consideration. Perhaps a top floor apartment may be better in this situation, as this would mean there is no disturbance overhead? Though if there is no lift, would this still be an advantage? Then some apartments offer residents-only access to leisure clubs with pools and spas. In general terms, the more you pay for your apartment, the more extras you get.

New developments in French ski resorts

The past year has seen some exciting new developments in French ski resorts. And, buying an apartment in a brand new development can be a great choice. These types of apartments are ready to move into, carry guarantees of quality and are very popular with rental customers. They frequently offer state of the art facilities, and as an added bonus, they may also be available on leaseback agreements. ( Leaseback Property in France.)

2019 is the time to buy

Confidence is returning to the property market in France. Interest in ski property is high, and France, as the top ski destination in the world is first on the list to benefit from this. Buying now, before prices soar once more, is a sensible option. So why not take a look at the ten properties we have selected below, and see if we can tempt you?
