Reasons to Invest in an Apartment in Chamonix
There are many reasons to invest in an apartment in Chamonix:
With its sporting culture and excellent transport links, the resort is a good choice for a second home in a year-round destination that can be enjoyed in any season
The attractiveness of the mountains as a place to relax and recharge is reinforcing the rental trend observed in recent years
This famous mountain sports resort hosts international competitions in summer and winter alike, attracting a cosmopolitan clientele. This stimulates, in parallel with leisure activities, the range of high-end services on offer such as shops, wellness facilities, fine dining restaurants and the casino.
The Trend Towards Chalet Apartments with Luxury Services
New developments in the Chamonix Valley feature large volumes, a choice of high-quality materials, and refined interior design, with large living rooms, fully-equipped American kitchens, and loft-style bedrooms. Taking inspiration from small residences, property developers are transforming large chalets into luxury one, two and three bedrooms apartments. These properties come with wellness and fitness facilities, such as Jacuzzis, saunas, hammams, massage rooms, and gyms, ideal for unwinding after a day's skiing. Premium services on offer include catering, cleaning, linen supply, dedicated drivers, and private instructors.
The Guide to Reclaiming the VAT on Your New Apartment
In Chamonix, as elsewhere in the French Alps, buyers benefit from a very favourable financial environment. Interest rates are low and buyers are encouraged to invest in new properties thanks to generous tax incentives.
If they undertake to offer their newly-acquired second home on a furnished and serviced rental basis, investors are eligible for a VAT refund. Equal to 20% of the purchase price, this allowance can help to increase rental profitability, whilst still allowing owners to use their properties during their desired weeks.
