Nationalities: are the French still the most numerous?
Yes, they still represent the most frequent buyers in the market, but about half of the investors are foreign buyers. The French share varies between 45% in a resort like Courchevel, to 60% in Megeve. Then there are the British, followed by other nationalities, like the Russians, the Swiss or the Dutch. Depending on the resort, the breakdown may vary however: the British, for example, are more numerous than the French in Val d'Isere, and the Russians are especially present in Courchevel and Meribel.
