Where could you choose for your brand new ski apartment?

Samoens is rich in mediaeval charm

As ski resorts begin tentative steps towards reopening, and rumours of a busy winter season begin to emerge, thoughts are turning towards taking the plunge into owning your own home. Social distancing measures are likely to be with us for a while and having your own space to relax and socialise means you can escape to mountains without the worry of crowded bars and busy hotels.

Fabulous new developments

We’ve a huge range of brand new developments in all types of resorts, from those that need no introduction like Val d’Isere and Courchevel, as well as less obvious spots that offer something a little different, which is where I thought we’d look today.

Mountain views and warm interiors make Residence Alexanne a perfect retreat


Samoens is a bit of a gem. It appears on France’s ville fleurie, so it ranks as on of the country’s most beautiful towns. As well as being a wonderfully preserved medieval village, Samoens just happens to have had €25 million investment in new lifts. The combination of superb high speed gondola link to le Grand Massif ski area, as well as warm summers thanks to the low altitude mixed with more than a dash of Savoyard charm make Samoens a fabulous dual season resort and irresistible for investors.

New development in Samoens

Residence Alexanne is a gorgeous new development from MGM, just steps from the gondola and rich with features that make an investor sing – from stunning mountain views to practical touches like ski lockers and private parking. There’s plenty of space to relax and enjoy drinks or dinner, as well as access to hotel style wellness facilities. The residence is fully managed and will have high appeal to the rental market as well as being a great holiday home.
