Leading French property developer, MGM French Properties, is launching an exclusive new development in the family-friendly resort of Les Houches. Chalet Délys comprises ten luxurious apartments with fast links to the slopes and the varied pistes of the Chamonix valley. Available for outright purchase, each unit comes with extensive outdoor space, underground parking and a ski locker. The prices for the limited apartments at this development start at €340,000 for a two-bedroom home, ranging up to €635,000 for a four-bedroom home.
For families looking for a place to teach young children to ski, while still enjoying the challenging slopes of exclusive Chamonix, the resort of Les Houches is a great option. Located just six kilometres down the valley from the skiing capital, Les Houches offers similar stunning panoramas of the Chamonix valley. Les Houches maintains an authentic rustic feel, comprising traditional mountain hamlets and boasting a relaxed community atmosphere. Notably, central Chamonix is accessible in as little as 15 minutes via regular train and shuttle bus links, perfect for exploring other areas of the valley. Multi-zone ski passes are available which cover both resorts, with some giving access to sections of the Mont Blanc in Italy and Switzerland.
The Les Houches resort stretches across 55km of marked ski runs, varying from 950 to 1900 metres in altitude and showcasing the high alpine pastures and mountain forests nearby. There are several areas where beginners can learn to ski in a safe environment, while more advanced skiers are ably catered for with a variation of downhill pistes. Overall in difficulty rating, four per cent of slopes in the resort are green, 38 per cent are blue, 45 per cent are red and 13 per cent are black. Additionally, 10km of cross-country pistes are available. Les Houches also regularly plays host to international contests, including the Alpine Ski World Cup and the Telemark World Cup.
Not just a strong base for families who love the outdoors, Les Houches offers a wealth of other activities throughout both winter and summer. The resort also caters for snowboarding, telemarking, tobogganing, ice-skating, climbing and an adventure park. In the summer, hiking and paragliding are very popular. There is an abundance of restaurants serving Savoyard and international cuisine, including Les Vieilles Luges, Le Prarion and La Taniere. Les Houches is an eighty-minute drive from Geneva Airport, which operates regular flights to the UK and elsewhere.
Located just 200 metres from the Prarion Gondola, and within easy distance of the Bellevue ski lift, the Chalet Délys development offers excellent slope access for those who ski regularly. The apartments are all well-sized, with floorplates ranging from 60 sqm to 118 sqm. The outright purchase homes come unfurnished, but with fully-fitted kitchen and bathroom, allowing the perfect opportunity for the purchaser to put their personality into the interiors through their own choice of style and furniture. The large private balcony or terrace which comes with each home will offer fantastic views of the Mont-Blanc mountain range. MGM can also assist in recommending local property management companies.
As with all MGM developments, Chalet Délys has been designed using the highest quality materials, such as timber, stone and copper, as well as slate roof tiles, combining to create the charm and authenticity of a rustic mountain chalet. Each layout has been configured for maximum space and comfort.
Richard Deans, Sales Manager at MGM French Properties, comments,
“Outright purchase homes are rarely available in Les Houches, which is a firm favourite with families. It also makes a fantastic base and quieter option for those who are fans of central Chamonix. The relaxed atmosphere of Les Houches makes it a great authentic setting for a second home. I expect this development to be very popular, as it offers good value for the Chamonix valley, and quick access to the slopes.”
