Why Invest in the Megève Property Market?
Here are the most favourable reasons to invest in Megève real estate;
Affordable Market Prices
At €13,700 per square metre, prime residential prices in Megève are nearly half of those in Courchevel, where the average cost is €26,000 per square metre. The resort is also cheaper than Val d’Isère, Méribel and Méribel Village. With an average time of 2 months to complete the process, this also proves the swift efficiency of the market.
Upmarket Luxury Living in Megève
The bouji Megève resort offers Michelin Star restaurants, upmarket hotels, chic boutique shops, stylish bars for the après-ski scene whilst keeping tradition alive with horse-driven carriages! While you may think this upmarket lifestyle is a little flashy, Megève also maintains an air of discretion and is the ideal resort to invest in French property.
Ski and Snowboard Facilities
When it comes to living up to its prestigious reputation, Megève provides 185 runs and 400 kilometres of pistes during ski season. Its altitude at 1,100 metres and breathtaking position also makes it the perfect sunspot. Megeve taps into the ski area known as Domain Evasion Mont Blanc that it shares with other places like Monts d’ Arbois, St-Gervais-Les-Bains, and Combloux ski resort.
This French ski resort has a substantial ski area with 325km of pistes, with a ski school and nursery slopes for beginners, but with most slopes suited to intermediates. Especially those who enjoy long, cruising tree-lined runs with panoramic mountain views. With some of the best powder in the Alps, there is also some excellent off-piste skiing on offer.
Dual Resort Appeal
Megève is a dual season resort. The many residents living here year-round bring plenty of shops, bars and restaurants that are open almost 365 days a year.
Megève also recognises the need to provide entertainment and relaxation off the slopes, and this is done through many activities, most notably, the stunning 18-hole Mont d'Arbois golf course. Overlooking the resort and set at 1320 metres, the course is one of the oldest in the Alps and hosts amateur and professional competitions.
For non-golfers, you can enjoy breathtaking views over 150km of marked hiking trails and 80km of biking trails, all the while surrounded by stunning Alpine scenery. There is plenty to keep all ages entertained, including cable cars, dog sledging, ballooning, climbing, ice skating, para-gliding, mountain biking, white water rafting and canyoning. Megeve’s dedication to both off-piste and summer activities makes it a year-round haven.
An Impressive Property Portfolio
Megève is known for its stunning individual chalets and potential buyers have the choice between investing in a new development or opting for a Savoyard chalet combining luxury, spaciousness and the ultimate in comfort.
Much of Megève’s charm lies in the original architecture, as seen in its vast range of apartments and chalets on the market. Outskirt areas feature ski chalets, while apartments in the village centre are on the doorstep of all amenities. Traditionally, a French home in the Alps always had space on the bottom floor so that herds had somewhere to shelter, and many luxury chalets on the market still incorporate spacious living rooms that buyers in a high-profile market desire.
Naturally, as in most ski property markets, the ski-in ski-out chalets are the most sought after, and Megève delivers that with style. Other prime features in new build luxury ski chalets include:
- Log fire
- Steam room
- Outdoor hot tub
- Stylish furnishings
