Let it snow! Abundant snowfall in French ski resorts leads to increase in property enquiries for French property developer

After what had been a nerve-wracking start to the ski season back in December last year, where ski slopes laid bare, snow, and lots of it, has finally fallen. Sustained heavy snowfall blanketed French ski slopes making the Christmas and New Year season far busier than expected, leading to a 75% occupancy rate across Alpine resorts according to market analyst company Protourisme.

Indeed, this comes as welcomed news among French property investors whose confidence in the market has risen and will continue to rise thanks to historical snowfall figures highlighting that in general across much of the Alps, four times the average snowfall has fallen for mid-January alone.

Charlie Williams, Business Development Manager of France’s leading eco-friendly leaseback property developer, Terresens, which has experienced a 25% increase in enquiry levels thanks to the recent snow conditions in France comments,

“Just this morning I had a call from my mother who is enjoying a week´s sejour in Chatel. The Portes du Soleil resorts are all busy, the air is cold, the skies are blue and the snow is apparently the best she´s ever known in her long skiing career. Property investor leads are also well up on the norm by some 25% and properties in prime snow sure locations in the French Alps remain a seriously investable, income-generating asset in uncertain economic times. ”

As one of the largest and most popular ski resorts in the world, La Plagne in the French Alps is one such ski location that is experiencing perfect ski conditions. Currently, enjoying glorious sunshine and clear skies, Le Centaure in Belle Plagne, a beautiful character resort situated in an ideal location in the heart of the French Alps in the Savoie, which makes use of La Plagne’s snow drenched ski slopes will certainly be viewed as an attractive option for potential property investors this ski season.

While the development affords a range of luxurious facilities dedicated to wellness and relaxation including an indoor heated swimming pool, massage room and Turkish bath, Le Centure’s position, nestled between forest and mountain pastures with splendid views of snow covered slopes provides a breath-taking panorama.
