This charming three-bedroom ski apartment for sale in Samoens enjoys a calm setting in the village centre just steps away from amenities and a two-minute drive from the Grand Massif Express ski lift.
Part of a boutique collection of 11 ski properties, this apartment of 84 sqm is located on the second floor of a beautiful chalet-style building. This residence features three spacious bedrooms, one of which also benefits from an en-suite bathroom. There is also a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom and an open-plan living and dining area of 31 sqm which opens up to a sunny south-facing balcony of 13 sqm.
Given its sought-after central location, traditional architecture and unobstructed valley views, this apartment is well-priced for the resort at E6,200 per sqm. This property also represents excellent value when compared to the French Alps as a whole as similar properties in other dual-season resorts, like Les Gets or Chatel, can command up to E13,000 per sqm.
As a new-build property, not only does this apartment have lower notary fees of 2.5% (existing properties incur higher fees of 7%), but future owners can apply for a 20% VAT rebate on the property price. For this apartment, that equates to a saving of E96,166.
Samoens is part of the Grand Massif ski domain, the fifth-largest ski domain in the French Alps, and enjoys access to 265km of groomed pistes. Whilst the slopes here predominantly cater to beginners and intermediates, there are some more technical runs, such as Aigle Noire, to challenge seasoned skiers.
Samoens is thought to be one of the most beautiful villages in the French Alps, earning it the prestigious 'ville fleurie' label. A true year-round resort, Samoens offers a wide range of activities in the summer too such as cycling, hiking and exploring the impressive Jaysinia botanical garden.
