Erna Low Property is delighted to announce the release of thirteen exclusive freehold apartments within three traditional Savoyard style chalet buildings in Courchevel 1650. Les Chalets de la Saulire will be completed to the high and chic standard that skiers have come to expect of the elite resort of Courchevel. The apartments will enjoy the buzzing atmosphere of the village and are just a free bus ride away from the other 3 Courchevel villages of 1300, 1550 and 1850.
Les Chalets de la Saulire will each house either 3, 4 or 5 apartments which will all be finished to an exemplary standard with pine and stone walls and 'lauze' tiled roofs. In addition oak parquet flooring, heated ski storage, grand fire places and garages are all included. The buildings have been designed with the valley side view in mind and so will have large windows looking out over the Vanoise Mountains.
Courchevel 1850's smaller sister, the village of Courchevel 1650, is still a lively and self sufficient resort. It also offers great après-ski action with a good selection of lively bars, restaurants and even a cinema. The resort has a fabulous sunny position as it enjoys a great south-facing position. The village is the prettiest in Courchevel and still very much maintains its traditional Savoyard style. In addition the resort is only a 10 minute gondola ride to 1850's skiing area.
Geneva is 149km away, Chambery 110km and Lyon Saint-Exupery 187km. For rail access, Moutiers is 24km with transfer by bus or taxi. Courchevel also has its own altiport for helicopter transfers.
Prices for the apartments at Les Chalets de la Saulire range between €695,000 and €1,545,000. The apartments, which are unfurnished, range in size from 57.87m2 and 108.54m2.
Occupying prime position within the wonderful Three Valleys and accessing some of the most extensive and varied skiing in the area, Courchevel is unquestionably the queen bee of the Three Valleys.
Joanna Yellowlees-Bound CEO of Erna Low says 'Courchevel still maintains its position as probably the most exclusive and sought after ski resort in the world. The resort has shown absolute resilience to any economic downturn and is still commanding near to Euro 12,000 per msq. Courchevel is unique and on the rare occasions that property comes up for sale, they are usually sold before hitting the open market. The Chalets de la Saulire offers a rare chance to own in this ever popular resort which is defying the odds and shows no sign of slowdown or negative growth.'
