Chamonix Property for Sale

What about real estate properties in Chamonix for sale? With a permanent population of 14,000 Chamonix’s property market is diverse. The valley has long been popular with British and Scandinavian buyers and the perennially strong Swiss Franc draws Geneva-based buyers, from 3 bedroom ground floor apartments in the centre to luxury ski chalets close to the golf course in Les Praz or even renovated farmhouses with first floor mountain facing balconies with beautiful views. Massive multi-year investment in infrastructure from the Compagnie du Mont Blanc including the Montenvers site and Plan Praz are factors behind two years of consecutive 5% p.a increase in property prices which is why many consider investment opportunities in Chamonix.

If Alpine property for sale in the Chamonix area is not of interest, consider consider properties nearby in the Pays de Mont Blanc.
