Summer in the Alps – the Kitzbüheler Alps

#supportourskiresorts : a new initiative from Alpine Property intelligence.

The coronavirus knows no boundaries, it has been a tragedy of the likes we have never seen, nor wish to ever see again. As the lock-downs start to ease, we hope it is possible that those who wish to return to the Alps again may do so, perhaps in the summer.

We know the Alps are becoming an ever more popular summer destination, this will surely increase. Why sit on a crowded beach when you have vast spaces, clean air, lots of sunshine and beautiful scenery? The benefits for property owners are clear, either to use it yourself, or to increase rental income. Prospective buyers may have their first opportunity for visits over the summer months.

APi has written a little about summer in the Alps, there is a lot more to write about. The agents APi is partnered with live and work in the resorts, they know the place and local property market better than anyone. We are focusing on some of the finest resorts in the French, Swiss and Austrian Alps.
