Wish you were here…Chamonix

  With the weather getting ever colder and the nights drawing in, this is the perfect time to be inspired to own that idyllic alpine property. With its reputation for being one of the best skiing destinations in the world, Chamonix, is the ideal location for a holiday home and here is one of the best properties that it has to offer. Situated in the north-west of the French Alps, Chamonix is extremely close to the borders with Switzerland and Italy and is only an hour’s drive from the nearest international airport, Geneva. Described by Lonely Planet as the place ‘where serious alpine action kicks in’, the resort offers all the winter sports extreme enough for even the most well-seasoned of adrenaline junkies. However, there are also plenty of offerings for those looking for less extreme pursuits, including golf during the summer. One of the best properties currently on the market in Chamonix is Chalet des Praz, an eight bedroom chalet with a one bedroom individual apartment. The traditional chalet was built in 1946 and oozes the type of charm you would want for cosy nights by the open fireplaces after a day on the slopes, although with the incredible views from south facing terrace overlooking the Mont Blanc Valley it may be hard to leave this beautiful home in the first place! The property offers all the luxury you would want from a holiday home with a hot tub and steam room along with all the necessities such as a boot room for your skiing gear. It is also just a short walk from the centre of Chamonix and is on the ski bus route so whether you are heading to the pistes or the local restaurants this property is ideally located for all your needs. Chalet des Praz is currently owned by a British couple who rent the chalet as catered accommodation, so for those looking to invest, this could be an excellent opportunity. Each of the bedrooms has en-suite facilities and the additional separate apartment offers further rental opportunities. At the moment the rentals achieve between £10,000-16,000 per week. The access to the property is also just off a road that is maintained by the local authorities so whether you are looking to use the chalet as a holiday home for your exclusive use or for holiday rentals you won’t have to worry about being confronted by feet of snow blocking your access upon your arrival. Head of Winkworth’s international department, Roddy Aris says “ We are very excited to be promoting Chalet des Praz. It is the complete package, it has everything and more that serious buyers look for in an Alpine home and we would certainly recommend early viewings to any interested parties. ”
