Located just a short 15-minute drive from the A40 motorway and approximately one hour from Geneva Airport, Les Gets is considered a must-see ski destination and a firm favourite with holidaymakers from the UK. It is quietly nestled within the Portes du Soleil ski area with access to 650km of pistes and conveniently linked to 11 other ski villages. We have handpicked Kamet Chalets as one of the most exciting investment opportunities within this charming resort.
This outstanding new development sits in the heart of the village, a short distance from the ski lifts as well as the shops, restaurants and bars. Each of the 17 semi-detached chalets has an interior layout ranging from 98 – 150 sqm with 4 to 5 en-suite bedrooms and exceptional views of the mountains, forest and ski slopes. The architecture is typically Savoyard in style using traditional elements of locally sourced wood and stone while in contrast, the interior finishes are contemporary, elegant and refreshing. Key features include private storage cellars, underground parking as well as a private terrace and balconies from which to enjoy the breathtaking views.
A true family-friendly resort, Les Gets is full of authentic Alpine charm. In addition to skiing, winter activities include snowshoeing, tobogganing, cross country tracks, paragliding, ice-skating on the attractive village ice-rink and even ten-pin bowling. The ski slopes vary in their level of difficulty from beginner right up to advanced with 9 green slopes, 26 blue, 28 red and 9 black as well as 14 draglifts, 27 chairlifts, 3 gondolas and 5 mountain lifts for those who enjoy taking in the spectacular scenery on their long walks in the summertime. As one of the few alpine dual-season resorts, Les Getss summertime activities are just as important as their winter counterparts and there is no shortage of things to do, with an 18-hole golf course, 400 km of mountain biking trails, hiking trails and the hugely popular summer fetes and festivals. The village centre is fairly pedestrianised making shopping and dining out a pleasant experience. There is also a free shuttle service that runs year-round within the village and surrounds allowing guests to explore and discover the resort as a whole.
Owners looking to rent their apartments when not staying there can choose to take advantage of new Para Hotelier tax incentives. This means that they will receive a 20% of the purchase price as a tax rebate from the French government, and there is no income tax on the rental income for up to 30 years. Combined with 85% mortgages and low-interest rates (e.g. 0.90% Fixed for 15 years, or 1.10% Fixed for 20 years) that can be fixed for up to 25 years, make this a compelling proposition.
