February 2017: Leading French property developer, MGM, has launched the ultimate ski-in-ski-out development in Tignes 1800. Comprising 63 luxury leaseback apartments, Le Lodge des Neiges (‘The Snow Lodge’), features an indoor swimming pool, children’s paddling pool, sauna, steam room, hammam, whirlpools and private gymnasium.
Purchasers at the four-star complex will have unrivalled access to an eight-seat gondola, which has been installed directly below the development, reaching the slopes of Espace Killy in a matter of minutes. Prices at Le Lodge des Neiges range from €250,000 for a one-bedroom apartment to €650,000 for a four-bedroom apartment.
The apartments have been designed using the highest quality materials, such as timber, stone and copper, as well as slate roof tiles, combining to create the charm and authenticity of a rustic mountain chalet.
Each apartment comes fully-furnished with thoughtful interiors; warm colours complement neutral tones and combine with spacious floorplates to create a homely environment to relax in after an action-packed day on the slopes. Kitchens are fully-fitted, with finely-crafted granite worktops and other facilities, including a washing machine, dishwasher, and fridge-freezer. Apartments also boast floor-to-ceiling French windows and large balconies to take in the stunning Alpine views. Le Lodge des Neiges also benefits from a spectacular 1,000m² spa and recreational facility, which includes swimming pool, gymnasium, full spa facilities and treatment rooms featuring the most up-to-date equipment.
Richard Deans, Sales Manager at MGM, comments, “Le Lodge des Neiges will be a game-changer for the Tignes region. It’s a spectacular collection of apartments, with luxury finishes and a rustic décor, providing the ultimate ski-in ski-out apartments. Positioned close to some of the best slopes in the Alps, we envisage these selling to families, couples and individuals that are keen skiers.”
Le Lodge des Neiges offers the ultimate lifestyle for those who opt to purchase here, located a stone’s throw away from a recently-opened, state of the art cable car, which can take eight people at a time to Espace Killy. Only minutes away, this is a great location to indulge in a skiing holiday without the hassle of travelling long distances to a ski lift.
Named after famous French skier, Jean-Claude Killy, the Espace Killy resort is located in the Tarentaise Valley, Savoie. The 300km of pistes includes 44km of cross-country area, 22 green runs, 61 blues, 46 reds and 25 blacks, giving an enormous range for skiers who want to experience the variety of this fantastic resort.
Tignes 1800 is a relatively new resort, having only opened its doors in 2013, but has been exceptionally popular with families, providing all the benefits of larger resorts, combined with a more tranquil atmosphere in which to enjoy quality time. It also enjoys close proximity to central Tignes and other larger resorts for those seeking après-ski and other nightlife. Lyon and Geneva airports are both under a 2.5 hour drive away, with quick links to airports across the UK.
The apartments at Le Lodge des Neiges are available as leaseback, guaranteeing rental income to the buyer, on a variety of usage schemes. Buying a four-bed property with access during blank periods only can create an annual income of up to €13,000, whilst even buyers of a one-bed property with six weeks’ rental use can expect to earn €3,500 each year. The development also allows for a high degree of flexibility, so owners can trade in weeks for use in some other CGH resorts across the French Alps, free of charge.
