Luxury Apartments in a traditional Swiss mountain village, part of the famous “Portes du Soleil” ski area.
This ground breaking development on the “Rives Reines” domain next to the Palladium in Champéry has been created to cater for the more discerning tourist looking for high quality accommodation near first class facilities and with easy access to the ski pistes. The Lodge – Champéry is designed for investors looking for some own- use and to make available the property to the mountain holiday market.
The location is ideal with the main cable-car whisking skiers up to 2200m only a 2 minute flat walk away (never to be underestimated when in ski boots or with children!), the Palladium sports centre next door (with pools, gym, ice rink and restaurant), the village centre a 4 minute walk away (with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops) and the train station next to the cable-car.
The apartments are very spacious 2 and 3 bedroom with large open-plan living and kitchen and hotel style bathrooms. All apartments have extensive balconies or terraces with the ground floor opening up onto large decks and grass and landscaped gardens. There is secure, underground parking and all facilities to store skis and equipment and dry boots; even an outdoor bike-washing station for the summer mountain biking market.
Each apartment is planned for dual own-use and rental with attention to layout and facilities and the final furnishings and equipping will be offered as part of the service. Alpine Lifestyle Partners (www.alplifestyle.com) are specialists in the market and are advising the promoters, Alpine Investments SA on setting up a fully managed rental programme for the apartments to cover the winter and growing summer markets.
The Lodge – Champéry will set the next level for quality accommodation available in Champéry.
The Lodge apartments are still available for foreign buyers (non Swiss-based) and are not subject to the 2007 permit problems in some ski stations!
