OU PROBABLY

know that French ski

resorts are streets

ahead of any others

in the world but

you may not be so

aware that each has a unique

personality.

At the time of writing we

have 37 agents in our Alps

team, with a portfolio of well

over 1,000 properties. This figure

may well have risen by now

as we are recruiting new agents

to cope with the demand from

our international buyers.

Each of these agents live

and work in France and know

their local property market intimately.

They also know the best

restaurants, off-piste runs and

hiking trails too. Another common denominator is that they

all swear blind that their resort

has a feeling like no other.

Take the Three Valleys for

instance, this is actually eight

different resorts; Courcheval is

surrounded by forests, with the

surrounding stone and wooden

chalets lit up in the evening

by the towns twinkling lights.

It also has some excellent

nursery slopes making it ideal

The greatest ski resorts, most dramatic mountain passes

and the clearest blue lakes - it can only be the French Alps

for families and beginners.

Meribel has a reputation for

offering championship skiing

and recently hosted the World

Cup. Of course when you attract

the superstars of the ski world

you have to be able to accommodate them when they

want

to party and Meribel won't

let you down. It couldn't be a

bigger contrast to the charming,

cosy and romantic St Martin-de-

Belleville which is an authentic

Savoyard village with narrow

streets and even a traditional

clock tower.
