HE TERM "JOIE DE

VIVRE" COULD HAVE

been coined just for

us.  We lay claim to

the finest ski resorts,

the most dramatic

mountain passes and the most

invigorating cycle paths in

Europe.

If you are reading this

then you're probably already a

convert to the region.  What sets

us apart though is our depth

of local knowledge - we have

38 agents on the ground and

each will be able to explain the

bespoke culture and intricacies

of their particular "patch". Want

someone to point you towards

the best off-piste runs or speak

knowledgeably about local

schools, markets, shopping or

restaurants?  If so then you've

come to the right place.  If

you're looking to buy property

in the Alps then it's even more

important than usual to do so

through a local expert who

lives, works and breathes the

area.

The French Alps are more

than just winter ski resorts

though.  Some of our cities are

simply stunning places to live

and visit. Wander around the

old town in Annecy or get your

fill of shopping, wining and

dining in Lyon and you will see

what I mean.  Our team has traditionally sold property

in the

famous ski resorts but we are

seeing strong demand from a

different type of buyer - someone looking to live

by (or close

to) one of our beautiful lakes,

or those looking for a more

urban lifestyle where access to

the slopes is just a bonus.

We're also seeing a 'year

round' appetite for the region.

France hosts the most famous

bike race in the world and you'll

find visitors from all round

the world racing up our "cols"

throughout the summer (I even

don the lycra myself from time

to time).  This makes the area attractive

for those looking to buy

gîtes or a B&B to supplement

retirement income.

If you're looking for something really

different then head

a little west and the Auvergne

offers terrific value for money.

The terrain is spectacular and,

again, it suits those with an outdoor temperament.

You'll find

skiing, hiking, biking and much

more to keep you occupied and

this is rural France at its very

best.

With financing still at an

all time low there really hasn't

been a better time to buy in the

Alps. My colleagues and I would

relish the opportunity to see

you face to face and explain

how you could rediscover your

own Joie de Vivre!
