This exclusive brand new-build real estate project the Helium in Chamonix is a rare opportunity to own a new-build ski apartment in the centre of Chamonix. Only a few apartments make up this new project and give it a real boutique feel which is indeed rare in Chamonix these days, especially so close to the centre. See our new-build projects in Chamonix here.
Investment opportunity at the Helium | Chamonix (see location here)
As a new-build property, prospective owners will benefit from reduced notary fees of 2-2.5% and will also have the opportunity to apply for a VAT rebate if they decide to rent out their apartment when they are not using it. At the Helium in Chamonix, it is possible to recover between €160,000 and €341,666 in VAT. This is certainly not a small saving.
Chamonix a world mountaineering capital worldwide
Chamonix is a genuine year-round town which means that you can generate rental income in the summer months as well as during the ski season (and even in-between). From golf to hiking, there is plenty to do in the warmer months and, according to the tourism office, the number of overnight stays in the summer has grown by 100,000 between 2018 and 2019.
Greeting skiers since 1906, Chamonix is one of the most venerable ski resorts in the French Alps as well as the host of the first winter Olympics. Often the go-to destination for advanced skiers, Chamonix boasts 119 slopes. Whilst skiing is certainly the main draw, Chamonix has plenty to offer away from the slopes, such as ice skating, golf and hiking with 350km of marked trails to explore. The village is home to a fabulous selection of bars and restaurants, including the Albert 1er which has been awarded 2 Michelin Stars.
Careful to retain its rustic charm, Chamonix has grown organically over the years and is a Flocon Vert resort thanks to its commitment to sustainability.
Helium is a new-build project comprising six south-facing apartments with between two and five bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms. Future owners have the option to personalise the finishes. All properties benefit from a balcony, garden or terrace and enjoy stunning views of the Mont Blanc mountain range.
