Andermatt Apartment For Sale
Andermatt, known as the ‘crossroads of Switzerland’ due to its central location at the crossing of the alpine passes that divide the country, is one of the oldest and most picturesque of the alpine ski resorts. The village is located in the Ursern Valley, situated high in the Adula Alps, surrounded by snowy peaks and breathtaking ski slopes in winter, and peaceful alpine pastures and forest in the summer.
The unique location of the village, at the heart of the crossing of the 4 passes of Oberalp, St Gotthard, Furka and Göschenertal gave rise to its historical importance as an important coach stop, and the last resort before the St. Gotthard Pass. In the 19th century, the village boomed into a popular spa town, attracting Europe’s wealthy, who in turn invested in building great hotels, public buildings, and monuments. With the advent of the railways, and especially the alpine railway tunnel, the town fell into decline, and today it is possible to buy an Andermatt apartment for sale in one of these grand buildings from the boom years, now tastefully converted into beautiful residential apartments. In recent years, however, Andermatt’s charm and beauty has been rediscovered by the more discerning skier that craves the peace (and the lower prices!) of a less regimented ski-resort, but without compromising on the facilities. This revival means that not only is an Andermatt apartment for sale an opportunity to buy in a truly unique location, but it is also a fantastic investment, whether as a second home or for letting potential before this town, once more, reaches the notice of the wider public consciousness.
Today an Andermatt apartment for sale is located in one of Switzerland’s best kept skiing secrets. The off-piste opportunities are virtually limitless, with slopes covered in untouched fresh snowfall, often completely undiscovered by other skiers. Only a short distance from the village, the sense of freedom and isolation is unparalleled in other alpine resorts, and leaves owners of an Andermatt apartment for sale free to be at one with nature and wholly engage with the challenge of the mountains. The high altitude of the village ensures that snowfall is regular, with good coverage all season, on or off-piste. The village also has a snow park and half-pipe for dedicated boarders.
Andermatt is largely about the skiing opportunities, which are faultless, and the picturesque traditional charm of the village, largely unspoiled as it is by en masse tourism. An Andermatt apartment for sale is, however, not the only way to buy in the town. The old town consists largely of cobblestoned, winding roads, lined with traditional wooden chalets, which are quite beautiful, even without the snowy panorama of the mountain peaks and valleys. While there is a gym and ice rink, and a wide selection of restaurants and bars, these are often contained within hotels, maintaining the peace and charm of a traditional alpine town.
Getting to your Andermatt apartment for sale is relatively straightforward, with Zurich airport serving most international destinations, including the UK. From here, Andermatt is a straightforward journey on the economical and efficient Swiss trains. Milan airport is also easily accessible on the railway network.
