The lure of a mountain home is very appealing; enjoying the simple pleasures of being outdoors – skiing or snowboarding in winter; walking and cycling in summer; enjoying a barbeque with family and friends whilst watching the sun set behind the mountains or just lazing on a sun lounger reading a book. Whether you are looking to buy a mountain view property for you and your family or wanting to rent out the property during the holidays, mountain view property can be found throughout the world and in all shapes and sizes depending on your taste and budget.
If you have every dreamed of owning your own cosy ski chalet in the mountains and being able to hit the slopes whenever you want to and spend the summers exploring everything that the Alpine region has to offer then investing in your own ski chalet is an attractive proposition.
Switzerland has some of the most beautifully located mountain view property although this does tend to be at the top end of the price range. For example, a spacious chalet 15 minutes outside of Gstaad built in the traditional Alpine style and with a 180 degree panoramic mountain view has a 1.3 million EUR price tag. If modern and luxurious apartments complete with all modern facilities are more appealing then apartments with mountain views in Les Menuires and Le Grand Bornand all have four-star facilities including an indoor pool, fitness suite, gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam rooms, as well as a beauty centre with a variety of massages and treatments on offer.
The Italian Aosta Valley is the smallest and least densely populated of all of Italy’s 20 regions. However, it is very popular with second-home buyers, which means that if you’re interested in a mountain view property in the Italian Alps then as with all property in the Alpine region, you are assured of superb rental potential. Boasting world-renowned ski resorts such as Courmayeur and Breuil-Cervinia plus undiscovered gems as La Thuile and Cervinia and flanked by the two Alpine giants - the Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn, the valley offers superb skiing and summer hiking opportunities. In addition one-sixth of its surface area is made up of the Gran Paradiso National Park, Italy’s first national park and bestowed to the nation in 1922 by King Victor Emmanuel II.
The French Alps offers idyllic mountain scenery and is proving to be more and more popular with people wanting to buy property in France. Forests, rivers, lakes and gorges make it a haven for the more adventurous sports enthusiasts, both during the summer and winter. Property prices vary within the region with those in the Haute-Savoie and in chic resorts such as Annecy and Megeve being high due to the strong all year round rental market; a spacious and luxurious chalet in the centre of Megeve, for example can cost upwards of 5 million EUR although prices elsewhere in the region such as in the charming Savoyard village of Verchaix are in the region of 300,000 EUR - 450,000 EUR for traditional chalets.
The Austrian Alps are also worth considering, particularly the Salzkammergut – a breathtaking region of amazing lakes and mountains where mountain view property ranges from elegant country houses to lakeside modern villas and chic apartments.
Mallorca is a land of contrasts – soaring mountains and pine forests, beautiful white, sandy beaches and sheltered coves make this Balearic island a jewel in the Mediterranean. The northern mountains are a haven for those looking for a mountain view property with solitude and peace. A six bedroom country home in a traditional village situated up in the mountains such as the historic settlement of Lluc, will easily fetch in the region of 2.5m EUR.
Mountain view property hold its value extremely well regardless of downturns in the economy or the wider marketplace and also offer perennially strong holiday rental prospects. Whether an elegantly traditional wooden ski chalet in the Italian Aosta valley or a grand and luxurious villa set in the northern mountains of Mallorca, mountain view property continues to be extremely popular and is an exceptionally good investment.
