Property DescriptionThe Land… This is the sale of a piece of land 485 m2 of which 97 m2 footprint could be used for a beautiful chalet (located in Zone Blue B36). The Area: La Salle Les Alpes is one of the main villages in the Serre Chevalier Valley ski domain. It lies in the middle of the huge larch forest that shelters the lower slopes of this relatively unknown ski-resort which has over 250 kms of pistes making it the 4th largest in France. The village has maintained a mountain charm that is felt in the ancient architecture and the friendliness of the local community. The valley is also a popular summer destination, attracting white water junkies, downhill mountain bikers and of course the road bike fanatics who come here to challenge themselves against the numerous cols made famous by the Tour de France. One of the many advantages of owning a property in this area is the proximity to Briançon, at the foot of the valley. This is the highest town in France and has everything one would expect to find in any other town including supermarkets, sports facilities, transport services and schools. Geographically speaking, the area is ideally situated for visiting nearby Italy and the south coast. The nearest airports are Turin (1hr40) and Grenoble (2hr) and train services come directly into town as well as nearby Oulx.
Serre Chevalier Ski Area
This “jewel in the crown” is one of the best kept secrets in the southern alps. Here the high tree line coupled with amazing off piste make it an all-round ski paradise. Unlike many other mountain resorts, The Serre Chevalier Valley is made up of many villages and hamlets as well as the town of Briancon, the highest town in France.
Monetier Les Bains, the highest of the villages ,has a typical alpine atmosphere as well as having the beautiful open air spa baths. Here you can relax after a hard days ski and enjoy the magnificent views of the hanging glacier and snow capped peaks.
Serre Chevalier isn't a purpose built resort and as such is an ideal place to consider having an alpine home with all of the facilities associated with normal living – transport, education and shops. At the same time this amazing resort is only a few kms away from hidden valleys, high mountain pastures and the vast Ecrin national park.
Transport to Serre Chevalier is much easier than before with regular flights to both Grenoble and Turin airports.
