The resort of Les Deux Alpes is a one hour drive from Grenoble Airport and is the largest ski resort in the Dauphine region, being the second oldest in the whole of France after Chamonix.
Often called L2A, it has a reputation for guaranteed quality snow and boasts an all year round attraction for visitors.
The neighbouring mountain villages of Venosc and Mont de Lans give rise to the name of the resort itself, which was originally founded in 1925 after access by road became available.
The Diable Gondola opened in 1956 and the issuing of the first ski passes led to Les Deux Alpes being recognised as a ski resort.
At an altitude of 1,650 metres and with 200 kilometres of south facing slopes that are suitable for all levels of skiers and snowboarders, Les Deux Alpes also boasts the biggest skiable glacier in Europe.
The resort is also the location for a development of 29 apartments called Chalet Kayla, which optimises the changing face of new Ski properties.
Ranging in size from one bedrooms priced at €240,000 to three bedroom homes at €500,000, the more traditional rustic style of interiors and fittings are being left behind with an emphasis on more modern and contemporary styles.
This means that although traditional materials like wood, stone and granite still feature heavily in the construction, finishes entail stone and larch parquet floorings, whilst old style timber kitchens are replaced with sleek modern lines featuring granite worktops.
With a location that boasts ski lifts just 100 metres away and similar convenience for shops, restaurants and even an ice rink, the Chalet Kayla development is a clear indication of where things are heading in new build ski properties.
Investing in ski properties is something that interests many people looking for their own winter sports retreat as well as those interested in rental yield returns.
