Just 55 minutes from Geneva, Servoz is the Chamonix valley’s hidden secret – a beautiful unspoilt French alpine village with lots of sunshine and breath-taking views of Mont Blanc. It’s easy to feel that you are in the remote French alps but it’s only a 10-minute drive to Chamonix centre.
Servoz has a handful of traditional restaurants and shops and you will find a warm and welcoming family-friendly atmosphere.
Visitors to Servoz feel like they have discovered the Chamonix Valley’s last remaining secret. It is however extremely well connected with regular trains running from Servoz all along the Chamonix valley with stops at all the main ski areas.
Indeed, the ski lifts in Les Houches are just 8 minutes away. In 15 minutes you can reach the skiing in Chamonix centre – Brevent / Flegere – or even St Gervais which is now covered on the same lift pass.
Servoz is a great summer spot with plenty of hiking trails to the Fiz mountain range starting from town. There is also the popular ‘Lac Vert’ – a stunning natural swimming lake surrounded by spruce trees that often reflects the view of Mont Blanc towering over the village. It makes a great place to unwind during a warm-summer day.
Property prices in Servoz are well below that of Chamonix itself at an average of just over 5000 euro / m2. That is however starting to change as canny property investors have begun to catch on to Servoz as a more affordable alternative to Chamonix in which to buy a French ski property.
Hameau de Reines is an exciting new development in the heart of Servoz which is set to become a landmark destination in the village. The development comprises three buildings of 27 apartments, as well as a new medical centre and two commercial units.
Built in traditional ‘Savoie style’ the building will make extensive use of locally sourced wood to ensure it blends effortlessly into its traditional surroundings. The apartments are orientated to maximise the views of the towering mountains that surround this pretty little village.
This is one of the first opportunities to purchase a new French ski property in to this beautiful alpine village.
Due to start construction in Spring 2019, the apartments are due to be delivered in early 2020.
The apartments range in size from 1-3 bedrooms and all include a private underground parking space and storage area. Prices start at just EUR 210,000 which is incredible value for this popular region of France.
