Running a business in the Alps

For many people the thought of running a ski chalet in the French Alps is the ultimate job; a tantalising dream of being able to live and work in a beautiful part of the world and enjoy the surroundings throughout the whole ski and summer seasons.

In recent years this dream has become a reality for many British ex-pats and there is a thriving industry of privately-owned chalets and rental properties out there catering for tourists throughout the winter and summer months. Occasionally these properties come up for sale; mostly due to changes in personal circumstances or the pursuit of new and exciting projects in the local area. Each ski chalets for sale france is an exciting opportunity for someone to take over the reins and make the move to France; to be self-employed, financially independent and to make the most of the fabulous quality of life in the mountains.

After a quieter winter buying season British buyers have recently started to return to the area in higher numbers and property prices have stabilised. If you are in the market for a ski chalet to run for guests this is an excellent time to snap one up, before prices start to rise.

We have a selection of properties that are either currently being operated as successful chalet businesses or that have been built with this purpose in mind. As a starting point have a look at the properties below in the Portes du Soleil area of the region. As well as two very spacious chalets which offer a huge amount of accommodation, including private quarters for the chalet hosts and at a reasonable price, we have a fabulous newly constructed property that was built with holiday guests in mind in central Morzine.
