Chamonix is the world capital of mountaineering, the scene of legendary deeds! It was back in 1786, that two local men, Paccard and Balmat, succeeded in climbing Mont-Blanc for the first time. From then on, the “Roof of Europe” has become the Holy Grail of climbs for mountaineers the world over, under the watchful eye of the famous Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix. Aiguille du Midi, Aiguille Verte, Dôme du Goûter, Grands Montets, Vallée Blanche – there are so many names that conjure up that special frisson and make the Mont Blanc range quite unique. It is right here that Les Jardins de l’Astoria will see the light of day.
This beautiful residence will consist of only 10 apartments and is ideally located in a wooded area behind the casino in the centre of Chamonix. The advantage of this location is that it offers peace and quiet, yet is close to the lively centre. The chalet will be built in the grand «Belle époque» style of architecture which Chamonix is so famous for. The world renowned skiing area of ‘Brévent / Flégère’ is only a short ride away by ski bus, alternatively, you can walk 5 minutes to the Savoy drag lift which then connects you to the Les Brévents gondola. Finding high quality new properties in any wellregarded alpine location is becoming increasingly difficult, let alone in one of the most famous. If you want to get the most from your property then this takes some beating with such easy access to Geneva, a 12-month season and solid investment potential.
