A pool on the piste

The appeal of a swim or a warm soak after a winter afternoon skiing on the piste means that heated indoor pools come as standard with the leaseback apartments available to buy in the r�sidences de tourisme built by MGM French properties in the French Alps.

Many of them, like Le Chalet de Flambeau in Val Cenis in the Haute-Maurienne region, have year-round appeal as holiday homes.

In addition to an indoor pool with a glazed roof, property owners at Le Chalet de Flambeau – as with in other MGM r�sidences – have use of four-star facilities which include a fitness suite, gym, sauna, jacuzzi and steam rooms, as well as an OdesCimes spa with a variety of massages and treatments on offer.

At Le Centaure, MGM’s r�sidence de tourisme nearing completion in the purpose-built ski resort of Flaine, apartments come with use of a 25 metre x 10 metre indoor swimming pool – and a smaller children’s pool – with dramatic floor-to-ceiling views of a nearby mountain waterfall.

Some of MGM’s developments, in which apartments are offered for outright purchase, also come with pools. Typical is Le Chalet des Oursons in Crest-Voland Cohennoz, a small Savoyard village tucked away in the Beaufortain Massif region where all but five of the 11 apartments in the final phase have been sold. The scheme includes an open-air communal pool in the grounds – an unusual feature in an Alpine development of this type.

And in Samo�ns, one of the most picturesque traditional market towns in the French Alps, MGM’s development of 70 apartments at Les Chardons Argent�s – its sixth development in the town – an indoor pool for use by residents is included in the plans.

MGM has properties available to buy in around 25 mountain and lakeside locations at prices ranging from €174,000 to more than €1.5 million, depending on property size and location.
