MGM French Properties is delighted to announce the launch of a new development in picturesque Champagny-en-Vanoise. Perfect for buyers looking for a hassle-free second-home, the new Les Balcons des Etoilés is located in an enviable position at the heart of the village and features six chalets comprising of 47 one – three-bedroom apartments.
With the pound to euro exchange rate reaching its strongest point for seven years earlier this year , Richard Deans of MGM French Properties explains that “today’s exchange rate means that a €450,000 property is now £55,000 cheaper than it was in March 2014– a huge incentive for prospective purchasers. We have noticed a definite increase in pre-season enquires across the Alps this year thanks to promising early snow, the strength of the exchange rate and greater confidence in the market. A number of units have already been reserved during our pre-launch period.”
