I’ve written in previous blog posts about the current global trend of people wanting to experience open spaces and areas of outstanding natural beauty. The ‘flight from the cities’ has affected the alps in a very positive way, as the summer visitor numbers will attest. For some people, this shift has been about travelling to rural, coastal or mountainous areas during holiday periods. For others, it’s about considering a much more significant lifestyle change.
The undeniable benefit of remote working is that you don’t need to limit yourself to living in a particular geographical area. This has given people the freedom to leave urban areas and head to somewhere altogether more picturesque.
I believe the Alps is the perfect destination for those who want to make this kind of change. My recent trip to France and Switzerland showed just how well the Alps are managing the dual challenge/opportunity this year has brought.
Is the time right for you to buy in the Alps?
You may be one of the many people who are considering purchasing a property in the Alps. Property is generally considered a good investment even in uncertain economic periods.
Whatever your reason for considering an alpine investment, I can assure you that there are currently a large number of opportunities to take advantage of.
If you do want to enjoy the many perks the Alps have to offer for yourself, now is a great time to make a move. Not only are market conditions very favourable, you’d also be able to spend a large part of the winter season in your new Alpine property.
Are you considering an extended trip?
Buying property isn’t the only way to benefit from all the Alps have to offer this winter. If you don’t want to commit to the area long term, or if you’re not yet ready to do so, there is another option.
There are some excellent private seasonal rentals available over the coming season. The thing to keep in mind here is that many of these aren’t being advertised on the open market.
This is an ideal option for you if you’d like to enjoy an extended trip to the Alps in luxury accommodation without taking on any long-term responsibilities.
