Alpe d'Huez - its region and its real estate market

Alpe d'Huez - its region and its real estate market

Located at an altitude of 1860 meters, the resort of Alpe d'Huez fulfills the expectations of winter sports enthusiasts, summer activities lovers, and cultural event-goers. With its sun-drenched peaks and internationally renowned ski slopes, Alpe d'Huez stands out as one of the skiing gems of the French Alps.

It was in the 1920s that this summer and winter sports resort in the Grandes Rousses began to develop. As early as 1968, it hosted the bobsleigh event of the Winter Olympics, in the shadow of the 3300 meters altitude of Pic Blanc. Subsequently, the Alpe d'Huez resort joined the list of the largest French ski areas with its 250 km of slopes, including the Sarenne slope, known as the longest black run in Europe.

The one nicknamed the "Island in the Sun" owes its reputation to its favorable climate and exceptional sunshine rate. Nearly 300 days a year, the sun illuminates the slopes of Alpe d'Huez, whose ski runs are connected to those of Oz, Vaujany, and Auris-en-Oisans.

The climatic conditions of Alpe d'Huez offer a wide range of activities to enjoy from winter to summer. During the winter season, winter sports enthusiasts can choose between skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice hockey, ice skating, dog sledding, snowmobiling, or exploring ice caves. For summer activities enthusiasts, the options include hiking, mountain biking, paragliding, or even triathlons.

The region and its real estate market

Alpe d'Huez is renowned among the luxury resorts of the Grandes Rousses for its charm and authenticity, embodied by its wooden buildings and chalets. These residences are spread across the seven neighborhoods that make up the resort. Le Vieil Alpe and the Jeux neighborhood are among the most sought after.

Properties located near the center of the resort and at the foot of the slopes are among the most sought after, just like the residences in the Golden Triangle, situated at the top of the resort. These areas appeal to a high-end clientele, predominantly European, eager to acquire the high-end chalets and apartments found on the "Island in the Sun."
