A specialist mountain property agent has ranked the French resort as the best place to buy a property, based on its points system.



Alpine Property Search - a new agency launched this winter - has published an index that ranks 21 French Alpine ski resorts against a number of factors that can help buyers make an informed choice.

It compares resorts based on a points system for five key indicators - snow record and snow making facilities, size of ski area, relative affordability (compared with Knight Frank's average of 30 resorts in France, Switzerland and Austria), year-round suitability and accessibility.

The index assigns a score out of 20 and gives Chamonix 18.

Runners up were St Martin de Belleville, St Gervais, Les Gets and Morzine all with 17 out of 20.

"The intrepid Alpine Property Search team embarked on an exhaustive trip to review the state of 21 French resorts," David Bhagat, founder of Alpine Property Search, said.

" We are not saying any resort is better or worse than another, just presenting some important considerations and trying to quantify them.

"Of course, there are plenty of intangibles that make up a decision to invest in an Alpine home and the most important is getting to know the area."
