Want to buy a place in the Alps in time for Christmas 2022? Start planning now!

OK you may be thinking what the heck, we haven't even got to Easter yet, however with mortgage applications taking a lot longer to process than previously, if you do want to own a place in the Alps in time for Christmas..now really is the time to start planning !

There’s no place quite like the Alps to celebrate Christmas, tucked up in a cosy chalet or apartment surrounded by glorious mountain scenery as the snow falls down around you.

 Choose the right village and you can have picture postcard charm on your doorstep, as well as some of Europe’s best skiing to enjoy.

 It’s certainly one of the main attractions for anyone thinking of buying a ski chalet or apartment in the alps - the option to spending the festive season in such a beautiful part of the world.

 But if you’re thinking of buying a property in the Alps to enjoy this Christmas, it’s time to start planning. Property sales can take months, and if you want time to put your own stamp on your place ahead of December, there’s no time like the present to start looking.


The first thing you’ll need to choose is where to buy your property - and you might want to take a few field trips to check out the areas you have in mind. Work out what’s important to you - whether that’s amazing slopes on the doorstep, family friendly facilities or great adventure sports opportunities.

 Next on the agenda is deciding what type of property you want. Do you want a cosy hideaway for two, a family holiday-home or a sprawling party-pad?

 Of course budget will factor into these equations. If you’re thinking of letting out your property when it’s not in use, you can offset some of the cost of the property with the money you make renting it, but it’s worth doing some research into the most appropriate types of mortgage.

 Buying abroad may seem complicated, but here at Alpine Property Investments, we’re experts in buying and selling property in the Alps. We can help to guide you through the process and find an Alpine property that’s just right for you.
