Check out the video showing the construction phases of the new International Train Station in St Jean de Maurienne, Europe's largest infrastructure project. Being built right now, once complete, the line will connect Paris - Lyon - Chambery - St Jean de Maurienne - Turin - Milan together on one high speed link.
With a projected 3 hour journey time from the centre of Paris to St Jean de Maurienne (currently around 3 hr 45 mins), this will put the hidden gem of the 310km Les Sybelles ski domain that include the resorts of La Toussuire, St Jean d'Arves and St Sorlin d'Arves as the closest ski area to those living in the capital.
For the dual season resort of La Toussuire itself, set at an altitude of 1750m, this will become the closest ski resort in the French Alps to those from Paris.
Slated for completion in 2029-2030, this huge project will make train travel to this area simpler and much more efficient as well as being an environmentally friendly way to travel.
We at Alpine Property Investments also expect to see a large upscaling on the demand for property in this region for both winter and summer usage, the latter being thanks to Les Sybelles being in the Maurienne Valley, the worlds largest cycling network with over 800km at your fingertips.
Not only do we anticipate an increase in property prices in the area, but with the anticipated increased numbers of visitors coming to the area, rental incomes are expected to rise due to increased demand across the season.
To find out more about properties both current and future for sale in Les Sybelles, please search by resort La Toussuire, St Sorlin d'Arves, St Jean d'Arves and we will be pleased to send you further information.
