Is all the snow giving you a taste for more of the white stuff?
With French mortgage interest rates at an all-time historic low, according to Athena Advisors, there has never been a better time to buy a ski property in France. Consider the fact it is possible to get a 20 year fixed rate mortgage at only 3.60 per cent with a deposit of only 15 per cent.
If you are seeking a lovely chalet directly on the slopes, then Dutch company Dop Real Estate Agents offer chalets and apartments in the main ski resorts of France: from 210,000 euros for an apartment, 275,000 for a chalet.
"More and more buyers are interested in potential rental incomes and our projects offer attractive returns on investment," says Mr Dop.
"Every project has its own manager who can organise everything on site: dealing with guests, changeovers, cleaning and maintenance."
