French Chalet specialist OVO Network launch their summer season with a record number of properties available to rent and rather than preventing growth, state that the pandemic has increased the popularity of both renting and owning chalets.

As the world entered an era in which people wanted to escape to nature, to get in touch with loved ones, or simply to reconnect with themselves, renting a chalet in France has grown in popularity. Plus, now, more than ever, owners of chalets are benefitting from renting out their chalets year-round.

Louis Andrews, Operations Director of OVO Network comments, “This winter season has seen a huge increase in demand – both from the French market and from overseas visitors.

“Fresh air, healthy living and accommodation with private facilities were key requirements at the height of the pandemic – luxurious Alpine chalets tick all of these boxes. As a result, demand for many of our properties was so great, that at certain periods we could have sold them several times over. Also, with our ‘OVO Verified’ status our guests are guaranteed the safety of their money when making chalet bookings with us*.

“Throughout the pandemic we took a bold stance to expand our programme, rather than reduce it. We took on new properties, introduced new destinations such as St Gervais and Chatel and more owners chose to work with us because of our expertise in the chalet rental market. This has paid off, with our chalet owners attracting strong bookings throughout the ski season and going forward into summer and autumn 2022.”

OVO Network has availability throughout the year at nearly 300 chalets across the French Alps, including:

Property of the Week: Villa Mas Peyloubet

Property of the Week: Villa Mas Peyloubet

Mas Peyloubet is an incredibly special, large property for sale in the Grasse region of France, with the Main House, which dates back to the eighteenth century, offering spectacular panoramic sea views.

The Main House has five ensuite bedrooms, a large and wonderful kitchen, sitting room, TV room and in addition, the Olive Grove Apartment having a further two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The extensive garden within 1.4 hectares of grounds, consists of a large salt water pool, outdoor summer kitchen, terrain de boules, table tennis and a flat lawn where you can play a friendly game of croquet and enjoy the sun.

Erna Low Property is selling this property for €4.8m – either as a successful guest house business or a private residence.

James Ross, Sales Director at Erna Low Property comments, “Mas Peyloubet has it in abundance, when pondering what the ultimate south of France hideaway would consist of. Not only are the views to the Mediterranean and over to Grasse spectacular, but the house with its warm living areas and ‘jump into bed and sleep forever’ bedrooms, is a haven from the outside world. The olive grove and salt water swimming pool are the icing on the cake on what can only be described as paradise on earth. We are excited to have this property for sale, it really is a dream property to own.”

Mas Peyloubet is perfectly located to take advantage of the best of the South of France:
Nice International Airport and Cannes are 30 minutes away and the closest village is Valbonne, 10 minutes away and Grasse or Mougin are both just 15 minutes away.

Further details:

Both the living room and dining room open onto the outside sitting area, shaded under arches from the hot sun with Indonesian and Moroccan furniture. The area looks out onto a lawn; steps lead off the lawn up to the swimming pool, situated on a higher level. To the left of the entrance hall is a television room and study.

The grounds are set on 1.4 hectares with sea views and are made up of terraces with old dry stone walls, lavender, roses and over 250 ancient olive trees that are harvested at the end of the year and pressed at a local mill into the most wonderful virgin cold pressed olive oil – there are also fig and orange trees where the current owner makes their own jam, chutney and marmalade.

The Belleview Apartment:
A separate outhouse for a caretaker, or additional rooms consisting of living room, kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom with its own driveway and parking. It is possible to create a gym or an office in this very usable space.

Erna Low, the Ski Specialist to the French Alps, launches the winter season with 10 New Properties.

For the first time, Erna Low adds the picturesque resort of Arêches-Beaufort. Arêches-Beaufort is a  great resort for families as it has a much shorter drive time from Calais as well as being a good value alternative to more well-known resorts. It is close to Albertville in the Beaufortain valley and will be particularly attractive to lovers of the famous Beaufort cheese. Whilst the resort is little-known on the UK market, the advantage is that prices are very competitive throughout the season.

A seven night stay in the New 4* La Cle des Cimes Residence with its indoor pool and ô Pure spa will cost just £747 for the week beginning 05 January 2019 for a 1 bedroom apartment for 4 person including a return Flexiplus crossing with Eurotunnel for 1 car. That equates to £187 per person including travel.

Joanna Yellowlees-Bound, CEO of Erna Low comments, “Over the last few seasons we have realised that we are selling more self-drive ski holidays to the French Alps than any other type of ski holiday, so moving forward this is what we have decided to focus on – ski holidays to France. With all our years of experience and knowledge, we endeavour to find the best ski holidays for our clients”.

Over 30 years ago, in Erna Low’s Guide to Family Skiing of 1973, founder Erna Low herself wrote; “Renting a furnished apartment is a very popular and comparatively inexpensive way for a family to enjoy a ski holiday. Apartments can be rented in all the modern French ski stations – La Plagne, Les Arcs, Flaine and many others.”

Erna Low added, “Taking your own car has advantages if at least four people travel together, take their own food for the journey and motor through the night. Your car and passenger passage by boat (Sealink or Townsend Thorensen) should be booked well in advance direct with the shipping company. Remember to drive on the RIGHT and take pills for car sickness.”

Today Erna Low continues to promote travelling by car to the Alps and the company enjoys a special partnership with Eurotunnel. The result is that all clients travel with Flexiplus (equivalent to travelling Club or First Class on a flight). Clients enjoy access to the new Flexiplus lounges in Folkestone and Calais and benefit from priority boarding.

New in Alpe d’Huez the 5* Hotel & Residence Daria-I Nor

This new hotel with some additional spacious apartments in the Residence Daria-I-Nor is in the central Eclose area of Alpe d’Huez, with spectacular panoramic views of the valley and easy access to the slopes. Erna Low offer 7 nights from 05 January 2019 for £1536 for a 1 bedroom apartment with cabin for 4 persons including use of the fabulous spa facilities at the hotel. This price also includes a return Flexiplus crossing with Eurotunnel.

Ever Popular Arc 1950

Arc 1950 remains one of the most popular resorts offered by Erna Low. Book now for Half Term:
Erna Low
 offers 7 nights in ski in-out Arc 1950, France, for February half term with a saving of 10% on the accommodation. A spacious 2 bedroom apartment for 4/6 persons was £3801 and is now £3460. All residences have their own pool and the resort offers a programme of activities for children during the week, as well as having a crèche for little ones. This price also includes a return Flexiplus crossing with Eurotunnel  arriving 16 February 2019. There are further Early Booking Discounts of up to 20% off low season dates.

Erna Low Property has unrivalled knowledge of the French property market, with a particular expertise in the French Alps. Erna Low Property launches its 2018 French Alps Property Report which includes the following key trends:

French Property Market Is Booming

There were a record number of sales of existing properties last year (958,000 report page 5). Along with strong international demand, this is helping to drive a wave of new developments across the French Alps.

Vaujany, connected to Alpe d’Huez, is a great example of this where Erna Low Property currently has three developments in progress with sales being fuelled by the impending 2021 lift- link to neighbouring ski resort Les Deux Alpes.

Race To The Top

French resorts are involved in a “race to the top” to become global brands – and they are investing staggering amounts of money in redevelopment and infrastructure. La Plagne, for example, has announced €455million of new spending (some of this is in collaboration with Pierre et Vacances). €12 million of this is focused on new snowmaking systems. La Plagne will also see its first 5* development of apartments – The White Pearl. Châtel continues to expand, with new developments taking advantage of its rising profile, both as a ski resort and a mountain-biking hub.

 

Ultra-Low Euro Mortgage Rates and the Best Currency Rates

Ultra-low Euro mortgage rates mean the cost of borrowing is cheap [see graph on page 5]; repayments on, for example, a €240,000 fixed rate mortgage are still considerably lower in 2018 than they were in 2011 and 2014.

 

Francois Marchand, Director of Erna Low Property adds, “Interest from UK-based buyers remains strong. The average spend of Erna Low Property clients has risen in the last two years, this coupled with the ongoing low mortgage rates mean it is an excellent time for buyers; plus with our currency expert Halo, we can ensure buyers benefit from the best rates available.”

 

South of France or French Alps for Summer

Buyers are ever-more interested in summer – a resort with good summer facilities, close to Geneva or other main airport – are now as sought-after in summer as in winter.

 

Erna Low Property has been selling properties in the South of France for over 10 years. Complementing its Alps business, clients have options in the Cote d’Azur and Provence. NEW, close to Cannes, Villa Alice offers apartments from just €150,000.

 

Standards Are Rising

The age of the rabbit-hutch apartment is gone, and our partner developers such as Nexalia and Terresens offer more spacious properties, with bigger windows, higher-quality finishes, and wood-burning stoves. Customised interiors (e.g. you can reduce the number of bedrooms if you want a bigger lounge), and more flexible rental schemes are all part of the scene now.

Erna Low’s ongoing relationship with top Canadian resort developer Intrawest (well-known for pioneering Whistler and Mont Tremblant in Canada and Arc 1950 Le Village in France) led to the launch of Erna Low Property in 2003. Arc 1950, a new ski village in the French Alps and Intrawest’s very first project in Europe, was the first key property sales project for Erna Low and over the past few years, Erna Low’s property sales service has gone from strength to strength. Erna Low Property has its dedicated Estate Agency to sell properties all over the Alps and the South of France to property investors.

Erna Low Property now holds a sizeable portfolio of properties from the French Alps, across Europe and beyond. With their background as a specialist, niche tour operator, Erna Low Property and Erna Low Travel have been hugely successful in introducing many clients to both property sales and holiday rentals.

 

SUMMER SUN FROM ERNA LOW PROPERTY – PROVENCE AND ST TROPEZ

Provence Villas – France – from 388,000 euro

 Erna Low

 

In the heart of Provence is a collection of villas set against the backdrop of a small mountain range and surrounded by beautiful pine trees. The development is made up 15 luxurious villas, from 3 to 4 bedrooms all in a contemporary high-end design, but with a nod to the traditional Provençal architecture.  Erna Low Property

A five-minute walk from the centre of the villages of Paradou and Maussane Les Alpille, Villas Lavande is less than one hour from the Mediterranean and 30 minutes from the airports of Nimes and Avignon.  Two top regional gold courses are only 3 km away.

James Ross, Sales Manager at Erna Low Property comments, “This stunning complex is a truly unique opportunity to invest in one of the only developments of its kind in the immediate vicinity, as there is a moratorium on all development for the next 15 years.”

Each villa comes with its own private swimming pool and secluded, south facing large garden, and also benefits from two private covered parking spaces and bike storage facilities.

All villas are available as either classic (standard second home purchase) freehold or leaseback (managed investment) properties, with delivery due for September 2016.

South of France – St Tropez – Four bedroom Villa -2,500,000 euro

Erna Low Property France

After 30 years in the same family, this four bedroom villa is for sale with the most spectacular views out to the Gulf of St Tropez.

Set high atop the exclusive Village des Pecheurs, 50 metres from the beach, the setting for the villa couldn’t look more South of France, built to recreate the style and atmosphere of the fishing village that originally occupied the site.

Erna Low St Tropez

The four double bedrooms (all en-suite) are well appointed with the three largest bedrooms also benefiting from the views over the Mediterranean. A further living room, dining area and kitchen, plus utility room complete the villa.

The large terrace and built-in barbeque are perfect for relaxing during the summer months with the sea and swimming pool only meters away to cool down in.

James Ross, Erna Low Property Sales Manager adds, “I have visited this property which has a unique location close to what is an almost private beach at Bonne Terasse. It is a fantastic opportunity to own a four bedroom villa in this exclusive area of the South France, just 15 minutes from the centre of St Tropez.”
