L'Echappee is a wonderful and charming new gated residence of forty-two 1 to 3 bedroom apartments with incredible mountain views created in the style of the old mountain villages including a small winding road between the 4 chalets. The properties are constructed of high quality materials incorporating stone and wood designed to feel cosy and warm and include floor to ceiling tiles in the bathrooms, built in wardrobes, underground parking/garages, cellars, ski lockers and bike lockers. Use this as your main or second home or if you wish you can sign a rental mandate with Avecoeur who provide quasi hotel services and concierge for short term bookings. If you sign this mandate and rent your apartment out for at least a few weeks each year you will benefit from receiving back all the VAT included in your purchase price (20%) but also of course the rental income received less the commission. Avecoeur, in addition to property management are also developers, interior designers and mortgage brokers, making the group a unique one stop shop for property investors in France.
L'Echappee is perfectly located in a quiet area surrounded by nature and the mountains, just 300m from the chair lift and the shops & restaurants of Morillon and a 6 minute drive from the historic centre of Samoens which has a great choice of amenities including a Spa and yoga. There is also a cycle path and a free year round ski bus that shuttles you to Samoens and back to Morillon. Morillon forms part of the Grand Massiff ski zone with 265km of slopes up to 2,500m altitude and shares the ski domain with Flaine, Les Carroz, Samoens and Sixt Fer à Cheval. The largest of these is the modern, purpose built ski resort of Flaine which hosts festivals and has a large selection of facilities and a lively apres ski but the charm is to be found in its smaller surrounding villages like Samoens and Morillon. This is an area that is perfect for biking and hiking in the summer as well as of course skiing and cross-country skiing, Ski Joering, Biathlons and Heliskiing in the winter and most suitable for those looking for nature and old world charm away from the long queues of the modern ski resorts. Other activities/places to see in Samoens and its surroundings include an open air pool, tennis, bowling, fishing, picnics, a botanic garden and the ruins of the Chateau Fort.
