Les Cimes is a new development of 71 one to four bedroom apartments distributed over 5 floors with balconies with views of the surrounding town. Each bright and spacious apartment benefits from a ski locker and an underground garage with the option of a storage room for some. These energy efficient apartments have double glazing and are heated by a biomass heating system operated by the town of Briancon. Entry is by video phone, lighting is activated by motion sensors and access to the parking is via remote control. There are electric powered blinds throughout, heated towel rails, large tiles and more plus there is a bicycle storage room. 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 managers are also developers, interior designers and mortgage brokers, making the group a unique one stop shop for property investors in France.
Briancon is the highest altitude commune in France near the Italian border and designated a UNESCO world heritage site due to its mountain top Vauban fortifications and its rich culture and history. The new residence is located in the centre of the town and just 300m from the cable car that gives you access to the entire Serre Chevalier ski area with 250km of slopes and up to 3664m in altitude where 80% of the slopes are above 2000m in altitude ensuring good snow cover and great skiing conditions. With over 300 days of sunshine each year it has a fantastic climate with both summer and winter activities due to its proximity to the "Parc National des Ecrins". Such summer activities include mountain biking, hiking, mountain climbing, water-sports, horse-riding and more. In the town of Briancon itself there is plenty to do with a media centre, cinema, shops, bars, restaurants and good transport links throughout the town.
