BARNES MONT-BLANC strengthens its presence in Haute-Savoie with the opening of an office in La Clusaz (74)

ouverture agence barnes aravis

Since its creation, BARNES MONT-BLANC has understood that mountain real estate represents a growth market. With 6 offices in the Haute-Savoie department -Megève, Chamonix, Annecy, Aix-les-Bains, Divonne-les-Bains, and Archamps- BARNES MONT-BLANC is opening its 7th in La Clusaz. Located at the foot of the Aravis mountain range, the village of La Clusaz attracts people with its charm and its proximity to Annecy and Geneva.

An authentic village that attracts French and foreign customers

Ideally located 30 minutes from Annecy, 1 hour from Geneva and its international airport, the village of La Clusaz is situated at the foot of the Aravis massif, close to the villages of Manigod and Grand Bornand. As a winter sports resort, La Clusaz has more than 1,700 inhabitants all year round and nearly 20,000 tourist beds. Authentic and dynamic, this village cultivates the Savoyard way of life while adapting to the challenges of climate change. In addition to a renowned alpine domain, stretching over 5 massifs and more than 130 km of ski slopes, La Clusaz offers year-round activities and infrastructures geared towards well-being, culture and sport.

In La Clusaz, the average price of a top-of-the-range property is around €10,000/m2. "The Client base of La Clusaz finds the charm and authenticity of a mountain village while benefiting from an entry ticket more accessible than certain resorts such as Megève or Chamonix. Our clientele of buyers is composed of 80% French - historically from Annecy, Geneva and Lyon - and 20% foreigners. Among this foreign clientele, 10% are British", comments David Pretot, director of BARNES MONT-BLANC.

The village of the French Alps, which are very well served, respond to a need to get away from it all after the periods of lockdown; family, health, well-being and sport, the values promoted by the Haute-Savoie, are at the heart of buyers concerns. There are also concierge services and fine gastronomy, which are all assets that attract a French clientele, but also wealthy foreign buyers.

Interesting development prospects in a high-growth market

"With the opening of this BARNES Aravis office in La Clusaz, we are further strengthening our commitment to cover the mountain market as much as possible and to respond to the demands of a hard to please clientele looking for a secure investment, whether for a second home or a semi-main residence", explains Geraint Davies, director of BARNES Aravis.

Luxury real estate remains a secure investment. With a wealthy clientele, the various resorts have a very promising future ahead of them. The French Alps are a popular destination for tourists from all over the world, the need for accommodation is real and the supply limited.

Convinced by this growing demand in the mountain sector, the BARNES Aravis office will also have a team dedicated to the Val d'Arly & Beaufortain area. But that's not all, within two years, BARNES MONT-BLANC plans to open a new office in the Grand Massif area, which includes the ski resorts of Samoëns, Flaine, Morillon, Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval and Les Carroz d'Arâches.
