Top 3 reasons to choose a seasonal or annual rentals in the Alps ￼
There are several reasons why individuals choose to live in the mountains with seasonal or annual rentals in the Alps.
Outdoor-loving families looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, people thinking about buying and testing out life in the mountains, or just fans of peace and quiet who like waking up to fresh air and breathtaking vistas every day. Is an alpine lifestyle right for you? Here are the top three reasons why more people are migrating here, either temporarily or permanently.
1. THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY MOUNTAIN LIVING
Many of our seasonal and yearly guests are either getting their feet wet in the mountain life before acquiring their own property, or they are having a chalet built/renovated and want alternative lodging that feels like home.
Our great range of available residences on this basis is inviting, functional, and impeccably furnished; spaces meant to be lived in and loved. Down your home-away-from-home, you can completely settle in and immerse yourself in the alpine lifestyle, whether you’re working remotely, skiing, or simply establishing unique family memories.
Each Lodge Destinations property has a personal concierge to ensure everything functions well before and throughout your stay. They are also fountains of information that can provide limitless suggestions and guidance, from where to get the best coffee in the morning to proposing activities for the kids. In no time, you’ll feel like a native!
2. EXCELLENT SCHOOLING
Switzerland is home to some of the most prestigious private schools in the world. Some families move to the mountains to provide their children the opportunity to attend one of these institutions while also living an active outdoor lifestyle in beautiful settings, either seasonally or permanently.
Verbier International School and Copperfield are two great international schools. Children may immerse themselves in a foreign language while being surrounded by peers from all over the world, expanding their horizons and cultural understanding. They will also acquire a real liking for skiing if they practice continuously throughout the winter rather than simply for a week’s vacation.
3. DO YOU GO ON MULTIPLE SKI TRIP PER SEASON?
Many of our clients visit the mountains many times every season. A luxurious seasonal rental allows them to enjoy a home-away-from-home experience without having to repack their winter clothing for each trip.
With additional time and a base in the mountains, you’ll be able to explore terrain you’ve never skied before, perfect your technique, and enjoy the resort on your own terms, rather than just during peak periods.
Even if you want to divide your time between your primary residence and your mountain hideaway, the resorts in which we operate are all within easy reach of Europe’s major cities, making a weekend ski trip a practical, stress-free alternative throughout the winter season.
