The new flexible leaseback option allows owners to change their usage after the first three years

One of France’s leading property developers, MGM, has launched a new ski-in, ski-out development in Les Saisies, just in time for the new ski season. Résidence Amaya will comprise 44 luxury leaseback purchase apartments, each with a large private balcony, storage lock up, a ski locker and an underground parking space.

Additionally, purchasers will benefit from excellent on-site amenities including swimming pools, a spa area and gymnasium. The resort is in close proximity to the ‘Carrets’ ski slope, giving purchasers direct access to the Espace Diamant ski area, and 192km of ski slopes, in less than 15 minutes.

MGM’s leaseback offering also allows the owner to change their usage options after the first three years, introducing a flexibility unavailable elsewhere in the French Alps. Prices for Résidence Amaya, which is part of MGM’s new generation of ski properties, start from €258,333 for a one-bedroom apartment to a €645,833 for a four-bedroom home.

Richard Deans, Sales Manager at MGM, comments: “MGM’s new shorter leaseback offering has been exceptionally popular with prospective purchasers and allows users to increase or decrease their usage terms every three years. We found that many MGM purchasers wish to use their property more or less frequently depending on their stage in life, so we made an option to allow greater flexibility for them. This opportunity is currently only available through MGM, while many other developers only allow similar usage after ten or more years.”

Kitchens come fully fitted  with granite worktops

Each sitting room features stone flooring and large sliding bay windows, allowing for panoramic views of the Alpine scenery. Kitchens come fully fitted with granite worktops and wine cooler, while bedrooms have oak parquet flooring and each has a large fitted wardrobe. The bathrooms are designed to be perfect for unwinding after a busy day on the slopes, with a large bath, heated towel rail, vanity unit, integrated downlights and hairdryer. MGM’s hotel-style service will mean the apartments are ready to be occupied on arrival, as the apartment will be cleaned in the owner’s absence and linen will also be provided.

The amenities on site are unrivalled, including an integrated swimming pool, sauna, steam room, and Jacuzzi as well as a fully-equipped gym and fitness centre. The wellness and spa centre has been designed with the whole family in mind, and with separate paddling pools for children. Perfect for keen skiing families, residents can ski directly from the apartment to the nearest ski lift. Nicknamed the ‘snow barn’ of the Savoie area of the Alps, the resort is a safe bet for purchasers who are keen to guarantee an abundance of snow in high season.
