In The Times last week, Cathy Hawker uncovers what the 2021-22 season has in store for the Alpine property market.


After the pandemic left skiers out in the cold for the past two seasons, demand to return to the slopes is huge. For property buyers, mountain living is ideal for social distancing, so it’s no wonder that fresh air, open spaces and the healthy good life are more popular than ever.


Cathy Hawker writes of the property market over the past year, revealing that across all resorts there have been price rises, transaction increases and a serious shortage of stock.
