La Toussuire Resort Guide

Never heard of La Toussuire? You’re not alone! This high-altitude ski resort has long been a firm favourite of French families but has previously flown below the radar of foreign skiers and property investors. It’s hard to understand why since all the ingredients are there for La Toussuire to make an ideal alpine second home or buy-to-let investment. The resort sits at a snow-sure 1,750m high and has skiing all the way up too 2,620m covering an astonishing 300kms+ of piste. Grenoble airport is little over an hour away making it ideal for short trips or long weekends. The resort itself is a firm family favourite and part of the Les Sybelles ski region – France’s fourth largest. New infrastructure development and good value apartments and chalets for sale are beginning to attract the attention of foreign investors. Now could be a good time to snap up a rare property bargain in the French Alps!

Property in La Toussuire

Property for sale in La Toussuire has been historically bene quite limited which perhaps is the reason why it has not attracted for attention from alpine second home buyers.

However, for those prepared to look hard this un-discovered corner of the French Alps could reap high rewards.

Several older hotels are now being re-development which will give property investors the chance to own a new ski-in ski-out apartment in what is France’s 4th largest ski region.

The region already covers some 300kms of piste but if plans to connect the resort to neighboring Alp d’Huez and Les Deux Alps comes to fruition then property in La Toussuire could make a smart investment.

La Toussuire property prices currently range between EUR 6,000 – 9,000 / m2 compared to nearby Alp d’Huez which can exceed EUR 17,000 / m2.

If you are looking for an apartment or chalet for sale in La Toussuire or the wider Les Sybelles ski region then do check out the new Horizon Apartments which offer some rare ski-in ski-out apartments and penthouses for sale.

Winter in La Toussuire

La Toussuire is one of 6 ski resorts that make up the Les Sybelles ski region with over 300kms of piste. Created only in 2003 this is perhaps one of the newest (and un-discovered!) ski region in the French Alps.

 

Add in neighboring Albiez (which requires a short ski bus) and you add an extra 40kms.

 

The main villages of Le Corbier, Saint-Sorlin-d'Arves, Saint-Jean-d'Arves, Les Bottières and Saint-Colomban des Villards are all shamelessly connected and covered on the same lift pass.

 

The Les Sybelles is the largest ski region in France’s Maurienne valley and the 4th largest in France. The resort is a popular destination for French families who value the uncrowded pistes, affordable mountain restaurants, and limited lift queues.

 

La Toussuire is also at a relatively snow-sure 1,750m meaning that the wide-open pistes that run down to the resort stay open for most of the ski season.

 

The popular ‘Grand Truc’ piste offers one of the longest descents in this part of the French Alps with some incredible views as you descend back into La Toussuire.

Summer in La Toussuire

Much like it’s neighboring Alpe d’Huez, La Toussuire has invested heavily into its summer tourism over the last 20 years and is now reaping the rewards.

 

The resort is now a popular destination in the summer with the Tour de France and other big sporting events being regularly hosted there.

 

The hiking options are some of the most scenic in the French Alps with un-obstructed vistas stretching far across the Maurienne Valley. The trails are all well-marked and there are plenty of options whatever your ability.

 

Popular with families with young children is the short 90 minutes loop of the village with the opportunity to cool off in one of the beautiful outdoor swimming lakes at the end!

La Toussuire has a busy schedule of activities throughout the summer designed to keep the kids (and therefore the adults!) entertained. Craft workshops, dance and fitness classes, tennis, swimming and much more await in this high-altitude alpine oasis.
