Happy French Alps Week! A private, snug cottage fifteen minutes from Les Deux Alpes, a stunning alpine ski resort!
To celebrate the holidays, I wanted to share some properties for sale in the French Alps! More affordable than the Swiss Alps, the French Alps are home to beautiful snowy mountains, lots of skiing, and outdoor sports. A perfect wintery dream!
