YOUR MOUNTAIN CHALET

he original purpose of alpine chalets - or also called mountain huts - is to give shelter to shepherds and to use them as stables during the summer months, while the cattle was up on the Alps.
 

With the industrialization, the original purpose of mountain huts got lost more and more. From an economic perspective, alpine farming doesn´t yield enough money anymore, compared to farms in the valley, equipped with high tech.

 

So today, most mountain huts are used mainly as alpine chalets for touristic purposes.

BUY AN ALPINE CHALET

The demand for alpine chalets is rising over the last years, so also prices are rising.

 

Should you plan to buy an alpine chalet and the price is significantly lower than expected, you definitely should involve an expert to evaluate the building structure.

 

Otherwise, you could face some bad surprises later on, and have to invest more money for renovation than expected.

 

Before buying, also take into consideration the ancillary costs for electricity, water, and the infrastructure in general: is there a road to the alpine chalet, and in which condition is the road? Is the Alpine chalet accessible in winter-time?
