Investing in Courchevel, a winning bet

Betting on a seasonal rental investment in Courchevel is a particularly profitable operation due to the cross-dynamism of the purchase and short-term rental markets in the French Alps.

Count € 12,255 * / m2 on average for the purchase of a chalet and € 9,863 * / m2 for a luxury apartment located in one of the five villages of Courchevel.

A sign of unmistakable dynamism and attractiveness: prices in the Northern Alps climbed by 7% on average in 2020, against 2.1% nationally, which augurs bright prospects for capital gains.

Buy to rent: a project for 9 out of 10 buyers

If the real estate purchase market is particularly dynamic in Courchevel, it is above all because seasonal rentals are doing very well in the resort, which has a capacity of around 40,000 beds.

Thus, 90% of goods purchased, both new and old, are purchased with a view to being rented out, at least for part of the year. And everything lends itself to it: on the one hand, investors are encouraged by low mortgage rates and favorable taxation linked to furnished rentals. On the other hand, customers are more than ever attracted by the great outdoors and the possibilities of working remotely in a setting offering them high-end activities, summer and winter, and infrastructures that we are entitled to. expect from the host resort of the next World Ski Championships. The international reputation of Courchevel obviously doing the rest.

Even if all the indicators are green, a real estate transaction in Courchevel will only become a profitable investment if all aspects of the rental have been optimized. By offering an innovative seasonal rental management solution and in-depth expertise in VAT recovery, we are able to bring you the best possible profitability for your property.

The most professional team I have encountered in my 35 years in the field

The Emerald Stay team understands market dynamics and relevant technology to perfection, but they also have a sharp eye for property-related details. In the first quarter working with them, they spotted issues in my chalet that I had never even seen. They also generated more rent than in the previous 2 years.

An expert team with an unusual eye for property management and guest relationships

My partner and I first heard of the Emerald Stay team from guests who were staying at one of the properties managed by them in Moriond. Given their phenomenal impressions, we decided to give Emerald Stay a go, as our previous engagement with a local agency was not working. We have not looked back. The Emerald Stay team is extremely detailed and careful in the treatment of our home, and in the guest experiences they manage. We feel truly taken care of, and part of something bigger.

All the answers to your questions

We manage a total of 15 properties in exclusivity at Courchevel (La Tania, le Praz, Courchevel village, Moriond or Courchevel 1850). We are also present in other resorts in Three Valleys, and will add new properties to our portfolio in the coming months.

Indeed. You can benefit from a 20% discount on the price of your property by working with us. Since the start, we have made VAT reclaim a priority, ensuring that we master it from every angle, and priding ourselves for being the most rigorous players in structuring VAT rebate operations in the French Alps. We take it very seriously to protect our owners and ensure their fiscal structure is bulletproof. Working with Emerald Stay means we will be checking all the boxes to ensure a seamless VAT reclaim. This includes providing hotel-like services (such as cleaning, breakfast and linen); issuing invoices and collecting those from suppliers; and importantly, correctly accounting for your own personal stays. We have had a 100% success rate so far and intend to keep it that way. You will be matched with a personal Emerald Stay assistant that will know your property inside out and will give you bespoke advice on all VAT rebate matters.

We have an Emerald Stay team in Courchevel that manages all property management activities, such as day-to-day operations, emergency and proactive maintenance, and security and quality audits.

In addition, our team of trained off-site experts are available 7 days a week to assist you with any property management inquiries, whether it's home maintenance, VAT recovery advice or recommendations about activities to do while in Courchevel.

Lastly, we offer you a range of hospitality services you can take advantage of while at Courchevel (also available to our customers): airport transfers, ski lessons, massage and wellness services, Michelin-star chef dinners, and more!

We distribute our properties on several online channels, including Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia, and Homeaway, as well as on other niche luxury property platforms. Our offline channels include international travel agents and our own direct platform, which attracts an increasing number of guests.

No matter the channel, our advanced pricing and distribution strategy ensures that your property is rented at the highest possible price, attending to demand dynamics and market trends. Our team of engineers uses hospitality and tech best practices to boost the performance of your property and make its use optimal for your needs and desired occupancy.

Over the years, we have achieved a preferential status on most of the channels we operate in (Superhost on Airbnb, Preferred Partner on Booking.com, etc.). This means your property will appear on the first page of any search, just because it’s an Emerald Stay property.

We only accept properties that comply with premium quality standards. Different combinations of size, number of bedrooms, proximity to the ski slopes, location inside Courchevel resort (whether La Tania, le Praz, Courchevel village, Moriond or Courchevel 1850), and additional features such as jacuzzi, wellness area, or garden, can make up a premium apartment or chalet. We carefully choose exclusive properties whose owners share our fondness for luxury real estate and our mindset of excellence.

Request a rental simulation for your Courchevel property and one of our team members will be in touch with bespoke advice on your property.

In all of our years in operation, we have not experienced damages beyond normal wear and tear. However, you can rest assured: every one of our stays is protected by a multi-risk reconstruction policy that insures your luxury property against all potential damages.

In addition, we verify the identity of clients and take a deposit online, both of which are essential prerequisites for accessing your accommodation.

Rent is paid quarterly. Your rent is net of honoraries and taxes. You will not be charged on top or invoiced back any other costs; our commission covers everything.

You can track the income generated by your property in real time from the Emerald Stay owner's application.

We manage more than 100 properties and no owner has ever left us.

Our standards are very high and our team is best-in-class. Engineers, real estate professionals, finance specialists, and hospitality experts; our multi-faceted, multi-lingual squad is at your service.

In only 3 years, we have managed to be leaders in the French Alps region and received the Shortyz award for Best Leisure Property Manager. Most important, however, is the way we build relationships with our owners and their properties. When we sign a contract, we don’t simply establish a money exchange: we start a partnership - a partnership is mutual, and it is built on respect, trust and hard work. Our relationships with owners are our secret sauce; the reason we are successful in this business.

Absolutely. Your property is yours and so is your freedom to use it at will. You will be able to book your own stays with your personal Emerald Stay assistant, or through an application designed exclusively for your property. Through your owner app you will be able to monitor your earnings, reviews and booking calendar. We are continuously working to add more functionality and more features, so stay tuned.

If under a VAT rebate scheme, we will advise you on the required procedures for adequate accounting and declaration of your personal stays.

Us. If you work with Emerald Stay, you won’t be able to change the pricing of your chalet or apartment. Why? Because we employ a full team of engineers dedicated to finding the absolute best rates given the season, month and day of the week. We make use of a proprietary algorithm that takes into account more than 40 real estate parameters. We monitor and adapt market prices daily. And we follow trends in demand. This is the reason why our owners earn 30% more than with the competition.

Sharing the control of the pricing implies there is a high risk it will be suboptimal. This means that if you are not prepared to surrender this control, unfortunately we won’t be able to work together.

Our contracts are 3-year engagements, with an opt-out clause after the first 12 months.

Why 3 years?

We estimate that a property in Courchevel reaches its maximum rental potential after 18-24 months of being listed. Reviews, repeat business and visibility are the main reasons for this.

In addition, our contracts are built in the spirit of partnership. We believe our efforts to optimise the use of your chalet or apartment are adequately matched by a commitment to work together for at least three years. Given no owner has left us so far, we are confident in our ability to honor your expectations.
