Eiffage Immobilier delivers Fermes de l'Alpe, exceptional new flats in the heart of Alpe d'Huez

Set against the enchanting backdrop of the Grandes Rousses massif, at an altitude of over 1,800 metres, the Fermes de l'Alpe development was handed over by our teams in December 2023. Inspired by the traditional architecture of mountain pasture farms, this development comprises 4 buildings and a town house (R+3 to R+6), which skilfully combine modernity with respect for mountain architectural codes, using materials such as wood and stone.

Nestling in the heart of the picturesque Vieil Alpe district, the Fermes de l'Alpe development has everything to make you melt! It offers 62 homes, ranging from 2- to 6-room apartments, some with large terraces offering breathtaking views of the surrounding snow-capped peaks. In the heart of the shops and right next to the cable cars giving access to the ski area, the development offers an ideal location for mountain lovers.

The major challenge for our Eiffage Construction teams on this project was to complete the shell and roofing of the four buildings before the onset of winter.

  • The summer of 2021 marked the prelude to this adventure with large-scale preparatory work, including the demolition of existing structures, earthworks and the installation of temporary retaining walls.
  • The works kicked off in May 2022 with the launch of the structural work, a stage that was successfully completed in October 2022. Immediately afterwards, the envelope phase took over from September to November 2022.

The timing was tight, but our teams rose to the challenge with exemplary logistical tenacity.

Following this major project, 62 homes for first-time buyers were built, covering a total surface area of almost 13,080m² and with 4,407m² of living space.These carefully designed homes feature a glulam roof structure, mixed exterior and interior insulation, larch wood cladding on the facades and exterior wood joinery.

Despite the challenges imposed by the Alpine winter, the development was successfully delivered, giving future residents the opportunity to make their home in this exceptional corner of the French Alps. A big well done to our Eiffage Construction teams for their expertise in mountain work.Discover our latest Les Fermes de l'Alpe flats, from 4-room to 6-room duplexes, and move into your new home today.
