We're heading to the Tarentaise region of Savoie to explore the Akoya residence, which will open its doors in time for Christmas 2024. Given that MGM chooses the best locations in the Alps for its residences, it is in the unspoilt setting of the Massif de la Lauzière and its small villages of character - La Léchère, Avanchers and Valmorel - where the Akoya residence will showcase the authentic charm of architecture perfectly integrated into its environment. With its lauze roofs and stone and wood chalets, this is a true expression of the original traditions of the mountain world, and the Akoya residence is an excellent extension of these values.


Choose unspoilt authenticity and charm

The village of Valmorel is perfectly in line with the idea of a unique High-Alpine environment. There are no concrete buildings or huge complexes here, just hamlets of traditional chalets that form the architectural framework of the village. On the slopes, the ski area extends over 165km of pistes at altitudes ranging from 1450 to 2550 metres, guaranteeing quality snow cover. In summer, the 3600 hectares of unspoilt countryside offer an abundance of opportunities for outdoor pursuits. 300km of hiking trails and 365km of mountain bike paths wind their way around La Belle, which is in full harmony with nature.

A "pearl" in the middle of a precious jewel

Set right in the heart of this idyllic and precious environment, the Akoya residence, which means 'pearl' in Japanese, is the perfect place to enjoy a privileged stay close to the slopes and within walking distance of the resort. Located a stone's throw from the centre and safely linked to the village's pedestrian shopping street, the residence draws its inspiration from the surrounding chalets. With painted frescoes and colourful gables in the Sardinian-Piedmontese style of the 18th and 19​th centuries, it is in total harmony with the local features that blend seamlessly into the heart of the village. As part of the design's focus on the existing heritage, the choice of materials has naturally been stone for the base and wood for the balconies, openings and cladding on the upper sections. The frontages will be covered with mineral render in warm, natural colours that echo the local buildings.

Fulfil the dream of owning a property in the mountains

The Akoya residence offers 32 warmly comfortable flats, with a spacious layout and generous views. The warmth of wood, the character of stone and the nobility of copper combine harmoniously in both shared and private spaces. From the beautifully appointed flats, ranging from 1- to 4bedroom duplexes, from 38 to 123m2, fully furnished, equipped and decorated with the utmost attention to detail, the landscape stretches out to the horizon, with the peaks in the line of sight. Here, just a stone's throw from the slopes and the shopping centre, the Akoya residence offers the promise of holidays that combine quality and authenticity.
In terms of practicalities, the flats offer covered parking, private cellars and ski lockers, but the best way to spend the end of the day and a relaxing après-ski is in the 800 m2 wellness area.
