As with the Provence-Alpes-Cote-d’Azur region, property prices in Rhone-Alpes vary wildly. Broadly speaking, the inland Rhone area offers cheaper properties than the admittedly more expensive Alpine ski resorts – however, the price of the latter is offset by their proximity with the mountains, good transport links, enduring popularity and well-developed tourism industry.
Rhone-Alpes consists of eight departments:
• Ain: Bourg-en-Bresse, Belley, Gex, Nantua
• Ardeche: Tour-sur-Rhone, Privas
• Drome: Montelimar, Valence
• Haute-Savoie: Annecy, Chamonix, Megeve
• Isere: Grenoble
• Loire: Saint-Etienne
• Rhone: Lyon
• Savoie: Aix-les-Bains, Chambery, Courchevel
Ardeche is the cheapest department – prices here average around €150,000. This compares to an average of €341,000 in Haute-Savoie, Rhone-Alpes’ most expensive department by far.
