Leave your property to Prestige Gestion, what does it involve? How does our agency work? All the questions that you, the owners, have, we answer here.
Formation of the rental price of your property
The answer is yes, we mainly adapt the rental prices according to and above all to the French holiday calendar. Indeed, 80% of the Alpe d’Huez’ clientele, and therefore of the agency, remains essentially French. Holidays in foreign countries are not really taken into account but make it possible to attract this international clientele over lower periods.
Of course, we adapt prices according to the events, especially for the summer season with the emblematic events: Alpe d’Huzes, Marmotte, Tour de France.
In winter and for the comedy film festival, not really, despite a privileged relationship with the director we know well. All actors, directors and producers remain housed in hotels. For this event, we mainly work with large partners who are exclusively interested in large chalets, adapted for business tourism (large stay that can accommodate a certain number of people, ideal for workshops). Finally, the only event for which there is a real price adjustment is the Tomorrowland festival. We maintain a very privileged relationship with them in order to welcome all their very high-end customers, so prices are studied accordingly.
This is the image of the Prestige Gestion agency. We will not have a policy of “breaking” prices. We are particularly vigilant in choosing our customers and positioning our services at the top end of the market.
We sometimes start negotiations on a week’s holiday but always in agreement with the owner. We would prefer to refuse a week’s rental if customers do not agree with the proposed product.
As a base, rentals remain by the week. Nevertheless, yes, during off-season periods and on request, we sometimes depart from the rule.
Rentals are from Saturday to Saturday, except in exceptional cases. Indeed, 90% of the clientele remains on this model.
As soon as possible. All the agency’s properties are systematically online and available at the end of each season for the following season.
Expertise of the agency. Native of the resort and expert in the field of high-end property management, the price lists are formed according to the property, location, positioning and market.
Future tenants, online ad and calendar management
We use an integrated management software that now has a customer base of 2000 people. The distribution of our properties goes above all through our agency’s website (offensive referencing strategy with our Webiaprod agency based in Grenoble) and then through the various dedicated platforms.
Platforms used: Total Homeway Group, airbnb. We also have agreements with certain partners in Haute-Savoie and Grenoble.
First of all, a quality website and above all a SEO strategy. Natural referencing via our web agency in Grenoble and Google Adwords referencing during the booking periods (July to January).
Qualitative promotion of each of the properties by taking pictures of a professional.
In addition and of course a close relationship with the agency’s loyal customers. Reservation from year to year and loyalty through a personalized welcome and the services offered to our customers.
No collaboration with this kind of travel agency. In my opinion, this is the opposite of what we do. No visibility on the customer, prices and quality of service offered.
With our partners, yes. We maintain privileged relationships that allow us to target, particularly for Tomorrowland and the film festival, the interested clientele and in accordance with the products we offer.
Exclusivity for Prestige Gestion is a point of honour. It is not possible, given our high-end business model, to work in collaboration with other agencies.
We risk conflict over the holding of the property, the clientele and the positioning of the product. In addition, we will currently be the only ones able to offer quality concierge services.
The Prestige Gestion agency will be there to assist you with quality management and an adapted clientele. It is not possible for us to make a commitment on a weekly volume.
For the reasons mentioned above, no.
For the points mentioned above, once the product is launched, we arrive at a number of weeks of rental ranging from 8 to 14 weeks on average. The base remaining for the winter is 10 weeks on average. Summer, on the other hand, remains very uncertain and more complicated on the Alpe d’Huez (winter destination). This is why the amounts of the weeks rented in the summer do not enter into our rental management estimates, we count them as “bonus” weeks.
All apartments and chalets are distributed in the same way on all our media. Of course, some products can leave faster than others. In order to ensure an optimal return for each of them, we invite each owner to consult us on the decoration of their apartments in order to satisfy the market demand. The decoration and furniture chosen are essential points that will allow future tenants to project themselves or not in the home, it is necessary to create the coup de coeur!
It is also important to respect the list of equipment provided by the agency, in order to maximize the tenant’s loyalty once on site. Of course, we try to distribute the bookings fairly among each owner of the same residence.
With regard to residences, each of them has advantages and disadvantages. There are customers for each of them according to their requirements and budgets. The station’s move upmarket also contributes to rental success in this area.
Indeed, as you say, we have an insert on the site for the promotion of the new residences. Especially for the White Eden this year. The Hamlet of Clotaire for next season.

Duration of the contract and conditions of termination
Management mandates are signed for a period of 1 year and tacitly renewed for a maximum of 10 years.
Management status and specific regime
An exclusive management mandate is concluded between the owners and the Prestige Gestion agency.
We determine together the conditions of rental of the property (price list).
We draw up an inventory of fixtures which will be signed by the tenants when they enter the premises, in order to protect the property from any damage caused during the rental week.
The specific Para-Hôtelier regime
The para-hotel regime is presented as an intermediary between furnished rental and the hotel business.
The owner delegates the services to a real estate agency.
The para-hotel regime imposes conditions, at least 3 or 4 services comparable to hotels:
– Breakfast in professional use
– End of stay cleaning included + regular cleaning of the premises
– Supply of household linen
– Personalized customer service…
The landlord is subject to VAT on the income from his furnished rentals and is entitled to recover VAT on his expenses and on the price of renovation work, for example.
As soon as the real estate agency or operator provides at least 3 of these 4 services, the latter falls under the para-hotels regime and not under the tax regime for furnished rental.
The advantage of the para-hôtelier: Cash-flow facility with a 20% VAT recovery

– A personalised welcome, with several contacts prior to the stay, on the day of the stay to establish the appointment, the welcome is made in the property with the handing over of the keys and the explanations inherent to the accommodation (operation of the equipment…), the taking of a deposit by credit card imprint. Then the day of departure for the recovery of the keys.
