What about purchases of $ 3.25 million currently in France, Spain and Switzerland?


For international buyers looking for a vacation home or pied-à-terre, the search often comes down to one factor foremost: location, location, location. In this week’s look at global luxury real estate, I’ve taken a look at what’s for sale for around $ 3.25 million in France, Spain, and the more coveted from Switzerland.
From a romantic apartment in Paris to a modern tour de force in Valence, here’s a look at what’s on the market at this price:

Paris, France

This sunny apartment is located in the Notre-Dame-des-Champs district of Paris, an area named for the historic Roman Catholic Church residing there. Considered one of the most welcoming family districts in Paris, the site is home to exceptional schools and the Jardin du Luxembourg (translation: Jardin du Luxembourg), a magical park-like setting created in 1612 by Marie de Médicis, the widow of King Henry IV.

Traits: A large entrance hall leads directly into the living room, which has a balcony and an east-facing view of the surroundings. Built-in shelves and storage fill the back wall of the living room, while a fireplace with a marble surround sits across the room. Beautiful herringbone wood floors run throughout the residence, which includes four bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, and a separate kitchen.

Other advantages: Two of the apartment’s four bedrooms share an independent entrance with a lift and a separate bathroom. The 20th century building also has its own on-site caretaker.

Price: $ 3.31 million (approximately)

Godella, Valencia, Spain

A masterful combination of stone and glass, this modern villa is found in the Campovilar de Godella, a luxury resort located approximately 2.5 miles from the city of Valencia. A 19th century castle sits at the heart of the development, which is home to over 2,500 residents. The neighborhood is home to the prestigious British school known as Los Olivos. Over half a dozen world-class golf courses are also within walking distance.

Traits: The two-story home was designed for indoor-outdoor living and features glass walls that flow directly onto the covered patio. A small breakfast room with a garden view sits off the sparkling chef’s kitchen, which features custom cabinetry and a large island. A total of four bedrooms and five bathrooms are found in over 3,200 square feet of organized living space.

Other advantages: A two story expanse of glass in the living room serves both as a statement piece and floods the living room with natural light. Glass walls also line the family room and master bedroom.

Price: $ 3.366 million (approximately)

Suchy, Vaud, Switzerland

The charming village of Suchy is located in the canton of Vaud, an area teeming with historic architecture, gastronomic delights and natural wonders of the Swiss Alps. This contemporary chalet-style residence is located 20 minutes from Lausanne, the Vaud capital, and 10 minutes from the magnificent district of Yverdon-les-Bains.

Traits: High ceilings, angled beams, and a sophisticated design aesthetic define the renovated village house with seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. Beyond the entrance is a stone clad entryway that opens into an atrium-shaped space with a contemporary wrought-iron staircase. Further inside, the floor plan is mainly devoted to an open plan space on the first floor, integrating a living room, dining room and chef’s kitchen into the common area.

Other advantages: A large wood-burning fireplace in the common area is perfect for cold winter nights. A large skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows on the back wall keep the space well lit. A private garage and additional outdoor parking mean there is plenty of space for families and friends.

Price: $ 3.2 million (approximately)
