Interview Philippe Cannatella

Gusto Family Group Founder

Auron, the jewel of the Southern Alps

As a restaurateur who has developed expertise through eight establishments, my professional and family life is rooted in Nice.

My family and I are enthusiastic regulars at the Auron ski resort, less than an hour and a half from our home. The slopes are of exceptional quality, making the ski area a real gem, enhanced by major recent investments in ski lifts and snow cannons.

Summer in Auron is simply magical, nestling in the heart of the Mercantour Park. The wealth of landscapes, fauna and flora makes it a unique destination.

Rising Stone takes the resort upmarket

Although we've owned a flat in Auron for a number of years, we were looking for more space, comfort and quality. Meeting Jean Thomas OLANO in Méribel was the deciding factor. Rising Stone's creations embody the quality and rigour of mountain real estate.

So my wife and I decided to invest in the Vivaldi development, reserving a chalet flat even before selling our current property. As well as the strategic location, the ingenious layout and the quality of the materials and equipment, we were looking forward to the benefits of a true second home with services worthy of a 5-star hotel.

Between pleasure and investment, choose both

This decision is not just a matter of pleasure, but is part of a process of securing our assets and passing them on to our children. After an in-depth analysis of the investment conditions, I'm convinced that this acquisition represents an excellent investment in our heritage, one that meets our aspirations and secures our children's future.

Faced with the challenges of building on the coast and in the Mercantour Park, I am aware that the Vivaldi sur Auron development represents a unique opportunity, combining scale and quality in the exceptional setting of this resort, which is currently enjoying a boom.

Auron, future site of the 2030 Olympic Games

The forthcoming 2030 Winter Olympics will bring it all the limelight it deserves.

For my family and I, investing in the Vivaldi development in Auron is not just a financial decision, it's a total immersion in an exceptional mountain setting. We're convinced that this decision goes far beyond a simple property purchase; it's an opportunity to experience unique moments at the heart of this resort, to create unforgettable memories and to enjoy an unrivalled quality of life.
