Pleasure and investment, choose both by Jean-Thomas Olano

In the world of luxury property, few investments combine pleasure and profitability as harmoniously as those offered by Rising Stone. The brainchild of founder and CEO Jean-Thomas Olano, Rising Stone offers properties in idyllic locations, including the finest resorts in the Alps and southern Portugal. Pleasure and investment are built around a commitment to excellence. The "Lac Bleu" programme is the perfect embodiment of this desire for a luxurious escape, for pleasure renewed every day, but also for the potential for tangible financial returns and significant tax benefits.


Rising Stone's properties stand out for their exceptional potential to increase in value. Thanks to their strategic location in the most sought-after destinations and construction to the highest quality standards, these properties enjoy significant appreciation in value over time. At the same time, the constant demand for top-of-the-range holiday rentals in areas such as Méribel ensures attractive rental yields, turning each acquisition into a truly successful investment.


Beyond the figures and the purely financial aspect, investing in a Rising Stone property means choosing to create unforgettable moments. Whether it's winter sports, with privileged access to the best ski slopes in the world, or a cosy reunion around an open fire, our properties are designed to bring families and friends together in absolute comfort. The pleasure of sharing these experiences makes each stay a precious memory, enriching your life and that of your loved ones.
Pleasure is the common thread running through every project from the outset, according to Jean-Thomas Olano :

"What drives me is to start with a blank sheet of paper and, five years later, be invited by my client to have a drink on his terrace with his family and friends. We're in it for the long haul, with some fascinating encounters at the end of the day. I'm lucky enough to be able to create something beautiful and please people by pleasing myself..."

Jean-Thomas Olano, founder of Rising Stone, has always believed that luxury real estate should transcend generations. "Our chalets and flats are not just built for today; they are a legacy for tomorrow," he says. This means that each purchase is a stone added to the edifice of your family heritage, destined to be cherished and valued by future generations. They will enjoy coming together and succeeding each other in this place filled with history, your history.


As well as benefiting from an exceptional setting and an attractive value-added potential, investing in Rising Stone offers attractive tax advantages. The schemes in place, particularly for rental investment in the mountains or in the para-hotel sector, can offer significant tax reductions, making the purchase even more profitable.


Nestling in the heart of the Trois Vallées, the world's most prestigious ski area, Rising Stone's new "Lac Bleu" development stands out as an exceptional nugget of luxury real estate. Designed with craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, this project offers residences where luxury and elegance reign supreme. Each chalet offers breathtaking views of the Alpine scenery, harmoniously blending modern comfort with mountain tradition. Aimed at those seeking a prestigious retreat, the Lac Bleu prestige development promises not only an idyllic living environment but also significant value-add potential thanks to its strategic location and top-of-the-range finishes. This new development embodies Rising Stone's expertise in creating properties that are not just places to live, but truly enriching living experiences.
