The first thing any property owner should buy for their property is home insurance. If you own a property in Courchevel that you tend ro rent out you need to ensure your insurance has a clause that will cover both you and your tenants for accidental damage.
Normally, insurance policies in France do require you to pay an excess in order to make a claim, therefore it is common practice for property owners to take a security deposit from their guests in order to protect them against damages.
It is possible to get your home insurance directly from the insurance providers such as AXA, Aviva or Generali. However you can normally save time by going to a broker who will be able to secure you a good deal.
Like the UK there are a few comparison websites, however to use these you will need to be able to speak French.
