for that property, I wouldn't consider selling unless a massive SHTF. rather keep it in family for further generations, and they can decide what to do with it.

question - how would that affect my taxation here in Suisse? if I took french (CHF based) mortgage, swiss tax office probably wouldn't know about it.
if swiss mortgage would be taken (requiring 20% of cash upfront), then I guess I would have to declare it.
The CH tax office will only know what you tell them.
You will have a French tax liability on the rental income & possibly a Swiss one in addition.
I don't think you have calculated the Heating costs, Service Charges & taxes in owning a property in the French Alps.
