It just made me think about that arrogant odious oaf Prince Andrew and his equally odious ex and their 14m chalet. Wonder who paid for it, he allegedly only gets a naval pension of 30k a year and money from mummy to run his office.

It could easily be Swiss watching foreign millionaires die from their chalet

Loads of building land in the Avalanche path got sold to non resident foreigners from around 1970. After a heavy storm loads pf property around the Rouge get evacuated & the millionaires end up roughing it in the air raid shelter by the sports centre.
