Propriétés & Co Announces Partnership with LUX* Resorts & Hotels with the unveiling of LUX* La Baraquette, Resort & Residences, France

LUX Resorts & Residences is the Mediterranean’s Most Prestigious New Real Estate and Resort Development*

Propriétés & Co is delighted to announce its partnership with LUX* Resorts and Hotels with the unveiling of LUX* La Baraquette, Resort & Residences, France – an exclusive Mediterranean resort development within a unique coastal enclave, in one of France’s most seductive destinations.

A new concept for the region and a long-anticipated first project in France for LUX* Resorts and Hotels – LUX* La Baraquette Resort & Residences combines an exceptional setting with an idyllic way of life.

Located in Marseillan in the Occitanie region, on the shore of the Thau lagoon, playing off a backdrop of vineyards, delightful towns and villages and easy access to the region’s exquisite beaches ; this area is often referred to as the ‘real’ South of France.

Propriétés & Co and LUX* Hotels & Resorts will position the new resort – hotel and residential offering – to create a fresh and unforgettable experience that merges traditional French flair with a relaxed and distinctly LUX*, vibe.

LUX* La Baraquette, Resort & Residences, in addition to the hotel, offers 189 stylish branded residential units – villas, apartments, and suites – in a resort that boasts working vineyards, expansive pools and gardens, a central village square with unique shops, a wine academy and cellars, all in a car-free environment, providing residents with a taste of authentic French living.

Upon completion of the resort in 2021, branded villa and apartment owners will also be able to enjoy the facilities on offer at the five star hotel with its innovative dining venues, an exclusive spa with signature treatments, indoor-outdoor fitness center, lounge and bars, as well as cross-functional event space. Complete with these top tier amenities, the resort will provide owners and guests an unparalleled destination experience in France. (See notes to editors).

Properties at LUX* La Baraquette, Resort & Residences, are the rarest of real estate acquisition opportunities in the South of France, affording its residents a relaxed and authentic lifestyle with a raft of owners’ privileges. With full property management and support, low operating costs and hassle-free rental lettings, this is a worthwhile investment.

Designed by Barcelona’s award-winning Slow Life Architects to bring together the colours, textures and mood of the Mediterranean, the villas and apartments will sensitively integrate a sense of community with local culture and the natural environment. An unrivalled collection of branded residences are available ranging from one bedroom garden suites to exclusive five bedroom waterfront villas. ‘Light, spacious, natural, local’ – the four guiding principles for the design – results in French elegance in conjunction with sleek, modern comfort.

Miguel Espada, Founder and CEO of Propriétés & Co comments: ”We are particularly excited of announcing our partnership with LUX*. They have a stellar track record of delivering a unique vacation experience. Their ability to innovate, and deliver consistently on the promise of a different kind of Luxury impressed us, and our shared beliefs and DNA were decisive in appointing them to manage the resort. LUX* Resort & Residences, La Baraquette will be a unique addition to our region, to France as well as to the European branded residential offerings”

Speaking on this exciting new partnership, Paul Jones, CEO of LUX* Resorts & Hotels adds:
“We are thrilled to be in partnership with Miguel Espada & his talented development team. It was love at first sight to discover the quaint & peaceful coastal town of Marseillan & its surroundings. The site of the resort being right on the water with only vineyards in between makes the whole environment unique. Our LUX* brand has captured the hearts of the European vacationers especially those from France, UK & Germany. They will be very excited with this news and the opportunity to acquire a LUX* residence at the initial attractive pricing. We are looking forward to expanding LUX* elsewhere in Europe in the near future, notably thanks to our strategic partnership with Propriétés & Co”.
