Buy-back guarantee launched for French chateau properties

A new buy-back guarantee for properties among a 19th century chateau in Limousin, in France's Lake District, has been launched by Barrasford and Bird Worldwide.

The majestic chateau set in 90 hectares comes with its own stone-built French village and another 16th century chateau forming part of the Halcyon Retreat, a luxury golf and spa resort.

Offering an 18-hole golf course, world-class spa, swimming complex and fishing lakes, Halcyon Retreat will become a five-star family destination including 19 luxury hotel suites, equestrian facilities, on-site boulangerie and delicatessen, wellness café and restaurant, lounge and bars, honeymoon chateau and cycling and walking tracks amidst its surrounding countryside.

Properties are available from full to fractional ownership, ranging from 1- to 3-bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, kitchenette, lounge and come furnished to a five-star standard.

Robin Barrasford, managing director or Barrasford and Bird believes; “Halcyon Retreat is a different type of experience. It will provide all the things that people go to that area for - the walking, the cycling, the lakes, the scenery, the history and the essence of rural France, but will also provide that touch of luxury and all the extras that will make a really restful holiday.”

The Halcyon Retreat properties currently being sold off-plan and below market value are offered with the option of a 180% buy-back guarantee, promising an 80% profit nine years from completion and also come with a guaranteed rental returns option and interest return on deposits offering buyers even more incentive to own a piece of France's heritage.

Sandy Wells, one of the first buyers at the retreat comments, “I have found the whole experience much better than I expected. Everyone I have come into contact with at Barrasford and Bird have been very friendly yet very professional. I have been impressed with the care that seems to be going into the planning ~ and the fact that I am kept in the loop during the process.”
