A new French resort offering a combination of hotel accommodation and luxury residences has been launched by developer Barrasford and Bird Worldwide.
The Wyndham Halcyon Retreat Golf and Spa Resort in Limousin, in central France, is a 225-room hotel to be franchised through Wyndham Hotel Group. It also offers the opportunity to purchase luxury residences as fractional ownerships with benefits. Purchasers can swap any unused time in their properties to travel to destinations around the world through membership of The Registry Collection, a luxury holiday programme from RCI.
Robin Barrasford, managing director, Barrasford and Bird, said: “Working with Wyndham and RCI gives owners of our residential leisure properties a truly unique advantage while delivering exceptional experiences and value. Our hotel guests will also benefit from the additional amenities on resort that come as part of the village community developed around the residential and fractional properties.”
Old meets new in stunning landscape
Due to open as a Wyndham resort in early 2017, the Wyndham Halcyon Retreat Golf and Spa Resort is set in 220 acres of stunning landscape within the historic Château de la Cazine in the Limousin region of France, ideally located less than an hour’s drive from Limoges international airport.
Two 16th century turreted chateaux form the striking centrepiece of the resort, housing a luxury hotel and world-class spa centre. In addition, the resort boasts extensive leisure facilities, including a children’s adventure zone, equestrian centre, two fishing lakes and an 18-hole golf course.
Guests can choose from a wide range of fine dining options, including a Michelin-starred restaurant and a sommelier’s wine and cocktail bar. The resort’s ‘Le Village’ area has a boulangerie, delicatessen, boutiques and more, putting an authentic French community at the heart of the resort.
Meeting all holiday needs
Through its franchise with Wyndham Hotel Group and affiliation with The Registry Collection, the Wyndham Halcyon Retreat Golf and Spa Resort will offer diverse holiday options, from exceptional nightly stays to full fractional ownership.
Owners who purchase a high-end residence at Wyndham Halcyon Retreat will be provided with a membership into The Registry Collection, the world’s largest luxury network of its kind, which will allow them to swap time at their property to travel to hundreds of other high-end resorts within the network.
Upon opening, Wyndham Halcyon Retreat Golf and Spa Resort will participate in Wyndham Rewards, the simple-to-use, new loyalty programme from Wyndham Hotel Group offering members a generous points earning structure along with a flat, free night redemption rate – the first of its kind for a major rewards programme.
