Property Description

THE LOCATION The stunning village of Vezenobres, in the wine heartland of the South of France, is replete with medieval buildings and narrow, cobbled streets, so unsurprisingly has been nominated to be only the third village in the department of Gard to be listed as a prestigious Les Plus Beaux Villages de France. Fabulous restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets are all within walking distance, whilst the historic Roman city of Nimes and picturesque town of Uzes are both within a 30 minutes drive. The region is served by numerous airports and the TGV, with Nimes (30 mins), Montpellier (60 mins) and Marseilles (90 mins) all having regular and frequent flights from the UK.

THE PROPERTY Le Mas du Figuier is a magnificent, French farmhouse, built beautifully in light stone, framed with typical white shutters. It is surrounded by fig orchards, enjoying a delightfully private rural aspect, yet adjacent to all the necessary amenities of modern life. It has 7 large double bedrooms, and a separate 2-bed gite where the multilingual house manager lives to provide all-year-round security and assistance to owners. It has dining terraces, a pretty courtyard, a petanque pit and a beautiful, private, heated pool, with lush gardens completing the French idyll. There is a games room, an authentic wine cave, and numerous living areas. It is the ideal house for bringing all of your family and friends together: Le Ma du Figuier has it all.

CONCEPT With most people only spending 3-6 weeks per year in their second home, fractional ownership is becoming far more common with people not wanting to spend too much on somewhere they do not visit or live for a large part of the year. Additionally, owning overseas property can involve numerous hassles (and costs) that detract from the whole experience - here you just turn up and enjoy: beds made, towels clean, whole house immaculate, facilities ready for you, assisted by a helpful but discrete on site house manager. It is NOT a posh timeshare: you co-own the actual house, with the initial capital outlay reflecting this equity element. And you still get to use your house for several weeks per year. And critically, all the running costs are shared equally amongst owners.

PRICE There are just two fractions left to buy into Le Mas du Figuier: (1) 1/8th (12.5%) ownership for €166k (c€5k annual running costs), entitles owner to 6 weeks per year usage (2) 1/16th (6.25%) ownership for €83k (c€2500 annual running costs), entitles owner to 3 weeks per year usage
