Leading super-prime real estate specialist Beauchamp Estates, the agency of choice for ultra-high-net-worth individuals, has announced the opening of a new French office in Saint Tropez, one of the Cote d’Azur’s most famous locations.
Complimenting the agency’s existing principal office in Cannes, the new Beauchamp Estates Saint Tropez office is located in a prime position of the town (2 Avenue du Maréchal Foch) on the Place des Lices, moments from Hotel Byblos.
It consists of a newly refurbished white stucco and glass fronted boutique office and consultation space, where clients can view the area’s finest sales and lettings instructions, and discuss their property requirements, with COVID-safe procedures in place.
Beauchamp Estates Saint Tropez provides luxury sales, rental and property management services, in addition to services to assist with both long and short stays, including housekeepers, chefs, private tours, cars and drivers, boat charter and private tutors.
The office will form an important part of the Beauchamp Estates international network, which includes offices in London, (Mayfair, Marylebone and St John’s Wood), Greece (Mykonos), Israel (Tel Aviv) and an associate office in the United States of America (New York City), in addition to the well established Cannes office, located moments from the Croisette.
The Saint Tropez opening comes less than a year after the opening of the Tel Aviv office and is part of the group’s ongoing expansion which includes a desire for a USA West coast office and partners in South America and Asia.
Beauchamp Estates St Tropez is headed by Elodie Marchi Capizzi, who joins Beauchamp Estates from Savills, with over twelve years experience in sales and seasonal lettings. Elodie, a native of St Tropez, graduated in Real Estate and is currently studying for a second degree in property valuation.
Her detailed knowledge of the local market will be invaluable to Beauchamp Estates’ clients, as they search for the ideal Cote d’Azur property to purchase or rent. Elodie is supported by both Regis Ramette, Sales Director and Adrien Willing-Lamy, Managing Director of Beauchamp Estates France.
Adrien Willing-Lamy, Managing Director, Beauchamp Estates France said, “The French Riviera real estate market is made up of a series of luxury ‘micro-markets’, which span a not inconsiderable geographical area. The superb coast line and lifestyle add to the special charm of these sunny places and the reputation of locations such as Ramatuelle, Saint Tropez, Theoule-sur-Mer, Cannes, Mougins, Cap d’Antibes, Saint Jean Cap-Ferrat, Cap Martin and Monaco. Prime property in many of these areas remains scarce, ensuring a resilience in terms of price.”
Willing-Lamy added, “Interest has increased across the region and we wanted to ensure that we continued to provide clients with the very best and efficient service and in order to deliver this a further office in the region was needed. Alongside our Cannes office, Saint Tropez is an excellent location since the Cote d’Azur coastline extends to 115 km (71 miles) and having offices in these pole locations will allow us to always be able to meet clients quickly.”
“Clients are particularly attracted by the sea. They want to be as close to the water as possible, with enough land to be sheltered from the crowds, particularly if the property is not located right on the seafront. Saint-Tropez and surrounding areas boast spectacular villas, nestled in secluded locations with stupendous views on the Mediterranean Sea.”
“We have seen the vacation rental market starting early this year, with some clients already checked-in to villas. In addition to rental periods being longer those purchasing property are doing so with slightly increased budgets and a focus on buying a home offering high quality outside space and outside living facilities”
“We are delighted to have Elodie as part of the Beauchamp Estates France team and have already received a number of exciting new instructions in the Saint Tropez area.”
Gary Hersham, Founding Director of Beauchamp Estates said, “Beauchamp Estates has built an international reputation for excellence, established through hard work, high levels of customer service and attention to our clients’ needs. The Cote d’Azur has long been a popular destination for many national and international clients and the opening of Beauchamp Estates Saint Tropez will enable us to continue to deliver the high standards of customer service across the Cote d’Azur that our clients expect from Beauchamp Estates.”
The Cote d’Azur and French Caps are renown for glamour: eternally and effortlessly chic, with a ‘joie de vivre’ that is the envy of the world: the region offers an un paralleled lifestyle, with superb coastline, beaches, and on average over 310 days of sunshine a year.
The region also has a wide range of congress (convention) facilities and an international reputation for its social and nightlife: Brigitte Bardot put the small fishing town on the international map when she appeared in the 1956 film And God Created Woman, since which time St Tropez has been a by-word for international glamour: fans include with Elton John, Ivana Trump, Joan Collins, Kate Moss, Jay-z and
Beyonce, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bono, Nicola Sarkozy, Vanessa Paradis and Georgio Armani, with many choosing to purchase a permanent home in the region.
