Propriétés & Co

Propriétés & Co. has developed resort and residential communities with a total value over €500 million. The success of these properties has been made possible by the close working relationship our team always takes care to establish with government officials, local communities, financial partners, and hospitality brands, among other important stakeholders in the regions where we work.

With an almost two-decade track record of success developing one-of-a-kind resorts and branded residential communities in the European sunbelt, Propriétés & Co. offers a depth and breadth of expertise that business partners and local communities can trust. The company's seasoned senior executives bring complementary skill sets and experience to the mission of developing resorts and residential communities that create value not only for the buyers and guests of the properties but also for the residents and business owners of the surrounding communities.


We create resorts and residential developments that inspire people to make the most of every day and transform local communities. Across the European sunbelt, we pursue coastal or inland sites with untapped lifestyle, experiential, and economic potential. Our special expertise is unleashing that potential through innovative master planning, thoughtful positioning, strategy and design, and powerful partnerships with global hospitality brands as well as local vendors, craftspeople, and suppliers.


We are storytellers who use the medium of imaginatively designed resorts and communities to weave authentic stories of culture and cuisine, history and contemporary life, wellness and time well-spent with family and friends. We believe in the power of nature to bring us back to our own true nature and so we create places that celebrate natural beauty. We believe ‘The Good Life’ is an experience, not a possession, and so we create opportunities for people to take new adventures in some of the world’s most inspiring landscapes.


We believe in sustainable placemaking – communities that are purpose-built to last and relate harmoniously to their physical, environmental, historic, and economic context while delivering an exceptional lifestyle to the people who buy, live in, work in, and visit them. We take our cues from each unique site rather than impose our will on them and we seek out ways to build on and enhance existing infrastructure. We engage in a process through which we arrive at design solutions and development strategies that reference heritage and culture while offering a thoroughly contemporary lifestyle.
