A beautiful resort, Wyndham Halcyon Retreat is not only a fabulous vacation destination but also offers the opportunity to invest in real estate in the heart of the French countryside. It features spacious, upscale accommodations as well as an outstanding range of facilities for adults and children alike, all centered around a majestic French chateau in a stunning natural setting.
In 2011 a well-established UK developer purchased the French chateau originally built in 1898. Designed in a 17th Century Louis XIV architectural style, it encompassed 220 acres with two lakes and a few buildings, including a 16th century turreted chateau and the main chateau.
The main chateau with 54 rooms was in disrepair but has since been completely refurbished. The main chateau opened in 2012 as a stand-alone 19-room hotel with a fine dining restaurant, outdoor pool and tennis courts.
Now Halcyon Retreat is becoming part of the Wyndham Hotel and Resorts, the world’s largest hotel group. Wyndham has chosen the chateau as its flagship hotel in France and plans to promote it to its 69-million person database of travelers.
The developer is now focused on converting the 16th century turreted chateau into a full-service spa and expanding it to four times its original size.
The developer is also creating a French village named “Le Village” that will consist of traditional stone-period buildings. It will have a total of 195 units including studios, and one- and two-bedroom units.
When the resort is complete, guests will be able to enjoy a game of golf at the resort’s exclusive 18-hole course or relax at the lavish world-class spa. The whole family will love the extensive indoor adventure zone and swimming complex including pools, slides and flumes.
Spend an afternoon fishing in the well-stocked lakes or take the resort’s mountain bikes out to explore the network of cycle paths in the area. Stroll around the on-site lakes or enjoy a lengthier walk into the surrounding countryside. Equestrian pursuits are also popular in the Limousin, which has many well-maintained horse paths.
Savor mouth-watering cuisine in a majestic setting at the château’s exclusive fine dining restaurant, relish a fresh and healthy meal at the spa’s wellness café or sample delicious a-la-carte dishes served at the family restaurant.
