Summer Sensation: South of France Eco-Friendly Leaseback Property

Think South of France and St Tropez, Cannes, Nice and Monaco will probably spring to mind but this summer all eyes are looking west of these traditional tourism destinations, to La Camargue – Western Europe’s largest river delta, just 1 hour from Marseille. French Leaseback Property

Covering some 930km, where the river Rhône meets the Mediterranean Sea, La Camargue occupies a coastal area between the Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence. Established as a national park and nature reserve in 1972, La Camargue contains exceptional bio-diversity with over 400 species of birds including the ubiquitous pink flamingos, the famous Camargue horses, unique breeds of bulls and now a new eco-friendly leaseback development.

Steven Worboys, MD of Experience International, the leaseback property experts, comments, “La Camargue remains one of the most unspoiled natural areas in the south of France. Already an established tourist destination with the French, the area is fast becoming popular with British holidaymakers and second property buyers not least due to the diverse fauna and flora, stunning vistas over the Rhône delta and ease of access from the UK and by air, rail and road.”

Due to its national park status, property development is limited in La Camargue with only a handful of truly eco-friendly properties available to purchase. One such development is the new Domaine des Flamants Roses leaseback residences. The 1, 2 and 3 bedroom cottage style properties are situated in the small charming village of Salin-de-Giraud, a stone’s throw from the chic coastal resort of Saintes-Marie-de-la-Mer and only 25 miles from historic Arles city centre.

Complimenting the natural landscape, Domaine des Flamants Roses is highly eco-friendly boasting an ecological rating of 145 out of 150 due to the use of recycled materials, natural building products, renewable energy and waste water recycling.

As Steve Worboys goes on to remark, “It’s not often that a property can truly be both eco-friendly and a good investment however Domaine des Flamants Roses ticks both boxes. As a leaseback property, owners can enjoy 4.08% guaranteed rental income for 18+ years as well as personal usage options.”

Prices start from €155,292 with a low deposit of only €1,000 required to secure a unit; in addition 100% finance is available, an attractive option which is becoming increasingly rare as French banks look to restrict lending.
