Lux* La Baraquette Resort and Residences is a stunning new seafront resort planned for the Languedoc–Roussillon region of the South of France, featuring its own working vineyard. Located adjacent to the bustling city of Montpellier, the resort will open in 2023.
Offering a modern twist on French living, the resort’s architecture was designed by Slow Life Architects to be cohesive with the traditional buildings in the area, many of them dating back to the 12th century. The resort was developed by Propriétés & Co to extend the fishing village of Marseillan.
The UNESCO Heritage site of Marseillan is perhaps one of the oldest French towns founded in the sixth century B.C. It is known for its wine production today and is the largest wine-producing area in the world.
The development will include 133 studios to four-bedroom stylish apartment residences, 30 Mediterranean patio villas, as well as four spectacular waterfront villas. Prices range from mid $350,000 for a one-bedroom Garden Suite to $5.3 million for a luxurious Waterfront Villa.
The residences range from one-bedroom garden suites and larger apartments to the ultimate villas in the Waterfront Collection. Each of the four villas will feature private underground parking, a large basement with a state-of-the-art cinema, billiards room, a private wine cave, and a sauna. The villas will also feature a private elevator and a suspended fireplace.
Outdoor features of the villas include a private Jacuzzi, an infinity pool, and a ground-floor barbecue area, with a stainless steel sink and an outdoor fire pit, as well as an expansive terrace and pergola on the upper floor, all with gorgeous views of the resorts working, private vineyard, and the Thau lagoon beyond.
Lux* La Baraquette will be part of a large working vineyard, managed by the Seigneurie de Peyrat wine domain, a top winemaker in the region, and will provide villa owners with access to the vineyards to participate.
Owners will have direct access to LUX* La Baraquette’s 11-acre vineyard and Wine Academy, which includes winemaking courses and personal wine storage areas. A Nautical Club is also part of the offering.
The development overlooks the world famous oyster beds of the Thau Lagoon, home to over 700 Mediterranean species including 18 varieties of shellfish, including the popular Pink Diamond oysters, a delicacy in this region.
Other properties offered by LUX* Resorts & Hotels include locations in Mauritius, Maldives, Ile de la Reunion, China, with new launches coming in 2023 in Vietnam, and France.
