LUX* La Baraquette Delivering Attainable Five-Star Luxury in France’s Largest Wine Region
Construction at LUX* La Baraquette, a picturesque new waterfront resort in the charming port town of Marseillan by luxury developer Propriétés & Co, is progressing well, with the first phase of residences taking shape. Designed specifically to suit a diverse range of budgets and lifestyles, a collection of Garden Suites and Apartments, as well as Patio and Waterfront Villas are available to purchase off-plan from as little as €300,000.
Luxury homes, with designer interiors and set in beautiful locations often command a premium that make them unattainable to a number of purchasers. However, LUX* La Baraquette, situated in the exclusive Occitanie (Languedoc) region of southern France, provides the location and superior interior designs by Lázaro Rosa Violan (Amazonico, Mayfair and Soho House, Barcelona), whilst retaining a competitive entry price, as well as an impressive range of privileges including membership to the development’s very own vineyard and Wine Academy.
One of France’s best keep secrets, the Occitanie region is considered less travelled than Bordeaux, with far fewer tourists than Provence, retaining a sense of exclusivity. The area is considered to be the real South of France, producing some of the country’s best wines, benefitting from 135 miles of coastline, boasting six UNESCO World Heritage sites, all combining to create a calm and tranquil lifestyle.
Situated on the edge of the Étang de Thau, LUX* La Baraquette comprises 22 Garden Suites, 133 Apartments, 30 Patio Villas and 4 spectacular Waterfront Villas, each complemented by an unrivalled package of benefits regardless of price.
Each residence has been thoughtfully designed by award-winning Slow Life Architects from Barcelona, and with interiors by internationally renowned designer Lázaro Rosa Violan. These bright and spacious residences blend together the colours, textures and mood of the Mediterranean; delivering the epitome of French elegance with sleek, modern comfort and convenience.
LUX* La Baraquette’s Garden Suites are the most intimate residences on offer, combining an idyllic lifestyle with incredible value. The Garden Suites are generously proportioned, ranging in size from 538 to 914 sq.ft, with grassed terraces framed by locally sourced stone walls, and upper floor Suites all equipped with private decked balconies and expansive views of the estate gardens.
The Apartments, ranging from studios to four-bedrooms, have been inspired by the traditional architecture of the elegant ‘Maisons de Vignerons’ of Marseillan and the chic ambience of the neighbouring port-town. Apartments range in size from 667 to 2,421 sq.ft. and come with additional parking and storage areas.
The Patio Villas are inspired by the architecture of the region’s farmhouses – blending traditional design with minimalist interiors. Each Patio Villas is built around a private walled courtyard with an expansive garden area, a private plunge pool and stunning views from a large rooftop terrace; understated luxury and seclusion at the heart of the village.
Centred around a new hotel by LUX*, La Baraquette’s residents will have VIP access to all the hotel facilities, including its health spa, multiple restaurants and concierge. On top of this, residents will have direct access to La Baraquette’s 11-acre vineyard and Wine Academy, which includes one-to-one harvest experiences, winemaking courses and personal wine storage areas.
The package also includes membership to La Baraquette’s Nautical Club, maintenance and housekeeping services and purchasers have the option to reclaim 20% VAT on their entire purchase by signing up to the development’s management contract.
Jean-Francois Garneau of Propriétés & Co, comments; “At LUX* La Baraquette we have designed a playful, colourful and relaxed resort, one that is authentic to the area and yet offers all the convenience and luxury associated with a 5* hotel.
We have produced a broad range of residences, in terms of architectural style, size, location and price point, so we offer many options for purchasers to enjoy life here. The additional opportunity to reclaim 20% VAT on the purchase is a huge bonus, and the shortage of high-end holiday rental homes means that LUX* La Baraquette is well placed to capitalise on the region’s rapidly growing tourism industry.”
Offering a range of properties suited to a variety of budgets and lifestyles, hassle-free property management and a rental scheme offering exceptional investment and the option to reclaim 20% VAT, LUX* La Baraquette is one of the region’s most attractive residential offerings. The villas and apartments are sold fully furnished, with a hassle-free furniture package.

Marseille Vieux Port Masterplan – 8 Mar 2012
Marseille’s Vieux Port, one of the great Mediterranean ports, is about to be transformed. Work has started on Michel Desvigne’s and Foster + Partners’ competition-winning masterplan for its regeneration. The project will reclaim the quaysides as a civic space, creating new informal venues for performances and events and removing traffic to create a safe, semi-pedestrianised public realm.
