How To Earn A 12% Annualized Yield From Your Chateau In France

Chateau de la Cazine in Limousin, France, is a chateau on 90 hectares that has been purchased by a U.K. developer. The Chateau is being transformed from a modest hotel with an excellent restaurant to a full-fledged destination resort with a spa, a golf course, and a high-end restaurant.

In fact, the restaurant has been awarded its first Michelin Star, just 18 months after opening (no small feat).

The heart of the property is a “petit chateau” whose foundation dates back to the 12th century. This picture-postcard-perfect and very historic structure is being renovated into the new resort's luxury spa center and is expected to be an important draw.

However, the main event is the main chateau, imposing and grand, built in 1898 and every bit the picture of French chateau life. This building has been renovated already and is up and running as a boutique hotel with 18 deluxe rooms and the fine dining restaurant.

In addition to the main chateau and the petit chateau, the property includes several other large stone outbuildings, many of which are currently being converted into a collection of rental apartments. This work is expected to be completed in the next 12 to 18 months.

Other of the outbuildings will also be renovated and some new structures will be built to create additional studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and even three-bedroom apartments, all of which will be operated as rental units. In all, when the project is completely built out, the property will include about 140 rental units.

Your Investment Opportunity—Up To 12% IRR Over 10 Years

This particular French leaseback opportunity that I've recently discovered is the best I've seen in the past 15+ years that I've been paying attention to leasebacks.

The Chateau Cazine in Limosin, France, is being transformed from a modest hotel with an excellent restaurant to a full-fledged destination resort with a spa, a golf course, and that same excellent restaurant.

As part of the transformation, buildings around the main chateau are being renovated and built in order to accommodate the extra visitors expected.

The newest building among those includes one-bedroom and studio units...these are the units currently on offer that will net you up to 12% IRR over 10 years.

Multiple Options For Purchase, Starting As Low As £11,500...

You have two options for how to invest in the Chateau Cazine leaseback offer. You can select from a variety of fractionals, starting as low as £11,500 (currently the exchange rate is £1=US$1.61, so a little less than US$18,500). The other option is to purchase one of the full units on offer, which range from £130,000 to £330,000.

The fractional and full-purchase options come with projected annual yields growing to 18% and 22% respectively over 10 years.

Finally, if you're investing with U.S. dollars, you should note that this investment is made in British pounds. Timing investments to currency rates is difficult, and we don't recommend you try. This investment provides decent currency diversification if all your assets are in your home currency otherwise (assuming your home currency isn't the British pound).

The developer owns the property outright and has no debt. Further, they have partnered with an established hotel operator, Wyndham Hotels, to manage and operate the resort which will help to maximize hotel revenues. That, along with the fact that the hotel is already up and running and enjoying very good occupancy rates, means you've got an investment for which the overall risk is suitably mitigated.

One Of The Best Leaseback Opportunities In Years...

Given the level of returns and the standard of the project, this is the most interesting French leaseback program we've found in the 15 years we've been paying attention to and reporting on these opportunities.

The Chateau de la Cazine is an extraordinary property and is included in the Chateau and Hotel Collection. It has also won a 2013 Trip Advisor award for Excellence. This is one way that guests looking for unique and interesting places to stay in France will find it. The chateau is being developed as a spa and golf resort, meaning those are two other ways potential guests will find it (when they search for spa or golf properties in France). This will also be an ideal venue for corporate events and weddings.

The local Limoges airport is served by Ryanair from London, Leeds, Liverpool, East Midlands, and Bristol in the U.K. as well as a couple of low-cost French airlines. Low-cost airline access has opened up many real estate and tourist markets in Europe.

The developer owns the property outright and has no debt. Bundle that with the buyback option, the 15 years of guaranteed returns, and the fact that the hotel is already up and running and enjoying very good occupancy rates, and you've got an investment for which the overall risk is nicely mitigated.

Furthermore, you are not likely to find another leaseback property anywhere in France offering this level of return.
