Art of Living

French art de vivre is firing the imagination now more than ever. BARNES has always striven to celebrate this heritage. This art de vivre extends to numerous domains, whether fine architecture and properties, art, yachting or vineyards. We invite you to embark on this journey accompanied by our teams, who are on hand to provide expertise and consultancy services to ensure your projects combine pleasure and profitability.

Castles & manors

Perched on rocky peaks or nestled on the banks of a winding river, majestic or understated, châteaux and manors contribute to the international prestige of French heritage. Historic and architectural legacies, they are living witnesses to a centuries-old know-how. Turn back time and live your very own fairytale.

Country estates

In an age where returning to our roots is becoming vital, the heart of our countrysides beats strongly in step with the seasons. Unchanging and authentic, our rural regions offer a lifestyle in harmony with nature. Head to greener pastures and take to the countryside.

Vineyards Investment

Just like property, wine incorporates elements of both asset management and art de vivre. Whether Grand Crus or more simple cuvées, they all rhyme with conviviality and elegance. Behind the shimmering reflections lie vineyards that are becoming increasingly rare and coveted assets. Make your big entrance in the wine industry.

Equestrian properties

The Cadre Noir in Saumur or the Garde Républicaine… institutions whose name alone conjures the trotting of horses and whose reputation beyond our borders is already irrefutable. Horse races, breeding, show jumping, polo… when it comes to horses, the possibilities abound. Take the leap!

Hunting properties

An ancestral practice, hunting has reinvented itself over the centuries to become an art de vivre in itself. Buying a hunting estate means being able to pursue your passion to the full, in keeping with tradition, and in direct contact with the fauna and flora. When it comes to your investment, venture off the beaten track.

Yachting world

Treating yourself to a yacht is often a dream come true, for sailing novices and experienced pleasure sailors alike. Make the sea your favourite place on Earth.

Art + Design

“Art is the only serious thing in the world”, in the words of Oscar Wilde.  Attractive returns, low taxation and cultural heritage make buying works of art a safe haven. Reveal your inner artist.
