Zaya S. Younan Adds Third Property to Luxury Resort Company
LOS ANGELES, February 14, 2017 --- La Grande Maison Younan Collection has acquired 4-star Hotel Château de Beauvois, its second historic hotel-castle in the famous Loire Valley. Built in the 15th century, the “castle of the beautiful valley” is located west of the city of Tours, in the heart of King’s valley, close to the vineyards of Bourgueil, Saumur and Chinon. Renowned for its beauty and surrounded by 99 acres of park in front of Lake Briffaut, Hotel Château de Beauvois was frequented by King Louis XIII during his reign.
According to Zaya S. Younan, Chairman and CEO of the Younan Collection and of Younan Properties, Hotel Château de Beauvois was a strategic acquisition and underscores his desire to build a luxury brand with historical significance. “This beautiful hotel embodies centuries of history and culture. We are preserving, restoring and renovating this unique asset to provide guests with a one-of-a-kind, luxury experience in the Loire Valley.”
The first phase of the multi-million dollar renovation has been completed. The lobby, common areas and restaurant have been renovated and feature sumptuous fabrics, crystal chandeliers, handmade carpeting and flooring, as well as a mix of fine furniture and priceless antiques. Each of the 36 guest rooms is being upgraded with its own unique design, furniture and fabrication. In early spring, the exterior renovations will be completed including the pool and tennis court, and a formal garden “Jardin à la Française.” The hotel soon will break ground for a new 20,000 square foot spa, fitness center and conference center.
The gastronomic restaurant, Louis XIII, was renovated under the direction of Chef Régis Guilpain, a Maître Cuisinier de France. Chef Guilpain excels in transforming local ingredients into dishes satisfying the palate and the eye. A custom-built wine cave holds more than 50,000 bottles of wine and champagne and guests are invited to dine in the cave or enjoy an exceptional cognac and a fine cigar from its humidor cellar. The multi-lingual staff of Hotel Château de Beauvois is experienced in planning special occasion events from fairytale weddings, and professional meetings and seminars.
Zaya Younan pointed out that Hotel Château de Beauvois, while luxurious and attentive in every aspect, is a destination for couples and families alike. “Everyone deserves to stay at a castle, to live like a king or queen and to touch a bit of history. The Younan Collection is driven to provide this experience every day.”
