Zaya S. Younan Continues Luxury Expansion
LOS ANGELES, September 5, 2018 --- La Grande Maison Younan Collection continued its European expansion by acquiring Château de la Perrière & Golf in the heart of the Loire Valley. The 17th century castle is classified as an historic monument, and it is recognized for its beauty and amenities. This magnificent property features a gastronomic restaurant, an 18-hole, par 71 golf course designed by Robert Berthet, and is one of the most sought after venues for business meetings and weddings in the Loire Valley.
Zaya S. Younan, Chairman & CEO of Younan Properties and the Younan Collection, stated, “I am impressed by the heritage and history of this majestic property, very close to the charming medieval city of Angers. This is a significant acquisition for the Younan Collection because we plan to add a new luxury hotel, transforming Château de la Perrière into a five-star resort.” He continued, “This is another step in our growth to be the largest owner of luxury hotels in France, and the beginning of our global expansion.”
Château de la Perrière is an extraordinary setting for corporate and family events. With nearly 25,000 square feet of timeless glamour and inspired design, Château de la Perrière can accommodate up to 450 people for a large event. The property offers seven elegant reception rooms, 10 versatile meeting/event rooms with high speed wifi and full A/V capability, 32,290 square feet of exquisite gardens and an intimate chapel.
Known for its creative, refined and traditional French cuisine, the restaurant features local seasonal products. Open daily for lunch, guests can enjoy dining on the terrace overlooking the golf course or in the 17th century salon with meticulously-restored ceiling frescoes and fireplaces.
Just 10 minutes from Angers, the prestigious chateau is surrounded by a 185.3 acre golf club that is operated by Golf Bluegreen Avrille where ancient trees, water features and lush vegetation create an interesting and varied course. The golf course is suitable for all levels of play and includes an 18-hole course, a compact 9-hole course and a practice range. The restaurant is open seven days a week, and the pro shop sells the latest in golf attire and accessories.
Dynamic businessman Zaya S. Younan remarked, “It is an honor to be given the opportunity to continue the wonderful heritage of the Château de la Perrière. In the past three years, we have spent hundreds of millions of euros to rebuild and reposition our acquisitions in order to unlock their value and propel their growth. We intend to boost business by adding new amenities and expanding the footprint of this remarkable, historic venue. I never forget that ‘Fortune favors the bold.’”
