> New offices on the horizon Mallorca, a world-class destination for both holidays and property, is soon to be home to Fine & Country offices, as a group of independent professionals have adopted the brand to cover the entire island. From Pollença to Palma and Calvià to Cala D’Or, Mallorca offers huge diversity in activities, nationalities and properties. The dynamics of the island and the limited disposable space boost prices and enable it to compete with other prime locations across the globe, such as London, New York and Sydney. The principal allure of the island is the azure coastline. While resorts dominate parts of the coast, a vast number of preserved seaside features can be found around the island. Coves, caves and cliffs are scattered between beaches and bays. With many of its idyllic towns and villages lying just a stone’s throw from the shore, it’s easy to see why Mallorca is such a popular lifestyle destination. The Fine & Country Mallorca brand will help buyers and sellers relocate to and from this picturesque part of the world. Fine & Country Mallorca mallorca@fineandcountry.com +447968731610

TRAVEL

A

s a first-time visitor to Dresden, which has a population of over half a million residents, I am pleasantly surprised to find my hotel is in a quiet area, the entrance discreetly tucked in a building that defines one side of Neustadt Square. Only a few hardy souls are seated at the eateries nearby as I stroll through and enter the lobby.

I’m greeted by Lisa, who provides me with the perfect solution for my need of a light meal. Why not have room service? Vienna House QF only caters for breakfast, but they have an arrangement with the co-located Italian restaurant. Ever thoughtful Lisa has assessed my limited German vocabulary and slips next door to get an English menu. I opt for a tuna salad and before I have time to complete my unpacking it arrives, resplendent on a white starched tablecloth. In my initial scan of the room I’ve noted a welcome platter of skewered grapes drizzled with chocolate and, joy of joys, a beautiful white ceramic teapot with a choice of real tea leaves, so my meal is complete. The spacious feeling in my suite is intensified by the simplicity of the furnishings. I’m drawn to a chair which I later discover is the Dresden chair, especially designed for the hotel by its Italian architect and interior designer Lorenzo Bellini. With functionality as the central premise, ➤➤

the hotel works well, with any potential severity carefully softened by a neutral palette and warm accented lighting. While the décor is generally understated, my bathroom exudes quiet luxury, resplendent in Italian marble tiles. The following morning, after a breakfast that includes local specialties and robust coffee, I’m ready to begin exploring the city. With a glorious blue sky overhead, I begin at the Frauenkirche, almost next door to my hotel. This signature landmark of Dresden was destroyed during air raids in World War II, reduced to a 42-foot-high pile of rubble. For 40 years it was untouched. It became the centre of the East German peace movement in the 1980s, but it was not until 1994 that the church reconstruction began. By using original plans from 1726 and combining stones salvaged from the fire with new ones, its unique mosaic appearance distils the essence of the city. A small detour and I find myself at the Procession of Princes, the ancestral gallery of the House of Wettin, the dynasty that ruled Saxony. Painted on around 23,000 Meissen porcelain tiles, the

10

procession is 102 metres long and nine metres high, making it the largest porcelain picture in the world. Nearby Altmarkt (old market square) is the main square in the Old City. The reconstruction of this square began in the 1950s and retains reminders of Dresden’s socialist past. One side of the square is enclosed by the Palace of Culture, decorated with a mural called, “The path of the red flag”. Thirty metres long and ten metres high, it has recently been restored and is heritage listed. Altstadt is home to the famous Christmas market, where Stollen cake, which originated in Dresden, abounds. In the summer season, the area caters for some of the 4.4 million tourists who want casual outdoor dining on typical German fare, including bratwurst, potatoes and beer in abundance. On the western side of the square, the palace-style design is integrated in the Altmarkt Galerie shopping centre. No visitor could complain about a lack of opportunity for retail therapy here. Resisting the temptation to shop, I choose to indulge instead in the Saxon tradition of coffee and cake, to energise my wanderings.

The walk along Brühlsche Terrasse, an elevated riverside promenade on the northern edge of the Altstadt, provides a spectacular view of the River Elbe. Landing stages for boats offering half-day trips are dotted along the river and looking to the other side of the terrace, the views stretch from the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts to the Zwinger palace. The baroque style of this building is typically Dresden and reflects the love of pomp by Augustus the Strong, the former King of Poland and Elector of Saxony. It now houses the Old Masters Gallery, boasting one of the largest collections of European paintings worldwide, the Mathematical-Physical Salon and the Porcelain Collection, just three of more than 27 museums and exhibitions the city has to offer. A 257-step climb to the bell tower viewing platform of the Kreuzkirche rewards me with a panorama of the city, split by the River Elbe as it snakes its way to the North Sea. Later, crossing the river via the Augustus Bridge, I’m met by a golden equestrian statue of Augustus the Strong, and very gold he is, having been restored with 200 grammes of gold leaf. The avenue the statue presides over is a contrast to the Old City, with its wide boulevard style giving it an almost modern feel. My route then takes me to the refurbished Artisan Arcades. The small shops are inhabited by a range of artists and artisans, each one demanding attention. I am out of time and can only admire the exterior of the Japanese Palace, another baroque building, which was originally intended to house Augustus the Strong’s porcelain collection and is now the Ethnological Museum. In the evening, sipping wine at the hotel’s rooftop Dachbar, from where I can almost reach out and touch the Frauenkirche, I have time to reflect on this fascinating city. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the history and regeneration of the place, but it’s so much more than a reflection of its past – it’s a city that embraces the future. It’s a festival city and a centre for arts and culture, but it also encourages innovation and is home to a university specialising in nanotechnology. A few short days later at the railway station as I’m about to depart, I chat with some fellow travellers who have been attending a technology conference. “Isn’t this a fantastic city,” they exclaim. I certainly agree. Dresden was almost wiped off the map in the 1945 bombings, but it has restored itself with aplomb, striking the perfect balance between past and future. n

The three-seater Ruben Sofa in Designers Guild velvet is £4,150. See www.rume.co.uk for details.

GOLF

The five ingredients of a top golf property

Above: Jumeirah Golf Estates.

European Tour Properties offers stunning courses in beautiful locations that provide enviable lifestyles with unrivalled customer service. Bronwen Hiller outlines the top five qualities that define an outstanding resort. Community living Community living is at the heart of properties situated in golfing environments. Take for example Jumeirah Golf Estates, which delivers an enhanced outdoor living experience in the heart of new Dubai. This safe residential area with 16 communities all linked by a ring road has attracted residents from more than 60 countries. With this level of cultural diversity, it is important that a sense of community is supported by sports and lifestyle facilities.

14

Not all owners are golfers. In fact, “over 60% of residents simply chose Jumeirah Golf Estates for the remarkable lifestyle�, says CEO Yousuf Kazim. It would, however, be hard not to develop a passing interest in golf, with 75% of the villas and units having views of the Greg Normandesigned Fire and Earth golf courses. The Mediterraneanthemed Clubhouse, which lies at the centre of these championship golf courses, offers fine food and beverage choices for members and residents alike and is a perfect focal point for families and friends.

FINEANDCOUNTRY.COM

GOLF EHW Issue 36 2018_V4.indd 14

19/11/2018 17:25


GOLF

An incredible 45% of the estate is made up of sports and lifestyle facilities, with a further 30% dedicated to public areas and lakes. There are plans to add community parks, which will augment the existing facilities which include a gymnasium, golf training, a Rehabilitation and Performance Centre, running club, swimming pools and a tennis academy. The first retail centre for Jumeirah Golf Estates opened in October 2017, offering a grocery store, restaurant and café. Outstanding courses in beautiful locations Naturally, the setting of a golf course and its associated properties makes an impact. For a beautiful location, it is hard to go past Troia Resort in Portugal, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the Estuary of the Sado River and the Arrábida mountain range. Biodiversity is a differentiating factor of Troia Resort, with over 600 species of plants and animals listed. The landscape is preserved by strict environmental protection laws, but residents are spoilt for choice with villas and townhouses blending perfectly into the landscape, located either near the beach, the lake or the golf course. The 18-hole course was voted one of Continental Europe’s best 20 Golf Resorts by Golf World magazine in 2018, and it sits alongside the beach with views of the Arrábida mountains. Cutting-edge design At PGA Catalunya Resort, the special setting is integral to the architectural design. This harmony with the natural surroundings is achieved while combining modern design, comfort and wellbeing. The cutting-edge design here combines the talents of award-winning and up-andcoming architects, with impressive results. No stone has been left untouched in ensuring the properties and facilities offer comfortable, luxury living. Leisure facilities For golfers and non-golfers alike, having access to leisure facilities can be a drawcard. Quinta do Lago, nestled within the Ria Formosa nature reserve in Portugal, interacts with nature through its superb facilities, offering an active outdoor lifestyle. There have been changes throughout its 45-year history. “We are massively more lifestyle and family-oriented than we were in previous decades. This is making us attractive to wider and younger audiences,” says Jamie Robinson, Real Estate Sales Director at Quinta do Lago. “We have just opened The Campus on resort, a huge new investment and flagship elite sports training facility for athletes and residents alike.” The Campus offers a variety of programmes for residents and visitors and includes special training opportunities as diverse as tennis and dance.

Above: La Balca Show Villa, PGA Catalunya Resort; The Clubhouse, Troia Resort; Quinta do Lago 8th Hole.

What hasn’t changed is the quality of the leisure offerings. This is maintained through keeping all offerings in house, which Jamie says means “we have a finer control on quality levels”. This extends to providing an in-house concierge service, allowing owners to book both on-site amenities and additional external offerings, such as restaurants and water parks. ➤➤

Down the hallway onto the fairway We understand that those looking at buying a property on a golf course are not just investing in a home, they are investing in a lifestyle; to wake up and walk directly onto the green and to spend the morning playing a few rounds, before retreating to the clubhouse for a spot of lunch. This is why Fine & Country has teamed up with European Tour Properties and Troon Golf to form a specialist division, Fine & Country Golf Living. The division is dedicated to the marketing and sale of an elite collection of golf properties on some of the world’s most exclusive golf courses.

While residents are not necessarily golfers, those who are have a choice of three courses, each offering a different challenge. Again, the estate attracts families looking for that special retreat in the sun, surrounded by high-quality restaurants and facilities. Customer service Outstanding customer service is an integral part of all European Tour Properties. The European Tour Properties mystery shopper initiative works to enhance all aspects of customer experience across the network of world-class venues by ensuring the highest levels of service and sales etiquette are maintained. Finca Cortesin is one of the resorts that has benefited from this. Miguel Girbés, Director of Golf at Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa says, “Many resorts can offer five-star facilities, but if these are not matched by equivalent customer service levels then the memory is quickly forgotten.” They should know, having earlier this year received the European Tour Properties Award for Best Staff Operation in 2017. This is no mean feat, as golf resorts are assessed across various categories, with the criteria based on written confirmation from staff to visitors on tee times, shop presentation, visibility of marshals on the course, payment information, attention to detail, food presentation and data capture. n Top and above: Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa.

L

e Cannet, in the south of France, was once an area of great agricultural production – the Tivoli Gardens stand on former fields. Occupied since the Roman period, the town developed from the 15th century with the implantation of families coming from Italy at the request of the monks of Lérins. It separated from Cannes officially in January 1777, but has developed south, where its streets intertwine with Cannes. The charming, hilly commune is centred around the bustling Boulevard Carnot, with its elegant Belle Époque and Art Deco mansions. Side streets lined with delis and boutiques draw hip crowds who linger in open-air bistros and bars. Sheltered from the north wind by its backdrop of mountains, the weather here is dry and warm. This has earned Le Cannet the nickname “Madeira of France”. Classified nationally as a city of tourism and flowers, mimosa pines, eucalyptus, orange trees, and olive trees grow on the softly sloping hills, overlooking the bay of Cannes, with views of the islands of Lérins and the Esterel cliff road.

In the heart of Vieux Cannet, the old town, religious buildings abound, like the chapel Notre-Dame-desAnges. A Historical Monument, it dates from the middle of

20

the 16th century and reveals a rectangular nave. The Church of St Catherine of Alexandria also dates from the 16th century, with its decorated walls, two beautiful baroque altars and a vault decorated with 18th-century mufflers. The Saint-Bernardin Chapel, now an exhibition site, dates from the 16th century and has also been included in the supplementary inventory of Historical Monuments. Along the streets of Cannet, you can also spot the Saint-Sauveur chapel and its belfry, the Sainte-Philomène church of the early 20th century, and, built by the monks of Lérins in the middle of the 15th century, the tower of the Danys, which bears the name of one of the founding families of the commune. Other sights include the Calvys tower, an old 15th-century fortified house, the Wall of Lovers painted by Raymond Peynet, and the PierreBonnard space in an old Anglican church. Everywhere, art and culture abounds. Artisan studios line the historic Rue Saint-Sauveur, while Musée Bonnard displays works by Post-Impressionist painter Pierre Bonnard, and the façade of the Chapelle du Saint-Sauveur is decorated with frescoes by Expressionist artist Théo Tobiasse.

Le Cannet’s innate elegance and charm can win over the most hardened heart, and when it does, a beautiful Belle Époque-style villa awaits. This gorgeous property was extended and renovated in 2012 to offer 1,300 square metres of luxury living space. It features panoramic sea views – facing south it takes in views over the whole bay of Cannes – making it one of the most impressive properties in the south of France. Beautifully presented, it is light and airy throughout and has fabulous living spaces and exceptionally high ceilings. The villa benefits from five master bedroom suites, and three living rooms, one with a beautiful marble fireplace. The property offers beautifully manicured gardens on 5,500 square metres of land, with lush lawns, palm trees and an outdoor pool overlooking the sea, complementing the indoor heated pool with retractable roof, as well as a rooftop garden.

URBAN RETREAT

A jewel in the Channel

T

he enchanting car-free island of Sark lies only 80 miles off the South Coast of England, but it feels like a step back in time. There’s no better base for exploring the captivating enclave than Clos a Jaon. Built in 1700, this delightful property constructed of Sark granite walls and thatched roofs was for generations a simple pair of cottages. Allowed to fall into disrepair, it was revived in the 1970s, before truly coming to life with an ambitious renovation project in 2015. Lavender flowerbeds, an original well and wine barrels adorned with fuchsias accent a magnificent cobbled courtyard, with a small secluded garden hidden by hedgerows and trees and a nearby outside dining area. There’s also a functional outdoor element, with a recently refurbished mature kitchen garden, boasting an incredible array of seasonal, organic vegetables and herbs, soft fruits,

and a small apple and plum orchard. Throw in organic free-range eggs from the on-site chicken pen and the makings of a magnificent meal are at hand. Divided into three self-contained accommodation options – La Grange (sleeps 8), La Grand (sleeps 6) and Le Petit (sleeps 4) – Clos a Jaon represents secluded comfort. Think wood-burning fireplaces, plush beds, and large windows, perfect for observing the spectacular night skies – Sark has been awarded the status of the World’s first “Dark Sky Island”. Nearby, two further properties – Le Friquet (sleeps 9/10) and Chez Nous (sleeps 6) – complete the collection, providing the perfect spot from which to explore the delights of the magical island. n

PROPERTY TIPS

Ten home staging tips Home staging is a great way to showcase a property and ensure it is seen in its best light. Professional home stagers are experienced in interior design, with specialist knowledge of how to sell a house. They work within client budgets to make interiors more appealing to buyers. To get a taste of what home stagers can offer, we asked experts from across the world to share their top tips.

1. Empty homes don’t always work Trish Pead of House In Order says it’s important to start with the basics. Before you think about the positioning and style of your furniture, it’s important to have some in the first place. “Always furnish and dress an empty property. Up to 85% of people are unable to visualise how a room will look if it’s not furnished,” says Trish. 2. Distance yourself Ideally, homeowners need to distance themselves from the house and look at it through an outsider’s eyes. “This can be very difficult for the seller as they are surrounded by their beloved personal items, but it can be the biggest stumbling block,” says Trish. “Personal clutter needs to be packed away and put into storage. Decluttering makes a property lighter and brighter and allows the potential buyer to visualise themselves living there.” 3. Don’t remove the personal warmth HouseWow CEO Anita Richardson says that while removing personal items is good, it is important homeowners don’t

26

take this to the extreme and strip a property of personal warmth. This could discourage potential buyers from generating positive feelings during their visit to the house. 4. Less can be more To maximise the use of space, Trish says: “Less is more when presenting a property. Too much furniture or very large pieces can make a room look small. The right presentation and small stylistic changes can highlight the positive aspects of a property and minimise the negatives.” 5. Decoration Suzy Maas, Founder of The Final Touch, says it’s important to think about the impression décor gives. “Harmonise and neutralise colour schemes to appeal to the majority of viewers. Make displays of pictures and ornaments neat, but try to inject a bit of creativity whenever you can.” Kimberly Ducate from Luxury Home Staging says that a fresh coat of paint will give homeowners a 150% return on their investment, making it a sensible and easy change to make.

PROPERTY TIPS

6. Find the balance between neutral and boring Michelle Roberts of Homestaging Bath adds: “Although neutral tones undoubtedly sell, it doesn’t mean your home has to be dull or, at the other extreme, overly coordinated. The eclectic look is very much in, so find your inner creative and use accessories, lighting, textiles and artwork to add interest and colour, choosing a simple but striking palette to work within.” 7. Give rooms a function Always think about what kind of person will be buying your property and prepare it accordingly. A large family house may benefit from an area designated as a play area, whereas a small bachelor pad may benefit from an office area. If you have a room that is only used for storage, put a bed inside, so it has a clear function. 8. The outside view Don’t forget that some of your interiors can be seen from outside your house, so make sure it looks tidy from both viewpoints. “Think of how your curtains look from the outside, and make sure they are arranged neatly before a viewing,” says Suzy. 9. The biggest spend doesn’t always make the biggest impact “If you decide replacing things in your home isn’t cost-effective, there can be a way around it, such as painting cupboards and tiles in a neutral tone. Similarly, if floorboards are in reasonable condition, don’t replace them – instead, clean and varnish or paint them,” Michelle says. 10. Quality of interiors reflects on the perceived quality of the house Anita believes buyers can tell if finishings are of good quality or not and low-quality finishings reflect poorly on the property. “Master bedrooms must be hotel-quality finish with new pillows, duvets, bedding, colour-coordinated scatter cushions and floor-length curtains,” she says. n

Clockwise from top left: Let in as much light as possible and emphasise views; find your inner creative and use accessories, textiles and artwork to add interest; the right presentation and select pieces can highlight the positive aspects of a space; the quality of the interior will impact the perceived value of the property; uncluttered presentation is key.

The building is located in the Historical Area. Its rear garden is classified as a Green Private Area to be protected. The land is located 5 metres below street level and has an area of 816m2, housing a shallow baroque-style house, adjoining the street. This house has two floors and roof loft above the ground floor and two floors at ground level that open onto the rear garden, all of these floors have a considerable floor to ceiling height.

om Sucesso Resort is much more than a resort! It’s a unique project, conceived in detail by twenty-three internationally renowned architects such as Pritzker Prize award winners Souto Moura or Siza Vieira. Located on the banks of Óbidos Lagoon, near the beautiful and historic town of óbidos, 80km from Lisbon, this is a place of authentic beauty. The entire resort is 160 hectares and phases I and II of Bom Sucesso Resort will contain 601 houses – both villas and townhouses – a Souto Moura’s original 5-star luxury hotel with a Spa, an 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Donald Steel, an unparalleled range of facilities and a large ecological reserve. The design concept is innovative, new to the market and as a model of excellence merges contemporary architecture and nature in a perfect symbiosis. Bom Sucesso has teamed up with internationally renowned masters of contemporary architecture who, along with specialised landscapers, respect the resort’s design strategy and are working together to create something very special. The architects obey the resort’s rules for formal unity whilst still retaining their own originality. One resort rule which is vital to the originality of the resort is the requirement for all rooftops to be covered in greenery in additio to the open spaces within the resort. The final outcome is a stimulating, pioneering and innovative project. Unique and breathtaking! Bom Sucesso seeks to define resort living through a perfect combination of home ownership, golf and lifestyle within an exclusive and secluded location.
