Light, spacious, natural, local. The designers at Slow Life Architects in Barcelona used these four guiding principles when designing the waterfront villas, patio villas and apartments at La Baraquette. The result are homes that combine traditional French elegance with sleek, modern comfort.
Fashioned from local stone and wood, all let in plenty of warm, Mediterranean light thanks to innovative ‘outside-in’ glass doors that disappear into walls when opened. Every home comes with state-of-the-art kitchen appliances, luxury bathroom fittings and ‘domotic’ (remotely adjustable) air-conditioning and lighting systems. All to give you complete control over your environment, while connecting you to the light, scents and sounds of the Mediterranean outdoors.
Step out into the Mediterranean
Waterfront and Patio Villas all have pools - finished in mosaic tiles and surrounded by local sandstone. The latest cross-current technology will allow you to swim against a current, and soothing jacuzzi jets are on hand to help you recover afterwards. The pools are also fitted with LED pool lights which can be set to any colour you like, or even switched to a multi-coloured strobe setting for parties.
Gardens, courtyards, terraces and balconies ensure you make the most of Languedoc’s 300 days of sunshine. Outside spaces will be tastefully landscaped with indigenous plants such as lavender, trailing rosemary, oleanders, rocket pines and olive trees.
Where cars disappear
To create a more human, relaxing environment on the estate, massive underground car parks will be built to ‘hide’ the cars. All properties will have at least one dedicated parking space (sometimes more), and every villa and apartment will come with a free open-top electric Citroen Méhari ‘buggy’ (first launched in the Côte d’Azur in 1968) or an electric bike - to help you get around.
