When people reach retirement age, they are ready for a new start in life. They are fighting fit, and enjoy a wide range of social and leisure activities. They make the most of their new-found freedom to live life with enthusiasm and indulge their enquiring minds.
Driven by our values and a focus on people, we have teamed up with specialist property management company Montana to create a new generation of serviced residences for seniors: Cazam®.
This concept of senior residences is based on taking a central location within a neighbourhood and adding premium but affordable services, a sense of service and caring relationships to spark joie de vivre.
A senior residence at the heart of the neighbourhood, with easy access to the city
Cazam® residences are an integral part of the urban environment. They are connected with the district, clubs and charities, local activities, shops and public transport. More than ever before, the residents are instrumental in their own lives and their cities.
Residences designed to function as social networks
Cazam® serviced residences for seniors are designed to encourage people to get together, chat and communicate. Seniors can make friends and build up their own social networks based on their rapport with others.
Versatile venues available for private functions
Each resident is free to use the shared facilities for their own purposes, for example to host guests or organise a party.
Personalised apartments and attentive staff with time to talk
The apartments are decorated according to the occupant’s preferences. A maintenance and cleaning team is on hand to ensure everyone is safe and comfortable.
When a young person flies the nest for the first time to go to university, a student residence is an ideal solution, and what is more, one that won’t break the bank. Student residences offer services that take the pressure off – co-working venues, catering, laundrette, IT suite, gym, cleaning, etc. – leaving students free to concentrate on their studies. -
Both public-sector operators (public planning authorities, the Crous student welfare office, etc.) and private investors regularly call on us to build student residences. These residences are located on university campuses and offer a pleasant living environment and top-flight energy performance.
When you travel for work, having comfortable surroundings and the facilities you need makes a huge difference. Far from home, you appreciate a friendly and attentive welcome.
Business travel covers a plethora of situations: projects, meetings, courses, congresses, seminars, events and more. A business residence, or aparthotel, is the perfect home from home, in terms of both accommodation and working environment. After a busy day, it offers everything you need to recharge your batteries and prepare for the next morning.
It is an attractive concept. Larger than a hotel room, each apartment is fully equipped with a kitchenette, TV, Wi-Fi, lounge, etc. - Rates are below those charged by traditional hotels, and discounts are offered for longer stays.
Another advantage of business residences is that they are open to city-break tourists. They offer visitors a comfortable and practical place to stay, at a reasonable price. And the residence sees its occupancy rate boosted too.
Holiday makers heading for the coast or the mountains focus more on tourist residences. Thanks to their locations close to favourite spots, these serviced residences make perfect holiday accommodation. And this is the key to the high occupancy rates that benefit investors.
What expertise does Eiffage Immobilier have in this area? We design serviced residence projects that guarantee excellent returns.
To do this, we harness all our expertise to select the location, based on our knowledge of the local environment and of the market. Whether it is in a city-centre, coastal or mountain setting, every one of our serviced residences is ideally located.
The second key to the success of our projects is the choice of manager. Through the quality of the services they provide and the relationships they build, the manager is responsible for client loyalty. And of course, client loyalty determines the occupancy rate.
We are very careful to choose managers that share our vision of sustainable cities.
As well as being a safe investment, a serviced residence is also recommended as a way to reduce your tax bill. There are a multitude of tax-relief schemes available, including VAT exemption for landlords of furnished properties, tax relief under the Censi-Bouvard scheme, net rents for small-scale landlords and tax relief on industrial and commercial profits for professional landlords.
