Founded by Heidi Barnes with Thibault Saint Vincent as president for more than 20 years, today BARNES is the first fully integrated high end international real estate agent. We offer our French and international clients a comprehensive and personalised service through our various business disciplines: sales of apartments, private houses and mansions, apartment blocks, castles, new developments and stand-out properties, and also luxury property rental and property rental management.
An ardent defender of the French art of living, BARNES also offers a multitude of bespoke services beyond helping you acquire a first or second home. We offer art advice and advice on wine estates, and our expertise in the acquisition of rural real estate such as hunting estates, stud farms, and seasonal rentals such as villa rentals, yacht charters and chalet rentals is second to none.
We have a presence in many major international cities (Paris, Brussels, Geneva, London, New York, Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, Los Angles, Budapest, Athens, and Miami), in large French cities (Bordeaux, Lyon, Lille, Nantes, Marseille, Annecy, Aix..), as well as in the most beautiful holiday destinations (Deauville, Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Ile de Ré, Bassin d’Arcachon, Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Sanary Corsica, Méribel, Courchevel, Megève, Chamonix, Monaco, Marrakech, Mauritius, Koh Samui, Porto Cervo, Gstaad, Verbier and Lugano…). BARNES is continuing with its national and international development and has recently opened a new club style space, known as the BARNES concept store, offering clients an experience dedicated to the celebration of the art of living.
In this space, clients will be able to find diverse expertise and advice going beyond real estate, from yachting to vineyards to art.
“Wealthy buyers looking for houses, apartments, coastal villas, and country properties have the world at their feet. It’s our job to accompany them on their journey and offer them a comprehensive service, beyond a simple property search. A service that includes real estate legal advice and tax advice, personalised assistance, and guidance on whatever contractual works are needed for renovation and decoration, in whichever cities or regions they may prefer.
Globalisation is well en route, and real estate is part of it”
