Luxury real estate and French art de vivre

Founded by Heidi Barnes and directed by its President Thibault de Saint Vincent for over 25 years, BARNES is now the leading fully integrated international firm in high-end residential real estate that offers its French and international clients comprehensive and fully personalised services through its various business lines: sales of apartments, houses and mansions, buildings, estates and châteaux, new developments and exclusive properties; as well as the rental of luxury properties and property management.

 A fervent advocate of French art de vivre, BARNES also proposes a range of tailored services beyond the purchase of a primary or secondary residence, and provides consultancy services in art and wine-growing estates, as well as its expertise in the acquisition of hunting estates, horse farms and the seasonal rental of villas, yachts and chalets.

With agencies in major international cities (Paris, Brussels, Geneva, London, New York, Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, Los Angeles, Budapest, Athens and Miami), as well as in numerous cities in France (Bordeaux, Lyon, Lille, Nantes, Marseille, Annecy, Aix) and top holiday destinations (Deauville, Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Ile de Ré, Bassin d’Arcachon, Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Sanary, Corsica, Méribel, Courchevel, Megève, Chamonix, Monaco, Marrakesh, Porto Cervo, Mauritius, Koh Samui, Porto Cervo, Gstaad, Verbier and Lugano), BARNES has recently opened a new type of club-like space, the BARNES concept store, offering its customers an experience dedicated to celebration of the french art de vivre.
Beyond real estate expertise, our clients will find a diversified offer, ranging from yachting to wine estates and art.

“For wealthy buyers looking for houses, apartments, seafront villas and country homes, the world is their oyster. It’s our job to provide them with support thanks to our global service that goes beyond the simple hunt for a property - including legal and tax consultancy, personalised support, and various services from renovation to decoration – in one of their preferred cities or regions.

Globalisation is marching onwards, even in real estate.”
