Why holiday hosting in your fractional ownership home is the best

Posted by Co-Ownership Property on 11/13/2023

Picture this: your guests arriving to find a haven of comfort in the guest accommodations. Each room is meticulously prepared with plush mattresses, soft bedding, and extra pillows, ensuring a comfortable stay for everyone. Imagine the bunk beds in select homes, a hit with younger guests and those young at heart, offering a unique and fun sleeping arrangement.

Are you pondering the prospect of purchasing a second home? If so, the concept of fractional ownership might just be the key to unlocking this dream, particularly if your sights are set on a holiday or second property. This increasingly popular choice offers a more accessible entry point financially, with flexible usage rights and the allure of high-end amenities that are typically beyond the reach of more modestly priced real estate.

For those with an eye on properties in countries like France or Spain, fractional ownership presents a pragmatic solution. Often, foreign homeowners are restricted to using their properties for no more than six months a year in these nations. So why shoulder the full financial burden? Under fractional ownership, buying up to half the property (equivalent to four 1/8th shares) aligns perfectly with this time restriction. This limitation even applies to EU residents in these countries, unless they opt for residency and its accompanying tax obligations.

Post-Brexit, British residents face a 90-day stay limitation within any 180-day period in EU countries. Fractional ownership tailors perfectly to this, with each 1/8th share translating to an average of 45 days per year. Thus, purchasing two, three, or four parts affords you 90, 135, or the full 180 days, respectively.

Embracing co-ownership means paying only for the fraction you own – both in terms of purchase price and ongoing costs like maintenance and taxes. This approach is especially sensible considering that many European second homeowners typically use their properties for just 35-40 days a year.

Here are the advantages of fractional or shared ownership:

  1. Reduced Purchase Price: Fractional ownership is a financially savvy way to acquire a second home. It allows you to purchase a share (complete with deeded ownership), significantly lowering the initial investment compared to buying a whole property.
  2. Access to Premium Properties: This model opens doors to luxurious amenities and prime locations, such as properties with ski-in ski-out access or stunning golf course vistas. It’s an affordable path to owning a home in sought-after vacation spots, where property prices are often steep.
  3. Potential for Appreciation: By pooling resources with other owners, you can invest in more expensive properties that offer a lavish lifestyle and have a better appreciation potential, allowing you to profit from future sales.

Consider this example: envision acquiring a chic 3-bedroom apartment in Courchevel, valued at 1.4M€. Through fractional ownership, your investment could be as modest as 175,000€ for an eighth share, offering the same enjoyment at a fraction of the full price.

This innovative ownership model is more than just a cost-saving strategy; it’s a gateway to luxury and exclusivity in top vacation destinations. With the real estate market becoming increasingly unattainable over the last decade, fractional ownership stands as a beacon of hope for many aspiring second homeowners. It’s not just about owning a property; it’s about enhancing your lifestyle without the daunting financial commitment of traditional homeownership.


Hosting friends and family during the holidays in your fractional ownership home is an experience filled with warmth and joy.

As you usher your guests through your second home, watch their eyes light up at the sight of the festive decorations. You have the liberty to transform your space into a holiday wonderland. Picture elegant wreaths, shimmering ornaments, and garlands weaving their magic around the room. The flicker of candlelight and the sparkle of twinkling lights add a touch of enchantment, while a beautifully adorned Christmas tree becomes the centrepiece of your holiday celebrations. Though property management doesn’t provide these decorations, the professional design of your home acts as a perfect canvas for your festive touches. Remember, there’s also convenient storage for your holiday decorations, making keeping everything organized for the next season easy.

The heart of any holiday gathering is often the kitchen, and yours is ready to impress. Envision a space where high-quality cookware and premium appliances come together to help you easily prepare festive feasts. The fully stocked kitchen with elegant dinnerware and silverware is your ally in creating memorable holiday meals. As a fractional ownership homeowner, your kitchen isn’t just well-equipped; it’s a blend of functionality and luxury, designed to make holiday cooking a delightful experience.

Entertainment is key in any gathering, and your home is equipped to ensure everyone has a great time. Whether it’s engaging in classic board games, enjoying a selection of holiday movies, or partaking in outdoor activities if your home is nestled in a winter wonderland, there’s something for everyone. Some homes even boast exclusive features like a theatre room or a games area, adding extra fun to your holiday hosting.

And let’s not forget the importance of ample seating and dining space. Your home is thoughtfully designed with expansive dining tables and comfortable seating, ensuring that your holiday feasts are delicious and beautifully presented. Many homes’ large decks and spacious islands provide additional space, ensuring everyone feels included and comfortable.

Lastly, the ambience of a warm fireplace or an outdoor fire pit sets the perfect mood for relaxation and conversation. These features provide warmth and become focal points where guests can gather, share stories, and enjoy each other’s company.

With all these elements combined, your fractional ownership home becomes more than just a place to stay; it transforms into a festive sanctuary where memories are made and cherished.
