How to Reserve Your Share of "Le Palace des Vosges"
By Adrian Leeds

I signed the Promesse de Vente on Tuesday of this past week on behalf of the buyers of "Le Palace des Vosges," our newest and hottest fractional ownership property in the Place des Vosges. This means it’s full steam ahead for those wishing to purchase their share or shares of the magnificent property.

The attorneys are currently working to finalize the RESERVATION CONTRACT which will secure each share. Many of you have requested how the process will work and therefore, we’ve assembled a step by step procedure you may easily follow.

1. Reserving Your Share

Thoroughly read the RESERVATION CONTRACT and all of its ANNEXES before completing and signing as is indicated on the form.

The contract includes the complete PDV Operating Agreement and several annexes: description of the property, the legal title (only if the title deed has been signed, projected for December 19, 2008), the draft of the LLC constitution, the operating agreement, the escrow agreement and the share issue agreement.

It does not need any notarization, but be prepared to fax it or email a scanned copy of it to THE INTERNATIONAL LAW PARTNERSHIP. Please then post an original version to them at the following address:

John Howell & Co
c/o Sally Dilks/PDV
The Vaults
Holborn Hall Building
193-197 High Holborn

Sally Dilks: Tel +44 (0) 20 7061 6742
Fax: +44 (0) 20 7061 6701
Email: [email protected]

The documents must be accompanied by a deposit of 15,000. See Step 2.

2. Transferring Funds

Transfer 15,000 to a special escrow account held by John Howell & Co.

We recommend that if you are transferring from another currency to euros, that you use a currency broker, such as Moneycorp, to save about 1% off of the transfer fees most banks charge.

Our contact at Moneycorp, Brian Westwater, will help you register so you can transfer your dollars (or other currency) into the escrow account. Using Moneycorp makes the money transfer safe and efficient. Plus, they offer a competitive rate of exchange with no commissions or transfer fees.

After explaining the process, Brian will e-mail a three-page form to you, and you will complete the last page only, which requests your name, address and other basic information. Return the signed form to Brian, along with a scan or fax of 1) a photo I.D.; and, 2) one proof of address such as a bank statement or a utility bill. Brian will complete your registration process within the day.*

* You will need similar information sent to THE INTERNATIONAL LAW PARTNERSHIP which holds your deposit in their escrow account: a notarized copy of your passport and two (2) proofs of residency of the address on your passport (i.e. utility bills, tax bills or bank statements in your name). This is required by Money Laundering Regulations no. 2157 of 2007 adopted by the Law Society of England and Wales.

5. Making Your Final Payment

Your final payment must be made within 30 days of the signature date of the RESERVATION CONTRACT. If we do not receive full payment of your share(s) by the earliest of these two dates, you risk losing the share and your full deposit.

Investment per Share:

Shares 5 through 10: 138,900
Shares 11 through 13: 147,900

2010 = 1750 due December 15, 2009

7. Frame Your Ownership Certificate and Pack Your Suitcase!

It is Interesting How Interesting French Property is at the Moment!
By Trisha Mason,
VEF Ltd. http://www.vefuk.com

Le ProvencalHaving written last week about the feeling of potential property buyers who came to the French Property exhibition recently, I have been very interested to witness the amount of press attention this has evoked and the amount of other web sites all referring to it. It seems that everyone is after some good news, and owning a property in France certain provides that feel good factor.

Throughout all the gloom and doom in the UK things have never felt particularly bad in France. There has been no substantial increase in prices, in fact when I returned to the UK after being in France for 6 weeks I really could not believe the price of food here. I just thought things were marked incorrectly at first! In France our fuel and food prices have crept up by 2-3% but that is all and still the sun shines and life is lived calmly and happily. All of this is a good reason to be in France, but is there a good reason to buy a property in France?

I believe there is. Property prices have stabilized, where there have been silly prices put on property by new and inexperienced agents who all came out to make hay while the sun shone in the last 3 or 4 years, these prices are now correcting themselves. The inexperienced agents are closing down and the professionals remain. It was exceedingly annoying in recent years to be asked to view property with the intention of marketing it and then to be told by the vendor that so and so agent (brand new to the area) had valued it at 20% above our valuations. The implication was that we were rogues and trying to get their houses cheap, now the truth is dawning and the inexperienced agents, who were forced to offer better valuations to try to fill their portfolios, are closing down. The property market in France has always been renowned for being a cautious place, the idea of investing in property was never present in most French peoples minds. A house was a home, it was not part
of your bank balance. And by buying a property in France now you are buying a home at the right pri

This is not to say that everyone who purchased a property in the last 4 years paid too much for it. As long as they used experienced and professional agents, that agent would have negotiated the right price. And, of course, all those people who bought their homes in France a while ago have had the pleasure that owning a French property can bring. Its all about a really special quality of life which is second to none. Its about a more gentle pace of life, about respect for people and tradition, a better climate, a more positive outlook and maybe exercising your brain as you improve your French language skills on a daily basis. There is always something different and exciting that happens every day when you are in France, there is always something to amaze, something to wonder at and something to enjoy. Get out there now and enjoy a new way of life.

Super-prime Property Market Hit by Financial Turmoil
By Jennifer Hill,
The TimesOnline http://www.timesonline.co.uk

Le ProvencalTop-end properties around the world are falling in price as the fall out from the credit crunch continues, although some markets are still booming.

Declining economic conditions in western markets are hitting the super-prime residential property market across the globe, second quarter figures from estate agent Knight Frank show.

The price of prime properties in Dublin is down by 16.7 per cent in the year to the end of June. In Tokyo, top-end homes have shed an average 9.4 per cent of their value and in Florence, Italy, prices have dropped by 8 per cent.

However, demand for properties worth 10m or more is increasingly divorced from the wider market, with strong performance continuing in London, New York, Los Angeles and other high-end markets.

These properties increased in value by 1.8 per cent in London in the year to the end of June, while those in the French Cote dAzur rose 2 per cent and prices in Manhattan, New York, are up 12.3 per cent.

Monaco topped the prime international property index table, with annual house price inflation of 30 per cent, and the most expensive price per average square foot of property.

Buyers at the top end of the market pay an average 3,762 per square foot in Monaco, followed by 3,291 in London, 3,121 in the prime areas of the Cote dAzur and 2,530 in Courchevel, France, a top destination for wealthy Britons during the winter sports season.

Marie Antoinette’s Refuge at Versailles Reopens

[Editor's Note: While this article would not usually be FPI material, we chose to include it to highlight the renovation and decor plans for "Le Palace des Vosges"]

Le Provencal

VERSAILLES, France (AP) The Petit Trianon was Marie Antoinette’s refuge, the mini-chateau where she escaped from queenly protocol and played at living a simpler life. Curators who oversaw its renovation have tried to recreate that intimate atmosphere.

The boxy neoclassical building on the grounds of the immense chateau at Versailles reopened Wednesday after a yearlong, $7.34 million renovation funded by Swiss watchmaker Breguet, which once made a timepiece for the queen. Among other improvements, electric wiring was fixed, more rooms opened to the public and a garden pavilion refurbished.

Curators said they wanted to avoid a stuffy museum feel, making it seem as though the 18th-century French queen and her entourage had just stepped away for a moment.

Instead of glass cases to hold period china, for example, curators had cupboards rebuilt in keeping with period plans. They restored servants’ quarters, giving a clearer idea of how royalty and their help would have interacted.

Setting up house at the Petit Trianon, Marie Antoinette "could no longer stand the life of the court, the etiquette, the protocol, the lack of intimacy," said Pierre-Andre Lablaude, an architect who oversees Versailles. Here, "she lived a bit like a lady of the manor … in a more relaxed life."

Take Marie Antoinette’s bedroom, a sunny but surprisingly small and spare room decorated with white walls, dainty flower-print fabrics and some of its original furniture. It was a change from the chilly, heavily brocaded royal apartments at the main chateau.

Le ProvencalExtravagant touches remained nonetheless: When Louis XVI presented his wife with the keys to the small chateau as a wedding gift, they came on a ribbon graced with 531 diamonds. And Marie Antoinette’s bedroom was fitted with sliding mirrors that covered the windows when she wanted more privacy.

Though the Petit Trianon is closely associated with Marie Antoinette, it wasn’t built for her. Louis XV had it constructed for his powerful mistress, Madame de Pompadour, but she died before it was completed in 1768.

Marie Antoinette had her eye on the property even before her husband took the throne, and she had it redecorated in her taste.

"Settling Down in Paris" – Episode HHINT-402

Angela and Ben met in 2003 when they lived in Los Angeles working for the same clothing company. Now, the two are engaged to be married. When Ben started receiving frequent overseas work, the company believed he’d be more valuable in Paris, so they happily relocated. They immediately moved into a cozy rental in the 17th district near the Arc de Triomphe and started to explore the different neighborhoods of Paris. The pair is now ready to take the big leap and purchase an apartment to stay for good. Property consultant Adrian Leeds is enlisted to help.

Summary of August 2008


From the E.U:
*ECB Interest Rate Announcement, followed by news conference at 1.30pm
*Eurozone GDP (Flash Estimate) for Q2.
*German ZEW (Economic Sentiment) for August. Previous -63.9 index
*Manufacturing PMI (Flash Estimate) for August. Previous 47.4 index
*Eurozone GDP (Preliminary Estimate) for Q2. Previous -0.2%q/q & 1.5%y/y

From the US:
*FOMC Interest Rate Announcement
*Consumer Confidence for August. Previous 51.9 index
*Fed release minutes from prior (5th August) FOMC meeting
*GDP Annualized (Preliminary) for Q2. Previous 1.9%q/q
*ADP Employment Survey for August. Previous 9k

Impact of data in the market place:
The beginning of the month saw concern within the ECB following a rise in inflation to 4.1% plus the decline in key German business surveys which produced another slump in EU manufacturing; this latest evidence of a slow down created a huge Euro sell off. Conversely, the dollar enjoyed a better beginning to the month with some encouraging data; improved consumer confidence and better GDP growth. The dollar also benefited from oil prices lowering to $121 from the previous $147. However, the US economy was still reminded it is in trouble by a 4 year high in the unemployment rate of 5.7%.

The theme of poor data from the EU, and more encouraging news from the US was continued into the middle of the month where we saw EUR/USD slide over 6 cents to a 5 month low. This was contributed also by falling oil prices and an unconvincing performance from the ECB head Trichet who was forced to acknowledge the rapid slowdown in the EU economy and this was enough to spark further Euro selling against the dollar.

The Euro IFO business sentiment survey recorded its weakest reading for 3 years, and the Euro weakened into the 1.45s. The market reasoned that the ECB may need to shift their focus from inflation to growth; ECB officials maintained however that their concerns remained with the dangers of secondary inflation effects, despite the latest inflation easing from 4% to 3.8%. The aggressive rate cuts in the US however seem to have been the right way to fend off the credit crunch; consumer confidence is at a 5 month high.
