The idea is simple enough: you and your group buy out a hotel and have almost the whole place to yourself. These days, when private pods have become complete social lives and tight circles have become exclusive circles, it is becoming more and more desirable to reserve the entire tiny boutique hotel or castle in order to ensure genuine, unique guest experiences.

The price may be the most intriguing aspect. It makes sense in some situations. At others, however, it's hardly prohibitive. Costs per day for self-catering homes may start at €2000 and go up to €3500 or more. This leaves plenty of space for exclusive private tours at wineries and cultural institutions, meals prepared by private chefs hired by the week, and trips to the seaside.

You're not alone if you're finding it difficult to divide and are counting your favorite buddies on your fingers."There has been a rise in demand for buyouts," notes Jennifer Macdonald, co-owner of Chateau de Belet, an eight-bedroom ensuite, superbly modernized, 15th-century home in the SW The France Bordeaux Castle is the kind of location where the idea flourishes, drawing customers from all over the globe with buyouts starting at $24,900/week.

These days, Belet is ideal for a buyout due to many factors than only its tiny size and exclusive 110-acre estate in the Bordeaux area. It's the place. Dordogne, France, is one of the regions in the world that has built its name on the allure of nature. Groups "that just want a destination with plenty of outdoor activities, privacy, and full service options" are the ones that often purchase properties.The trend isn't only being driven by vacation getaways; buyouts have also found some professional use.

Recently, Australian street brand INDUSTRIE CLOTHING commandeered the Belet Estate for the purpose of organizing a photo shoot for their 2024 collection. Film crews found Bordeaux, Paris, and Perigeaux to be a desirable alternative in a different area of the region.

Don Macdonald, co-owner of the Belet, continues, "We've had a lot of families and friends doing micro-pods; it's perfect for grouped families with children, generational family gatherings, and touring groups." Whether or if you pack the premises, a buyout is just you and your pre-approved fellow guests.

As evident as the benefits of the buyout are, undivided attention could be the biggest advantage from a hospitality standpoint. When all of Belet's resources are directed on meeting the demands of a single group, customized food and beverage, activities, transportation choices, and even in-room amenities may be planned. It's easy. "We are more involved in the planning process for buyouts," Don explains. "Therefore, when a group books, our whole concierge team is available to them."Exclusive usage offers benefits.A buyout may only be completed by a hotel if no rooms are reserved. You can always start looking at choices if you want to try one this summer or perhaps next winter. These rates are just estimates that might change depending on the number of visitors, season, availability, and required minimum number of nights.
