BRINGING CASTLES AND ESTATES BACK TO LIFE
This is the mission that Zaya S. Younan has set since 2015.
Lover of history, this passionate Chairman & CEO strives to restore the grandeur of these estates by transforming them into hotels with 4 and 5 star services.
ZAYA S. YOUNAN, PASSIONATE ENTREPRENEUR
An engineer and history buff, Zaya S. Younan began his professional life in the United States. After many successes in the real estate industry, it was during a trip to France that he was offered the unique opportunity to revive the Château du Petit Chêne. He decided to buy it and began major renovations, utilizing the best craftsmen in compliance with 17th century building rules, ultimately creating a décor that combines both contemporary luxury and historic refinement.
In order to assert his values and make this restoration project a reality, Younan created La Grande Maison Younan Collection, a banner under which his various properties are now grouped. Committed to preserving the character and identity of each château, the Younan Collection symbolizes luxury in the 21st century, and continues to grow by integrating additional assets and companies in the luxury consumer space.
Each property part of La Grande Maison Younan Collection has been chosen for its location: in the heart of nature, but just a short distance from major cities. The ancient architecture of these buildings, paired with the elegant décor chosen by the Younan family, offers rare settings peaking tourist interests. The staff will welcome you by your name and make you feel at home, as the Younan Collection team is committed to making every moment spent in one of its hotels perfect.
