Six Senses Vallée de la Loire

Banque des Territoires, in partnership with Les Bordes Estate and UK investment fund RoundShield, has committed to financing the Six Senses Loire Valley project at Les Bordes Estate, a vast 560-hectare site nestled in the heart of the Sologne forest.

While the project was initially led by RoundShield Partners LLP following an agreement signed in 2019, this new partnership with Banque des Territoires reinforces their commitment to creating new tourist attractions on the Bordes estate.

Representing an investment of €270 million and creating 400 new jobs, this major project involves the creation of a five-star hotel and spa with 50 rooms and suites, three restaurants, swimming pools and various leisure facilities, as well as 52 Six Senses residences.

Managed by Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, one of the luxury brands of the Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG), this project marks an important step in enriching the Loire Valley's residential and tourism offering.

"The completion of the Les Bordes tourism project is excellent news for the region. Located in the heart of the Loire Valley Châteaux, the Bordes estate is an exceptional site that deserved to be enhanced by a quality tourist accommodation offer. From the outset, this project was supported by Banque des Territoires, in close collaboration with local authorities, who saw it as a lever for international development and the creation of long-term jobs for the region. It fully meets the environmental requirements we have set ourselves, with a Breeam Very Good label and an energy mix that limits greenhouse gas emissions." - Antoine Troesch, Investment Director, Banque des Territoires

"We are delighted to partner with Banque des Territoires to further develop a lifestyle unique to the estate with this new hotel and residential offering. The investment mission of Banque des Territoires fits perfectly with our vision for Les Bordes Estate. We want to make this a leading tourist destination in the region, and we're delighted that Banque des Territoires is supporting us in this objective." - Driss Benkirane, founder and managing partner of RoundShield.
