HPB provides holidays for life. It is however, an investment product so your capital is at risk. Read "How it works" for a summary of the principal risks and benefits.

Le Mont de St Siméon

Île de France, France
  • Originally farm buildings, Le Mont de St. Siméon has been beautifully converted into 39 properties, with studios, apartments and cottages to enjoy
  • Close to the bustling hub of Paris and easy access to Reims, Fontainebleau, Chartres and Versailles
  • A great base to discover the Champagne region around Reims with tours and tasting sessions aplenty
  • The Île de France is fantastic for royal palaces, chateaux, historic buildings and stunning formal gardens

The Île de France, with Paris at its hub, lies at the very heart of French history and culture, taking in Reims and Fontainebleau, Senlis and Chantilly, Rambouillet and Chartres, and of course Versailles. Here, set on a gentle hillside near the village of St. Siméon – some six miles east of Coulommiers – is Le Mont de St. Siméon, a development of 39 beautifully appointed holiday properties set in an attractive courtyard overlooking the valley of the river Grand Morin.

Near St. Siméon, the Champagne region around Reims and Epernay offers easy motoring through pleasant wooded countryside. Further afield the attractions include the Palace of Fontainebleu, a favourite hunting residence of the French Kings, and the internationally renowned painters' village of Barbizon. You are also within easy reach of Paris by road or rail.

Le Mont de St Siméon is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 41,000 investors ("Bondholders"). If you are not already a Bondholder and would like further details please see below.

Visit exquisite castles and palaces

If you have an interest in French architecture and history, then you'll want to visit some of the many royal palaces and castles near St Siméon. One of the largest royal palaces is Fontainebleau; surrounded by a forest, it was much-loved by French kings, and it's easy to see why.

There's also the chateau at Vaux-le-Vicomte, the architects of which went on to design the Palais de Versailles, which is larger in scale but not quite as exquisite, some may argue. We'll let you decide!

If it's a castle you wish to see, then visit the Château de Blandy les Tours – a feudal castle with medieval fortifications, which were added during the Hundred Years War.

Drink plenty of champagne

It would be rude not to drink champagne when you're so close to the region in which it originates. Les Grandes Marques, where the bubbly is produced, are often open for tours, where you can see the champagne aging in tunnels and caves underneath Rheims. Of course, and the end of the tour you'll get to sample the result!

There's also a champagne-tasting excursion at St Siméon, which takes place every week.

Eat your weight in Brie

France is famous for cheese and Brie is produced throughout the Île-de-France region. We thoroughly recommend giving St Siméon Fromagerie de la Brie a visit, as it's been making the cheese since 1929! You'll definitely want to take some home with you.

Take the kids to a theme park

Children and adults of all ages love Disney, so why not treat the whole family to a day at Disneyland Paris? Alternatively, there's Parc Astérix, which a theme park based on the characters created by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny. There are fantastic rides and shows at both for kids and adults of all ages.

Enjoy the romance of Paris

France's capital is just 60km away from St Siméon, so you'll no doubt want to pay it a visit at some point during your holiday. Make sure you tick landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and Arc de Triomphe off your list of things to see and do while you're here.

If you've seen them all before, then why not just go for a walk through the city and stop somewhere for a glass of wine or coffee? Paris is one of the best places to watch the world go by and perhaps even propose to that someone special!

Long-stay holidays

If you want to stay for longer than a week at our lovely property (and why wouldn't you?), then you can do so out of season by taking advantage of our concessionary long-stay holiday specials. For more details, please refer to our brochure or get in touch with us.

How HPB works: HPB is designed to give you and your family holidays for life. To achieve this, it is structured as a life assurance bond investing, after product charges, in properties and securities. Properties are booked for a no profit "User Charge" and Points issued with the Bond. There is a quarterly fee of under thirty pounds linked to RPI, with all other management fees paid from securities. You may cash in after two years at a value linked to that of the properties and securities but you may get back less than you paid because of charges and changes in the value of HPB's properties and securities. In exceptional circumstances cashing in may be deferred for up to twelve months. Minimum initial payment £5,000. No medical examination required. HPB is available exclusively through HPB Management Limited ("HPBM") who will only charge for their services if you invest.
