La Grande Maison Younan Collection (LGMYC) was founded in 2015 by Zaya S. Younan, Chairman & CEO of Younan Company, with its first international acquisition of Château du Petit Chêne, a French National Monument. It represents a collection of four- and five-star luxury properties in key tourist destinations in Europe. These fully renovated Châteaux and Resorts under the Younan Collection name exemplify the history, luxury, and tradition of Europe.
For the past five years, Mr. Younan has been discreetly buying French Castles and transforming them into Luxury Hotels. Because of his remarkable work, commitment, and investments in promoting employment and tourism in France, Mr. Younan received the French Gold Medal for Tourism in 2019. Aside from the beautiful castles, the Younan Collection includes four golf courses strategically located in the Loire Valley region, two vineyards in the Famous Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux region, and MPA Design Agency in Paris. The company also purchased El Septimo Premium Cigars headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.
These independent hotels offer the highest level of guest satisfaction by elevating travel experiences with attentive and personal service. Younan Collection hotels offer a combination of luxury and heritage. Its determination to create luxurious experiences for all guests at all the hotels is what drives the Younan Collection. Moments that will last a lifetime are delivered by the outstanding expertise of its staff. The Younan Collection can take care of any occasion, whether it be a wedding, family vacation, or a business trip. Its seven luxurious hotels are each as remarkable as its guests. The hotels all have their own distinctive traits and histories that provide guests unique experiences in each location.
