Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa became a member of the Moët & Chandon Privilege Club

first_imgOnly a few locations in the world have succeeded in becoming a member of the Moët & Chandon Privilege Club, which further speaks of the strict selection process and top quality standards that the Ikador Hotel and its Nobilion restaurant have managed to meet. The philosophy of the Moët & Chandon Privilege Club originated deep beneath the streets of French Épernay, among the famous 28-kilometer-long Cretaceous cellars. It is a place where generations of main cellarers (chef de Cave) strictly keep the keys to private galleries where the rarest and most prized collections of Grand Vintage champagnes rest. From rare, never-before-announced vintages, to magnums and jeroboams, this exclusive selection is available only to a handful of the world’s most famous restaurants, and now, for the first time, to the Croatian public.  The collaboration with the Moët Hennessy group and one of the most famous champagne houses Moët & Chandon, is a natural continuation of Icador’s concept by which he creates unique experiences for his guests and visitors. Icador’s Nobilion restaurant can thus boast a selection of very rare specimens from the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage collection, thus opening the door to a whole new level of gastro-oenological experience. In addition to Moët & Chandon, visitors to Nobilion can also enjoy other rarities of this famous group, such as those from the champagne houses Dom Perignon and Krug, as well as exclusive specimens of Hennessy cognac. Ikador has 16 accommodation units (9 double rooms, 7 suites) and is categorized with 5 *. center_img Photo: Icador The most luxurious boutique hotel on the Adriatic, Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa from Lovran has signed an exclusive partnership agreement with the French champagne house Moët & Chandon.

Revealed: The average asking price for a property in Donegal

first_imgIn the latest Daft.ie housing report it is revealed that nationally prices are increasing for the second quarter in a row.According to the report by Ronan Lyons, the national average list price in June was 8.8% higher than in December.Lyons predicts that the strong increase in price is set to continue; “The rise of 4.3% in the average list price seen in the second quarter of 2017 matches the rise in the first quarter, which was the largest since early 2015.” Lyons says that in Donegal, the average asking price is €145,217, a year-on-year change of 5%.In Donegal, the average asking price for a one bedroom apartment is €47,000, an annual change of 1.9%.A two bed terraced property is on average €64,000 (15.3% annual change).On average, a three bed semi-detached will set you back €93,000 (13.0% annual change), and a four bed bungalow costs €174,000 (3.0% annual change). For a five bed detached house, people can expect to pay €208,000 on average (11.2% annual change).In the Ulster-Connacht region, fewer than half of the properties sell within four months (48%), down slightly from a year ago (54%).Although this region had the fastest house price growth in Ireland in late 2016, at 12%, it now has the slowest (8%). Comparatively, in late 2016 Dublin’s price growth was just 5%, but is now 12%.There were 1,750 transactions in the Ulster-Connacht region in the first quarter of 2017, which is a slight increase from 1,670 in the same period last year – however this is still below the figure for 2015, which saw 1,900 transactions.Just 6,000 properties were on the market in Ulster-Connacht in June. Although this is slightly higher than the 5,700 listed three months previously, it is still far below last year’s number of 6,900. For the first time in two years, inflation in the Dublin area (12.3%) has exceeded the rate elsewhere (11.3%).May 2017 marked the largest number of new listings since 2008, with over 6,000 properties being listed for sale nationwide.Lyons adds; “The principal reason why so few homes are being built is the high cost of construction. Hopefully the new Housing Minister will focus on reducing the hard costs of construction.“This will have beneficial effects for both market and social housing. “Combined with a strategy for using vacant homes, using land better and reform of housing subsidies, it is entirely possible for this country to have a healthy housing system.”Revealed: The average asking price for a property in Donegal was last modified: July 4th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:asking pricesaveragedaft housing reportdonegalpropertylast_img read more
