Largillière Finance advises the Sérénya promoter in its partnership with the AMA Network group

Serenya Senior village promoter signs strategic partnership with AMA network group (AD Seniors, AD Quotidien and Crèches Expansion) to Integrate Babadines Concept

Operating in the Center-Val de Loire Region, Sérénya is a real estate development company specializing in the development of residential villages for seniors.

Pioneer in the homes market for independent seniors, with its first houses delivered in 2004, Sérénya is accelerating its development by approaching AMA Network. The Group, which specializes in personal services (micro-nurseries and senior care), chose the senior villages designed and built by Sérénya to incorporate its concept of homes for dependent seniors “The Babadines”.

The seniors’ village “La Promenade du Château” in Trouy, at the gateway to Bourges, developed by Sérénya, is the cornerstone of this partnership. Indeed, 16 of the 52 homes in the program will be dedicated to the Babadines, and AD Seniors will ensure all the services provided by the Residence.

The financing of these first 16 Babadines houses is realized thanks to the real estate portfolio management company Victoires Haussmann sgp in Paris, via the OPCI Générations created for this purpose.

Marc de Saint Roman, leader of Sérénya, said : “We are particularly excited about this strategic partnership with AMA Network, with whom we share the same values and which allows Sérénya to accelerate its growth and to complete its concept with AD Seniors’ services. The involvement and expertise of the Largillière Finance teams throughout the operation were very valuable to us. Largillière Finance enabled us to conclude this merger in the best conditions.

Thomas Bureau, Director at Largillière Finance: “We are delighted to have supported Sérénya in this strategic alliance with the AMA Network group. The seniors village project in Trouy (Cher) is the first step in this partnership to accelerate the development of two groups located in a fast-growing sector. This second operation in less than a month also confirms the expertise developed by Largillière Finance in the real estate and hotel sector.
