Oppidum provides a place of safety in times of need. It offers new opportunities for meeting and entertaining clients and business associates, enjoying time with your family and immersing yourself in your prized collections, at your chosen place of residence.
Our experts will take care of the safety and security elements, leaving you to have complete freedom to specify every aspect of its interior design, creating a luxurious, hidden home that reflects your personal needs, tastes and desires.
Even the most valuable collections are, in the end, merely objects and artefacts that can be bought and sold. But your family are part of you. They are the axis your world revolves around, the ones for whom you would do anything, make any sacrifice, the people you love above all else and in whom you place your every hope, dream and ambition.
It’s natural and right, your first duty and deepest desire, to protect them. With an Oppidum retreat, you can insulate them from any and all physical dangers for as long as you need, with all the comfort, mental stimulation, opportunities for exercise and ways to relax they need to thrive.
Events may be disruptive, but within Oppidum life goes on uninterrupted. The interior is appointed to provide all the comfort, convenience and personal choice you’re accustomed to.
Generously proportioned rooms and substantial furniture give a feeling of spaciousness, while deep rugs, wood panelling and handmade tapestries create an atmosphere of quiet and calm. The real-flame gas fireplace adds movement as well as warmth; and with extensive shelving for your library and a high-definition video wall, you have everything to relax and leave the world outside.
Some collectors are content for their classic cars and motorcycles to be exhibits, precious relics frozen in time, untouched and pristine. But for others, these magnificent machines, rare as they are, are to be enjoyed where they truly belong: on the road in all their splendour. The garage in your retreat can serve as a private museum or as a working space where your collection can be permanently charged up, fuelled and ready for action.
You’ve worked hard over many years, taken risks, seized opportunities, made your vision a reality. Your reward is the means to acquire and curate all the beautiful, rare and precious objects you desire.
Accessible to you and your invited guests but impregnable to all others, the gallery is constructed to the same standards as bank vaults and meets the strictest insurance criteria. With state-of-the-art fire protection, ventilation, temperature and humidity control systems, it keeps your art, wine and other collections completely safe, in perfect condition and close to hand.
