… It's friendly. The inviting space, organised around a large central bar, makes you want to sit down, whether you are alone, with family or friends.You can also sit out on the terrace, join in a game of cards or board games, read by the fireplace, listen to John sing at the piano, watch a sports match on the big screen or have brunch with the family.
… It's rewarding and fulfilling. The weeks are interspersed with cultural and artistic activities and events, sports and recreation, all organised in various areas (physical activity room, home theatre,wellness area, etc. Residents can actively part in these activities, from defining the programme to organising the events to participating in the experiences.
… It's free. Everyone is at home here and free choice is the rule whether it’s how to decorate your flat,your mealtime schedule, or the activities you choose to engage in.You can serve yourself a cup of coffee or a drink at the bar anytime you please or watch your favourite series in the home theatre. Each inhabitant plays a role in this adventure.

Places where you can immerse yourself in a rich social environment, at your own pace, with complete serenity and according to your own desires »
As for Serge Trigano he sees this adventure as a way to add some enchantment to this chapter of life "Casa Barbara," he says,"is about making your dreams come true because you finally have the time to do so Learning, because it's the right time to become a computer expert, for example. Welcoming your grandchildren in a festive atmosphere. Laughing, simply because life is good with new friends. Remembering and sharing the most beautiful moments of our lives through films, music, and scents. Charming others, because there is no age limit for that Passing on to others our personal and professional experience, thus giving even more meaning to this stage of our lives. It's simply time to think about ourselves and have a good time »
Pierre Gagnaire, who will be creating the menus for the Casa Barbara restaurant, describes here the approach that guides him :"Cooking is not measured in terms of how traditional or modern a dish is. What matters is the cook's tenderness.»
The first opening will take place in the heart of Levallois Perret in spring 2022. Other Casa Barbara facilities will follow, eventually forming a network of houses where our residents can live.
