But what if...?

  • How much money are you looking for?

    We are currently raising a maximum of CHF 8M in equity.

  • Any benchmark in the area that is being rented and for how much?

    Amēa Villas don’t really use a local benchmark and it will be hard, if not impossible, to compare it to any other development. The rental costs and event prices are set by our hotel management company/advisor, which has its main focus on luxury hospitality. The fees are rather on the conservative side (around 1/3 of what comparable luxury chalets cost in Switzerland, e.g. chaletzermattpeak.com)

  • Who is behind Amēa Villas?

    We are planning to develop the property together with SAOTA and Studio Forma (Architect of Record). The Swiss representation of Amea is Dieter Bleisch, the Board member as well as Alejandra Abad (Investor relations), Matthias Flütsch, and Sophie Wagner.

  • How much tax do I have to pay on the returns generated from the investment?

    Due to the modern structure of the SPV profits are not subject to withholding until the total amount of the capital contribution is repaid. It’s also called a “Tax-free dividend”.

  • Does the company have experience with such projects?

    Saota, the architectural partner and designer has built hundreds of projects around the globe. It’s the most well-known brand for high-end luxury developments worldwide. A private residence in the village “next door” has already been built by SAOTA. The executing architect comes from Ticino.

  • Where is the exact location of the property?

    Via Costa di Fuori 101-79, 6614 Brissago

  • When do I start getting returns?

    If you invest now, you can earn up to 8% during the development phase (5% fixed cash-returns per year and 3% value increase on your shares) which are paid by the developer during the development phase.

  • How are the returns calculated?

    Cash (income hotel operations and events) minus costs (commissions 10%), franchising fee, cleaning) + 2% value appreciation per year – adding up to the shares. Value appreciation received when shares are sold on the secondary market.

  • What happens if the money is not raised?

    There is no definitive answer to this question. We will potentially look at developing a villa of a smaller size. In the unlikely event the project fails completely the company will be liquidated.

  • What security do I have as an investor?

    A unique architectural masterpiece in one of the last plots at one of the most breathtaking locations with high potential for value increase after its development. A one-of-a-kind piece of Swiss real estate.

  • How does the token system work?

    During the development phase investment of CHF 25,000 equals 1 ownership token. After the development phase, an investment of CHF 50,000 will be equal to 1 token. 1 token entitles you to stay one night per year at the villa. The one night stay can also be extended to family and friends, the villa offers sufficient space for everyone.

    As an early bird investor, you profit from the promotion that an investment of 25K equals 1 token and further you get all benefits from the next higher category (Mayor)

  • Can I invest via a company?

    Yes, you can invest through both as an individual investor or through a limited liability company.

  • Can a foreigner invest?

    Yes, we allow up to a maximum of 20% foreign shareholdership due to Lex Koller.

  • How are the per night prices calculated?

    The sales prices have been calculated by our hospitality partner. The calculations are based on profound market knowledge in the UHNWI-segment as well as on market research on comparable properties. Comparable offerings can be found on websites like luxuryretreats.com

  • How can I sell my shares?

    You can register your intent to sell your shares via the Amea secondary dashboard. Once your intent has been submitted, current investors will receive a right of first refusal notice. Such investors will have preferential access to your shares for 30 days. After the 30 days are over, other investors will be able to purchase your shares.

  • Until when is the early-bird promotion?

    It’s a limited-time offer and we may shut it down soon so you better make use of it ASAP.

  • What is the average investment size so far?

    CHF 250’000

  • What major risks are involved?

    The risks that we face at the moment is that we do not raise sufficient money to realize this beautiful project. Once the villa is in operation we face the risk that we don’t have guests staying at the villa. In particular, the second risk we believe is not likely to occur based on extensive market research, and the high occupancy levels, five-star hotels in the area have had over the years.

  • What differentiates Amēa Villas from other investments?

    The timeshare aspect combined with the returns are not frequently to be found but on top of that, the 8% returns which are given during the development phase are unique.
