Adrien CHARLET, CEO of GEA Assurances.

Our success is based on two values : the proximity with our customers and the custom made “. Our teams pay the utmost attention to each practice to offer customized insurance solutions. Solutions designed in agreement with our insurance partners.

For example, we offer various insurance outbuildings such as “Gîtes or bed and breakfast”, “Civil Liability: Land and bodies of water or Visit”, “Theft of precious objects”. We adapt to all situations to allow our customers to remain calm in the event of a claim.

We initially specialized in insurance for high-end hotels and restaurants, such as the Hôtel Particuliers chain, the Grandes Etapes Françaises and the Relais & Chateaux. They challenged us, which allowed us to create a contract adapted to the listed and protected buildings. Between design, pricing and implementation, it took a year of work to produce these guarantees.

Since then, this contract exclusive ” to cabinet it’s a lot wanted by our customers and continues to forge our notoriety. Every day we have requests for quotations on the page dedicated tocastle insurance and beautiful residence. This customer-oriented site quickly became a gateway to general brokers and general agents as well. We provide a response in principle within 72 hours to holders on this type of risk.

Every year we we study just over 300 files which unfortunately cannot all give rise to a subscription: goods in poor condition, lack of fire extinguishers, impossibility of carrying out an electrical check under the age of 3 years. Insurers are becoming increasingly vigilant.

We may offer you to use ours active partners nationwide who will control yours electrical and fire prevention systems (eg. IPSI and VERITECH). The benefit is twofold: providing you with a quick fix and allowing you to have compliant files in sightget the best insurance conditions in this market.

Today we insure more than a thousand castles, palaces, estates and museums throughout France. The insured surfaces vary from 800 sq m to + 50,000 sq m. This can range from the Domaine du Champs de Bataille, in the Eure, owned by Jacques Garcia, to the castle of Saint Fargeau, to the Jardins d’Eyrignac, to the castle of Langeais. We go as far as supporting foundations and institutions in finding the best insurance investments for their monuments.

The last emblematic monument that we have ensured remains on my part, the castle of Millandes. This is the former property of Joséphine Baker in the Dordogne. Her owner has also created a museum where you can trace the story of this woman of multiple lives!

Much of his stage clothes are very well displayed. You can even see Josephine’s famous banana belt that made her so famous!
