How it works at Audley
At Audley we've been building and managing luxury retirement villages for over 20 years, but our experience in providing high-quality retirement properties and care for older people goes back much further. In fact, it was in 1983 that our present day Chief Executive, Nick Sanderson founded a company called Beaumont which, over time, developed the conventional care home concept into something completely different: the UK's very first luxury retirement villages.
Over 30 years on, we have grown to be a successful company with two property brands in the UK, Audley Villages and Mayfield Villages, and EVIA in Denmark.
An Audley retirement village is a purpose-built beautiful and secure collection of houses, cottages and apartments, which are available to buy if you are over 55. At the heart of an Audley retirement village is a centrepiece building with facilities including a restaurant, bar bistro, lounge, a health and wellbeing centre, treatment rooms and a swimming pool.
You buy and own your own retirement home, in a beautiful and secure environment, and because it is your house, you don’t have to give up the things you love, including your pets. Plus, you have the added luxury of having your gardens and property maintained for you.
ARCO Integrated Retirement Communities
Integrated Retirement Communities are still a relatively new concept in the UK. As a result, there is a need to promote understanding of the advantages they offer and to ensure consistently high standards of service in retirement villages across the UK. To this end, in 2008, we joined forces with other reputable organisations in the field to form the Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO).
