E&V Kitzbühel invite guests to exclusive David Yarrow vernissage

From 16 to 19 January 2020, Kitzbühel became a stronghold both for polo and first-class art. And the common denominator in both of these was Engel & Völkers.

David Yarrow, one of the world’s most successful fine art photographers, flew in straight from a shoot in Chicago for an exclusive gallery show opening of his work in Kitzbühel. In cooperation with Engel & Völkers Kitzbühel, there was a seated dinner for selected guests on 16 January to mark the exhibition opening, which was attended by around 150 people on 17 January 2020 at the Kempinski Hotel “Das Tirol”. Together with Lars Beusker, the owner of the 159.gallery – and representing the artist in Austria, Germany and the Balearic Islands – guests were treated to selected and highly limited works by the photographer. The total gross revenue generated by the sale of works in the exhibition amounted to almost a million euros.

- From 16 to 19 January 2020, Kitzbühel became a stronghold both for polo and first-class art. And the common denominator in both of these was Engel & Völkers.

“We’re delighted to welcome David Yarrow here in Kitzbühel for the first time for an exclusive exhibition,” said Florian Hofer, Managing Director of Engel & Völkers Kitzbühel. “For us, the decision to work together was an easy one. A sensibility for beauty and aesthetics in art and in premium real estate are very closely associated,” said Constantin von Dalwigk, Global Head of Private Office Engel & Völkers. The first joint exhibition by Engel & Völkers and David Yarrow marks the beginning of a series of exclusive events.

At the same time, the Snow Polo World Cup took place for the 18th time just outside Kitzbühel. The event has a reputation for being the world’s largest polo tournament on snow. E&V Kitzbühel and E&V Munich once again joined forces for the tournament, sponsoring their own polo team. Around 15,000 spectators watched the eight teams compete against one another.

The “Tiroler Tageszeitung” newspaper picked up on both events in an article, giving it the fitting headline “Exklusive Kunst und schnelle Pferde” (in English:“Exclusive artwork and fast-paced horses”.

About David Yarrow

At the age of 20, David Yarrow worked as a photographer for “The Times” in London. Since then he has built a reputation for himself for capturing landscapes, cultures and endangered species. Philanthropy and conservation are central to the artist’s work. In 2018, the revenue from sales of his works amounted to 11.58 million US dollars (some 10.4 million euros). In the same year, charitable donations from sales of his works exceeded 2.1 million US dollars (some 1.8 million euros). All funds generated from his royalties also continue to go to Tusk, a leading British NGO dedicated to the conservation of wildlife in Africa.

Real Estate for Sale and To Let  with Engel & Völkers

Engel & Völkers Sara Grech is the luxury real estate agent that specialises in exclusive properties for sale and to let in Malta. With more than 30 years’ experience, we are one of Malta’s most successful real estate agencies

Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta is a thriving cultural hub that has long been a popular destination amongst expatriates and tourists alike. Partnered with the real estate agency Engel & Völkers, finding a property for sale or rent in Malta is a breeze, and in no time at all, you'll have a spacious apartment with a view or a villa with numerous bedrooms to call your own.

Living and working in Malta

Home to more than 450,000 inhabitants, Malta is the smallest country to join the European Union in 2004. In 2008, it became part of the Eurozone. Though Malta is well-known as a popular tourist destination with plenty of recreational areas and historical monuments including nine UNESCO world heritage sites, it is not known for its luxury properties and real estate for sale and rent! Besides having first-class accommodation, Malta is home to numerous companies and industries ranging from banking and financing to construction, retail, and i-gaming. Working in Malta requires the proper permits, and those seeking employment are encouraged to find a suitable job before moving into their purchased or rented property.

A new residency scheme was launched in June 2013 which allows people to buy a high-value property and pay taxes in Malta to benefit from the residence permit. Under the new Global Residence Programme, the value of immovable property bought in Malta by foreigners has a minimum threshold of €275,000. However, when the property is in the South of Malta or on the sister island of Gozo, the minimum value is reduced to €220,000. This new scheme also allows persons eligible if they wished to rent a property and this has been lowered to €9,600 in Malta and €8750 in Gozo or the South of Malta. The minimum tax to be paid under this scheme is a minimum of €15,000 on income derived in Malta, further income arising in Malta shall be taxed at a flat rate of 35%.

Real estate and property for sale and rent in Malta

Malta has several Special Designated Areas that offer a wide variety of properties to buy or rent! Whether you are looking for a new luxury apartment with views of the Portomaso marina or an expansive villa situated in Santa Maria Estate, our team will help you find a property for rent or sale that suits your needs. From apartments with a view to villas with several, we have it all.

After you've purchased property

For such a small island, Malta is packed with amazing things to see and do. From visiting historic sites to relaxing on beautiful beaches. Visitors can take their pick of activities which will suit any mood or taste.

A selection below are the top destinations that any person should see when coming to Malta. These include Valletta; Mdina; Paceville; Blue Lagoon (Comino Island) and Gozo

Valletta recently voted the European Capital for Culture for 2018 is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Valletta is the hub of tourism in Malta and for good reason. It is full of historical significance, with the likes of St John’s Cathedral, forts, and museums and much more squeezed into a tiny area. As far as beautiful towns go with plenty to see, Valletta is up there with the best.

Mdina is known as the jewel in the crown of Malta and it is a fair assessment. The walled city is full of tiny alleys which you can wind your way through, stumbling across beautiful churches and museums along the way. Now effectively part of the town of Rabat, this definitely shouldn’t be left off your Maltese itinerary.

Malta has a reputation for being a destination for the older generation, but Paceville puts lie to that. This is where the youngsters come to drink and party and you can rely on having a good evening out here. It’s not just loud music for teenagers either; there are plenty of civilized bars and restaurants if you don’t want to rave into the early hours.

A beautiful area of clear blue water which is fantastic for swimming and is the perfect place for a day out at the beach. Arguably the best place for swimming in the whole Mediterranean, the Blue Lagoon is located on the island of Comino.

Just a 30-minute ferry trip away from Malta, Gozo is a beautiful, rural island which gives you a glimpse into what Malta looked like a few decades ago. Sleepy villages, rugged coastline, and beautiful countryside all make this a fantastic place to visit. But one of the main draws is the diving off the coast. Malta has been named as one of the best places to scuba dive in the world, and Gozo is one of the best spots to do it.

No matter where your interests lie, Malta has you covered; with Engel & Völkers Sara Grech by your side, your home in this beautiful part of the world is also covered. Contact us today to find out more about our villas, apartments and other properties for sale and rent!
