Club La Costa announces discontinuation of new timeshare sales

After a particularly challenging year, several weeks ago we advised all CLC members, staff and other stakeholders of the planned closure of our timeshare sales operations. The decision was then taken to place those timeshare sales companies and affected companies including Club La Costa (UK) Plc, into a controlled administration process; as when trading entities become unviable for an extended period of time the Directors have specific responsibilities that cannot be avoided and this was advised to be the most appropriate course of action. The closure of Club La Costa’s timeshare sales companies has no impact whatsoever on CLC World’s members, Real Estate owners, or their resorts, all of which continue as usual.

Despite COVID and the extreme travel restrictions it brought – our dedicated teams have navigated around openings, temporary closures and re-openings and CLC World has still managed to deliver over 100,000 holidays for members and guests worldwide in 2020 and has even added additional Club Resorts into regions where member demand suddenly peaked due to “Staycations”. For over 35 years, CLC World has been developing mixed use resorts in the UK, Spain, Austria, Turkey and the United States and this process of development and expansion will continue for many years to come, as will CLC World’s steadfast management of those resorts.

The Taste Durham board recognises Lumley Castle for the quality of their food and championing local produce. Enjoy light meals, snacks and Afternoon Tea in the Library Bar, a la carte dining in the Knights Restaurant, or perhaps even private dining in one of their exclusive dining rooms.

For a dash of culture, you’re spoiled for choice. View the contemporary Angel of the North up-close, or head to the 13th century fortress of Barnard Castle.
