So yes there are facilities such as you describe but they are pretty rare here.
(BTW the larger resorts here are selling timeshare so they are not good investments.)
We had some friends when we lived in Germany about 20 years ago, and they had a similiar setup in Valencia Spain. The management company rented it for them when they were not there. So, I would imagine there are similiar setups many places in Europe. I like Spain for the beach and the realestate sux there right now, so you may find a deal where you can buy at a distressed price, or maybe not
