Who are we ?

Who are we ?

The hotel business is a superb and totally indispensable part of the travel and tourism chain. Airlines and tour operators have had to adapt to survive, but no matter how you get to your vacation destination, accommodation is a must.

By considering only “triple A” locations in French tourist and business destinations, we create a real estate portfolio that is enhanced and maintained through rigorous operations.

Real estate is at the heart of our strategy without ignoring the value of retail. By optimizing and bringing in our management and distribution know-how, we also create value in the fund.

Our team covers the full range of skills required to successfully complete our acquisition and management of our own and third-party hotels.
