TOMO Hotelier

What do you consider your team’s greatest achievement?
The capacity to truly care and create authentic connections with our guests and to be part of their transformative journey.

What do you most value in a hotel for your own holidays?
Authenticity, passion, human connections, environmental integration and a true respect of cultural heritage.

What is one place nearby that every one of your guests should discover?
The medieval town of St-Emilion is incredibly well preserved and home to some of the greatest artisanal winemakers in the region. The majestic ruins of "la Sauve Majeure Abbey", 15 minutes away, is truly meditative.

What is your dream journey?
Going off the beaten track, with dear friends, plenty of supplies and discovering new places with our Jeep.

What local dish do you never tire of eating?
There are tons of amazing regional dishes..What we most fancy is a great Pomerol though.

What motivated you to become a hotelier?
We felt into the pot at a very young age. Our passion to welcome and to be catalysts of memorable experiences for our guests has always been the driving force of our hospitality career.

What was your greatest extravagance in creating your hotel?
Living, at the time of conception, 12.000 kms away from our property and having both full time businesses to run.

Where do you feel happiest on your property?
Hard to tell, everywhere. We like to call our house "the whispers of light", given the constant change and beauty of the natural light illuminating the gardens and all indoor spaces.
