Voyage, voyage…

« From the age of 5 to 18, I was lucky enough to live between the West Indies and Africa, as my father, a former hotel manager for the Accor Hotel group, moved around. As a result, I evolved and grew up in large hotel complexes. These experiences have given me a unique perspective on the world of tourism, a world of passion.
What’s more, I also spent 17 years living in London, where I held several positions of responsibility in the hotel industry and corporate catering groups.
Organized and with strong interpersonal skills, I’ve always been recognized for my ability to analyze situations and unite my teams. I’ve learned that dialogue, involvement, exemplarity, accountability, and rigor are the essential levers that guarantee optimal facility management. »

Lulled by the classic automobile :

« Throughout my youth, I’ve been immersed in cars. In fact, my father finished his short racing career with his R8 Gordini, but eventually sold it to devote himself to his professional career.
I had an uncle who always bought the latest cars. For example, I remember the day he bought his first R25 V6 and its famous on-board computer. The car spoke for me, magic… Not to mention my father’s DS rides and my first time behind the wheel of a 2CV in the Nantals vineyards, all good memories…
In Senegal (between 1984 and 1989), during the Paris-Dakar Rally, we received the winners and their cars in a conference room at my father’s hotel. I felt like having them all to myself. A child’s dream. I was lucky enough to follow the last stage between Saint Louis and Lake Rose in a 4×4. Incredible memories! By the
way, I still have the photo of Art Vatanen and me next to his 405 T16! »

Ready for adventure !

« I embarked on this adventure out of passion for the classic car world and passion for the human relationship it brings.
I’ve lived it for the last seven years, and seeing the smiles on our customers’ faces every time gave me the shivers. Imagine 20 classic cars on the road at the same time. It’s a fabulous thing. We often got applause from people we passed on the road. Truth be told, it’s heartwarming, believe me. For the past seven years, I’ve been in charge of the commercial and logistical side of our events. As a result, I’ve built up strong, trusting relationships with the event agencies we work for.
Today, we want to give the best of ourselves to continue to make people dream by sharing our fleet of classic cars. «
