What have been your biggest challenges? How did you overcome them?

Our biggest challenge was securing that first offer. We fortunately had a unique opportunity in November 2013 to sign 40 properties in Saint-Tropez. Thanks to this, we were able to create a unique offering in South of France and got our first clients for a great first summer season.

What have been your greatest successes?

To create those exceptional travel experiences, we needed an amazing team full of creativity and dynamism. We are very proud to have built such a great team, without them nothing would be possible.

What are your top tips for SMEs?

I think success comes when you really believe in what you are creating and the brand marketing you are building around it. You should never be afraid of failure and invest in the right people as early as possible.
