Towards a more united world

 

The Festival des Solidarités (the solidarity festival), taking place from 15th November to 1st December, will see La Rochellebecome an echo chamber to encourage better communication and more tolerance between fellow humans. The world is a changing place and things are really starting to happen around our La Rochelle hotel, just as elsewhere!

For its 21st national edition, the Festival des Solidaritésaims to create awareness of the value of mutual support and fraternity, and this is the 13th year that La Rochelle has participated. Our city will be hosting many events that, like those elsewhere in France, seek to provide information, questioning preconceived ideas and asking what we can do to create a feeling of solidarity in today’s world.

A fair trade and ethical market, zero waste and anti-waste workshops, an international mobility forum, a concert entitled ‘For your brother’,cuisine from around the world, an eveningof solidarity documentaries...the festival will includea variety of events for the enjoyment of all those who dream of a better world… in fact, for the enjoyment of all of us, as we should all work to make solidarity a reality. From 15th November to 1st December, some 30 local associations will present their ideas and actions for both the planet and the individual, inviting us to join this universal movement dedicated to preserving our environment and to helping others to have a better life.

Julien… ensuring a pristine hotel

 

Having joined the Cosy Hotels group last May, Julien Ferré has just taken on the role of Head of Housekeeping at the Saint Nicolas hotel. Let’s have a closer look at a man who is completely focussed on ensuring total customer satisfaction.

Having grown up in a family working in the hospitality industry, Julien ‘got the bug’ after doing a school internship in one of his uncles’ hotels. Following a vocational baccalaureate in hospitality, Julien, a native of the city of Rennes, pursued his professional career in La Rochelle. Along the way, through various internships, he discovered the role of Housekeeper. After successfully completing further studies in Hospitality & Catering, this young man then transformed the seasonal job at the Masqhotel, that he started last spring, into a permanent post. Initially as Assistant Housekeeping Manager, now as Head of Housekeeping for the Saint Nicolas hotel, this football and motorcycle fanatic manages and works alongside the entire team of housekeepers to ensure the rooms in our La Rochelle hotel are a model of cleanliness. Meticulous and fastidious, to the point of obsession, Julien ensures that everything is impeccable... from bathrooms to bedrooms, from welcome trays to furniture. For Julien, the service he and his team provide must be irreproachable and he believes there is no better reward than the satisfaction expressed by the hotel guests. For someone who has always enjoyed customer service to the extreme, this job is simply second nature.
