Hôtel Atlantes - Charente Maritime (17)
Ils avaient pour projet d’acheter un camping et finalement ils ont acheté un hôtel aux portes de Royan en Charente-Maritime.
Il leur restait encore 15 ans de vie professionnelle à faire avant la retraite, Dominique et Véronique vous racontent leur reconversion.
Gérer un hôtel, c’est une expérience unique, chaque jour est différent. Si on avait pu le faire plus tôt ! Aujourd’hui notre métier nous permet de pouvoir gérer librement notre emploi du temps.
À ceux qui hésitent encore à franchir le pas, Dominique et Véronique disent : "allez-y, allez-y et faîtes-vous bien accompagner !" Ne visez pas trop haut pour une première expérience, un hôtel bureau d’une vingtaine de chambres pour un couple, c’est bien.
Allez-y, vivez votre rêve, achetez un hôtel !

“Financial investment in a hotel allows you to build a solid capital base, and at the end of the project, if you want to stop, you have two options:
- you can sell your business and continue to receive rents that will allow you to have a comfortable retirement
- or sell everything and make other investments.”

Camping Le Montet d'Oléron - Charente-Maritime (17) - France
Catherine had 10 years of experience working for the Accord Group, and Laurent was an IT executive for 25 years.
To be able to buy a camping, there is a compromise to be made between your financial capacity and your criteria. Being supported by a specialized agency like GRAVITAO, helps limit the risks for the first-time buyers.
Laurent recalls his past life and says that at the end, being a high-level executive does not represent much humanly speaking, compared to his new life and his new profession of a camping manager.
For these two camping owners, customer satisfaction is an immediate feedback on their work. There is no monotony, no “typical” day for a camping owner. You have to be ready to intervene. To manage a family-size camping it’s like if you invite people over to your home!

“DO IT! DO IT, you'll see it's a great profession!” answer Laurent and Alexandre.
Partners and co-managers, they have fallen in love with the establishment and decided to buy their hotel in a quarter of an hour.
“It’s a job that offers a lot of freedom that you couldn’t have in some other activities. We never felt like we had a hotel but rather a big house where we received people. We're so happy, we’ve never really felt like we were actually working.”
“Hotelier is a versatile job, it's a great adventure”, “You have to love people.”
“If we had to do it again we would do it again, it's the profession of tomorrow.”
