Villa de la Croix Academy

Come and discover the backstage of our guest house, la Villa de la Croix

Because we like to transmit, meet, exchange and above all because we would have loved to have had this kind of support when we started, we created la Villa de la Croix Academy.

What is la Villa de la Croix Academy?

It consists of sharing our experience on the opening of a guest house. For 3 days, you will be immersed in our daily life and you will discover our history. So that we can exchange easily, we limit the number of participants per session to a maximum of 6 duos.

Who is la Villa de la Croix Academy for?

  • You dream of opening a guest house, a gîte or a bed and breakfast but you would like to understand what it really involves before you start?
  • You are going to open a guest house, a gîte or a bed and breakfast but you would like to benefit from advice on daily management?
  • You already own a guest house, a gîte or a bed and breakfast but you would like to better know how to manage certain tasks?

Our experience when creating our guest rooms

From our past as leaders in the Industry, we have acquired skills in project management, meeting facilitation, management, budgeting, seminar organization and stock management.

Surprisingly, these skills are useful to us on a daily basis and have helped us a lot in the construction of our project. We want you to benefit from that and share our experience with you in complete transparency.

An enriching and friendly stay near Troyes, in Aube

By participating in this course, you will discover our history, learn from our mistakes and save a lot of time because you will leave with a condensed version of all our experience.

You will also be able to exchange with us and the other participants. The goal of this training is that you can ask all the questions that come to mind and that you leave with a solid background of knowledge.

The objective, of course, is also to learn in a warm environment. This course will therefore be interspersed with convivial moments of exchange and sharing. For that, nothing better than to meet around a good course or a good drink, don’t you think? You will therefore be able to enjoy (as our guests do) our gourmet courses cooked with mainly local and always seasonal products!
