What is a village?
The village is a unique place, located in splendid sites which, beside accommodation and catering, offer various attractions: entertainment, well-being, sport... To provide all these services, in all seasons, each village is organised so that everyone can express their talent within a well-defined and secured framework.
Around a village manager, a team of department managers consists of a financial manager, an HR manager, a technical manager, a hotel services manager and a leisure services manager. All of these 5 functions is called the G.5.
The existence of these positions varies according to the size of the village and services provided. In certain villages, if hotel services and/or leisure services manager positions do not exist, service managers report directly to the village manager.
