LE CHATEAU DES RAVATYS, WINE ESTATE, BECOMES A DOUBLE GOLD MEDALIST.

OCTOBER 2022

The Chateau des Ravatys estate, acquired in 2020 by Jean-Claude Lavorel, was a great opportunity to launch himself into a new world, far from the hotel business: the wine sector.

A lover of challenges, his ambition to make this estate a recognised place was quickly realised.

The know-how and knowledge of Aurélie De Vermont, the estate’s oenologist and operations manager, enabled Château des Ravatys to win a gold medal for its wine “Beaujolais Brouilly Les Marquisats” at the 2022 CWSA (the most influential award in the field of wines and spirits).

The efforts of our teams have paid off:

Whether it is in the regulation of the harvests, which aims to obtain the most eco-responsible and qualitative harvests possible, or the techniques of vatting in tuns or oak barrels using gravity to the maximum.
Thanks to this, the quality and reputation of our wines triumph in the Beaujolais region. We would like to thank all the people who have worked and collaborated to achieve this result!

We make it a point of honour that our medal-winning wines reflect our commitment and values. As a result, our estate is certified High Environmental Value (HVE) level 3 and our vineyard is in the process of being converted to organic farming.

LAVOREL HOTELS IMPLEMENTS AN EXCEPTIONAL ACTION PLAN TO ADDRESS THE LABOUR SHORTAGE IN THE HOTEL AND CATERING SECTOR

JUNE 2022

According to the latest estimates, between 200,000 and 300,000 seasonal jobs are still to be filled for the 2022 season. Job offers have been multiplying since the beginning of the year and few establishments are not struggling to recruit.

It is important to innovate and to remember that “hotel business” and “quality of life” are compatible. For this reason, Lavorel Hotels is doing everything possible to improve the working conditions of its teams.

A committed entrepreneur who is attached to human values, Jean-Claude Lavorel decided from the start to turn the group’s DNA towards people. “From the hotel manager to the chambermaid to the head office team, each person contributes to the building.

This is why Lavorel Hotels is revolutionising its working conditions and setting up an action plan to attract new, passionate and competent employees.

First of all, pay levels were increased in April. Also, from 1 July 2022, employees working at weekends, on public holidays and during breaks will be rewarded with bonuses. Finally, a profit-sharing scheme will be introduced by the end of the year.

And despite the group’s expansion, we want the family spirit to continue at the head office and in the establishments. Lavorel insists on the transparency of information in order to integrate each employee as much as possible. Although this takes place in the daily meetings between the teams, it is also easier to establish over a drink or during an activity. This is why we make it a point of honour to regularly organise convivial moments such as team building, afterworks or staff parties with the aim of bringing teams together in an informal setting conducive to exchanges.

These moments also help to strengthen the team spirit and build a relationship of trust between managers and employees. In the same vein, we offer our employees “live my life” days to discover the range of jobs on offer and to gain a better understanding of each other’s daily lives. The principle is simple: two people decide by mutual agreement to exchange jobs for a day, giving them time to discover another environment, other missions, another team and to better understand each other’s problems.

It is also important for us to offer a pleasant working environment: in view of the range of destinations offered by our establishments, everyone should be able to find the place that suits him or her: by the lake, in the mountains, in the heart of a dynamic city or in the middle of the vineyards… There is something for everyone. We make sure to welcome our employees in the best possible way, and to provide them with pleasant spaces: harmonious offices, equipped accommodation, rest rooms, canteen, etc.

To date, two of our establishments have been equipped this year with connected fridges filled daily with fresh and varied balanced dishes. Also, a professional reflexologist is available every Friday for 30-minute massage sessions offered during the working hours of our staff. They are free to book a moment of relaxation to disconnect for a while.

THE 5 STAR PALACE DE MENTHON ACTIVATES THE SUMMER MOOD

JUNE 2022

A few days ago, Le Palace de Menthon officially launched the opening of its beach restaurant! This evening was the occasion to launch the summer season, and for good reason… On the programme: arrival by boat, cocktails, planks of mignardises and live DJ music!

The 5* Palace de Menthon in Annecy has always been keen to do things in style!

In an exceptional setting, between lake and mountains, it reveals a 5-star setting in the heart of a sublime private park. It has been one of the most prestigious establishments in the region for over a century. This architectural jewel has 66 renovated rooms and suites with spectacular views of the translucent waters of Lake Annecy and the surrounding countryside. A private villa, with its feet in the water, completes the hotel’s accommodation offer for a stay in complete privacy. A treasure trove of history that invites contemplation, ideal for a true moment of escape.

There’s plenty for gourmets too:

The incredible panoramic view of the restaurant promises lunches bathed in light and dinners punctuated by the spectacle of the sun setting on the shores of the lake. At the table, the plates of the bistronomic restaurant are first devoured with the eyes; then light and unusual flavours awaken the taste buds.

Feel like a light lunch on the terrace by the water? The beach restaurant is for you! Enjoy a moment to yourself: sunbathing, cocktails with your feet in the water, a paddle session, a rosé pool with music in front of the sunset… You won’t be able to resist the charm of this special place.
