“I want to be there for every single guest, from when they check in until they check out, so that their stay here is a memorable one, whilst my wife concentrates on cooking up delicious food”
Samuel loves the mountains, and had over 15 years of experience in other rolling uplands before coming to The Originals Access, Hotel Foix. Spurred on by his love for his work, he is always striving to make his guests feel at home: “I am supported by a passionate team in making my guests my number one priority from the moment they arrive, be it morning, noon or night”. Surrounded by the wild beauty of Ariège, this 2-star hotel is only 2 minutes away from Foix town centre, and 90 km from Andorra.
