The Originals City Relax'Otel, Le Barcarès

Relax'Otel The Originals City

Though he had worked with hoteliers for many years, Christophe Gatteau still hadn’t taken the plunge. In spring 2019, he finally dived in. He is the co-owner and manager of The Originals City, Relax’Otel, Le Barcarès, a three-star hotel with 41 rooms in north-east Perpignan. “I have worked closely with the luxury hotel industry for many years but I wanted to start out in a more traditional structure.” In recent years, though renowned in the south-western town of Le Barcarès, the hotel had been somewhat abandoned. So Christophe began a major phase of renovations to transform the lovely two-floor ochre building into a charming urban hotel. Covering more than 500 m2, the SPA has been completely revamped. Director of France’s SPA label for more than ten years, Christophe is something of an expert in the field. Another of the Relax’Otel’s strengths is its team: warm, friendly and attentive for a relaxing stay in every sense of the word.
