The history of the Roussillhotel group begins in 1960, with Guy Lormand and the founding of the hotel Le Lido, the first seaside establishment in the Pyrénées-Orientales to offer a swimming pool! Over the years, he developed his park by buying and modernizing existing brands, building new hotels and enhancing the offer with thalassotherapy-spas, a golf course, restaurants including one starred in the Michelin Guide… In 1982 he created Roussillhotel which unites all the companies under the same label and complementary structures (the Blanchisserie Hôtelière du Roussillon, the real estate agency Tagerim).
Guy Lormand’s children (Alix, Etienne, Thibault and Xavier) have, over the years, taken an increasingly active part in the management of the park: now, they preside over the destiny of the group while managing certain establishments " live ”. This continuity guarantees the sustainability of the spirit instilled from the start, that of the French hotel tradition of quality and facilities, combined with the simple idea of “a family that welcomes yours". These concepts are prevalent in hotels and are passed on to all work teams (up to 400 people in high season).
If the traditional hotel industry remains the heart of the group's activity, Roussillhotel has developed over the decades a comprehensive package to satisfy all types of clientele. With an offer ranging from two to five stars, the hotel stock already meets all demands in terms of budget. But stay-related behaviour is changing rapidly.
Several establishments offer apparthotels or give the possibility of privatizing pavilions.
The group has also launched several residential real estate projects.
Through its history and its running, Roussillhotel carries its strong family values of solidarity and proximity to its social, economic and cultural environment. The group participated in the creation of the Val d´Aurelle Foundation (funding for cancer research). In the cultural field, Roussillhotel supports the Visa pour l'Image festival, Les Déferlantes d'Argelès-sur-Mer, the Théâtre de l'Archipel ... Finally, the group supports several sports clubs, amateurs (Elne JSI rugby club and Sainte-Marie / Canet-en-Roussillon, the Club Aqua-Sports de Saint-Cyprien) and professionals (USAP and Dragons Catalans).
Roussillhotel has implemented a global action strategy in the context of environmental protection.
