Resort Manager

Originally from Normandy in France, Aurélie studied tourism and started her career working in travel agencies in France. Encouraged by her brother to join the hotel sector, she joined the Royal Barrière Hotel in Deauville, part of the Lucien Barrière group. This unique property on the Normandy coast is where she met her husband to be, Damien.

Passionate about travel and discovery, in 2004 Aurélie decided to join her older brother (a gourmet chef at the Carl Gustaf hotel) in warmer climes. She joined the Carl Gustaf team, taking care of reception, reservations and concierge. In 2005, Aurélie furthered her career by joining the commercial team of Hotel Guanahani in St Barths, where she spent 15 wonderful and very rewarding years managing the individual and group reservations department.

In 2019, Aurelie and her family  moved back to the Bassin d’Arcachon, near Bordeaux in France, for an Assistant Management position in a small hotel group in South West France. Aurélie and her husband returned for a vacation to their beloved St Barths in March 2022 and realised how much they had missed the island and island life. In the Summer of 2022, they decided to return to settle in St Barths with their beautiful family, and Aurelie joined Laurie’s team, at Ilets de la Plage, as Resort Manager.

Above all, Aurélie loves meeting guests, getting to know them, and ensuring they get the absolute best out of their vacation. Aurelie enjoys working with and encouraging her team. Backed by her 20 years of experience,  commitment and dedication in the hotel industry, Aurélie seeks above all to please customers, and is committed to their well-being and to doing everything possible so that guests naturally feel they are in their home from home.

Aurélie is very organized by nature… no choice as a mother of 4 children, including triplets!!  She has always been able to combine her personal and professional life with ease, with a shared love for her professional career, her family, her taste for sport, her friends and her life on the island.

Delighted with her return to Saint Barths and her new position at Les Ilets de la Plage, where simplicity, authenticity and guest wellbeing reign, Aurélie simply cannot imagine any other place on earth where she would prefer to be…
