Our philosophy

The story of Les Tilleuls

Rest, recharge and reconnect

Surrounded by magical landscapes, we realize how important it is to take active measures to protect the environment and support local businesses. 

We consciously select all our suppliers to purchase environmentally friendly and local products. That is why we cook according to healthy guidelines and in direct link with our permaculture garden. 

Les Tilleuls is above all about taking care of our well-being and the well-being of our environment.

"Les Tilleuls is a place to live, a place of encounters, exchanges and timeless moments. I wanted to make this Norman paradise a place that authentically reflects the traits of my personality: a mix of hotel and restaurant, well-being and personal development, and cultural and artistic events in a warm, intimate, benevolent, joyful and friendly atmosphere. I wish to infuse the premises with my values and my passions, which evolve over time, in order to offer my clients the possibility of discovering and living each of these experiences."

Behind the scene 

Obelix fell into the pot of magic potion as a child, I fell into the hotel business.

Blessed by this universe, I took my first steps in the kitchen of my parents’ former Michelin star restaurant, L’Essentiel, in Belgium

Ever since a young age, I was driven by a desire for freedom, independence, and discovery, which has guided me on my journey of life. Accompanying my parents on many trips and galas around the world awakened my ambition to make my passion for the hotel business a vocation.

In 2012 I started my studies at the Glion Institute in Switzerland, recognized as the best hotel school in the world. I was excited to prove my skills and therefore began working at the foremost hotels worldwide, such as the Portman Ritz Carlton Hotel in Shanghai, the London NYC Hotel in New York and the real estate consultancy company CBRE Hotels in London.

Never been able to settle before, in 2018 I have finally found my second home in Paris. Today I am the proud owner of the Hotel Les Tilleuls in Etretat, France. In addition to being a globetrotter at heart, I am also a dedicated and inspired entrepreneur to create together the world of tomorrow.

However, I haven’t given up on my origins. I take care of the development and communication of our family business Maison Gersdorff, specializing in luxury hotels and restaurants with four establishments in Belgium and my first own boutique hotel, Les Tilleuls in France
