Attentif service

Together, we created CoconutSailing SAS in 2015 and work with passion on our catamaran since. Both former students of the Swiss hospitality business school École Hôtelière de Lausanne, this activity is the result of our experiences and our shared passion for traveling and hospitality. With CoconutSailing, we offer an alternative approach to tourism and traveling, that reflects our values: nature, sharing, respect and the french “art de vivre”.

Ever since I was a kid, I have always been fascinated by the world of the sea. Very early I have had the opportunity to navigate all sorts of ships on the Mediterranean and in Brittany. A born epicurian, I love meeting people, sharing and exploring. I’ll be delighted to help you discover the riches of our beautiful area, its fabulous lanscapes, its generous cooking and wines. I speak French, English,  German and Spanish.

Both adventurous and settled, I like taking care of my family and friends. I enjoy cooking, meeting new people and looking out for dolphins. Educated in the international hotel business, I combine my skills with my husband’s passion for sailing to realize our common dream of travelling, sharing good moments and living close to nature. I speak French, English, German and Spanish.
