Hospitality stems from the History of France. In the Middle Ages, young gentlemen traveling the world, diplomatic emissaries and princes stayed in the most beautiful residence in town and the most important people fought for the honor of being able to host them.
Human values were the ones that gave it this reputation for excellence.The French art of hospitality is mainly founded upon guest satisfaction. Hosts must thus possess specific qualities that Vatel strives to develop for its students during their schooling: respect, discretion, an open mind towards other cultures, a desire to please others and create an emotion, knowing how to be a good listener, how to warmly welcome others, having a sound general culture, etc.
