Mehdi El Mouttacil, 2nd year Bachelor student, internship at the Sources de Caudalie
Welcome to the Palace Les Sources de Caudalie. It is here, in the heart of the vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, in the Bordeaux vineyard, that Mehdi El Mouttacil performs his late 2nd year internship at the Luxury Hotelschool hotel school.
A professional immersion of 6 months in a 5-star hotel dedicated to the French art of living, including the Spa Vinotherapy® Caudalie, the La Grand'Vigne restaurant (2 Michelin stars), the Auberge La Table du Lavoir...
“Above my internship coinciding with the reopening of the hotel, I took a week of intensive training with HR, Reception and Accommodation departments to soak up the environment, the establishment's own luxury codes, and take over the customer relationship management software. A week already very rich in teaching for which the Luxury Hotelschool prepares us very well.”
As soon as the Front Office Manager Assistant took over the Easter weekend, the Palace's 61 rooms and suites were complete, giving him the opportunity to quickly gain field experience. Reception, follow-up housekeeping, coordination between the kitchen and the room service... “I enjoy a real versatility and appreciate being challenged on these different prerogatives by managers who gladly transmit their vision to me.”
