A key player in the hotel and restaurant industry in the Occitanie region, this independent, family-run group has built its development on the commitment of its staff and a passion for the hotel business shared from generation to generation. In 2008, Cité Hôtels decided to position itself at the top end of the market and in the luxury segment.
The group now manages six hotels in historic locations, five restaurants, including two gourmet restaurants recommended by the Michelin Guide in Carcassonne, Toulouse, Figeac and Ax-les-Thermes. The group also owns a Brasserie with an Occitan flavour, a bakery in the heart of the medieval city and has acquired a catering company, l'Atelier des Saveurs by Hôtel de la Cité, which operates throughout the Occitanie region.
