Sophie Raabe

Sales and Marketing Manager

I was born in Meudon, next to Paris in 1982. After my A level, I left for Lyon to do a degree in hospitality and restaurant management at the Institut Paul Bocuse.
As I went along this three studying years, my passion for the hotel business was born.
Helping my clients and making their stay a special moment is from then on, my objective.
After a training at the Lancaster in Paris at the front office and at the accounting department at the Saint Barth Isle de France hotel, I decided to come back on this great island to meet my partner with whom, I now have two children, Thomas and Jade.
When I arrived at Ici et La in 2004, I was in charge of the arrivals, then I quickly did the reservations and I now manage the weekly villa rentals department, the business development and the marketing of the agency.
The villa rentals world, grew considerably all over the world between 2000 and 2010 is now definitely the one I like the most. I am convinced and seduced by this accommodation type offering at the same time the hotel services, the diversity and the privacy of a personal home.
Very grateful and delighted to be able working everyday on new ideas and taking up challenges, I’m constantly searching how we could improve the services we are proposing.
Sincere and rigorous, I out all my energy to make my clients satisfied.
I wanted to thanks our clients, our travel agents and our owners for their confidence.
