Lodging and tourism real estate

Historically specialised in tourist lodging, and more specifically hotels, IE TCH has progressively developed a comprehensive expertise in tourism infrastructure in a broader sense: apart-hotels, campsites, golf courses, thalassotherapy institutes, spas, convention centres, casinos, etc. This extensive industry knowledge enables us to incorporate all the tourism components likely to directly or indirectly influence a given territory in our assumptions and conclusions. It also provides us with an accurate vision when advising on resort-type projects that group different types of tourism infrastructure (spas, golf courses, conference centres, etc.): appreciation of how these structures complement each other, definition of the key success factors to optimise synergies between each, etc. .

  • Hotels

    With almost 17 600 establishments and 637 000 rooms at the beginning of 2015, the hotel sector constitutes one of the main generators of visitor flows in France, and a significant driver of revenues and jobs for the tourism industry. The industry has faced a number of substantial challenges over the past few years, whether these be complying with the new norms or adapting to rapidly-changing consumption patterns.

  • Apart-hotels

    In early 2015, In Extenso TCH tallied 2 600 apart-hotels or similar, grouping over 180 000 studios and apartments. Predominantly located in coastal areas and ski resorts, the development of supply has been largely influenced by a succession of fiscal incentive initiatives. These incentives have reached their limits, and value creation now depends to a greater extent on the operation and commercialisation of apart-hotels by specialised groups. Over the past 20 years, apart-hotels have appeared in main cities, providing an alternative to traditional hotels for multi-night or long stays. This specific market is the subject of an annual study, the latest edition of which was published in June 2015.

  • Campsites

    Campsites are a vital part of the lodging landscape and are particularly popular with tourists. This implies a professional approach to quantifying supply, marketing and management. Our teams can help at every stage – from creating or updating a site, to marketing the final product.

  • Golf

    According to the French Golf Federation, the number of golfers in France reached 407 569 in 2015 : +40% compared to 2000, illustrating the sport’s constant popularity. Today, golf is the 4th most widely practiced individual sport in France, after tennis, judo and horse riding.

  • Wellness

    The wellness market has traditionally comprised spa resorts and thalassotherapy institutes. Such establishments are undergoing a radical transformation in the face of a number of challenges: the scaling down of Social Security reimbursements for hydrotherapeutic treatments, increasing national and international competition, an ageing client base, etc. This transformation has led to the arrival of a new market entrant: the spa.

  • Restaurant industry

    The restaurant industry is a significant contributor to the French economy, generating 50 billion euros per year. The sector has always played a vital role, as it concerns an essential need: feeding oneself. Added to this is a strong qualitative and cultural dimension. The restaurant industry combines passion and extreme precision. The economic equilibrium specific to the profession is complex and requires fine-tuning so that the notion of service and savoir-faire can be transformed into commercial success.

    The identification of a need and the presentation of an overall service offer are the two key pillars of success for any project in the sector.
