Our Team

The Tourist Office staff

Who we are?

A team is above all people.

If the human factor is now a recognized element in the world of work, it is essential in the tourism professions.

Our team has been working together for over 15 years.
This longevity has made it possible to create fund projects and to set up new services.

Here is a brief presentation of each member of the Mende, Cœur de Lozère Tourist Office and the know-how that each puts at the service of tourism professionals, travellers, holidaymakers and Lozère residents.

Géraldine & Riccardo


Travel advisor at the Tourist Office, Géraldine, originally from Mende, knows the smallest alleys and corners of her city.
On sunny days, she likes to make new discoveries and does not fail to criss-cross the department to rediscover Lozère.
For fun of course, but also to better inform holiday visitors.

Géraldine is also the “tourist tax” referent of the Community of Communes Mende Cœur de Lozère.
