Originally from Belgium, married to a Brit, and residant in the Vendée for several years, Rita is passionate about cats. She has dreamed of opening a cat hotel for quite a while.

Passionate about cats since she was young, she launched Calypso – Cat Hotel in November 2018 and is proud to look after your cat during your holidays, vacation, travels or medical interventions.
