The group

The Arrelia company

In 2007, the Arrelia company was created. The name of the company comes from the word “Arrels” which means “root” in Catalan. Matthieu Blanc is a former clinic director who bet that many elderly people are independent and can continue to manage their homes on a daily basis. This is how the concept of Residences Services Seniors was created and corresponds perfectly to active people, not wishing to join a traditional retirement home.

The expansion of the company

The group is expanding with the creation of other serviced residences for seniors in Perpignan and Lormont near Bordeaux. In 2014, the Résidence Cœur Comédie in Montpellier was created on the same concept as the Mas des Arcades, adjoining a hotel.


Two years ago, Arrelia joined the Oc'Santé group. The latter has been developing experience in the health sector and medico-social establishments for several generations. This group includes around twenty establishments. Oc'Santé improves the services of our group through its know-how and its network.
