Who are we?

Novela Cuba is a French tour operator and specialist in Cuba since 2001.

It is therefore as connoisseurs of this destination and as passionate specialists that we have thought up our Cuba offer.

Novela Cuba is a high-quality selection and booking platform.

Our structure

  • An office and customer service in Paris for advice and sales
  • An office and customer service in Havana for the follow-up of your trip with our concierge service.
  1. 1. You are an individual traveler
  2. 2. You are a professional (Travel agency)

Our activity is twofold:
Novela Cuba, a specialist in the hotel distribution, accommodation, and car rental sector in Cuba, addresses two types of customers.

  • “A la carte” sales: directly to the public through our online agency via our website www.NovelaCuba.com for individual travelers, or directly with our sales representatives for groups.
  • Sales to professionals, travel agencies

Novela Cuba is particularly known for its car rental activity in Cuba, which has been one of our strong points since our creation and has made our reputation.

Over the years, we have also developed other services that meet the needs of individual travelers or groups, as well as the needs of our travel agent partners.

Our asset: to offer an after-sales service thanks to professional customer service based on real know-how and a long experience.

The Novela Cuba signature:
To propose a very large, high-quality offer of services and an outstanding service.

Our main partnership is with the Cuban tourism group Gaviota for all our activities and more specifically for car rentals, hotel reservations, and our group service.

We have also established a relationship of trust with the owners of the houses in our selection, our guides, and our drivers to ensure continuity in the quality of our services.

Our founder

Our agency is the fruit of a love affair with Cuba, that of its founder Stéphane Galazommatis.

Holder of a master’s degree in archaeology (University of Paris I), he made his first trip to Cuba in February 1995 during his studies. Several associative trips will follow. Then in 2001, he created the Novela travel agency.

Today his passion for the country as a whole and its inhabitants, in particular, is intact.

Stéphane divides his life between Paris and Havana to run both offices and strengthen the links with his various local partners.
