Attending the Ecole Hoteliere from age 16, Christophe Bacquie chose to follow a back-of-the-house position and train in cooking. Following graduation, he worked for 12 years on the island of Corsica, where he had been raised. 

While working for La Villa, Bacquie achieved his first Michelin star. In five years, he earned his second.

Moving on to the Hotel & Spa du Castellet in Provence, he received two stars for his work at what was originally Monte Cristo. Five years later, the restaurant was renamed for him, and in 2018, Bacquie was rewarded with a third star.
