Personal Paris about me


My name is Nicole. I was born and raised in the south of France. I attended university in London and later visited many countries including the United States, from New York to San Francisco. I moved to Paris over 30 years ago and began my career in luxury hotel hospitality, followed by the fashion industry. I have worked at the famous houses of Dior and Chanel in PR and Haute Couture as well as with leading French ready to wear designers in corporate communications and event planning. I have a true passion for art, French history and art de vivre and I was fortunate enough to take the prestigious Art History course at the Ecole du Louvre (the University of the Louvre Museum).

Why did I decided to create Personal Paris? I realized that I have something special to offer: I am an insider, I am out in the City of Light every day, experiencing all of Paris’ charms: from new restaurants to unique exhibitions and spectacular events. I am a traveler myself so I understand your priorities when you are on a special trip. I have a great professional network here and, last but not least, I speak fluent English.

Every day I marvel at my beautiful City of Light, stopping to take photos and admire how the view is always changing depending on the light, the season and the weather. Paris is beautiful all year round and there is always something exciting going on, whether at a 17th century mansion or in a brand-new concert space.  I adore sharing my passion and joie de vivre with visitors, whether it’s their first time to Paris or their 100th. With me, you will have a completely unique and authentic experience, getting to know Paris and her secrets with a local!
