The Founder and CEO of Vingt Paris, after relocating to the city over ten years ago, Susie’s knowledge of the city is unparalleled. In fact, she started Vingt Paris Magazine to share that knowledge with Paris visitors and locals. Managing a portfolio of properties all over Paris gives her the chance to see each neighbourhood from a local’s perspective, so she has difficulty choosing a favourite.
Rik runs a Concierge service in Paris and also works as a sales consultant with Vingt Paris. He can often be found in his favourite quartier, Le Marais “the Marais is much more than the hip upscale quartier everyone loves: it also has great history and pockets of shops and streets often missed by those who stick close to rue des Francs Bourgeois and Places des Vosges”.
Although she’s never lived in Paris, after working with Vingt Paris Jay has got to know the city – she’s even learnt some French! She loves exploring the small streets, with cafés and boulangeries on almost every corner, discovering the rich culture and history of the city with each step.
Jill left Australia in 2012 to come to Paris for a university exchange at Sciences Po and was never quite able to leave. Now she writes about food, travel and design and assists Susie with all things editorial for Vingt Paris Magazine, while completing her masters in urban anthropology at EHESS.
Kevin Lovelady is an experienced IT consultant who lives in Liverpool, fondly recalling his days as a 14th arrondissement local. A self-confessed Francophile, Kevin’s favourite Parisian quartier is the Latin Quarter for “the romance, history and creativity – and for the jazz haunts”. When he gets the chance to come back to the city, he indulges in popular local pursuits, spending time on terrasses and people-watching.
