dream. design. deliver

As much as I love Paris, I too have always been torn between the culture of the city and the well-being that nature provides. We can't escape the fact that without nature we'd have no culture, and the Nature that we have collectively neglected urgently requires restoration.

Now or never, I have decided to reconcile culture and nature in a place I've called Cantobria. I hope to welcome you there in 2023.

Entrepreneurial past and parallel lives

I created Paris-Sharing.com in 2010, roughly at the same as Airbnb and with the same idea, only with a focus on Paris. Several years later, the city of Paris banned the short-term rental of secondary homes, which was our primary market. The 2020 pandemic took care of the rest.

As a licensed real estate agent, I subsequently created Exquisite France, focused on sales and searches in France for an anglophone clientèle. France remains an attractive location for property investment and retirement.
