A graduate of France’s insead business school who has lived in the French Alps, in Paris, and on the Côte d’Azur, Preston prides himself on delivering exceptional access and experiences (making croissants with a Parisian baker, for instance, or taking a cooking class with a chef at a Michelin-starred restaurant) to his clients. He knows the country’s influencers and tastemakers, and is able to open doors that are typically closed to travelers, including a marquis’s private estate just outside the City of Light.
Special booking: Preston can set up private shopping experiences and behind-the-scenes tours at Christian Dior and Hermès in Paris. Jewelers at Lorenz Baümer take his clients to their creative studio to see intricate works as they’re being created.
