Who are we ?

“To share one’s knowledge and passion for France’s artistic, cultural and gastronomic heritage” was Olivier’s purpose when he founded ArtLuxury Experience™ in the dawn of 2014. The respect and love for the values of traditional Art de Vivre which have driven him so far are deeply rooted in his personal background.

A resident of Paris for now 30 years, his acquaintances have provided him with a unique network of partners: veritable ambassadors of France’s time-honoured culture who share the values of excellence and refinement that ArtLuxury Experience™ embodies.

Combining tradition and modernity, his travel agency is an innovative concept who thrives with the sole ambition to have you live your dream in Paris as a privileged Parisian. As Olivier says:

“Make Paris yours”

We invite you to the magic of our Paris

What makes us unique?

Thanks to his own and exclusive network of partners, appointed experts, graduated historians and professionals, classified historical site owners etc ….  as well as his personal touch and passion for History, heritage and French Art de Vivre, Olivier ensures that ArtLuxury Experience™, is offering unique and unforgettable experiences, quite often confidential or “under the radar screen”!

All our tours and experiences are fully taylor made upon your wishes and desires, indeed we even try to offer beyond your expectations!

Certainly customer testimonials are much better than self-promotion to reflect our promise, therefore please find here below a selection of those posted in our Testimonials page:

Regena: “I cannot speak highly enough of you and your services. You curated the experience of a lifetime for me, my staff, and our 70 students that we brought with us to Paris. You are more than a tour guide – you are a historian and a true gentleman of the highest order, you will stop at nothing to deliver a magical experience for your clients. You met every one of our (sometimes outrageous) desires with enthusiasm and expertise, and over-delivered at every turn. We are already beginning to plan our next trip with you, and trust we will have many more adventures to come.”

Debra: “… As I am in the travel business and only focus on high end travel, I am well aware of the value of well placed connections and a talent toward subtle social skills.  You are a master of both and I was so pleased that you were bestowed so much attention from the most beautiful goddesses. I was also gratified to see that my suggestion and introduction of Satya resulted in a visit to the atelier of Chanel with Regena and a few other goddesses.  I like to see myself as a bridge. Seeing a need and an opportunity and putting them together.  Again, of this you are a master. This was my first time to Paris with this group, and while I have been to Paris many times, I have never seen such elegant details attended to by a most elegant escort.”

Zoé: “Art and luxury describes our tour perfectly. Olivier got us access where mere mortals are unwelcome, and he secured hosts and guides of unparalleled caliber. Not the highly trained tour guides we expect for our pretty penny, rather world-class experts and the owner of the most phenomenal private palace, which has been in his family for generations. Olivier, you were the epitome of grace and hospitality, and we absolutely adore you. I will certainly be in touch when I come to Paris again.

Patricia: “How can I ever thank you!  You have created a personal relationship between France and myself that I will forever hold in my heart.

As you know, I came with a large group of women, and with a group of that size, I never expected the type of personal and curated experience you offered.

The tour of Maxim’s you arranged, with such a knowledgeable guide, brought the entire history of this iconic restaurant alive. Walking from room to room made me feel like just around the corner I would or could see anyone from Marcel Proust to Sarah Bernhardt to the Duke of Windsor with his famous bride, Mrs. Simpson.   I have taken many tours through many countries, but this intimate tour, with a guide who knew every detail and was able to wonderfully share that, was very magical.   It was truly an immersion in another time, so much so that when I stepped outside, I was a bit shocked to see it was 2015.  I really wanted to turn back and just have a few more minutes to savor that wonderful  place in time your guide so eloquently portrayed.

Your other excursions were equally magical.

The tour of Nicolas Fouquet’s  beautiful Vaux-le-Vicomte , which you so cleverly arranged at just the perfect time of day, so that we could see the grounds, explore the interior, and then as night descended, enjoy the 2,000 candles that were lit on the sweeping  staircases and grounds, followed by a climax of  fireworks lighting up the gardens and fountains was breathtaking.   I don’t know how you did it, but your arranging our group’s introduction to Jean-Charles de Vogüé, whose family owns this priceless piece of French history,   was so very thoughtful.   His words and passion for this beautiful property were so evident and started our tour in just the perfect way.

The Hotel la Paiva experience and the excellent guide you arranged, made me feel as if I was intimately acquainted with that famous woman myself.   I had actually passed that location many times during my time in Paris and never knew what a tantalizing experience and unbelievable treasures lay behind those doors until it was revealed by you.  That brought a time in history alive for me.   Thank you.

Our experiences flowed so smoothly, and our tours as arranged by you, brought the very best of France, from the 1600’s to the present, alive in a  special, memorable and very fun way.

I want to personally thank you for everything that you selected for our group and your care and attention to us while we were there.   You have forever changed my relationship, view, and love for France.  I can’t wait to return!”

Danny: ” ….It was indeed a unique day. Not only visiting new sites I would have never reached without you, we met wonderful and truly nice Parisian people with interesting stories and that added a remarkable impact on the tour.”
