Maisons Pariente,
A wonderful family venture

Patrick Pariente, who now heads a real estate group, first co-founded Naf-Naf with his brother in 1973. Twenty years later, after selling the brand to Vivarte, he then shifted his focus to real estate before creating luxury hotel brand Maisons Pariente with his two daughters, Leslie and Kimberley.

With a penchant for exceptional locations, bespoke service quality, friendly ambiances and a passion for contemporary art, Maisons Pariente was born out of a desire to explore a new and bold approach to hotel hospitality by adding a twist of zest, to host differently, as though at home, and to create a unique identity for each legendary place.

AN out of the ordinary...
Ultra-modern vision

 

From fashion to hospitality, the Pariente family has a long-standing passion for grasping current trends, detecting the desires of the times. With hotel projects in exceptional locations, Maisons Pariente puts its all into every venture, to create unique hotel identities in perfect keeping with a particular location and the expectations of today's travellers.

The secret? A little imagination and a lot of empathy: to come up with the dreams, experiences and surprises that will resonate with guests, and will create immediate sensations, the joy of being there at all times, the magic of unforgettable memories.

Proven know-how in the art of hospitality

Maisons Pariente relies on a team with complementary expertise to devise each hotel's identity and bring it to life every day. With a clear positioning, its exclusively five-star hotels are designed to resemble private houses, each with their own unique and special identity. There is no "copy-paste concept" applied across the board, but an entirely individual approach for each and every hotel.

Leslie Kouhana

The eldest of the Pariente sisters started out in asset management at a major international commercial real estate company, Unibail.

She went on to join the family business where she has worked to develop various real estate and hotel projects for 15 years. For each project, she builds and manages the teams, coordinates the contractors and selects the talent to create the identity envisaged by the family.

The close collaboration with the Oetker Collection for L'Apogée Courchevel made her a genuine expert in the luxury hotel industry and eager to launch Maisons Pariente, the family's self-designed hotel collection.

Kimberley Pariente

Kimberley began exploring the world early on, spending eight years in the USA between New York and Los Angeles.

First a student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, her first professional experiences were in fashion and entrepreneurship, with a furnished holiday rental business in Los Angeles.

With this international experience under her belt, she joined the thriving family group in 2015 as Artistic Director of Maisons Pariente.

Up to the minute with the latest trends, her main focus is the identity of the hotel projects, their market positioning, promotion and sourcing.

Frédéric Picard

With five hotel openings to his name in France and abroad, Frédéric Picard has managed premium establishments for independent owners and major international groups (Kerzner international, Oetker Collection, Jumeirah, Intercontinental).

His experiences in France, Morocco and Dubai have made him a genuine expert in the luxury hotel industry. He now works with Maisons Pariente on all its new projects.

Frédéric has relished the challenge from the beginning with a strong commitment to creating timeless hotels where guest well-being is a priority for all involved.
