About Nicole

Melbourne's go-to Frenchie

If you look at Nicole’s background, it’s no surprise that she exudes a unique passion for all things French. Her mother, Suzanne, is a sophisticated, Parisian-born woman. Nicole shares her mother’s love of cooking, French music and fashion, and was brought up speaking only French at home. 


In fact, it was actually Suzanne who coined the phrase the ‘Paris end of Collins Street’ when her family were the first in Australia to place French cafe tables in front of the family owned and run ‘Ress Oriental Hotel’ in Collins Street, Melbourne.

Continuing to pursue her love for all things French, Nicole went on to study French at the University of Melbourne, live in Paris and travel extensively - developing an even greater love not just for the French language, but for the culture too.


This is also clear in her professional life, where Nicole has worked with many iconic French brands including Veuve Clicquot and Laurent Perrier Champagne Houses.


After 25 years of Hotel Management and empowering young people to excel in the field of hospitality, it's clear that Personal Concierge is the perfect description for Nicole. She knows where to find the best food, wine, shops, photo opportunties, whatever is your whim. Join a Walk the French Talk bespoke Tour or French class to experience the true romance of France. All you have to do is arrive.
