Susie HOLLANDS
Susie HOLLANDS
CEO & Founder

The founder and CEO of VINGT Paris, having relocated to the French capital in 2003, Susie’s knowledge of the city is unparalleled. In fact, she started VINGT Paris Magazine to share that knowledge with Paris visitors and locals.

Managing a portfolio of properties all over Paris gives her the chance to see each neighbourhood from a local’s perspective, so she has difficulty choosing a favourite. Like a true Parisian, she also appreciates both the highs and lows: From the buzz of the Marais on a Friday night and the hustle of the Saint-Ouen flea markets to the formal beauty of the Palais-Royale and a moonlit stroll along the Seine River, there’s a Parisian experience to suit every mood.

Her constant energy is inspired by creativity, ideas and culture, one of the things that Paris has in abundance. Managing VINGT puts her into contact with many amazing people and places, and she appreciates the unique relationship she has with the city.

Favourite local bar?
With my job, everything is local, so it depends on where I am in the city! Le Meurice – downtown – or Le Mary Celeste.

Favourite local café/restaurant?
Maison Plisson for fresh healthy food, otherwise falafel or fresh oysters and seafood from the market..

Local indulgence?
Fromage!

Guilty pleasure?
Listening to Cheri FM and their amazing selection of ’80s French pop.

The best thing about your quartier?
Being so close to two great markets – Marché d’Aligre and Bastille.

Renato TAGLIAFERRO
Renato TAGLIAFERRO
International Sales

Born and raised in Bologna in Italy, Renato has been living in Paris for over 16 years, having previously lived in both London and New York.

With a vast experience in the global art and real estate markets, he has cultivated over the years a passion for painting, architecture and history, and developed a certain sense of aesthetic “mission”. An excellent communicator and naturally good-humoured, he has always appreciated the contact with clients interested in sharing with him projects, small or ambitious, and always tried to explore together the best way to achieve them.

His knowledge of Parisian life, both historical and sociological, is a key factor in developing a deep understanding of the needs of each customer and often to creating a long-standing relationship.

Favourite local bar?
Everything that is facing the water. I am in love with the river Seine and consider it to be, by far, the most beautiful ‘street’ in Paris.

Favourite local cafe/restaurant?
Of course, they are a well-kept secret, but, to give a hint, my favourites are almost all situated on the Rive Gauche… I can however confess that the setting of LouLou’s terrace in summer is simply breath-taking. In terms of restaurants, everything associated with the South West’s cuisine du terroir and with the tasty and authentic Burgundian culinary tradition has always made my liver smile with guilt.

Local indulgence?
As an Italian rather used to the diversified architectural beauty of my country since a very early age (and, for this reason, quite difficult to be impressed; what a presumption!) – I nonetheless cannot stop repeating that strolling on the banks of the Seine – whatever weather conditions – really defines my (tackily stereotyped) idea of Paris. But it is really undeniable that this magic river and its UNESCO-protected banks are something unique in the world. And it is not by accident that the Louvre, the Île Saint-Louis and the Sainte-Chapelle, along with the Musée d’Orsay and the Petit Palais, certainly my favourite historic landmarks in the Ville Lumière, are never very far from the placid waters of the river.

Guilty pleasure?
Too many to be mentioned on a public platform.

The best thing about your quartier?
The quartiers change (unlike the individuals after a certain age) and the individuals often change quartier… What we liked in our quartiers in the past may not be what we mostly appreciate now. Having lived in several quartiers since 2002, why not come and discuss the where’s, how’s and why’s with us on one of the many terraces of the many quartiers of this beautiful city?

Aleksandar KATATIC
Aleksandar KATATIC
International Relocation

Born in Serbia, Aleksandar has travelled extensively since then – and, as such, he considers himself a ‘citizen of the world’. Originally graduating in Tourism, he spent five years working in real estate in Madrid as a customer service specialist. He moved to Paris in September 2018, as a client of VINGT Paris, subsequently joining the company in international relocation. Now happily settled in the Marais, he is married to a Spanish fashion photographer and they especially enjoy walking their dog along the Seine.

Favourite local bar?
I really like the appropriately-titled ‘La Favorite’, which is just steps away from my home. It got my attention because always when I pass, there are people laughing, there is great draft beer and a sunny terrace in the mornings.

Favourite local café/restaurant?
After living in various countries around South and East Asia, I fell in love with their food. So, I love to jump into all those small, random and unknown places along rue Montorgueil in the second arrondissement.

Local indulgence?
I love the fresh morning croissants from the boulangerie in front of my apartment in rue du Vertbois, in the third arrrondissiment especially on a Sunday morning.

Guilty pleasure?
I am a chocolate freak, so I like to walk down the rue de Bretagne, in the Haut Marais which is close to my home, and just check into all the patisseries, one by one.

The best thing about your quartier?
Le Marais is a perfect, very cosmopolitan and artistic neighborhood. Every day, I find some new cool shop, gallery or conceptual bar. Also, the Seine is close to my home, where I love to walk with my wife and dog.

Bar La Vue at the Hyatt in Paris has the most amazing view. I go there at least three times a year for a little luxury indulgence and to take in the most incredible, breathtaking view of Paris.
