Enjoy the Glamour of Paris

When a friend recently asked for advice on what to do during her upcoming trip to Paris, it was obvious who she should speak to — Gwen Books, the lifestyle management expert that the Bay Area’s most influential people call on for assistance.

Any typical tourist can tromp through the museums, galleries and designer shops of Paris, but there are those who want something a bit more exclusive in nature. Gwen goes all out in creating a special experience of glamour and style.

“I arrange access to inaccessible venues, organize meetings with masters of French luxury, and provide guides to personalized visits off the tourist path,” Gwen tell us.

Inside Coco Chanel’s Apartment

She can provide day trips to the Champagne region with a vintage luxury car, with driver. She can arrange private visits to meet the people behind Boucheron, dinner or cocktails at the Pierre Berge-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, or a rare tour of Coco Chanel’s legendary private apartment.


Gwen can set up a chorus line class with the Lido’s artistic director, Pierre Ramert. She can make it possible for you to cook with world-famous chefs Alain Passard or Phillippe Legendre in their kitchens. Gwen can even provide access to the hidden cellar at the George V, where you can enjoy a rare private wine tasting.
