The Baverez family hotel group owns the three remaining five-star hotels in Paris, the Raphael, Regina and Majestic Villa Hôtel-Spa.
Véronique Valcke took up the reins in 2010 to continue the family tradition and perpetuate the myth.
At 46, the managing director has both taste and character. she is also the mother of three girls and like her mother, Françoise Baverez, has a taste for challenge and hard work, refinement and elegance. Her primary focus is the values of a group that this year will be celebrating its 120th anniversary and also to defend a name and an identity that have carved out an international reputation for the welcome reserved for their guests and one-of-a-kind French elegance.
