About us

As founder and editor, I (Francois Le Hecho) embody The Luxe Insider by being its main contributor. I am a luxury professional based in Paris with 9+ years of experience, passionate about this industry and customer experience, that’s why I founded this blog in early 2013.

Originally, I focused only on my luxury trips and year after year I extended the scope of The Luxe Insider. Today I am highlighting everything related to five-star travels and lifestyle, with the help of talented writers coming from Australia, India, UK and North America.

I am also doing some exclusive interviews of luxury industry insiders, high-end lifestyle addicts or simply chic world travelers.

What is our purpose ?

The objective of The Luxe Insider is to highlight what the market has the best to offer in term of luxury travel and lifestyle through personal reviews, without commercial and brand-defined contents. I always experiment myself the places or luxury goods I intend to review, and I require the same from my writers; this is absolutely key for me.

Another important point: whatever articles are sponsored or not, they always reflect our sincere opinion.

Which brands work with us?

We are regularly collaborating with public relations, marketing and press managers from many renowned (or emerging) hospitality & lifestyle brands worldwide. This relationship is essential to keep visiting stunning places and experiencing unique moments – because it has a cost – as well as getting behind-the-scenes comments from insiders.

Here below is a non-exhaustive list of amazing companies who trust The Luxe Insider:
