Christina Bailey grew up with an affinity for the rich French culture. After spending summers in France during her youth, she turned her life long dream into a reality and moved to Paris in 2016. Previous to that, she worked and studied in Los Angeles, California where she attended UCLA and received degrees in Education, Cultural Anthropology, International Communications, and Archaeology. She is a San Francisco Bay Area native who enjoys running, volunteering for various organizations, and discovering new cuisines and hot spots.
Upon arriving in France, Christina was so thankful for the help she received while getting settled in to her new home. Her goal is to extend these efforts to a broader range of people looking for direction, whether through property management or restaurant suggestions.

Samara Senoville’s arrival in Paris follows the typical expat story: come to study and stay for love. After meeting her restaurateur husband during her semester abroad, Samara finished her studies at Loyola University in New Orleans and moved back to Paris permanently. Having spent her childhood moving around from Montreal to Toronto, Switzerland to Costa Rica, California to New Orleans for school, and over to Paris after graduation, the expat life is the norm for Samara, and she’s thrilled to help others make it their norm, as well.
Samara bounced around in the events industry before finding Savoir Faire Paris. She worked for a wedding venue in New Orleans as an events manager, interned with the Super Bowl host committee, and did PR and events management for restaurants around Paris. She loves to seek out the newest trendy restaurants and stay up to date on the happenings of Paris. On weekends you’ll find her playing with her whippet, Jack, in the Tuileries or sipping wine on a terrace at a local café.
