Founded in the 2007 Paris, Peplum is the reflect of a strong desire to shape a new generation of luxury travels and Bespoke itineraries (in France and worldwide), crafted after Mr. Quentin Desurmont's will.
Graduated from SKEMA Business School, that ambitious entrepreneur first got an MBA at INSEAD for then being in charge of Disneyland Paris marketing effort as its Director for France.
Successfully gathering achievements in its successive missions, Quentin figured out, as he was turning 40, how to use the wide experience he built over years of activity as a Marketing Director and Company Director in the Fashion industry, both in Barcelona and London. Choosing to give birth to a structure he can be proud of, he created a high standard travel agency that is aiming at crafting unique voyages, helping people to make meaningful memories.
France: the refinement of a deep culture, the elegance of luxury experiences and the subtleties of its Fashion world are the prime ingredients Quentin has got the chance to learn about for decades. The French heritage and art legacy along with an epicurean lifestyle like no other are the very magic features, transmitted by his family and personal network, he came to realize are worth sharing with the wealthy foreign families that are willing to discover and adopt the French "art de vivre". Therefore, the seed was planted: Quentin started to dream of creating an outstanding set of travels in France.
It had to take, though, a long time exploring a great deal of hidden places in France for Quentin to develop and consolidate that vision in order to come with an actual plan. That way of thinking, that pushed him to constantly update his knowledge and understanding of French culture and territory, can be found in his saying:
We like to share exceptional and exclusive moments of our unique culture with refined travelling families.
We like to think that a travel itinerary should be built like a story: love, romance, history, adventure, discovery, mystery and fiction should always be at the heart of a travel adventure.
Besides, Quentin Desurmont is no stranger on the international scene of the luxury travel industry. After he created Traveller Made in 2013, the first non-American and widest travel network community around the world in his niche, the visionary entrepreneur has never ceased to share his vision in international travel media through self-financed studies and researches.
Aware that an international team is one of the corner stones of a successful agency, for the best collaborators can be from anywhere, Peplum is used to build a multi-cultural crew with a few things in common: the love for travels, explorations, discoveries of new “unheard of” experiences, off the beaten tracks, and the most devouring passion for meaningful and untold stories, hiding among the details of History.
Therefore, our team constantly looks for new activities, new gems and treasures to be unveiled all around France along with the very reasons that make the travellers heart beat.
