It was essential for us to respect the spirit of the Grand Véfour and the very special atmosphere of the Palais Royal. Our goal is to give pleasure and ensure the well-being of our guests in a comfortable, contemporary and friendly setting designed by India Mahdavi; a beautiful, collective adventure that has been rewarded,” said Guy Martin.
