Global Launch of New Platform

August 16, 2018

The ceremony included famed keynote speakers and announced its plans to donate a percentage of profits to promote world peace and care for the environment.

PARIS, FRANCE – May 31, 2018 – Pied à Terre kicked off its global operations with an official launch ceremony celebrating the new home sharing platform’s innovative take on the growing international business of hospitality and positioned the company as a powerful contribution to the high-end B&B market.

The event featured two extraordinary speakers: Ami Vitale, a celebrated National Geographic photographer and Nikon Ambassador, as well as Céline Cousteau, an explorer, filmmaker, philanthropic entrepreneur, and granddaughter of the legendary Jacques Yves Cousteau.

They discussed the company’s socially responsible spirit based on a unique mission to create a powerful international community of Hosts and Travelers. A community that, as ambassadors and citizens of the world, help to promote Pied à Terre’s charge to create a better world through tolerance, art, humanity and ecological and cross-cultural values.

The first award ceremony for “The World We Live In,” an international photography contest, sponsored by Pied à Terre, was presented by Vitale. The coveted first place prize went to Fabiola Cano of Costa Rica. Her haunting photograph of a refugee camp in Greece captured the solitude and sorrow of people forced to flee the horrors of the Syrian war.

To conclude the event, President and chairman of the Board, Francisco de Paula León, personally thanked the ceremony’s international participants and discussed the company’s positive projection for the next 12 months and his goal to reach 21 countries. He made special note of Pied à Terre’s pledge to invest a percentage of all future profits to promote ecological and cultural initiatives around the world. A promise that aligns with the spirit of the company.

The Way of St. James

July 20, 2018

For more than 2000 years (since the pre-Christian era) “El Camino de Santiago” has been the most emblematic pilgrimage and travel experience in Europe. This amazing route is a journey of enlightenment, self- knowledge, and self-discovery.

El Camino de Santiago crosses different parts of the ancient world, along the way there are a set of lodges specially constructed for the attendance of pilgrims. These set of inns carry on an incomparable mystic vibe that goes beyond its physic amenities and gives an exceptional sense of warmth.

Pied à Terre as part of its Brand design adopted the famous pilgrim’s shell; the shell carried for centuries by ancient travelers who followed the Milky Way up to the end of the world in Finisterre. This shell appears on our logo as a way to express the special philosophy that inspires our company.

With this philosophy in mind, we’ve selected El Camino de Santiago as Pied à Terre ’s signature route. To book or get more information about El Camino de Santiago, visit our Routes section.
