CECILE ANTONI

Travel Designer

Cecile was born in Mexico City to a French father and a Mexican mother. This biculturalism brought her close to France and led to a special interest in art, gastronomy, and l’art de vivre. It was for this reason that as soon as she finished high school Cecile decided to move to Paris to better understand her roots and to explore Europe.

Cecile studied Graphic Design and Fine Arts at Universidad Iberoamericana. While working on her thesis, she spent several months exploring new cultures. Cecile lived in Havana, Cuba, for a few months and visited the region of Mérida, Yucatán, where she discovered its ruins and haciendas while working on a photography collection for artist Michel Zabé.

In 2002, Cecile moved to Stanford, California, where she lived for two years. She then went on to live in Madrid for one year and in Paris for another year. During that time, her passion for travel was born, and she decided that her life was meaningless without constantly exploring new places. Her fate led her back to Europe – Spain and France – for one year. In Madrid, she completed a Master’s degree in Art Restoration at the Reina Sofia University.

She has been fortunate to explore many places around the world with her husband and four children. Travel is a fundamental part of her family’s lifestyle.

Cecile is curious, sociable, and passionate. She loves to spend time getting to know what clients really want from their trips. Thanks to the patience she developed during her Master’s degree in Art Restoration, she has a gift for tirelessly searching for the perfect option for each person and understands the almost inexplicable emotion attached to each experience.
