WHAT IS A PERSONAL CONCIERGE?
A Personal Concierge is a personal assistant, a luxury service that can help you complete all your tasks. This service is usually associated with that of a butler or assistant service offered by a hotel. But the truth is that it goes further.
From Luxury Moments Group we have designed packages that adapt to all your needs, so that you can count on your concierge during the hours you need it or on specific days.
The French word concierge is likely derived from the Old French cumcerges, itself related to the Medieval Latin consergius or the Latin conservus (“fellow slave”).
Another possibility, suggested by French authors as early as the 19th century, is that “concierge” is a contraction of comte des cierges (“count of candles”), a servant responsible for maintaining the lighting and cleanliness of medieval palaces.
In medieval times, the concierge was an officer of the king who was charged with executing justice, with the help of his bailiffs. Later on in the 18th century, the concierge was a high official of the kingdom, appointed by the king to maintain order and oversee the police and prisoner records.
Since 1900, this figure has been perfectly integrated into the structure of the hotel staff. Today, concierges are even associated around the world, their motto is “service through friendship”.
A modern concierge may also serve as a lifestyle manager, like a secretary or a personal assistant.
