It was at the “Clefs d’Or” National Union of Concierges’ Conference, organised at La Baule in 2006 by Stéphane DUVAL GOUNARI, who was in charge of a training project for future Hotel Concierges, that he asked Christian LAPÉBIE to join him in this adventure.

Christian accepted, convinced of the project’s merit and also passionate about passing on his know-how.

This was to be the beginning of 10 years of collaboration, based on listening, respecting and sharing.

Today, through Conciergerie 8e SENS, Christian and Stéphane make all their expertise in Luxury Hotel Conciergerie, their powerful network and quality services available to Companies and Private Customers, as well as Hotel managers.
