The birthday party in full swing at Badi Enge

Last week we organized a successful 30th birthday party for a client at Badi Enge. We only had 4 weeks to find a venue and plan the party but what counted was the end result and the client was very happy! The whole party was also delivered under budget and with no stress to our client so she could enjoy her birthday party. Allow Me sorted the DJ, venue, drink, food, hotels for guests coming from out of town and the after party at Aura in Zurich on the VIP guest list –  we also planned their recovery brunch on the Sunday at Terrasse! This is what she had to say about the service Allow Me delivered: “Chris organized my 30th birthday party here in Zurich. He took care of each and every single detail, was very professional and very responsive at any time. I would not have been able to organize such a big party in addition to my daily work and I am thankful to now have amazing memories of my birthday thanks to Chris.”

Swiss National Day on the 1st of August is a huge event in Switzerland. If you thinking of having a summer party then why not ask Allow Me to help with all the preparation, invitations and even cooking or hosting so that you can relax and enjoy the party

Allow Me was lucky enough to be invited by a member last week on The Club GT Super Car Tour across Europe. We could only join for 1 day of driving but what an amazing day we had! We drove out of Germany and across into Austria to Sölden and over the Stelvio Pass in Italy driving on a road many regard as one of the best in Europe.  Then we crossed out of Italy into Switzerland and stayed in the 5* Grand Hotel Kronefhof just outside St. Moritz. If you would like to do an event like this, then please get in touch with Allow Me and we will make it happen for you!

Personal assistant services Zurich

What is a Concierge Service?

What is a Concierge Service?

Running a concierge company in Zurich and Zug I am often asked, what is a concierge service? What services do you provide? Is it just for the wealthy? Do I need to be a member to use your services? Today’s concierge companies offer a wide range of services to suit the client’s needs, ranging from personal concierge right the way though to corporate concierge for business – but each company, like it’s clients, is individual.

For Allow Me Lifestyle Management Services, our services range from finding a garage for your car to be serviced and helping with household errands, to booking private jets and 5* holidays. We also help companies to look after their employees and clients’ needs, helping with their events and any other services that they require. In a nutshell, there is no real limit to the services we provide, or type of person that we provide them for.Allow Me Concierge Zurich and Zug

The overall goal of a personal concierge is often to take care of all the little odds and ends that can get overlooked in the frenetic pace of daily life. A concierge can do tasks that might be time consuming (or simply boring) so that you have more time to focus on the things you want to do. We can also offer our expert view, based on years of experience, to save you time searching the internet or checking reviews.

So to answer the questions, Allow Me offers a dedicated lifestyle management and personal assistant service in Zurich, Zug, Thalwil and surrounding areas. We offer trustworthy, professional and efficient lifestyle management services so that you have more free personal time and peace of mind.

Our services are for everyone, are prices start at 40CHF an hour for members and the fee for non-members is worked out individual as each service is personal to the individual and varies depending on duration, complexity and timing.

 SOME EXAMPLES OF PERSONAL CONCIERGE SERVICES

We have helped many personal clients save money and time already – for example, we recently saved a client 5400 CHF on a garage repair bill. We also love to organize summer and winter dinner parties – we have a number of preferred private chefs, cookery schools, and wine specialists to call upon to help – and can even offer a spare pair of hands to help out during the event (serving, hosting or even helping with the washing up).  We have a number of excellent cleaners and baby-sitters on standby for any last minute requests.

Allow Me will take care of whatever needs to get done. The only limit to what we will do is the customer’s imagination (and the legality of the request!). We’ve even helped out with wedding planning!

Juggling daily responsibilities as an individual or as a family can be stressful and time consuming. We can help. Allow Me will give you back your most valued commodity — time. We work with all our clients individually and will do whatever is necessary to customize a solution for their needs.

First Annual Member’s Ski Day

What a wonderful day in the mountains

Everyone else had skied off……

Allow Me had great pleasure organizing our very first Member’s ski day last  Friday. With such great snow conditions and perfect blue skies it was a day everyone was looking forward to. I decided to go to Flims/Laax which is an ideal distance for a day trip from Zurich. The drive takes a little over and hour and a half and you get some breath-taking views along the way.

Upon arrival at Flims the slopes were nice and quiet and we set out to explore the mountain. Not only did we find run after run of fresh powder but the sun was shining and there were no queues. Flims/Laax is a huge ski area and there are so many hidden routes to explore. For the more serious freestyle skiers/snowboarders Laax boasts one of the best freestyle parks in Europe and you will be spoilt for choice. You have everything from the beginner park/pipe right up to the world’s biggest pipe and an amazing pro kicker/rail line. As we were powder hounds we left the parks alone and set out exploring the mountain.

Cassons was one area that we really wanted to ride as it’s famous for its long powder field and it’s very easy to access by cable car but due to dangerous avalanche conditions it was closed, however we found some great powder fields at La Siala then looping down to Grauberg.  After a morning filled with thrills and spills we had lunch at possibly the best mountain restaurant I have ever been to, Ustria Startgels. They have an open fire kitchen for roasting meat, incredible homemade pasta and very knowledgeable and friendly staff.  They are also open in the summer and I cannot recommend visiting enough. On weekends and busy days it’s always best to make a booking (which naturally, AllowMe can help you with!).

The afternoon was spent exploring the runs – we headed over to Crap Sogn Gion and were blown away by how big the area was. So if you’re stuck for something to do during the week or weekend we suggest you head over to Flims/Laax. Allow Me can help with all your ski break bookings during the winter and indeed summer season holidays, and with over twelve years of being professionally involved in the winter sports industry we will make sure you have a fantastic weekend break.
