Candice PINONCELYOwner of the Hameau
Candice is a lifelong skiing, horseback riding, travel and adventure enthusiast. She oversees the entire operation of the HAMEAU DE MARCANDOU. A Savoyard by all but birth, she first spent her summer and winter holidays in Courchevel before making it her home all year round.

Her extensive professional experience as a production manager in event agencies combined with her keen interest and passion for “off the beaten track” adventures led her to travel the world.

Her all-or-nothing, meticulous character is reflected in the décor of the HAMEAU DE MARCANDOU, which she created from scratch, with flair! With the help of Olivier Gay (architect and childhood friend), Candice has taken particular care to imbue the hameau with a meaningful narrative: “the dream world of the mountains” as she imagines it. Her keen eye for detail and her taste for originality combine to create a world reflecting not just her knowledge and imagination but also her pragmatism.

Ultimately, the HAMEAU DE MARCANDOU displays its exceptional decoration, a fanciful world that subtly carries you away to a timeless magical place. An extraordinary tale told in a unique setting, a memorable affair to experience!
Marc LAZZARONIOwner of the Hameau
Marc is a native son of Courchevel and a high mountain guide with UIAGM certification. He grew up in a family with roots in Courchevel for several generations. In fact, the HAMEAU DE MARCANDOU is built on a family plot of land. His Alpine heritage combined with his entrepreneurial spirit were both consequential to the idea of creating something on this “pretty little piece of land”.

An ambitious project – without being conspicuous or ostentatious - with a genuine desire to welcome guests, family, friends, and vacationers alike, to share his appreciation of the mountains.

Marc continues to cultivate this vision with his clients around the world on ski and adventure trips throughout the Alps and even to Arctic regions.

Marc is always at your disposal to share his passion and offer invaluable advice to help you discover the mountains and the Courchevel resort he loves so much in a whole new way.

Les NavettesSignature fixtures of the Hameau
The presentation of the HAMEAU DE MARCANDOU team would be incomplete if we didn’t mention our two shuttles!!

The most emblematic is an electric vehicle from Zermatt. A shuttle unlike any other whose unique appearance adds much to the hameau’s notoriety! Imported from Switzerland with you in mind, its look delights adults and children alike. An undeniable success since it first appeared on the roads of Courchevel, it has become an iconic emblem of the HAMEAU DE MARCANDOU.

Fun, comfortable, clean (no combustion engine or exhaust fumes), easy to board even with ski boots (low ground clearance), group-friendly (sits 7 people) and reliable (weight and technical sophistication) make it the key to your safe, silent comings and goings on the winter roads. Your transfers to and from the slopes fully embody our notion of mobility in a mountain village.

To take you beyond Courchevel village, the HAMEAU DE MARCANDOU also offers the "Caravelle" shuttle. A comfortable and flexible vehicle for up to 6 people, it has been completely redesigned to give it a unique and remarkable style: classic MARCANDOU!
