Chapô Julô's history



This animal farm was built and farmed by a local family at the end of the 19th century.

Several years after the farming end, a parent undertook the first floor renovations in order to live in it. But over the generations, the family has grown. This is why, in the middle of the 20th century, in 1960, the renovation was extented and a building of 425 m² space on 2000 m² of land grew up.

The various local artisans were mobilized to carry out the builiding taking care to the authenticity of this house.

The historic occupants leave the region for professional reasons, decide to sale this large family building where many works remain to be considered to finalize its operation. It was then that Eric and Véronique saw in it a magnificent opportunity to carry out their plan for an holiday accommodation for all

It was during a mountain bike ride that Véronique and Éric stopped in front of this farm in Giez, attracted by the stones and the wood of a real Savoyard charm.

This accommodation, designed and built together, fits perfectly to Éric and Véronique, in the sharing and family spirit.

That is why he needed a name representing all these symbols. It was therefore through their two respective children that they found inspiration (Charline, Lauranne, Juliette and Pauline).

The association of the contractions of these first names gave birth to the Chapô Julô which is the color of this united blended family and of this first common project. You will find besides in this lodging many nods to these 4 girls who inspired the accomodation construction, the names of the rooms for example…
