Vichy, France

History of the chalet

The chalet Clermont-Tonnerre, a listed historical monument, is located in the heart of VICHY, a spa town listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Chalet Clermont-Tonnerre is the 1st of the five chalets of Emperor Napoleon III and his suite in the heart of the parks of Vichy, on the banks of the Allier.

Called "Clermont-Tonnerre", the chalet was built in 1863 for Count Aynard de Clermont-Tonnerre (1827-1884), an officer of order of His Majesty, It is erected at the same time as the neighboring chalet "Villa Marie-Louise" housing of Emperor Napoleon III.

In the following years, three other chalets were built on "Boulevard Napoléon" (currently Boulevard des Etats-Unis).

The most illustrious guest of the chalet was Leopold (1790-1865), first King of the Belgians. He came in the summer of 1865 to meet Napoleon III.

A Gothic-inspired outbuilding was added to the property in 1905.

Only four owners have succeeded each other in 150 years, which explains its authenticity and the excellent level of conservation of floors and ceilings.

Today, we welcome you throughout the year in this place steeped in history, combining comfort, elegance and prestige!
