From an ocean to a lake, Jérôme grew up in the Canary Islands before moving to Chambéry and training at the hotel school in Thonon-les-Bains. His experience at the Noga Hilton in Geneva was the launch pad for a promising career, gently redirected by the passion he shares with his father for cars. Together, they opened the first SAAB dealership in Chambéry and then managed three of the prestigious brand's branches.
When they met, Charlotte and Jérôme quickly realised that they had much more in common than just their mutual feelings for one another. They both share an appreciation for things done with love, have an almost childlike enthusiasm for life, value refinement without ostentation, and the exclusivity of tucked-away locations that exude charm. During their honeymoon, they came up with the idea of a style of hotel that reflected their personalities, but did not yet exist, and where friendliness and the personal touch would reinvent the codes of luxury.
