Chalet "Eugénie"

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, House, Historic district, listed, 19th C in Vichy
  • Inspired by the Swiss chalets at Arenenberg, where the Emperor spent his childhood, it was completed in 1864.

  • A wrought-iron E, the initial of the Empress surmounted by the imperial crown, adorns the transom of the entrance door. This letter is a reminder of who it was intended for. Its elegant architecture, with its lacy wood cornice, openwork gables with decorative trefoils, balustraded balconies, reception rooms, dozen or so bedrooms and openings onto the park, was not enough to seduce the scorned noblewoman. Eugénie de Montijo never returned to Vichy.
