Book your evening

Your experience will start with an enchanting ride on a rack railway that will take you to Haut-de-Caux, where you will enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramas in Switzerland at an altitude of 1200 meters. On arrival, you will be greeted as if at home, since the chalet is still inhabited by Thierry Amsallem, the former companion of Claude Nobs, current owner of the chalets.

These two chalets, "Le Picotin" and "Le Grillon", which have seen a large number of famous artists visit there, contain many personal objects that belonged to Claude Nobs. Recorded in Montreux, the album Jazz is a direct reference to the Montreux Jazz Festival.

In this intimate atmosphere and surrounded by collector's items, you will spend an evening that is truly out of the ordinary.
