The Chauvin’s family’s story
History backgrounds !
To know the origins of the “Complexe Le Lac” we have to go back to the beginning of the 20th century. In a Haut-Doubs’ typical farm, the Magrin family opened the Hotel Beau Site and the Restaurant du Tramway, which corresponds to the left side of the Hotel Le Lac as we know it today. In 1939, during the Second World War, the Hotel was requisitioned by the German army, who transformed the dining room into a garage.
