A verdant setting between lakes and mountains, the restful quiet of the mountain pastures, and a view over the Rhone. Welcome to Julien Gourjux’s hotel in Auvergne.
“I love the closeness to the guests, seeing our regulars every year or meeting new travellers.”
The hotel and catering business is in Julien’s genes. His father and grandmother before him were in charge of this same establishment. “I’m the fourth generation to keep the family business going, which is a source of great pride to me!” The Gourjux restaurant with its traditional and regional cuisine has been delighting the village of Champagneux and its surroundings since 1935. And the hotel, built in 1995, has attracted a loyal clientele, who enjoy coming back to stay in the 18 quiet, spacious rooms at The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Bergeronnettes, Champagneux. The appeal of this 3-star hotel in its verdant setting also lies in its warm welcome and attentive staff. And since family history must also be brought up to date, Julien has undertaken renovation work. “I’m trying to bring a touch of modernity, while retaining the warm, family atmosphere which is key to our hotel’s appeal.”
The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Bergeronnettes, Champagneux, makes an excellent stopover en route to a holiday in the mountains, in both summer and winter. The 18 rooms at this 3-star hotel are spacious and comfortable, and each has a balcony with views over the surrounding countryside or in some cases to the Rhone valley. Renovation work began in some rooms in 2018. A superior range is available, featuring more contemporary rooms fitted with a walk-in shower.

Both in the dining room and, in fine weather, out on the terrace, the restaurant at the The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Bergeronnettes will sweep you off your feet with its simple but delicious traditional cuisine. Most produce is locally sourced. In winter you’ll enjoy tartiflettes, raclettes and other Savoyard fondues, while in summer these give way to grilled meats and simply cooked fish. Frogs’ legs are a speciality available all year round. Every morning you can enjoy a buffet breakfast looking out at the beautiful mountains of Savoie. Drinks (cocktails, wines and hot beverages) are served in the hotel lounge from 8am to 10pm.
The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Bergeronnettes may be an ode to tranquillity, but its perfect location near Chambery opens up a whole range of activities, whether cultural, or leisure pursuits in the lakes and mountains.
The pool at The Originals Boutique, Hotel Les Bergeronnettes can be enjoyed whatever the weather. Located inside the hotel, it enjoys magnificent views over the surrounding countryside thanks to its large picture window with sliding doors.
