An ambitious goal of restoring this Megève icon to its former glory.

The iconic Megève.

Once a small farming village, Megève is now an iconic and world-renowned ski resort. From generation to generation, Mont d’Arbois has always retained its distinctive character, thanks in no small part to the talented architect Henry-Jacques Le Même.

A architectural gem created by a design duo.

Two visionaries joined forces to design an architectural masterpiece.  One was Jean Walter, a Parisian architect who was renowned for his bold and avant-garde brilliance, and the other was Henry Jacques Le Même, a well-known figure in Megève.

Domenica Walter, a one-of-a-kind collector.

Juliette Lacaze (1898-1977), nicknamed Domenica, first married to Paul Guillaume, a famous French dealer and collector of modern art, remarried to Jean Walter, converted the Chalet de l'Inconnu into a home for part of her furniture and art collection. The Collection totaled nearly 150 masterpieces (Picasso, Renoir, Soutine...), is recognized as the most representative of 20th-century art and is now housed at the Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris.
