The structure of the Chevotel is more than 80 years old and the hotel and stud buildings are under monumental protection. In the 60’s and the 70’s the King of Spain’s horses were trained here. Up until 1995 the property belonged to the Lombard family, serving up until then as stud and family seat.

The property, which by then was quite run down, was purchased by its present owners, the Rapp family, and completely restored. The renovation work lasted until 1998 and the Chevotel Hotel opened in the year 1998. Also the renovation work on the exceptional park was completed at the end of 1998. The Hotel is located within a private stud which is about 30 hectares in size. Here the Rapp family breed international-class racehorses. To this day several Chevotel-group horses have won and made it onto the rostrum in France, England, Hong Kong, USA and Dubai. The typical Norman structure of the property has been retained and is furnished with loving attention to detail. The maintenance and preservation of this extraordinary place is of particular importance to the owners.
