A little history

Charlotte Paget is the protagonist in this artistic venture, and here is how she describes (on her website) her inspiration to start up the 🎨 Chalet des Créateurs« Ma motivation première est de répandre l’énergie créative des talents français et locaux que je rencontre et ainsi vous faire découvrir le fruit de leur audace.  À travers ma galerie-boutique, je vous embarque dans l’univers de créateurs passionnés ». (My primary objective is to spread the creative energy of the French and local talents that I meet, and hence to enable you to discover the fruit of their innovative work. Through my gallery-boutique, you can enter the universe of these passionate creators).

Charlotte decided on 🗻 Saint-Gervais-Mont-Blanc, at the foot of Mont-Blanc, to bring her idea to fruition and she chose an old 20th century family saw mill (scierie), the first in Haute-Savoie to use electricity rather than water power, to house her venture.

Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc: a melting pot of art & creativity

Charlotte and her team chose a location in 🗻 Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc to showcase their project . . . recently, this 🗻 alpine town famous for its thermal springs, has become a 🎨 pioneering contemporary artists’ hub, with its mayor Jean-Marc Peillex backing several innovative projects:

  • 2KM3 (street art at the newly renovated multi-storey car-park (2017) and swimming pool frescos, télécabines art and La Poste (2018);
  • Pile Pont Expo (the exhibition space in one of the two pillars of the viaduct);
  • the exhibition space in the Maison Forte de Hautetour;
  • the new La Cure;
  • the Salle Géo Dorival;
  • the open air museum in the Parc Thermal in Le Fayet . . . (see here for more details);


In the gallery-boutique of the 🎨 Chalet des Créateurs, you will find all sorts of artistic creations: paintings, photography, greeting cards, jewellery, home-made beauty products, «c’etait hier» products (traditional artwork), interior design items, children’s toys, fashion goods and even craft beer and other food!
