Additional information

During this guided visit, you will discover important episods of the history of Combloux which forged its destiny.
You will start with the PLM building, at the entrance of the village. Built in 1909 by a rich Swiss owner under the name of "Hôtel du Mont-Blanc", it was bought in 1923 by the PLM corporation (Paris, Lyon, Méditerrannée). They transformed and extended it from 50 to 200 rooms.
You will then discover the regionalist villas: 5 chalets built in 1928 in a particular style.
Finally, you will take the shuttle to reach the "Manoir des Brons" where our heritage guide will tell you the history of the fox farms (les Renardières). Silver foxes were raised there for their fur and for reproduction. The director of the establishement ordered the "Manoir des Brons" construction and the road from the village to his home.

Comfortable shoes are highly recommanded.
