Chef Jean Sulpice

With the seasons, Michelin-starred Chef Jean Sulpice cultivates a rare harmony with nature. His respect is permanent, paying it homage through a refined and audacious cuisine, as his terroir elegantly varies from lake and mountain to the hypnotic undulations of water and admirable hardness of the rock. Expressionist in its most poetic form, the age-long Auberge du Père Bise offers Jean Sulpice the privilege to reveal the Savoies beyond simple primary sensations.

The unreal in reality

Lacustrine pearl placed at the centre of the rocks, at times looked upon by the hills and then lulled by the rustling of the trees. Lake Annecy is always a bottomless source of inspiration and fulfilment. A water ring of infinite variations, where life comes alive to admire the mountains mirrored in it, where the aquatic horizon is a succession of delicate encounters between elements.

Along the shore, the junction between the “big lake” and the “small lake” is situated in Talloires, an unspoiled village, a true calming cove carrying from the tip of its bay the legendary Auberge du Père Bise. The ideal convergence point between what is cristalline and massive, and in this natural confluence precisely the flavours of Jean Sulpice’s cuisine emerge and express themselves. An unparalleled picture of life cultivating an infinite pursuit of taste.

Generations, one Auberge

A chalet by the water turned into an inn. The Auberge has become tradition. From 1903 to the present day it traveled through the ages constantly scintillating and pursuing its philosophy of the beautiful and the good, systematically embodying the right measure of its time, never denying the origins of its existence: that of offering a peerless place of rest to travellers.

In 1903, Marie and François, also known as “Le Père”, Bise found the Auberge. At the time, they simply offer drinks on the shores of Lake Annecy. In 1928, suave first steps and an established atmosphere will allow Marius – their son – to magnify the Auberge into a refined hotel. His wife Marguerite, who holds a position in the kitchen, gets three Michelin stars in 1951.

The sweet rumor of prestige goes beyond the rocky frontiers of the Savoies and seduces major figures of the time, who, charmed, breathe in this abode unseen spray, a unique scent. Later in the 60s, François Bise embraces the same success than his parents, with his wife Charlyne Bise at his side. In 1987, Sophie Bise stands by her mother, protecting the soul of the renowned establishment in Talloires. In 2016, Jean and Magali, freshly come down of Val Thorens freezy peaks, are given the Auberge. After major renovations works, the reopening takes place on the 5th of May 2017. With this brand new start the abode renew with its glorious past, 2 stars by the Michelin Guide and the title of Chef of the Year 2018 by the Gault et Millau are attributed to the gourmet restaurant and then the Order of Merit… so many rewards that come to confirm a resurgence.
