The Sibuet Label
By creating Maisons et Hôtels Sibuet, the Sibuet family has created a style as well as a new art of hospitality. The aim is to ensure that in each hotel, in each room, in each bedroom, the visitor feels as if he or she is in a home. His home. Because the place is the one they dreamed of. Because the decoration is the one they have chosen. Because the furniture is the one he would have liked to find. It is on this condition and this condition only, that we can create an atmosphere, and find it in different places... with the same pleasure.
L’Art de vivre
In the heart of a Provençal vineyard, on the snowy slopes or facing the sea, each house has its own unique atmosphere, specific to its environment:
immaculate garden or endless terraces of olive trees, winter flavours or sunny local cuisine, fabrics in shimmering colours, furniture with a patina from the far north, cosy rooms designed for the comfort of skiers...
This is how the philosophy of Maisons et Hôtels Sibuet and its vision of the art of living are expressed, and today they are passionately inspired by the second generation, Marie and Nicolas Sibuet.
In the beginning
The Art of Mountain Living
This is the story of a family saga that began a little over 30 years ago, driven by a desire to offer different, intimate and authentic establishments, filled with a warm soul, where you feel at home.
In 1981, Jocelyne and Jean-Louis Sibuet boldly take on the adventure of a small boutique hotel in Megève and they enrich it by cultivating a new art of living in the mountains. In 1989, they lay the groundwork for a fabled odyssey at Les Fermes de Marie, today the hallmark of the art of living in the Alps , just before taking on the legendary Hotel Mont-Blanc to which they gave a new elegance and offer it some of its best years to come starting in 1994.
Two years later, the soul of the Sibuets invaded the Lodge Park, which quickly became the chic, trapper-like den of Megève. The entrepreneurial spirit of Jocelyne and Jean-Louis Sibuet then took them to Provence, to La Bastide de Marie, an enchanting hermitage in the heart of the vineyards. Back in the south, they were seduced by Villa Marie and the "Riviera" atmosphere of Saint-Tropez.
The Adventure continues
From generation to generation
From 2011, the adventure continues as a family, accompanied by their daughter Marie and son Nicolas, the Sibuets reinvent the art of mountain living in other ski resorts. Like in Val Thorens, where they created the very first "ski palace" in Europe's highest resort, or Avoriaz, Flaine and Chamonix, where they restored mythical establishments to their former glory, always respecting the history of the place, but adding their own soul.
In the meantime, in December 2016, the label moved to the mythical Caribbean island of Saint-Barth, with Villa Marie, a "French West Indies" version, and opened Gyp Sea, a chic bohemian beach restaurant where the whole of St Barth meets, four years later.
In 2019, after expanding in the Alps, Nicolas and Marie have decided to sell some of their mountain hotels to focus on their favourite destinations. Like in Megève with the opening of the Épicerie des Fermes, in the centre of Megève, where you can find the family's specialised selections and a catering service, as well as a brand new collection of chalets to rent with the Fermes de Marie hotel service.
In Ménerbes, Le Mas, an authentic building renovated with care and decorated with heart by Marie and Nicolas, was opened in the summer of 2021 and is also rented with the services of La Bastide de Marie.
An extension of La Bastide de Marie in the middle of the vineyards and a few Creole huts to rent with your feet in the sand on the beach of St Jean, in St Barths, will also be coming soon...
An invitation to the sweetness of life, where everything is delight, charm and delicacy... These words often come to mind when recounting a stopover out of time, in these exceptional houses imagined by the Sibuet family, at the top of the Alps, somewhere in Provence, or under the trade winds... The saga continues to be written with new beautiful stories to come.
From our values to decoration, we serve only that which we hold dear, Les Fermes, our abode, becomes your own as soon as you’re here.
