In 1852, the Bois de Boulogne was given up by Napoleon III to the city of Paris and the big works of its refitting begins the year after, supervised by Baron Haussmann. Within the heart of this ambitious project, the Lac Inférieur is created including two islands connected by a bridge. Since then, the site can only be reached by boat. The Emperor's kiosk is the first building created in 1857 by the architect Gabriel Davioud at the forefront of the island.
The Chalet was built by wish of Empress Eugénie, who saw a real Chalet near Bern, in Switzerland. The building was transported by train and rebuilt in Paris, on the big island by the lake.
The Chalet became very fashionable place to visit by "le tout Paris" during the Belle Epoque era, visited by illustrious customers such a Proust and Zola.
Over the years,the building has been restored and reorganized several times to preserve its exceptional attraction.
Transport will be arranged departing from Palais Brongniart. The Gala Dinner starts around 20:00.
Event schedule and evening programme will be provided soon. Shuttles returning to Paris will be foreseen.
