Family history

"Time passes and people change, but the passion remains the same."

In 1925, Ernest and Mathilde Schaeffer took over the RAVON hotel in Serrières (which was already listed in guidebooks as early as 1900!).

Yvette and Henri Schaeffer took up the mantle in 1955.

Their granddaughter Joëlle Schaeffer and her husband Bernard Mathé took over the helm in 1981. For over 80 years, three successive generations have kept the hotel high on the list of the region's best restaurants.

The fourth generation has now taken over the reins of the kitchen.
