Craftsman since 1890

A “Sense” of Family

Four Bayrou generations, all Compagnon carpenters and joiners succeeded each other in the company since 1890. Gradually, they built the unique stamp of “Chalets Bayrou”.

The same spirit animates the men of talent and know-how of today.
Their expertise on larch wood and their love of noble materials have become a reference in Briançon in Switzerland, including Mégève.
