“Wherever you are, be there totally” Eckhart Tolle
THE HEADY OSMOSIS BETWEEN A TIME AND A PLACE THAT BEWITCHINGLY BECKONS, OVER AND AGAIN.
NOT SO FAR, JUST ELSEWHERE...
A luxury chalet in Combloux, a waterfront property on Lake Geneva, catamaran in the Mediterranean...
OTCOTONE’s addresses have been designed to slow down the pace, the cadence, to provide you with the opportunity to put the brakes on gently, to have some down time, a time of discovery...
... extraordinary ones
From the large, inviting living spaces through to the rooms that guarantee privacy, space is freely available at an OTOCTONE address. Each interior is designed to create a tranquil atmosphere conducive to introspection
Constructions that are firmly implanted in the earth and raw materials that reflect the terroir. In the pursuit of veracity and authenticity, through a myriad of details each address recounts its past and its roots, without forgoing the very latest in modern comforts.
THE STORY OF AN ENCOUNTER
It all began with an encounter, ours.
''The story of a shared quest in search of balance and wellness. Of a mutual passion for architecture, for what ties us to our surroundings, what reconnects us with nature, with others and with ourselves. As true nomads, we were given the opportunity to discover extraordinary, timeless places. And all of these fulfilling experiences amazed, enchanted and bewitched us. On leaving them, each time we felt deeply revitalised. We could almost say that they adopted us just as much as we chose them.
Now we welcome you.
We are overjoyed to have you stay here.''

DISCOVER ALL OF OUR DESTINATIONS
Each address in the OTOCTONE collection tells a tale that is intimately tied to its surroundings. Each place has been designed in close keeping with the beauty of its heritage. You will discover places with a strong identity - an inviting luxury, contemporary chalet in Combloux, an architect-designed house on the water's edge in Thonon-les-Bains and a luxury catamaran with skipper and crew for charters in the Mediterranean.
Because we believe in the virtue of being truthful and in the beauty of each individual identity, of both places and people.
so that every place and every person can be fully themselves, open, free and express their personality.
By interacting with each client to create a personalised relationship that is very different from characterless hotel chains.
By giving a voice to the unspoilt, natural surroundings of each place.
By preserving each place’s specific, local identity, its individuality and what forges its character.
Because we love life and the beauty of all things. We enjoy life's pleasures and are sensitive souls.
So that in each place, everyone can experience fulfilment and in so doing discover their ideal balance and serenity.
By letting each place express itself, restoring its strength and beauty, renovating each one individually in a bespoke manner, seeking to preserve the materials, roots and character of each particular space.
By using places and experiences as a source of self-discovery and serenity.
By offering the exquisiteness of life’s simple pleasures in places that encourage an outward-facing focus, to experience the spectacle of a sunrise, the touch of a gentle breeze, the taste of a cup of tea or the caress of a light fabric throw…
out of a longing to take care of ourselves and others.
out of a desire to treat each place with care, and to respect its past.
so that everyone feels welcome, invited, awaited, and at home.
by letting the spaces, materials and natural elements live and breathe freely.
by providing bespoke services.
by creating spaces that are always welcoming, that feel familiar.
by staying out-of-sight and yet always on-hand at all the right times.
out of a need to respect the world around us.
to give back more than we receive from it each day.
by limiting our impact on the surrounding nature.
by using natural materials.
by offering the latest services, technologies and devices, which today are able to reduce energy consumption while still providing us with an ever higher level of comfort.
by sourcing local, organic suppliers, who stand for the same values as we do.
