If you ever caught yourself daydreaming about living in a time that no longer exists, then a stay at the Domaine des Tourelles is the ultimate manifestation of that ideal. This carefully renovated historicism-style villa is full of handcrafted and artistic details. Think of intricate ceiling frescoes framed by decorative stucco, delicate sculptures in the garden and wooden floors in star-shaped patterns reinterpreting the baroque style. The villa is like a time machine, offering a glimpse into an era when La Chaux-de-Fonds was the wealthy center of the world’s watchmaking industry.

Prepare your breakfast in a kitchen with colorful stained glass windows that become even more boldly illuminated with the sunlight.

Additions like modern bathrooms and furnishings add an interesting contrast to historic details and create a balance between past and present, ushering the historic home into a new, and more comfortable, relevance.
