Discover the history of the Ferme à Isidore de Combloux. An old farmhouse which has become a historical monument and a jewel of the cultural heritage of Haute-Savoie.
A historical monument in the heart of the village center of Combloux
La Ferme à Isidore is a jewel of rural mountain architecture, built in 1832. It bears the name of its last inhabitant. It is one of the rare regional farms to have preserved its original state. It was until the end of the XNUMXth century, a place of residence and a farm.
Its construction and design are characteristic of a restricted environment and testify to the adaptation to the rigorous conditions of the mountain environment.
It was acquired by the municipality of Combloux in 2002, then classified as a historic monument in 2004.
In 2007, the village of Combloux implemented restoration work on the farm and entered into an agreement with the Heritage Foundation, which aims to encourage popular sponsorship and corporate sponsorship in favor of the preservation of local heritage.
