The progress of the Château de la Roseraie Construction site

The G&G Pélisson Foundation

Here are some news of the construction site of our campus, which has now lasted for more than 2 years.

This is an operation aimed at providing our school with a new site. It will be offering enlarged educational spaces, equipped with the latest technologies, offering a living environment and a learning environment worthy of the most beautiful international campuses. 

Our ambition on this extension is to give our students a framework unique to flourish in our training! It allows us to compete among the most beautiful campuses dedicated to the hotel, restaurant and culinary arts in the world. We are 6 months away from the opening of the campus to students and teams. We are planning an inauguration in the last quarter of 2022.

The project in a nutshell  

2 wings will be added to the original castle (1,200m²), which is currently being renovated. They will be located on each side of it, giving life to a new campus of more than 4,000m².  

The ground floor of the Château de la Roseraie will be dedicated to welcoming the entire school and the campus. It will highlight the hospitality professions. There will be a new field of MESP around customer reception, events, the bar…  

The wings will be dedicated to pedagogy and intended for theoretical courses for students of all sectors. 18 classrooms, one amphitheater with 250 seats, student collaborative spaces will be created. 


A booming construction site 


Did you know?  

The “Château de la Roseraie” is also known as the “Château Payen”. It was built under the Second Empire by the Lyonnais architect Frédéric Benoit for the Payen family. They were silk merchants. Cyrille Cottin, the owner of the Château du Vivier (current Campus of the Institut Paul Bocuse) is also the son-in-law of Louis Payen. 

The family will be together again!  

This building has already undergone several reconversions, from the occasional installation of the School for Female Executives between 1940 and 1942 (Vichy regime) to the opening of the Henry Gormand Center in 1960. With this renovation, the Château de la Roseraie will regain its letters of nobility and come back to life.
