The story starts in the 19th century, with the great-great-grandfather of the current owners (Marius), who owned a café and grocers at the heart of the village of Evosges. He remained in charge until 1906, when he handed the business over to his son, Jean-Marie Jacquemet, whose house was fire-bombed in 1944. He was shot as the house burnt down. The square where the hotel is located now bears his name.
His wife, Emélie, and later his son Albert and daughter-in-law Angèle rebuilt the farm and the business (Jacquemet Café-Restaurant-Guest House-Grocers) which they ran until 1975. Jeanne-Marie and Françoise Jacquemet (the daughters of Albert and Angèle) then extended the restaurant, building the current dining room.
That year, they were joined by Henri, and the restaurant took on the name of L’Auberge Campagnarde. Up until the year 2000, the two couples (Françoise & Pierre, Jeanne-Marie & Henri) worked together. Estelle and Aurélien joined their parents who, little by little, passed over the reins of the business to them.
To this day, L'Auberge Campagnarde is still a family-run hotel with Estelle in the kitchen and Aurélien in charge of service. They are joined by Jeanne-Marie in the kitchen, Henri (service).
The women in the kitchen and the men make up the waiting staff!
