Our story begins in 1963. The first generation of the Stragliati family came to Morzine to buy a guest house and turn it into a hotel: L'Ours Blanc was born.
Their son François Stragliati took over the hotel's management with his wife Laurence in 1987, having worked as the chef at Le Samoyède Hotel for a few years.
Arnaud, son of François Stragliati, was in charge of the hotel from 2011 to 2020 with his wife Amandine: the third generation of the family to do so.
In April 2020, we (Arnaud and Amandine) decided to turn the hotel into an aparthotel offering free services called Le Julianna (after our daughters' names, Juliette and Anna). The apartments will be ready in December 2020. They will keep the family adventure alive as we'll be in frequent contact with guests, providing services like transfers to the slopes and fresh bread and croissant delivery ourselves.
So, this isn't the end of the story by any means. It's the start of a whole new chapter...
