Without notable external modifications since 1770, it is mainly at the instigation of Pierre Marie Christophe (on 1735 - 1826), ancestor of the owner of today, that the set(group) took its current speed(look) with especially the creation of gardens in terraces opening on the panorama of the Alps. It is during this period thought of lights " and the abundant archives of the house certify it, that Brogieux was involved in all ideas and discoveries which crossed this time(period).
