Eau Vive

L’Eau Vive has always been central to the life within the small village of Saint Nicolas la Chapelle. Formally named “Chez Nous”; the inn was an amalgamation of guest rooms, a bakery, groceries and more. However, after major work in 1977, it became a hotel, bar, and restaurant where people from all over the region gathered in comfort.

Since the early 2000’s, L’Eau Vive offers all-inclusive stays supervised by a team of qualified mountain guides. It’s now considered as a quintessential specialist location for hiking in the Val d’Arly.


The brief

Bring L’Eau Vive back to life by designing a captivating brand image, develop excellent online visibility and present their high-quality service offer in an alluring and modern way.

The solution

Merci developed a modern, authentic brand image using chic colours that represent nature in each of its seasons. By taking a qualitative and creative approach, Merci has been able to reflect the atmosphere of the revived location, business, and its new owners. The new brand image promotes the mountaineering experts through the online outdoor activity offer, neatly wrapped up within an ergonomic, streamlined and clear website.
