It required total renovation to enable it to live under a new cover on the Place de la Maison des Gets all year long.
Now both adults and children can enjoy the hand carved animals, the gondolas, its fabrics painted by PM Coppier (a fairground painter from Annecy) and enjoy a ride to the tunes of its Limonaire organ. This unique piece has recently been registered as a Historic Monument.
