Pralong castle was a stronghold in the fifteenth century, which belonged to the family of the Counts of Satillieu. In 1800 it was acquired by the family Bel, farmer neighbors, who made renovations. Miss. Bel married Mr. Bayzelon, wealthy industrialist of Lyon, and ancestor of the current owner. He has continued the work of his ancestors by completely renovating Pralong into a friendly and comfortable home. To accommodate weddings and celebrations he converted two of the outbuildings to create two large reception rooms.
