In 1855 Joseph Julien Cochard, resident of Grenoble, bought land along the Isère River in the foothills of the Massif de la Chartreuse to build a residence.

It was designed in the Moorish RevivalArab-Andalusian style, with elaborate facades, architectural elements, and fine detailing.

The villa was built of formed and molded concrete, and completed in 1867.
