A beautiful project, which will revive the splendors of French royalty, at the Art, at the Architecture!

Congratulations Mr Laurent Bouvet!

To learn more about the project, a few words and links are available:

The Project Rebuild St. Cloud is an economic project, self-funded (to see on Facebook) is part of a sustainable development approach.

Generating tourism flows - and hence economic flows - the heritage, by excellence is creator of direct jobs and more indirect , thus contributing greatly to the enrichment of a country.

This is why - especially in view of Greater Paris - the reconstruction of the castle of Saint-Cloud is all the more obvious as that located on the axis of the planet most tourist .... Thereafter;
