Château du Nouveau Monde


The "Château du Nouveau Monde" (New World Castle) aims at creating a "nature-place" to live today the world of tomorrow, where guests and residents will have the opportunity to live the experience of a world where human, nature and technology are designed and evolve in balance and harmony. The Chateau du Nouveau Monde will be the result of the renovation, with the most effective environmental techniques and with a high standard of quality and confort, of the 20 hectares estate and the castle we bought 100 km south of Paris and of the creation on this estate of nine different activities (a four star small hotel -including luxury autonomous suites in the forest-, a green-tech startup incubator, inclusive workshops and conferences, a restaurant, a digital marketplace, a field for market gardening and a parc using the principles of permaculture and agroforestry ...). The project will begin with the creation of a Proof of Concept (La lanterne du Nouveau Monde) and will progressively grow up. It will be coordinated by a dedicated endowment fund which will be eventually transformed into a public utility foundation to which we'll make donating of the domain.
