How to know among all these recent constructions which ones history will remember?
The recognition of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines therefore marks an additional step for the development of recent towns, after Le Havre and Lorient... cities of the reconstruction of the 1950s. A strong signal for contemporary creation! Recognition also for the history of new towns, fields of exceptional urban experiences, which has led specialists to say that the town is no longer approached in the same way before and after new towns.
Where are the old buildings? The chapel of the Commanderie de la Villedieu in Elancourt. The construction of the new town with the urban changes it has brought about has in fact erased part of the past. Today the city is built and it is the expected moment of rapprochement between its distant and near past. Large farms on the plateau, Commandery of the Templars, site of Port-Royal des Champs but also railway worker habitat, industrial archeology of the marshalling yard, the label comes to reconnect a deeper chronology of the territory by putting this heritage back on the front of the stage . The big names in architecture have often cut their teeth in the new town. The latter have also invented corporate architecture, townhouses... Some buildings have already made history, such as the Arcades du Lac by Ricardo Bofill. By crossing criteria related to the history of the city and the history of architecture, the future monuments of the territory are already identifiable.

The movement of the young sculpture has tested here life-size plastic materials in the most iconoclastic forms!
Are thirty years enough to claim a story? The new towns were for the Gaullist state a showcase of France's modernity, a development laboratory, a social incubator for all the experiences inherited from May 68... Pioneers chose to settle there when new rhymed with new life and utopia...

Christian Prudhomme says: The contenders for the race’s last bouquet will have to be in Olympic form on a course that’s been designed in a nod to the 2024 Paris Games, during which the events for all cycling disciplines will be held mostly in the Yvelines. The sprinters will be looking to test themselves in the vertiginous arena that is the Champs-Élysées.
The stage: Time for a parade, followed by a serious sprint.

We are able to create a unique link with the elements that make up our terroir.
The horse allows us to connect directly to the chalk, to the mineral substrate of our vineyard, which is essential to the quality of the grapes and the wine produced.
In many civilizations, the horse is a sacred animal, non-predatory and contributing to social and spiritual balance.
In addition, by using horses to work the soil, we are able to promote the growth of the endemic flora that is present in the vines and contribute to the biodiversity of our vineyard.
This maintains a natural ecological balance that is favorable to the growth of the vine and the production of quality grapes.
Finally, by using the horse to work the soil, we are able to create a link with the fauna and the inhabitants of our region.
This allows us to connect directly to our environment and to work responsibly and respectfully for people and nature.
In short, by using the horse to work the soil, we seek to maintain an ecological balance and to promote the quality of our wine by working in a respectful and sustainable manner.
The food: Button mushrooms
