The Ideal Palace

When things don't go the way you've planned, remember this story: Back in 1879, there was a postman. On his way home from his daily round he bumps into a strange stone which reminds him of a long cherished dream: building a fairytale-like palace. "(...) since nature wants to do the sculpture, I’ll do the masonry and the architecture". And so he did!

Ferdinand Cheval started building his dream at age 43, he completed this incredible piece of art at age 76... His inspiration: the landscapes he worked in and the postcards and magazines he had to deliver...

"Palais Idéal Du Facteur Cheval", love it! Whenever you'll have the chance, go visit. Have a great weekend!
