“Among the first contracts signed in advance booking and entrepreneurs interested in the project, we have multiple profiles: a website builder, a communications agency, an e-commerce site, a training coach, and a communications manager from a large Parisian group who has resided at Le Pouliguen. So we have business leaders and workers. Remote Interlocutor Yuan explains, some actually live here, but some are planning to come and settle down soon.

Contacts are also underway with an architect and real estate agent.

The buildings can accommodate a maximum of 50 people.

“Our goal is for this to be a place to live. We want people to exchange ideas and everyone to develop together,” Baptiste Barrelli hopes.
