The name Saint-Cloud comes from Clodoald, Merovingian prince made monk in the 6th century. The castle of this city, located on a hill, played an important role in the history of France, especially when Napoleon Bonaparte carried out his coup d'état there on 18 brumaire year VIII (November 9, 1799). The castle was burnt down during the siege of Paris by the Prussians in 1870. He was later razed to the ground, but his park remained famous. Today, Saint-Cloud is a residential commune, which benefits from the immediate proximity of the park bearing the town's name, but also from the Bois de Boulogne, a little further away, and has a population of nearly 30,000. She can be reached in a few minutes from Paris. Chic, it is dotted with beautiful residences, many of which have breathtaking views of the capital.
