Guard at French Chateaux Palace

Palais De Fortune development outside Beijing. This development is unique. Where else do 172 small French-style mock chateaux stand on a plot a mere 81 acres in size? The Palais de Fortune will remain unique, for China is to enforce a ban on such villa developments. Prices of the beige concrete villas modelled on 19th-century French chateaux at Palais de Fortune average £1.4 million for a 1,500sq m (16,150sq ft) shell. The buyer pays for all interior walls, bathroom, kitchen and decoration. The developers have helped out with the design -- setting aside space for a pool in the basement, a three-car garage and bathrooms. Villas range from 20 million RMB to 30 million RMB.
