La Celle-Saint-Cloud extends on the East and West slopes of the vale of the Drionne, joining the shelf of Versailles in its South. It is ideally centered, ten miles South-East of Saint-Germain-en-Laye and five miles North of Versailles. It is adjacent to Rueil-Malmaison at its North-East, of Vaucresson at the South-East, Le Chesnay in the South, Roquencourt at the South West, Louveciennes West and Bougival at its North-West. It is also part of Versailles-Grand Parc territory.
Thus it benefits from the very large green spaces of the West of Paris, having in its own commune more than thirty-five hectares of parks. Her twenty-two thousand inhabitants live there in total peace, namely in the pavilion and residential districts of La Châtaigneraie and Les Gressets. It preserves some large wooden spaces, especially in the South and the West, of which a small part of the forest of Fausses-Reposes. And all this only ten miles away from the capital-city.
The city is dynamic of its many shops nearby and not less than four commercial centers, schools, high schools (collèges) and grammar schools.
This central position, not far from all the great cities and on the edge of two départements makes it the hub of an extremely dense network of public transports : the motorway leading to Normandy with two junctions, three main axes leading to the capital, Versailles and Saint-Germain-en-Laye, two train stations for a direct connection to Paris Saint-Lazare and a dozen bus lines.
Unsurprisingly, the most sought-after properties are the family houses with a garden or an outdoor space, with three or four bedrooms, with a value ranging from one to three millions. The flat market is smaller, as only the ‘zero defect’-type of property will find favour in the young purchasers’ sight.
