Natural stone and Antique Materials in the Heart of Provence
Alain Edouard Bidal, founder of the company, discovers the stone carving profession while in Blois, working on the renovation and restoration of some of the national architectural heritage : the famous castles of the Loire Valley (Chambord, Chenonceau, etc).
He then decides to settle down in Provence, where he finds a rich architectural region. There, he works for different quarries and local stone-businesses. In 1997, after gaining a strong experience in various ateliers in the region, Alain Edouard Bidal enrolles at the Chamber of Trades in Avignon and begins its independent stone-cutting activity. 4 years later, he establishes, in January 2001, the "EURL Alain Edouard Bidal".
