About me

About

After studying law, Nicolas de Villiers graduated from 'Audencia' Business School, Nantes, France. During his university years, he worked at Puy du Fou as an acrobat rider. Nicolas then joined the Puy du Fou teams as a show manager and then artistic director. In addition to the artistic direction, he took the presidency of Puy du Fou in 2004. As a charismatic man, he directs the staging of Puy du Fou shows with passion, while drawing up the strategy of Puy du Fou. His key word: "Raising souls through the beautiful".

About the company:
Puy du Fou was created in 1978 as a totally one-of-a-kind artistic concept. Puy du Fou, twice elected "Best Theme Park in the World" in March 2012 in Los Angeles (Thea Classic Award) then in November 2014 in Orlando (Applause Award), draws from collective imagination and stages legendary worlds in spectacular shows filled with universal emotion. Puy du Fou has invented a unique artistic model in the world of leisure, a new type of experience, where visitors discover spectacular world-class shows, are immersed in ultra-realistic realms infused with History and legend. Puy du Fou is a Group mainly comprised of an association created under the French 1901 Act and an SAS (simplified joint-stock company) at the head of several subsidiaries. In France, the association organizes the Cinéscénie show with 4,300 volunteers and owns the SAS, which manages the Grand Parc (63 daytime/night-time shows, 4 historic villages, 22 restaurants and 6 themed hotels) and employs 2,500 people. The two entities secure their future by financing the Puy du Fou Academy (an "Arts & Studies" primary school) and the Junior Academy (an artistic training centre) which trains over 700 young people every year in performing arts and techniques. With Puy du Fou International, the park disseminates its expertise and know-how around the world, today in Spain and tomorrow on other continents. Since its creation, Puy du Fou has enjoyed constant development thanks to its artistic audacity and ongoing investment.
