From the book The Treasure of the Mcely Family, 2016
It all began in 2001 when a successful – and exhausted – young woman found herself drawn like a magnet to a crumbling building. Inéz Cusumano felt its special mysterious power, and with courage and determination, she embarked on the challenging renovation. Her husband Jim and the wonderful people she surrounded herself with, such as Vlastimil and Eva Plch, gave her the drive for the project. Everyone was driven by the desire to create something that would make the world around us just a little bit better. The creative impulse took off at full speed, and the derelict chateau was soon wreathed in beauty.
