But before I start, I want to know if you have any recommandation
about application building for elementary OS (despite the
documentation on the developer section of ElementaryOS website's).

Do you use something special for the UI on Elementary OS ?
You might want to take a look at the draft of the new developer guide:

So that's also the proven combination for elementary apps. I don't know
about C++ with Gtk+, but it should not be to hard to learn Vala if
familiar with object oriented programming. (It's closer to Java and C#
than C++ though.)
