Our journey

Chateau La Perriere

The journey of refurbishing the Chateau has been an exciting adventure and we will continue to talk about it for many years to come.  There are lots of stories we have encountered along the way, one being, the Channel 4 programme Chateau DIY (formally, Escape to the Chateau DIY),  We are also avid watchers of Escape to the Chateau, many of Dick and Angel's experiences closely resemble our own journey.  Chateau La Perriere is a life story, an absolute love of the heart and will remain with us forevermore.  


Now we have moved onto our next chapter, teaming up with Anna at Chateau Lagorce (also from the series),  where we are sharing beautiful properties for sale across France and using our experiences and knowledge to help others along the way. 

Even if you're not looking to make the leap to France, it's a lovely place to dream, it certainly gives me the French fix I miss!
