I have been following this page on Instagram for a while now and decided to share it with you all for today’s post.
“Chateau Dreams? What is a Chateau?”
Simple. A large French country house or castle often giving its name to wine made in its neighborhood.
Did you notice my little introduction was in a wine colour? Lol
The Château de Gudanes is an 18th-century neoclassical château in the commune of Château-Verdun in the Ariège département of southern France. It is built on the site of an older castle destroyed in 1580. (Via Wikipedia)
Once abandoned and destroyed, it is now returning to life. Purchased in 2013 by the Waters, an Australian family from Perth, the Chateau is in ongoing restoration.
I have been stalking and watching their page for their “behind the scenes” photos for the ongoing restoration of the Chateau. This type of project takes time, patience, obviously the funds and a deep love to see it through until the end.
Personally, I enjoy the journey so far but looking forward even more to the finished interior and exterior of the Chateau.
I believe it will be absolutely STUNNING!
Here are some photos from their Instagram feed.
Links to their IG & website will be linked below.
I hope you find something within their walls or grounds that you love just as much as I do.
