Our Chateau in our Village

Parts of this Chateau date back to the 12th Century...and is open to the public, has beautiful Gardens, and now takes overseas Visitors, the suites being really sumptious, and very much in keeping with the traditional style...

It is Terra...lots of renovations have taken place over the last few years...it is owned by an American couple now, and run by a British couple...it's self sufficient now, but very expensive to stay there...these old buildings cost an arm and two legs to maintain...

Yes, upkeep is expensive.
This property has a tranquil look.
Good to know it is being well-maintained.

A not so funny story, a few years ago when the owners bought the Chateau, they were having a rummage around, and found an old Banner, carried on a Staff by one of the old Kings...and because it was dirty, she put it in the Washing Machine, and ruined, an important piece of History...duh...

What a daft thing to do...
... didn't she read the washing instructions on the old Banner ?
"Hand wash only" ;o) Lol.
