Want To Live In A Once Abandoned French Chateau Here is What You are In For
May 6th, 2015
The mere thought of living in a large, beautiful chateau is enough to make most people starry-eyed and filled with visions of fairy-tale-like grandeur. However, if you ask Karina and Craig, the proud new owners of the Chateau de Gudanes, they’ll tell you that it isn’t all whimsical glamour; it’s a lot more work than you think.
Irrespective of the undeniable beauty of the place, a home with 94 rooms isn’t exactly easy to take care. Then throw in the fact that since the place has been abandoned for so long, the whole chateau will need renovating. In the process of all of this, the couple also discovered a meter-deep hole in the floorboards! How’s that for a fairy tale?
