According to the folks at Chateau de Saugé they are in for a very busy day next week!  Not only is the Tour de France passing locally BUT [on the same day] they are also going to be filming a new series of Escape to the Chateau DIY to be released in 2021!  This is indeed “cause célèbre”! 

This is what Donna and Paul had to say: “Tour de France cyclists will be passing close to the Chateau and we will also be filming with Channel 4 – Escape to the Chateau DIY on that day for Series 6 due out early 2021”. 

Donna and Paul are planning a special “Tour de France” tea for the occasion on September 9th.  “We are celebrating the Tour de France as it passes the Château (Tour organisers are suggesting the cyclists should pass Saugé on the Parthenay road between 2.25 pm – 4 pm).  We will be serving a Scone, Clotted Cream, Jam and fresh strawberries with a glass of Sparkling Wine – in our Vintage Tearoom and Terrace overlooking the Château grounds only €9.  Full drinks menu and Afternoon Teas also available” 

BIG NEWS!!!  Filming of Channel 4s Escape to thé Château DIY continues and camera crew will be in attendance on the day.

They recommend that you reserve to avoid disappointment contact details.  More from Donna and Paul here as well as their special events.   Due to covid everyone attending must have a reservation.

Thank you both for sharing the news of the latest series of Escape to the Chateau DIY which we will be following with great anticipation.
