Le Château d’Humeroeuille as seen on Escape to the Château DIY
Owned by the same family since 1717 was only opened to the public in 2000. Well worth a visit for the astounding 90 varieties of hydrangeas and the maze alone. The gardens are open to the public from June to September.Recently featured on Escape to the Chateau DIY Series 3.
The Chateau d’Humeroeuille though not in the same state of total renovation as some others seen on Escape to the Chateau DIY, over the years this beautiful home requires constant upkeep – some large, some small.
On the recent Channel 4 series of Escape to the Chateau DIY we all witnessed a very stressful day for the family who are raising money to repair the roof – a huge expense. They opened the gardens to brocante and antique dealers and it turned out to be a huge success with more attendees than they could possibly have hoped for. After this year’s triumph they have already scheduled an encore so mark your calendars!
The Chateau owner Eric de Montigny has created an association with a mission to preserve the chateau in all it’s splendour.
