Château la Perriere

Château la Perriere as seen on Escape to the Château DIY

Last week we saw Paul and Karen of Château la Perriere on Escape to the Chateau DIY.  They have owned the Château for the past 15 years and are still commuting from the UK with dreams of one day living full time at the Château.  

The Château itself has been recently renovated offering 6 bedrooms (4 double and 2 twin) with 3 bathroom/shower rooms and 5 toilets.  Each room has been uniquely decorated using cool neutral colours. The entire Château can be rented or for smaller groups it can be split, click here for accommodation options.

The Château is set in 10 acres of park and woodlands and enjoys amazing views of the Royal Fortress of Chinon, and with the swimming pool your children will love it.

Château la Perriere Paul and Karen have been the owners – and renovators – for the past 15 years.  While currently still commuting, their plan is to ultimately retire at their Château paradise.  This week we saw them renovating the coach house into an event venue.  The first step was the roof which sadly took a huge bite out of their budget but with Karen’s creativity she created a magical venue which wowed their friends at the grand opening party.
