The Petit Château (beautifully coined by the 3 sisters who own it) of Mas de Pradié has been featured on Escape to the Château DIY.  It is located in the beautiful Aveyron region of the Midi Pyrenees which boasts 10 of France’s “Plus Beaux Villages” (Most Beautiful Villages).


Renovations are underway and at Easter 2020 Mas de Pradié will become an event venue with a photo festival weekend already booked.  Beautiful accommodations comprise three B&B rooms in the Château plus the Old Stable 2 bedroom gite which is currently being converted (ready for holiday accommodation from Easter 2020), plus the Guardian’s Cottage a 1 bedroom gite.  Or if you so desire, the whole Château can be rented.

For those of you who enjoy watching Escape the Château DIY, the sisters have shared some photos of the renovation process http://www.thechateausisters.com/photo-album-2/ – what amazing transformations.

In 2020, the Château will be offering a 4, 8 or 12 week artist-in-residence program.  Details can be found here http://www.thechateausisters.com/artist-in-residence-program/.  In addition they are currently putting together an itinerary of events and workshops including a fabulous Midsummer Night’s Dreamy Dinner scheduled for June 20th (3 course dinner by an acclaimed chef and music) details http://www.thechateausisters.com/events.html.

Finally here are some lovely words from one of the hostesses, Julia:
A step to the side has led me down this path to Mas de Pradié and my new life in France.
A decision made that life from here on will only be filled with beauty, nature and truth.
A wish to hear birds sing, watch flowers bloom and smell delicacies baking.
A desire for a slower life, but a fuller life.
A haven where all my life skills as an artist, ceramicist, interior designer and author, can come together here in this place.  This will be my ultimate organic masterpiece, buildings and barns in stone and wood, with walled gardens, a grotto and woodland.  This magical place has secrets to reveal!
I hope you will come along on this journey with me and my Château Sisters, Sarah, Melissa and Jenny.
