Escape to the Chateau and ETTC DIY has given hopeful chateaux buyers the courage to take “le plonge” so we thought it a good time to focus on these “unsung” chateaux owners and renovators.

In our efforts to keep readers coming back with the new fodder we’ve created a new page just for such unsung heroes.  To whet your appetite (and to keep you coming back) here’s an intro:

Four weeks and counting, follow the adventures of the Johnson’s (with 3 children under 3) who are relocating to start their new adventure in less than 4 weeks. https://www.facebook.com/TheJohnsonsattheChâteau

I’m sure for those who were lucky enough to have attended the recent Dick and Angel tour you will have been bitten by the chateau renovation bug!  For most of us it’s an unfulfilled dream but we all love to see those who Dare to Do It!  That’s why we’re all glued to the TV to watch Escape to the Chateau DIY – even the reruns inspire us don’t they?!

So stay tuned as we add more Dare to Do It’ers to our page on ChateauxEscapesFrance.com and follow along with these adventurous DIYers.
