“Escape to the Chateau”

If any one knows me they know I absolutely love DIY projects 🛠 and watching shows like this. I think because of the Covid slow down of new shows over here some of our channels are showing older UK shows. WHICH are new to us over here because we haven’t seen them. THIS show is amazing. I can’t make out exactly how much they bought this 45 room chateau for….its either $390,000 or $280,000. Who knew property and Chateaus were so cheap over there. I would buy one in a heart beat if I had a “Dick” like Angel does ☺️. Angel and Dick are the couple in this show. He is a Jack of all trades and Master of them all. They are talented and wonderful and I absolutely adore them.

  1. I love, love, love shows like this.
    So interesting! I would buy up a Chateau like this in a heartbeat if I could. Reminds me of some of the pictures my dad’s godmother in Switzerland used to send.

    I also love watching Fixer Upper, Joanna and Chip. Tiny Houses. They truly amaze me!

    1. YES…..I have to monitor how many shows I get into because they are addicting. AND…there are so many shows like this out there.
      I think from what I saw…they have lived there a few years and still have not got to half the rooms. Renovating them that is.

      1. They really are very addicting.
        It’s been quite easy for me to get hooked on them last year. The company I work for has had all 150 of us working remotely, so I turn the TV on for noise, and of course, end up watching while doing tasks.

        I can’t even imagine renovating that many rooms. That is a LOT!!!

        1. You got to work from home? Thank goodness for that. Being able to keep working through this pandemic. I would be horrible at it. I see those commercials where people are in pajama bottoms and nice tops doing conference calls. I know myself…..I would probably start watching soap operas all day and actually getting some work done at midnight ☺️
          YES….45 rooms in this Chateau. I definitely would have to marry a Journeyman to do all this work. You should start watching the show…..this man could do everything. He is ex military and a chef. He also is a trained gardener I think…he just knows it all. And she is so cute. She is so talented with design and unique ideas. And to do all of this with small children….AMAZING.

  2. This is quite a lengthy documentary series which first began airing in June 2016.
    It has 7 seasons, and 32 episodes in all.
    So there’s much to see if you want to watch the entire series.

    There are several DIY shows which come and go in the UK and one of the stand-out programs is called “Grand Designs” – a program which follows the construction of a house from foundations to the roof. It may sound ordinary but it really isn’t.

  3. Are you serious?
    I can’t wait for them to release more Chateau seasons.
    We also have MANY shows like this. But I was drawn to the Chateau because of the amazing castle like home….and the beautiful couple doing it all.

  4. Someone remodeled the big house (Chateau) which is not my thing at all. I prefer getting an apartment as is, and not having to worry about it. Oh maybe pick out a picture or two. LOL This somehow brings to mind an interview I saw part of earlier today of Fran Lebowitz who emphasised that she is lazy. She got one bad job after another when she first moved to New York at 18, and finally just realized she didnt’ wanna work, period.

    That’s sort of me.

    1. I kind of get this. I think we feel LAZY when its something we really are not passionate about. I never had to do a remodel….and I probably won’t ever. But I love the idea of it…I love how creative some people can get over it. My fun is designing a room. But….it is also draining too.
      I sometimes just want to hire a decorator to come and decorate every room in my house because I can never make my mind up. I can spend months debating over a chair…..and once I decide on the model….add a few more months on picking a color. And add a few more months after that for picking the fabric/texture. ITS HORRIBLE. But…. once I get going I am ok.

      Yeah…..pictures are an issue with me too. Because I only want to hang my own art work. But I don’t because I want to paint in a color scheme I decide on for the room. And ….and….and…..it doesn’t end you see. 😔
      😉

        1. I would love to meet with one of those designers who interviews you and you get to select a few colors and they create a space from that. So simple ☺️
