House obsessed?

Big or small? Is that the only question you ask?

I admit it: I am a bit obsessed with houses and medieval ones in France top that list. (What is better than before and after pix?) I read about this chateau in the Pyrenees being brought back to life by an Australian couple. What a project! Not a medieval stone cottage but a huge, dilapidated 1700s mansion. You can follow the progress on Instagram (Chateau de Gudanes) or on their blog.

Then I read about another renovation that was more my style. Americans, from Utah no less, fell in love with the village of Beynac in the Dordogne. Who wouldn’t? And ended up buying a 16th century stone house within the original ramparts of the chateau and made it into their family vacation home. The entire story is here.

What’s your house obsession?
