I wish I owned this Chateau. Partly because it seems like the place of fairytales and magic, and also because the task of restoring it back to its former glory would be so satisfying - what a project!

This is Chateau de Gudanes, a derelict and decaying mansion in the French Pyrenees. It has a long & colourful history, but has laid abandoned since the early 90's when plans to develop it into luxury apartments fell through. After being on the market for four years, it was finally purchased by an Australian couple in 2013, who have been working non-stop to bring the Chateau back to life.

Read more about the Chateau, and follow the journey of the restoration, and life in a small French town here.
