Set upon a hilltop in the French Pyrenees, Château de Gudanes is one of the most magical homes I have ever seen. And one of my favourite Instagram accounts to follow, to watch the progress of this huge restoration project and dream…
Once upon a time a thirteenth century fortress, a fifteenth century castle, and then an eighteenth century palatial château, Château de Gudanes was then left abandoned and in ruins… Until in 2013, she was discovered by a West Australian family, the Waters, who have taken on the responsibility to awaken this sleeping beauty after years of neglect – at the time they purchased the building only three of its ninety-four rooms still had floors and ceilings. Château de Gudanes still stands proudly in the south of France in the small village of Chateau-Verdun.
A dreamy place. Wonderful and perfect for a wedding or special family event. Thank you.
This is just delicious.
I found this place on-line when they first bought it and lost track of it so thank you for letting me find it again. Wow, it’s beautiful and I love it so much.

So look forward to Sundays when I can chateau dream right along with you Kim.
The Waters are to be commended for their time, efforts, and resources in saving this historical beauty
