As an addict of "château porn" as we call it in my house, I feel as if I already know Karen Horne who has been on the Escape to the Château DIY series (which is now known as simply Château DIY.)

Karen and her husband Paul had for many years spent weekends escaping to France and always loved exploring the little villages when they drove across from the UK. One day Paul brought home a little advertisement of a château for sale, they went across to check it out and it was love at first sight!

So the 17 year adventure began. They took a leap of faith, possibly with rose tinted glasses on but Karen says they have no regrets! Karen says that life is not about getting to the end of a rainbow with a pot of gold, but rather life is about living it, experiencing it and having the most amazing experiences you can recall for life! Wise words I reckon!

Now Karen has a website and Insta page Dream French Properties. I love to explore the villages on Google Earth and visit the regions virtually of the grand houses in her posts. I also try to guess the region of France just from the architecture before I find out where the property actually is! 

Karen wishes that they had got to live there in their château as permanent residents, but one of the most rewarding things from the experience was the ability to dream and make their dreams happen. After listening to Karen, I'm reminded of the saying, if you can dream it you can do it! Life is short! Take that leap!

Join us for a wonderful warm papotage and escape to France with us momentarily xx
