At last, the long awaited story of Château de Gudanes...
As featured in Vogue, Tatler, GQ, House and Garden and Kinfolk!
Prepare to be spellbound by her story! An 800 year old castle left forgotten and abandoned, its stories almost erased and its aristocrats long fallen… Until, a new family arrives on the scene, willing to cross hemispheres to save her, and begins to awaken this sleeping beauty.
This is a story filled with love. Passionately written, photographed and designed by the owner, Karina, as she undertakes the restoration. The love for the Château felt in every word written and every detail on each page.
But, this story isn’t just a fairy-tale. For the very first time this is a true story of restoring and living in a château. It is about finding the courage to pursue your dreams, staying strong amongst countless uncertainties and learning to be fearless in the face of never-ending challenges.
And so, if you have ever dreamed or wondered what it would be like to purchase a home in France, live in and restore an ancient castle, wished to discover the secrets of this magnificent building’s history, wanted to see all the before and afters of her restoration, or simply are the believer in everlasting love stories then this is a gift to give yourself or to someone you treasure. A gift for every season...
