My April video has just gone live on You Tube and Vimeo and I am so excited!
Through the MFCH videos my aim is to bring you different experiences of French living, and to take you along with me when I go somewhere wonderful. I think that today you are in for a treat as I invite you to come to the Chateau de Moissac in the South of France.
Louis and Marie Christine Cavaglioni are good friends. I have so much admiration for the way in which they have restored their chateau. Not only because their eye is sure and their taste faultless, but also because they are so humble and modest about what they have achieved. Louis often says that they are just the guardians of this amazing property, the current owners in a long line through several centuries. I believe that he underestimates just what they have achieved.
When they first saw the chateau, twenty years ago, it had been abandoned for decades. It was never their intention to purchase a chateau, but once they had seen Moissac it was hard to get it out of their heads.
Never mind that it was completely overgrown, that half the roof was missing and that vandals had helped themselves to the windows and doors. What Marie Christine and Louis saw was the potential to bring it back to life, and recreate the original Provençal beauty.
Ten years later their renovation won awards and drew admirers from far afield. They now live here full time, welcoming family and friends around their table, and now and again the chateau is also buzzing with activity when it is used by stylists and photographers to style their latest product or for a fashion shoot.
