Channel 4 show Escape to the Chateau originally followed couple Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree as they bought an impressive property in northwest France. They purchased the Château de la Motte-Husson in Martigné-sur-Mayenne and began the long process of renovating it while trying to juggle work and their family life. But can you stay at the once dilapidated 19th century chateau.
Can you stay at Escape to the Chateau castle?
The series first aired in 201 and has become a huge hit with audiences who followed Angel and Dick as they worked to make the chateau habitable.
When they first started on the gorgeous 45-room property, they were required to install electricity, heating and running water.
For the past 40 years, the chateau hadn’t been lived in and was in desperate need of a revamp.
The pair had set a deadline: their wedding which would be held at the chateau with 200 guests in attendance.

Usually, people can stay at the chateau but it is usually used for events and weddings with things such as geo domes with prices starting from £350 while working garden days to visit the couple and their home begin at £75.
As the chateau is also home to the family, it is closed to the public generally and you can only go for events.
The pair wrote on the Chateau’s website: “We feel very blessed that The Chateau is now teeming with life and activity, not only courtesy of our children Arthur and Dorothy, who simply love exploring their very own ‘castle’, but with guests who have been on the journey with us: those who have been inspired to ‘have a go’, and those who have simply enjoyed the fantasy from the safety of their armchairs!
“We really have been overwhelmed by lovely e-mails and enquiries about visits and stays at The Chateau.
