ever wondered what a 12th-century castle would look like with modern renovations? well, look no further! vt wonen recently featured the fascinating story of this french chateau located in Dirac, France and the family who lives there, which includes Isabelle and Hubert Site, owners of les petites emplettes, and their three daughters.

according to Isabelle, the family first visited the castle back in 2013, and it was love at first sight. after a two-year long renovation, the family brought the crumbling castle back to life, but left behind hints of the castle’s rustic past, such as the bits of wallpaper and peeling paint in order to give the home a bohemian, eclectic vibe. this home also happens to feature a few bold bold pops of pantone‘s 2017 color of the year: greenery. for more photos of this truly whimsical space, check out vt wonen no. 12.

  1. There aren’t any details in the magazine or on the chateau web site about the renovation or the history of the place. It would have been interesting to see what they changed, etc.

  2. This is a cool restoration project, love the French styled castles. We’re in the middle of transforming a 16th century Scottish Castle. Love seeing the natural patina celebrated on these walls.
