We are Philip & Angelina who are restoring the beautiful Napoleonic moated 'Chateau du Bailleul' in the Pays de la Loire region of France; all while bringing you the videos of progress & daily life of living in a Chateau!It's just the two of us and we do everything we can ourselves so it's a lot of hard work but we use innovative ideas & recycle where we can to make it work.Your help will enable us to share our home & this little piece of history with as many people as possible by creating wonderful videos whilst we work on the property or grounds & showing you our progress along the way. We hold annual public events that are showcasing what is fantastic about the area and we are going from strength to strength. In order to share with the wider world who can’t make it to the Chateau in person the YouTube channel called ‘Chateau Life’ was started.The channel follows our ‘Chateau Life’, the highs and lows of living in such a property, ongoing work and the unique battles with innovative solutions just two people face whilst we run such a vast property and estate on a tight budget.
- Angelina is super crafty and really is the one who puts the finishing touches on the Chateau with her decoration, re-upholstery and furniture renovation and loves to share those skills with others through our YouTube videos.
- Phil is the ‘big jobs’ person at the Chateau and always finding ingenious ways to solve the problems quickly and cheaply. He can usually be found somewhere with a large power tool or chainsaw or turning old pallets into something useful for the events!
So come on our journey by following our progress & join our 'Chateau Family'!
