I recently came across something that made my heart beat a little faster.  Have you heard of Chateau de Gudanes?  Built in the 1700’s, and listed as a Classic 1 Historic Monument, the decaying chateau stands majestically in the small village of Chateau Verdun in the South of France.  In 2013, Australian husband and wife team Karina and Craig Waters purchased the castle and are taking on a major (MAJOR!) renovation in an effort to bring this impressive gem back to its original gleam.

So dreamy, right?!  The best part is that they have started a blog to document the journey and share the process of this massive undertaking – showing us the history, architecture and hidden treasures they are uncovering along the way.

I know I will be following along.  How about you?
