This photo is from the arcitect firm Rho architects showing the chateau before renovation being "asleep for the last two decades". Drawings from the arcitect can bee seen at his site. He decribe the projec this way: "Plans include adaptive re-use of the original chateau into multiple “gites” on the upper two levels, common sitting and dining rooms on the ground floor, and a winery barrel room in the cave below. Careful consideration has been given to restoring the Provencal feel of spaciousness and simplicity."
