The Château

Then & Now

Setting off on a mission to rescue the ruins of a French fairytale château is no small feat, doing it in a foreign country with heaps of spirit history doesn’t exactly help either. But Julie Berry isn’t a newcomer to revitalising luckless ruins, having established the the Michelin-listed restaurant The Holcombe in the UK within the walls of an old, failing pub. Her newest project: a home within a sleeping castle locked behind padlocked gates in the Cognac region of the Grande Champagne, which she meticulously details on her Instagram @restore_the_chateau.
