It’s the 100th episode of The Chateau Diaries!!! In this Special Issue, I look back at some of my favourite moments, and share a very exciting financial secret with you!

Looking back, I can’t believe how quickly this tiny vlog has grown. In the first ever episode of The Chateau Diaries, I said I’d try to film chateau life, though I had no idea what would happen. And if I’m honest, I worried that there wouldn’t be enough for me to film! But – WOW – it’s been a rollercoaster. Every week I’ve had too much footage to cram into the vlog, and I’ve started the ‘Sundays at the Chateau’ videos to share more chateau life with you. Thank you to all of you for watching these videos – you’re helping to bring the beautiful Chateau de Lalande back to life 💛🏰💛

To experience chateau life, come and stay with us at the Chateau de Lalande! We offer accommodation in beautiful bedrooms in the original 16th century wing of the chateau. You can even stay in the bedroom of the Marquise! And in the evenings you can choose to dine privately, or to join us in our chateau family meals. For rates and availability, see our website:

    Congratulations. It has been a pleasure to be on your journey. We have an old barn we are converting to turn into self contained accommodation for people. The other day we were doing the concrete and nothing was straight. I said to my husband – this is just like Stephanie has said for her Chateau, nothing is straight, throw away the spirit level and do it by eye. You have become a much treasured part of my life now and I enjoy finding out what you are all doing. It is a few years away but when we make it to France you can bet we will be staying a few nights to experience the beauty of your home. All the best to each and everyone of you – Bless.
