I’m delighted to give you a tour of the jewel of the Chateau de Lalande, our Chapel of Saint Joseph! Consecrated by the Archbishop of Bourges in 1866, it’s a tiny masterpiece in the neo-gothic style, filled with intricate details, and surprising secrets… I’m delighted to welcome you into my home, and to take you on a personal tour. There’s so much to see that I’ve had to split the tour into several parts. This week I’ll show you our Chapel of Saint Joseph. It’s about to receive a major restoration – so this is a good opportunity to show you its ‘before’ state!
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – a series of the full tour of the Chateau de Lalande! I’m sorry that it’s taken me so long to do this, but I never felt that the chateau was fully ready! But I’ve realised that I’ll always feel that way, and part of the beauty of a historic home like this is that it’s always a work in progress. Restoring Lalande is the creative passion of my life ❤️🏰❤️
