On February 1, 2021 - Timber!! Our team has been busy this week! We've been working hard downing some trees. We know, we know. We hate to do it but these trees were purposely planted but grew too tall and were a danger to the gîte roof! With the trees no longer obscuring the windows, natural light can flood into the gîte and the space is clearer for visitors to drive around. We are considering replanting trees elsewhere but for now we're happy that the gîte is safe from dangerous trees and bathed in natural light. We also put the logs to use for a retaining wall elsewhere on the property. In the future, we are hoping the drive will extend back here, providing access to the woodshed one day.
On February 5, 2021 - Why is Chateau Joli Bois so special to me? Because I found my life again when I got there. In 2021 the thought of slowing down and living life differently can start to feel cliche but for us it's genuine. Chateau Joli Bois isn't just another fixer-upper French estate. It's primarily a home. A place to come and lose yourself and be peaceful.
Those are the vibes we are trying to capture and the atmosphere we are working hard to create. Thank you for joining us on our journey.
Til next week!
