Escape to the Chateau: DIY

Escape to the Chateau: DIY

Series 4 - Episode 1



Dick Strawbridge and his wife Angel make renovating and running a French chateau look like un morceau de gâteau. So this series, dropping in on other Brits doing the same, is definitely a reality check. Some we’ve met before: previously Dick helped Erin and her French fiancé JB with a moat-related problem at their chateau – now they’re attempting to restore a turreted bedroom.

Elsewhere Tim and Sasha organise a New Year’s Eve party at their south of France château to provide much-needed low-season income, and one-woman DIY machine Fiona is frantically revamping a derelict bedroom for her decidedly picky daughter’s visit.


DIY fanatic Fiona contends with sub-zero temperatures as she sets out to renovate a chateau bedroom for her daughter, who is due to visit in two months, while new owners Erin and JB aim to transform the first floor of their property's south wing.
