This story might sound like something out of a movie, but it’s absolutely real – and absolutely magical. Karina and Craig Waters had been hunting for a countryside home in France for a long time, and they were growing discouraged. Miraculously, their son found something incredible online: An fairytale mansion in the Midi-Pyrénées called the Chateau de Gudanes. The home was in rough shape, but one look at the exterior, and the couple knew that it had to be theirs. It’s an 18th century neoclassical ruin that’s been falling apart for years – but when you stumble upon a property as good as this, you do whatever it takes to revive it.
