Next Episode of Escape to the Chateau is
Escape to the Chateau follows the story of Dick and Angel as they buy an abandoned French chateau and with ingenuity, imagination and sheer hard graft, bring its 45 rooms and 12 acres of land back to life in order to restore it to its former 19th century glory.
As winter descends on the chateau and Christmas looms, Dick and Angel Strawbridge rush to complete their huge to-do list before the arrival of the family from England for a grand French Yuletide. The lift installation is testing Dick's ingenuity and enthusiasm to the max, while Angel continues to uncover treasures in the attic, including an historic collection of old vinyl records. Dick and Angel rush to get all their ducks in a row as eventually the fires are lit and the Christmas lights sparkle, and the heart of the once deserted 19th century chateau begins to beat again.
Dick and Angel Strawbridge continue their adventures in France for a third series. It's two and a half years since the couple swapped their flat in Southend for a 19th century Chateau in France - which cost them only £280,000. The intrepid couple have spent the time converting the Chateau De La Motte Husson from a derelict sleeping beauty into the fairy tale castle of their dreams. But with only half of the 45 rooms completed, there is still a huge amount of work to be done - including growing their fledgling events business, converting the outbuildings, and bringing the walled garden back to life. With more than 20 rooms still in a state of serious disrepair, Angel wants to create a special retreat for the whole family - with plans for a stripes and safari theme. But do they have a serious roof problem? Is Angel's purchase of a clapped-out Citroen van a good idea? And what have the local tree surgeons done to the lime trees at the front of the building?
It's Spring and Dick buys a tractor, with plans to tame the walled garden. Angel designs a new boudoir with black walls and mirrors. The couple also consider truffle farming.
Life at the Chateau continues. It's late spring and the wedding season is looming. With eight booked, Dick and Angel's lives are about to get busier than ever. Angel transforms the Citroën into a stunning mobile bar. Dick and his builder mates clear 150 years of rubbish from the stone barn and hope to turn a stable into a flat for Angel's parents. Angel visits a master florist while Dick seeks a solution to the pollarded lime trees at the front of the property. The loss of shade from the trees has put Dick in Angel's bad books and tensions are rising.
