    i love it. what a gorgeous château.
    all the furniture except for the kitchen table must be tossed out and burned, and the bathroom has to be redone but it has great potential. i want it.
    also, it's in southwest france, not too far from bordeaux. beautiful region.

    I wouldn't want to live there, but perhaps stay there for a weekend or something.

    Pretty nice, actually. I was expecting something much worse based on the word "ratty."

    I like the exposed timbers here and there, and the floors, the windows, the light, the stonework. Really lovely.

    The outside is gorgeous, as is the space inside. But the decor is a big disappointment, and the bathroom sucks. So much more could be done with the place.
