When their daughter decided to study abroad in France for a month, Australians Karina and Craig Waters had no idea that they would fall in love with the country themselves. Nor could they have imagined that they would end up owning and restoring an 18th-century Château on the edge of the Pyrénées. Now open to the public, the couple documented the entire renovation and restoration experience on their blog and Instagram, with 270K+ followers watching the transformation from dilapidated to charming. Now that all that work is finished, their channels are filled with aesthetically mesmerizing pictures of the property and land. If you can’t get to Château de Gudanes for a peaceful retreat in person, you can still enjoy the stunning scenery on social media.
