FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “From dream to reality: Owning a French castle” – below is their description.
France has more than 2,000 #castles of all kinds. Across the country, enthusiasts are willing to make huge sacrifices to become owners. A childhood dream for some, a family inheritance for others, or even for the love of old stones: everyone has their own reasons. However, once proud castle owners, all are faced with the same reality: these monuments are generally a huge financial burden. The smallest #renovation work usually costs millions of euros. As a result, today’s owners are seeking innovative solutions – such as #crowdfunding – to make their castle last.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
