CnP: Agree! It must be cool to tell your friends that you parents have a castle! But I can imagine how much work needs to be done to continue with all these works! Do you have any idea? Have you made rough estimates?
FK: A lot of work has already been done and paid for both by us and by the state of France. We restored the roof on the Oratory Tower, we completed works in the Staircase tower, also the restoration of the keep is ongoing right now, etc, etc, You know, the castle would have probably died without it. That's why it's important to focus on what we can achieve now rather then get desperate about what we cannot do immediately. In the future, we would love to save a part of the main building, like putting a roof on it, remaking floors, installing windows and stairs. But we totally realize that it would be impossible without patrons. For us it would be too expensive, we just can't pay for all of it. If we are lucky to find a patron, it could be mutually beneficial partnership!
