I would like to dream on love, greenery and old romance... reviving old times
About the chateau
Within the beautiful countryside of 'Pas-de-Calais' in France, there was an old romantic chateau in the middle of a beautiful garden, divided in two by a lovely flowing river. It’s still a very peaceful place, filled with positivism and nature, yet with the little village at close range. This inspiring place is still here: "Reveries a l’Authie" is situated on a romantic estate, borded by the Authie river, with a 0,6 ha parc and home grounds just a few steps away from the towncenter of Auxi le Château, about 125 km from Calais.
The castle-manor, rich in history, was built in 1740 and contains original details as the old romantic foyer, ornemental fireplaces, wooden panneling and stainted glass. The spacious dininghall, with ceilings of almost 4 meters high, was used for game banquets by the count and countess of Hesdin. Still present and in original condition is the ornamented lodging of the hounds. The estate breaths a serene tranquility and is a perfect place to return to. The whole offers: an inspiration for parties and other occasions or just to relax in busy times.
After an entire life with adventures; the raising of two beautiful children, nice and beautiful jobs and also living in the most fantastic houses, I had ‘reveries’ about living, sharing, and dreaming at a castle in France...
Until April 2021 I had a completely different, wonderful, life in the Netherlands. With two fantastic children, many good friends, a nice job and a beautifully renovated 1930s house in Leiden, I had a good life, a more than good life..
