Legendary Homes and Hotels – The Guyot Family: A Life in Castles

The Mother, the Father, the four children… Every member of the Guyot family owns at least one Château . Their passion is renovation. Alice, 27, is the sole caretaker of Bridoire, the former home left to rot by Bokassa in Périgord… A stone’s throw from there, Louis, 25, has just bought a châteux with a hundred rooms; he is knee deep in debt, and has no choice but to make it profitable by opening it to tourists. Édouard, 29, has embarked on 20 years worth of work. He took on a crazy gamble: to save an 18th-century jewel in the ruins. Lancelot, 32, has an even bigger vision: to restore the historic heritage of the town of Tonnerre, in the Yonne region. They inherited this passion from their parents. Starting from scratch, Catherine and Jacques Guyot have saved historic monuments from abandonment all their lives: fifteen or so in 40 years of passion and sacrifice.
