Castle Hunters on HGTV - anyone watch?

Jump to last reply

I taped the new show (I don't remember if it was on this morning or last night), about people looking for a second home in Europe - only this time, a castle.

Loved the one set in France; they saw several places in the Loire and Burgundy, with a budget around $1.0-1.6 million. Oh, man! Some of these places were gorgeous. My husband, hearing me daydreaming, made comments on the cost of upkeep, heating, "yard work" (I don't think you can really refer to ten acres in that way...hence the quotes). Well, sure, I know we'll never own one, but it's fun to live vicariously.

The second show featured a couple from Washington DC looking for a place in Ireland. In contrast to the French chateaux, two of the three castles in Ireland were obviously defensive, and straight up. All I could think of was their two year old (not) navigating the tight circular staircase. But the views!

Not sure if this should be posted in Europe or the Lounge, but it was sure fun to see!
