If you’re not sure if living in a chateau is right for you, why not stay at one for a few nights and see if it’s to your liking. The Chateau de Cibras in Lagarde, Occitanie, France is an absolute delight. Purchased by the architect in 2017, restored and opened for short stays in summer 2021. welcome to the next.
While the first floor was inhabited (just like the French of the 1950s), the second floor had long been unused and largely untouched (except for a new roof). Since it was left in its original state, the wallpaper and flooring materials were also old. We were able to reprint many of the wallpapers using the original papers and pigments and even had a team in Morocco to redo some of the tiles. Where the original features could not be reproduced, the same colors were used to reproduce them as faithfully as possible. As an interior, I wanted to place furniture in a room that stands in the space. However, removing them will not destroy existing rooms. I love contemporary furniture and have been collecting it for a long time, so designing the interior of the chateau was a great opportunity to declutter my Swiss home.
If it wasn’t nice enough To the north is a medieval-style building that was originally a stable, and to the south is a concrete and steel building. The stables have now been converted into apartments and the warehouse area under the roof (where herbs and sausages were once stored) is now a studio. Where the castle’s caretaker and gardener once lived with his family, it is now the Maison de his meta year, a symmetrically designed building with five rooms and one of his suites. There is a large shared kitchen, salon and private garden. Also available for rental welcome to the next.
