Many of the aristocratic piles in the UK have been sold to The National Trust, and the previous owners given an area to live in. They act as kind of custodians of the property, excellent solution IMO, as death duties made this kind of living prohibitively expensive and unviable; with this arrangement the upkeep is cared for by entrance fees and subscriptions etc.

but if they are that rich you would think they would use the Chateau for holidays not as a B&B to earn money Whistle
Don't you think it's still possible using the chateau both for bussines and also as place to spend holiday sometime  Wink.


I see many people/rich do this...... they open their chateau for public to earn more money, mostly to support the cost for taking care the château and paying the property tax.
This is one example http://www.frenchvacation.com/

Most of the titled British landowners open their stately homes to the public in order to raise money to pay for the upkeep of the enormous piles.  Diana's brother (Earl Spencer) has even built a Diana museum in the stables at Althorp to help bring in paying customers.
I think that the smart way to do Yes

I was just thinking of the stately homes here. Most are opne to the public in some shape or form and a lot of them are now used as hotels like these.

in france almost too many folk say they have nobility and title connections. My friend had a maid in paris whose father said he was a comte , but looking at  marie's  last name her ancestor was a horse soldier in the french army.

Yes I know many of the aristocracy open their homes to the public but not as B&B's.  Somehow I can't see Earl Spencer serving up sausages and eggs to people in the morning.
BTW I didn't realise Marie was from an aristocratic family.

Marie's mum's "mas' is not a French stately home.  France has plenty of thse and they are called Chenonceaux, Amboise, Chantilly etc.... Roll Eyes

Marie's mum's place is a dime a dozen in France, esepcially Provence.  Roll Eyes

I was rummaging the internets, and found pictures of Marie that I've never seen before. They are a bit grainy, but nevertheless show the "kissy-huggy" person Marie is...and also that she has a very warm relationship w/stepsons...and not as BB, or other rags try to portray.

IMO marie is by no means pretty, but she is unaffected, and unsnobbish, which i prefer over mary who seems so vain. good on you marie, you fell in love with a prince, and youre doing what comes naturally, remaining unaffected by it all.

I agree,she's not a raving beauty but she doesn't act stuck up or look as though she's trying to be something other then herself unlike Mary

ITA, she's not a knock-out beauty but still very pretty. She seems content and happy which works in her favor, unlike her SIL.
