YOU couldn't be blamed for wanting to jet off to France after tuning into Escape to the Chateau.
Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree's idyllic home is open to visitors – here's how you can visit for the day…
How much does a day at Dick Strawbridge and Angel's Escape to the Chateau home cost?
Dick and Angel charge £230 for a day tour of the Château de la Motte-Husson.
They call the tours "days of decadence" where, as well as getting to see the Chateau and its grounds, guests get the opportunity to meet Dick and Angel, as well as feast on lunch and afternoon tea at the chateau.
Due to the Covid pandemic, however, these tours have been temporarily halted.
The tours are expected to resume when restrictions begin to lift.
If you're on a budget, there's also a cheaper way to see the grounds.
The couple actually charge guests £75 for a "working day in the garden", with the website saying: "Yes to be frankly honest we are charging you to come and work!
"And in return you have to help make the place beautiful!'"
The chateau is located in the Pays de la Loire region of France. The journey is a three hours stint from Paris for a shift in the gardens.
The website added further guidelines and put: "There is a degree of manual work expected – though some jobs will be gentler than others – no matter what the weather we will be outside working, so please dress appropriately."
Angel and Dick also sell glamping nights for £350 in "geodesic domes" in the chateau's grounds.
What is the Escape to the Chateau home like?
Dick and Angel's home, named Chateau-de-la-Motte Husson, has 45 rooms, 78 windows, 12 acres and one moat.
It is a 19th-century chateau in the Pays de la Loire region of France.
But when they bought it, the castle had no electricity, heating or running water – but they have transformed it over the course of six years.
Of course, the easiest way to see the Chateau during a global pandemic is to tune into Dick and Angel's Channel 4 series Escape To The Chateau.
And their TV show has only boosted their sales – the couple say they got "a massive spike" in interest and are now fully booked until 2022.
