I know it has become quite fashionable to purchase run-down chateaux in France and renovate them without speaking a word of French and then renting them out to other Anglos for weddings and parties. But there are beautiful manor houses in other countries as well. The ones below are certainly not looking too run-down.

I love azulejo so it’s the Portuguese for me please!
More Hungarian/Romanian castles in future please â I do enjoy your Friday picture curations. I meant to say re last week that Banffy is the most brilliant describer of mossy green forest landscapes. I sometimes think his books were illustrated, or I saw I screen version as my memory of the Carpathians is so vivid. Just the books though â have never been there! Shelley

His descriptions of the landscapes are so, so vivid and marvellous, I know exactly what you mean! I will certainly investigate some castles from that part of the world – I think I may have done a post or two on them already.
They’re all gorgeous
Oh, they’re so lovely, Marina Sofia! If I had the kind of money you need for that sort of thing, I could see myself living in almost any of them. The one in Canton Vaud is especially appealing; I’ve always loved vineyards and wine country. But any of them would be great.
Gosh, those are stunning – the modest Swiss one appeals to me most, I think!
Ooohhh…..I need that Montreux view!
yep the last one is just too gorgeous!
The last two are lovely. I much prefer small / modest to large / showy!
Love these. There’s a TV series called Escape to the Chateau and it chronicles the Strawbridge family’s renovation they did on a chateau they bought in France. They also did a second TV series (Escape to the Chateau DIY) where they follow other Brits who bought castles in France to do the same. Lovely stuff!
