The couple restored the castle.
Karina and Craig waters (Craig and Karina Waters) – Australian couple from Perth. The husband and wife wanted to purchase a small house in the French countryside. After an unsuccessful search they were ready to give up when I stumbled upon the announcement of the sale of the castle. Chateau de Gudanes in Verdana in MIDI-Pyrenees.
After a bit of thought in 2013 the couple bought the castle for 350 thousand dollars. Karina and Craig waters are going to turn the castle into a luxury hotel. Before beginning of rehabilitation works, the pair was forced to seek the permission of local authorities.
The previous owner of the mansion, a foreign investment company originally wanted to buy the 96-room luxury apartment. Fortunately, they were denied permission to build. The couple, however, wanted to restore the former glory of the castle and keep as much of the original materials. That is why they were able to get permission for renovations.
