FAQ

One was recorded in English Language (château de Bostz), other were recorded in French language. We made translations and added english subtitles on them.

Recording all these programs everywhere in France represented a huge investment (travel expenses, equipment/gears, accomodation in France for more than 2 months, time to record and edit videos, translation, subtitles, …).

By contributing (to watch these exclusive tours), you support our work and allow us to continue providing you new exclusive tours for non french speaking community.

Good question 🙂

So Châteaux is a well known (French speaking) media dedicated to castles.

We exist since 2019.

We created a printed castle guide, then developed a digital guide, then started (a year and half ago) to broadcast live programs with castle owners.

Until now, we mainly focused on the French speaking community (as it is our native language).

But these last months, we received a lot of requests asking us to broadcast programs in English.

So we decided to create this series of exclusive tours of castles, for English speaking castle enthusiasts!

The average duration of a program/tour is 25 minutes.

From 16 minutes up to 50+ minutes depending on the castle.

Once you have a FULL PASS or you become a member, you will immediately receive an email notification with the link to watch these Exclusive Tours.

We will be happy to answer quickly to your questions!
