The Australian couple behind the restoration of Chateau de Purnon is Felicity Selkirk and Tim Holding.
The two share a passion for all things French – history and culture, gastronomy and wine and, of course, architecture.
Felicity runs a website design company with clients spanning four continents.
After more than two decades in politics Tim retired to chase new adventures – working and studying overseas.
That path led eventually to Chateau de Purnon where Felicity and Tim have embarked on an enormous project to save this remarkable estate.
