Due to transmit early 2021
Chateau DIY is back. Filming started at the end of 2019 and continued throughout 2020. With a year of lockdowns and travel bans, our fantastic family of chateau owners face huge obstacles to keep their chateaus up and running whilst also trying to maintain their businesses and renovation projects.
Familiar faces return as they battle to restore their once unloved buildings into the fairytale castles they have always dreamt of. With jaw-dropping renovations in the caves under one chateau, a luminous entrance hall makeover in another, alongside the never-ending work on a gite – series 5 continues to bring all the drama and tension viewers know and love but ultimately basks in the beautiful makeovers that our chateaux families achieve.
We introduce 2 new ‘chateau shopping’ couples, desperate to leave the UK and bag a dream home in France; welcome a brand new family to the series; and spend time getting to know our families in more detail as we follow some beautifully-crafted personal project stories.
