His followers were quick to reply, with one writing: "I love a starry night. Means it’ll be cold tho (as you know obvs) no blanket of cloud to hold heat it." Another added: "We have a place in the Mayenne not far from you and whenever we are over there it amazes me how many more stars you can see without the light pollution. We love it."

While most of the renovation is now complete, the chateau is a project that will never end, as Angel told HELLO!: "The house is evolving and things are being moved around to how they were always meant to be and we have endless outbuildings."

Both Dick and Angel have their own areas of expertise and Angel has used her considerable design skills to create a home that is whimsical, elegant and respectful of the building's history. 

Dick added that they had no plans to move anywhere after creating their perfect home, saying: "I've got no intention of going anywhere. I'm going to be planted here. I get a headache even thinking about moving."
