Margit Hulshof and Frans de Vilder bought the domaine de Chassy in 1997. there were no facilities when they moved in, no electricity ,no water, no heating.. After a lot of hard work with help from family, friends, locals they finally succeeded in restoring the house and the outbuilding in the local style, keeping the authentic elements like the tomettes, beams etc.
