Our friend and All Souls kindred spirit Christine has recently taken a field trip to Château des Anges Déchus, Gerbert of Aurillac’s home in the Cantal and Château du Sailhant in real life. Christine, who lives in the Auvergne (lucky), has taken some spectacular photos of this property, which you can admire on her Instagram account. The property is carefully and lovingly maintained by its current owner, architect and conservationist, Joseph Pell Lombardi. We asked Christine to give us her impressions of the castle and she was happy to oblige. Thank you Christine!

If the Auvergne wasn’t in your bucket list, you will want to add it after seeing all the magnificent photos that Christine has taken during a recent visit to Château Dauphin (Pontgibaud), Deborah’s inspiration for Sept-Tours in the Auvergne. If you haven’t had a chance to see them yet, she’s posted several pictures on her Instagram feed, @Chrystylen.
We were completely mesmerized by her photos, so we decided to contact her. She was very generous to chat with us and allowed us to share her pictures in this post. We learned that Christine lives in the Auvergne (lucky gal!), so the All Souls Trilogy is very special to her. Anyone wants to join a tour?
