Quick pic before going up my drive.

2 chateau's within a km of my place here in French France...the one in pic is currently used as a school activities centre I think and can also be rented for holidays, with staff as well.
Just realised your pic is the one as above....info off the pic?
The other was 'supposedly' owned by Ralf Schumacher or part-owned at least. Last I heard about it was that it is a conference centre but never seen any movements in or out but it is well kept.

Nothing from the picture just a good googler :-D

I read your post as if the rides were in the UK, sleet and snow, but there was something unusual about the building. I enjoy a decent treasure hunt so amused myself for a while to try and pin down where it was.

It did scream Chateau, so had a quick scan of images for "Chateau 72800" and out it popped!

Very probably Timmo. Didn't check too closely, just assumed as Old'uns lists a 90 Honda Beat , that is what it was.

A mucky Lapierre, well done for a quick jobbie. 😎

I "think' the Pug is just up the road.?
The Beat (yellow) is on the Streetview image, hiding behind some trees / bamboo.
Look for the picnic table...

The angle does make the rear lights look Very similar, from memory, the beat is quite Tiny compared to the 306?

There used to be a Sole Beat in St. Austell area middle/late 90's, a few cappuccinos, good lady was really keen on them!
