Meet the owners: Jane and Steve Hiscock

Jane and Steve’s shared passion for historic buildings, restoration and everything French, is realised in Château du Jonquay – and now Petit Jonquay, the fully renovated farmhouse.

While Jane and Steve spend the majority of their time in Melbourne, their holidays over the past 25 years have been spent exploring France. While looking to purchase a Paris apartment a few years ago, they attended a lunch party at Château Du Jonquay held by the then owner, New York interior designer Todd Hase. After falling in love with the Château, surrounded by beautiful fields and gardens, fantastic markets and Michelin-star restaurants, they bought it from Mr Hase in 2010.

Three years later, Jane enlisted local tradesmen to help restore the Château’s stable house. It was an exciting project that saw many friends dropping in to help paint and enjoy the local produce.

“As a family, we love our holidays at Château Du Jonquay – summer by the pool, or a white winter for Christmas – we are sure you’ll enjoy this peaceful paradise as much as we do.” Jane Hiscock
