La Socelière

In 1999, Giuseppe Laviani and his wife Giacomina purchased La Socelière, a 17th-century chateau in the Loire Valley for $500,000. Even after investing another $500,000 to restore the property, they were able to keep it practical and non-stuffy. During the summers, four generations of the Laviani family go shoeless.
