To become a participant, people have to buy online ticket on There is only 500.000 tickets that are offered.

Ruth plans to build a cheap environmental-friendly house from the fund she collected. 5 percent of the income she gets from the ticket sell will be donated to St. Petroc’s Society, a charity organization for homeless people in Cornwall, England. 

The rest will be donated to a community that Ruth organizes, The Eco Village Development Company, which focused on building cheap houses with low operational cost.

“Cheap house is one of my interests, because for me everyone has a right to have a home,” Ruth said.

The chateau had been renovated and is located in East Dordogne. There are a lot of antiques, interesting furniture, and even open fireplace. The chateau also has swimming pool, large dining room, an elegant living room and a kitchen that can contain 20 people.
