The French Chateau items can, so far, only be found under the Decorations tab of the marketplace. There are five items available for purchase, which will, with the exception of the Lavender Knoll, be in stores for the next 28 days (the Lavender Knoll will be gone in a week’s time). [UPDATE] It appears that the “7 day” marking on the Lavender Knoll was a mistake on the part of Zynga, who has now updated the item to the same deadline as the other French Chateau items – as of this update, they will be available for 26 more days.
The five items provide the ingredients to build your very own French garden, with tall hedges, fencing and flower pots being available for coins (1000, 700, and 2200, respectively), and larger items like the Forest and the Lavender Knoll costing either 10 or 4 Farm Cash.
The Farm Cash items are, as has become standard, available to send to friends in-game, while the coin items are for use on your own farm only.
With such a long deadline for four out of these five items, it leads this farmer to believe that the French Chateau theme of items will be a pretty big one, with the extended expiration date allowing fans to get a look at all of the items (since it’s highly likely more will be coming in the future) before deciding whether or not to transform their farms into a Provencal paradise. Or, perhaps Zynga is just being really nice right now, not forcing you to make an immediate purchase. I’m sticking with the former, but for now, only time will tell.
