  • A shame it would probably be cheaper to build a replica than restore it. Looks pretty awesome
  • A beautiful castle. This one should be restored.
  • You're awesome with this stuff, Hoohill. So if this castle has been abandoned since 1932 is it just owned by France in general? Do you think people are squatting in it?
  • Doubt there are any squatters, it's in a small town of less than a thousand people in a minor department. Also no roof.
  • It's apparently owned by a bank today.
  • Ah, ok thanks, that's what I was looking for
  • You could probably buy it for cheap, though I imagine it's pretty worthless.
  • /u/Hoohill is my /u/unidan . He's kind of my hero.
  • That is one sharp analogy
  • I say its more along the lines the owner has left it to rot.
  • I think the new occupants have green hair.
  • if you google map "La Mothe Chandeniers, Les Trois-Moutiers, France" you can see the front of it on street view. Pretty cool
  • This is fantastic! If I were rich I'd restore it.
  • Dear Santa...
  • Omggggg I want to explore so bad. Any furniture still inside or just stone walls?
  • I'm assuming mostly just stone walls because of the fire.
  • I want to go there.
