Default Chateau de Bagnac

This fairy tale Chateau is situated in the Haute Vienne, Dept 87 above Limoges. It's easy to find and quite spectacular. Loft to rot 1949 it still has some amazingly extravagant carvings which only highlight how much money must have been spent on it .
There are some great pictures of how it used to be here

It's a great place to spend an afternoon if you don't mind the nosy sheep or the fact that what was once the front lawn is now the farmers dung heap.

In a land of woodworm and termites I really didn't fancy going any further up this oak spiral staircase. There are 2 of these - another runs up the side of the chapel. Maybe if I wasn't on my own or so fat....
