    Default Chateau Verdure, France - December 2015


    The history

    Mostly stolen from @The_Raw

    The chateaux is situated in a wealthy area outside Paris and not the easiest place to find its very well hidden amongst the trees. I couldn’t find much history about the place, but it was clearly once a very grand house which has been left to rot. I found various stories about a couple who had lived there and the wife died and the husband left it as he couldn’t face living there anymore.

    The Explore

    I knew I was heading off to France with @slayaaaa & @MrStewie and started searching for locations. I found @The_Raws post on 28DL and decided we had to go…..

    After speaking to a few people and chatting to my “French connection” I had a rough location and we headed in that direction.

    It’s crazy how downhill it has gone in the few months since The Raw visited it, still very photogenic though and worth a visit

    The doll at the piano freaked us out a little on entry and the floors were a bit iffy. But overall I loved the place and it would make a great resto project


    As always enjoy the pics

    A creepy doll playing the piano - that's creepy. This place is falling to pieces. What a shame as it must have been quite a house in its day. I like the ornate bannister and the snooker table.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
