Chateau Clairdome

Deep inside a hilly forest, this marvelous 19th-century chateau is hidden. This castle consists of around 20 rooms and is made out of bricks that were covered with plaster. The facade also contains a few beautiful Anglo-Saxon styled stone ornamental elements. It must have been a wonderful place to live. Nowadays it’s totally unhabitable. The state of Interieur is declining rapidly due to the collapsed roof.

Chateau Clairdome

The castle was built by a couple who were part of a rich Britsh industrialist family. This family established a large cotton manufacturing business in France. One of their sons eventually served as Prime Minister and as an Ambassador of France when he moved back to Britain.

Unsure about the reason why it eventually got abandoned I’m sure nature will take good care of the castle. Lots of plants made it into the entrance hall already. Creating a pleasant green spectacle to appreciate.
