Not much information about this gorgeous Château… Internally the building had some clear signs of modernization in comparison to the much older external architecture. Château Sous Les Nuages or the Castle in the Clouds appears to have been left empty with much of the belongings left behind. There are some hint to attempts to renovate the place post abandonment, tool catalogues and timbers and other building materials but this castle appear to have been left once again…
Visited with Andy de Kay of Behind Closed Doors as part of our little Tour de France trip which was very fruitful in terms of locations and photographs. We arrived in the dark and made our entry in the light just before sunrise. We both headed upstairs straight away to shoot the top 2 floors in the early light. Stunned by some of the amazing features and furniture left behind we probably spent a little longer shooting upstairs than we had intended to. As I headed downstairs to find Andy I was greeted with a giddy grin as Andy pointed me towards the Dining room. Gobsmacked by the set up that had been left there, the huge dining table full prepared with china cutlery and the beautiful wood features and hanging chandelier, I quickly fired off a few shots before entering the equally stunning lounge full of belongings left by the previous occupants. One of the more interesting features for me was the children’s play room full of stuffed toys and rocking horses, quite an unusual sight.
