Before we start telling you all about this beautiful abandoned home i want to state that all the pictures are made by Soul photography
Marcel, a man who had ended up at the end of his life, alone in a castle that was too big for him and had too many memories reminding him of the ever-present past. In the year 2006 Marcel decided that he had enough of it, on a particular day that year Marcel packed all his bags and left to be never seen again. He went on a world trip and died somewhere abroad the people around him believe that he had last been seen in Thailand.
When we walked upon the property of this castle we were amazed by the architectural style of this castle, never in my life had I seen a castle with this appearance before. The castle has a neo-gothic style and has been constructed around the 19th century. What we found most spectacular are the 4 towers on each corner of the place. They transform the place from an ordinary villa into a spectacular castle.
Marcel the owner of the castle did not live alone in this place, he had a family of five children and we counted around 6 bedrooms in total. On the top floor, we even encountered a children’s bedroom. There were also many wedding and family pictures around the place. It was sad to see how a castle that once flourished with life has been deserted over time.
Marcel was a wealthy man in the heyday of his life, he was a typical French man. To provide for his family, he had a prosperous wine distributing business and from the profits of it, he provided for his family. All around the castle you can find little artefacts of this occupation. The reason why he ended up alone is unknown to us. we want to thank Marcel for his life and we hope the world trip was worth it. What an amazing place!
Have fun watching the documentary! We love you all… <3
